“My Journey started when I met Nadera Amini and she inspired me as well as many other women in the community. Losing weight was so hard for me in the beginning so I was glad to have met Nadera. She inspired me so much. She was in shape herself and was full of so much knowledge. She helped me find the exact workout and strategy that worked for my body. She helped not only lose weight but keep the weight off.
Nadera encouraged me to join the classes that she held in the community. I followed her to wherever she was holding classes. I went from community centres, youth centres, gyms and even faith centres. I didn’t care as long as she was holding the classes as I knew only her classes could get me the best results. I went to Aerobics, Legs/Bums and Tums, Yoga, Pilates, Insanity and Full Body Workout. I began to realize that her role as a trainer included her role as a fitness companion on my journey. As exercising became part of my regular regime I noticed something that I had never experienced before… I was starting to enjoy and look forward to training – and I was looking great. I have seen an amazing difference over the years. I have lost weight. I was size 14 in clothes and now am a size 10. She encourages us during the classes to work harder and is continuously pushing us and guiding us on the right techniques during her classes as well giving us excellent nutritional advice.
Her latest passion was to hold classes for women and girls with disabilities encouraging them to stay active and motivated and working faith centres and religious groups so she can target women from different ethnic backgrounds and races. She now holds classes for these groups in the community on a regular weekly basis.”
