Tracey signed herself up to two or three boot camp sessions a week, run by Tom Cowen, personal trainer at Xercise4Less Hull.
“I contacted Tom and went from there.
“I’m quite a confident person really, but body-wise I wasn’t very confident”
“What made the biggest difference was his motivation; you want to do it for him as well as yourself.”
The rigorous boot camp sessions involve different exercises each week to ensure every session is challenging.
Tracey said: “When I first started I couldn’t do burpees or high knees – I felt my tummy got in the way.
“I struggled to to do press ups or to plank, I was very very unfit.
“But I never give up, I push myself all the time and now I can do all the exercises and a lot more.”
She also followed Tom’s rigorous diet plan to whip herself into shape.
“Not been able to have any fruit apart from blueberries was difficult too, it’s all about changing your mind set.”
