Jayne has been a member of Vogue Fitness CrossFit Yas since 2014 and is an incredible person whom we love having as part of our community. Jayne has worked with Coach Elliot since the day she walked through our doors and has kindly provided us with an account of their first session and their journey towards Jayne achieving her weight loss goals.
“August of 2014 I Google searched for the best gym in Abu Dhabi nearest to my home address and Vogue Fitness showed up. It was a brand new and upcoming gym that was opening that coming week so I thought I'd give it a go.
I'd heard of CrossFit but I didn't actually know what it was.
I was in two minds if I should look it up but to this day I'm forever grateful I didn't as there would have been no way I would have gotten in contact!!!
On opening day I had my very first personal training with Coach Elliot. He remembers that day a lot clearer than I do, as he still likes to remind me of the day he made me cry!! For me all I can remember is pain, like someone had set my body on fire from the inside out!! I genuinely believe that for a moment he thought that I wouldn't actually come back, but for me I was hooked and knew it was just the start to a great working relationship.
From then on I would train with Elliot 3x times per week, he pushed me to breaking point every single session and I grew to accept that no matter what lame excuse I gave he would just push me that much harder.
His genuine passion for what he does is extremely contagious and his knowledge on how the human body actually works in phenomenal. Within 6months I was able to loose 20kg, my fitness levels had doubled, I was happy within myself again and felt confident enough to start taking classes.
I've now been doing personal training with Elliot for two and a half years and I look forward to many many more.
He's not only an incredible coach and athlete but an incredible person! He will continue to achieve great things in life and I can't wait to see what's next for Coach Elliot Simmonds”.
