Brent has had his clients achieve many different things-here
is another about Arthur
This is an amazing story about Arthur...
It was only about 6 months after the photo of him in 2001 that
he ended up in hospital with a suspected stroke. They placed him
in the men's cancer ward where one of the patients died whilst
he was there. This was of course a turning point for him to have
a good hard look at his lifestyle and mindset about life.
He quit the smokes and cut down on the beers and started moving.
It took him around 18 months to lose 28 kg through good old
fashioned, eat less and move more.
Arthur has been
getting fitter since he started training at
Healthier Life and even more
amazing is as he gets older. He has become a lot more focused on
his health and is now a fantastic role model for his wife and
three kids who now join him in fun runs.
So the story about
Arthur's two most recent photos...
At the start of last year Arthur set fitness goals to drop some
weight as he had put on some weight after overseas holidays. In
previous years had said that he wanted to lose some weight but
never wrote it down on an email for me, it just shows how
amazing the power of writing your goals down is!
So after reading his
email Arthur decided to take my advice and do the
HEALTHIER LIFE EATING PLAN GROUP
through metabolic jumpstart which was the key for his weight
loss last year. It taught him how to eat the right foods at the
right time of the day to get the results he was after. In 4
weeks Arthur lost 8kgs and then he kept eating this way and has
lost a further 7kg since. So he went from 84kgs to 69kgs late
last year and has kept it off since, which at the start of the
year he was happy to just get under 75 kg.
Some very kind words
"I feel the best I ever have with more energy and am not craving
the bad foods like I used to. I am absolutely over the moon with
the results I have achieved and I thank you for that
Brent Durran as I went from a size
34 in jeans to a size 29 -30 (CRAZY!). I suppose a personal
trainer could just get into the groove of taking the payment and
just pump out the same thing day in day out but you are a little
different in the way that you care about your clients results.
You know where everyone is fitness wise and where their
frustrations with reaching their fitness goals. Accountability
is huge thing and I was kept accountable all the way by you
through my fitness journey last year. Now that I have this
important tool and I can revert back to it at any time in the
future. Can't wait to reach my NEW fitness goal with you in
2016!! Thanks again Arthur"
In my 13yrs of personal training this is one of the most amazing fitness achievements I have seen by one of my clients. In under two years Virginia has done a marathon in every state of Australia & all in great times. HUGE congrats from all of us!!

After encouragement from my eldest daughter I joined her in the
Healthier Life Group training sessions at the start of Sept
2012. It has proven to be one of the best things I have done for
myself in quite a long time. Brent's
group training caters for all ages and fitness levels in a very
unique way in which the whole group stays together as one
throughout the session, but with each individual working to
their greatest capacity. I was made to feel very welcome and
comfortable from the first training and now look forward to my
twice weekly doses of exercise, as well as the free social run
on Sunday mornings.
has an amazing way of encouraging and challenging us
as we train. He is more than a trainer doing his job...he is
genuinely interested and committed to each individual...helping
us to set and achieve goals...he really does go above and
beyond. He is not only a trainer but a friend to us all!
In the past five months I have achieved more than I ever
imagined...I now regularly run 10kms on a weekly
basis...something which I never thought I would be doing!
Brent instills self belief
and self confidence which spills over into all facets of life.
With Brent's motivation, we
work hard in our sessions and because of this, and his
dedication, anything is possible. With his help and guidance I
am aiming to complete the half marathon in 2013.
I cannot thank Brent enough
for making me feel 'alive' again...believing in one's self is so
uplifting... I look forward to a happier and healthier future
and a long association with Brent's
Healthier Life Training Group.

Brent has been
my trainer for about 4 years (or more!). During this
time I’ve had 2 children and he’s helped me get back
into shape after each bub. After having my second
baby, I was determined to look fabulous for my 40th
birthday. What began as light sessions gradually
built up in intensity as my fitness returned.

the variety always kept sessions interesting. He
also monitored my nutrition, checking my food diary
regularly. Healthy eating was key to me burning fat
& toning up - it’s not just about exercise.
My goal was
fulfilled. I toned up, I lost about 13 kilos in just
over 4 months, achieved my goal weight & looked
fantastic for my 40th! Now it’s about
maintaining the fitness so it’s good to know
