Brianna Rutherford – 2015 Top 10 Placing

It’s not called the Ultimate Body Challenge for nothing. It definitely is a challenge not only physically but also mentally. A challenge that is absolutley achievable and immensely rewarding. Before the challenge I was on a self destructive downward spiral roller coaster ride that was unquestionably affecting my physical and mental health. A simple impulse phone call to Dene, would be the start to getting off that ride for good. The initial screening was extremely nerve racking, in the back of my mind I knew I had read that there would be photos. I’d put them in the back of my mind for the pure reason that I just didn’t want to think about them, I knew it would actually be proof of what I had been avoiding for a long time I had become a little fatty. It was the confrontational smack in the face I needed. After i had digested all the information given to me and the shock of the photos had worn off. The nervousness slowly turned into excitement throughout the first week of training. It was now stuck in my head the only way from here is up! Week two I now remember as the horrible week. This part challenged me the most physically and mentally my body was trying to work out what I was doing to it. Overloaded on chicken and veges and my favourite peanut butter, I have now learnt the essence of portion control. With the constant support and knowledge from the ultimate body team and a million questions answered that I had asked I was away again laughing. The rest of the 10 weeks went by so fast each week achieving little goals I had set for myself. Its the best feeling and self empowerment to lift that 5kg heavier or run that 3km a little faster and each week emproving your time at the 300 or conditioning. Each week it always amazed me how stronger I was getting, how much further I was running. Running is not my strong suit at all, however it slowly became easier and to my amazement I developed a liking for it. Best of all was how wonderful I felt about it all!! The challenge has built a great foundation for a better healthier, fitter me. After the challenge had finished I couldn’t stop there, ending wasn’t and is not an option. I continue to train on a regular basis, still improving in multiple aspects. Anyone can acheive their goals if they put their minds to it, the desire to acheive is much more powerful than the thought of failure. The greatest satisfaction is being told you can’t do something and proving you can do anything you put your mind to. Thanks Dene your stuck with me now
