I signed up for the 29 Day New Year New Body Program to start the year with a positive focus. I was feeling sluggish and out of shape having not seriously exercised for over 12 months. The information, structure, positivity and personal attention was what I needed to get me on track.

Training sessions with Janet always pushed me beyond my comfort level but with the support of Janet and the other ladies my ability, strength and confidence was increasing.

The clean eating information provided at the start of the program had plenty of variety and some great new alternatives to my not-so-healthy usual options. Along the way the group also offered their own clean

options and variations (both recipes and samples!) to add to the eating plan. I never felt hungry or that I was missing out and still lost 5kg on the program.

Each week Janet provided some great advice to help guide our thinking to make good choices, being positive and kind to ourselves, staying on track and how to stay focussed when the program was over.

Overall this is was a fantastic program! I am stronger and fitter than

before and I feel better from eating a cleaner diet. Importantly what I have learnt from the program will help me make better choices in the


Mandy29 Day New Year New You Program

2017 has been a big year for me professionally, but it has come at a price. I not only completely lost my mojo, but was stuck in a vicious cycle of emotional eating, guilt and negative self-talk. My weight was creeping up, and up, and up and my stress levels were through the roof. I couldn’t face another indulgent slide into Christmas with none of my clothes fitting me and feeling uncomfortable in my own skin.

When I heard Janet was running another 4 week pre-Christmas challenge, I wanted so much to join but managed to talk myself out of it half a dozen times. Haven’t I lost weight on my own before? Surely I can do it again? What could 4 weeks do anyway? At the 11th hour I told that little voice to be quiet and emailed Janet to sign me up before I could change my mind again. I cannot tell you how glad I am that I did!

Training sessions were tough (464m of lunges anyone?) but achievable, with Janet’s encouragement and ability to adapt exercises to accommodate all fitness levels and any injuries. She made us believe we could do it, so we did. We might have sworn like sailors while dragging that sled around the oval but we did it! I went into the challenge wanting to reset my mindset, to have healthy choices the default setting and not something I was going to do “tomorrow“. Not only did I achieve this, but I lost 7cm from my waist and 2kg. My clothes fit again and I am excited about 2018.

I loved the 29 day program!

Such a great bunch of supportive and hilarious women.

I decided to get involved because of some unhelpful

eating patterns that were leaving me frequently

exhausted and unmotivated.  The things that worked for me when I was younger were no longer working (the joys of middle age!).

I have successfully changed my most unhelpful habits (chips and wine on a daily basis) and lost enough weight to be able to get back into some of my favourite clothes! Winning!

Thanks Janet for all your support and for sharing your knowledge!

I was pretty sure that I was training hard and eating MOSTLY ok but I seemed to be getting nowhere. My motivation was slipping and more “treats” were creeping into my diet. I needed a ‘kick in the butt’ (or sled in the butt as the case may be ha ha ha ha). I didn’t sign up to the 4 week challenge to lose kilos or become a size 4, I just needed the expertise to help me figure out what I could do. My “immediate” goal of the challenge was improved definition (with a bit of fat loss on the way).

I got WAAAAAYYY more out of this challenge than I could have ever hoped for. Not only did I achieve my goal (with just a few “tweaks” rather than massive changes that I was less likely to stick to) but I have managed to start reprogramming my brain. I used to think I couldn’t eat “bad food” and I was depriving myself/missing out on all of the delicious treats which only made me crave them more but with Janet’s help, I no longer see it as deprivation – I actually just don’t even want these things in the first place. The challenge also introduced me to my new favourite concept “Whole Foods vs Soul Foods” and helped me to be a bit kinder to myself and actually allow me to ENJOY life.

Janet offered awesome support, was knowledgeable and made the changes WORK for me. The workouts were challenging as all hell but boy did they help and helped with building that mental strength to transfer to all aspects of food/exercise/life. The weekly topics helped to focus me and put fairly normal concepts into a way that made you think “this really isn’t that hard, why aren’t I just doing it”. 

I have never really been one for training as part of a group but the 4 Week Challenge really delivers. I would absolutely recommend it for anyone willing to put in the work and looking for that extra bit of a push to recalibrate.

L4 Week Pre-Xmas Challenge

Having not run a single kilometre in more than 7 years following three ankle operations and two babies, I signed up to Achieving You’s 6 Week Running Program with much trepidation and nervous anticipation. However, the program was paced for all types and fitness levels, and I never felt out or place or that I was too slow to participate. The group was full of lovely encouraging normal people (non-marathon types!), and Janet designed sessions that were interesting and challenging. Over the course of the program I went from running 3 kms to 8 kms, improved my pace and technique, lost weight and gained fitness, as well as reinvigorated my motivation to run as a regular part of my training routine.

I have recently completed the 10 week lifestyle challenge at Achieving You Stafford.  I have been part of a previous challenge and knew that participating in the challenge would help me focus on my exercise routine and diet.  Jude is a great trainer who is focused on ensuring that everyone can participate in the training sessions and works to achieve their goals.  I enjoyed each session whether it was in the studio or out and about.  I finished the 10 weeks feeling healthier, happier and looking forward to exercising. Participating in the 10 week challenge has got me back to Achieving You and I am looking forward to the continued results!

Megan Benham 10 Week New Year Lifestyle Challenge

I first started doing PT with Janet 5 or 6 years ago following an injury which required rehab. I had already been going to gym classes, but as a result of the injury realized I was not as strong as I had thought, and lost a lot of confidence. Janet helped me regain function, strength and confidence. Janet has always shown interest in my goals, and has taken the time to know me as a person.  She is encouraging and optimistic and I trust her implicitly. I know that she won’t put me in a situation where I get hurt, and if she tells me I can do a particular exercise, I believe her. I have never been fitter, and as an added bonus, pt is cheaper and more effective for me than therapy 🙂

I love this challenge! This is the “get it done” challenge. You are about to hit peak time of the year and you are worried the wheels are going to fall off, but you don’t want them to. This is the challenge that keeps you on track, on target and in control of the eating, drinking and festivities. I am not talking about forgetting Christmas all together, I am talking about teaching your strategies to make good decisions so you finish the year feeling happy with yourself and your body.

Over 4 weeks we will have 1 session a week which is mainly high intensity, challenging you mentally and physically, but also use our face to face time to nut out the important stuff to help you cope during the Christmas period.

This year there is an option to upgrade your program to both sessions! If you are feeling like you aren’t getting the sessions in that you want to, or need extra accountability around this time of the year, it’s the option for  you.

Start: 11 November

Finish: 4 December

Trainer: Janet

Session: Monday 5am OR Wednesday 7pm        60 minutes (choose 1 or upgrade to 2!)
