Carin Astrup Testimonials

A year ago I decided that I had spent too many years being unhappy with my weight and it was time to do something about it. The support and coaching I received from Carin during the six months that it took me to lose 30 pounds (14 kilos) and then to maintain this weight loss and work on toning my now thinner body in the six months since has been hugely important and valuable to me. The energy and inspiration that Carin brought to this journey got me through some of the more challenging times, especially when I was stuck at a number on the scale for a few weeks. It felt like a team effort, for the two of us; I was never alone because she stood by me the whole time, and we took such joy, together, in this accomplishment. She was much more than a trainer; she was a coach on so many levels and was such a good listener and sounding board. And the impact of our personal training sessions on a thinner body has been so exciting. With Carin by my side, I have changed my lifestyle completely, and I am so much happier now
– Christy Lorgen

Before I heard of Carin’s services I had been a support member at several different gyms and recreational centers. I tried different PTs and different methods of training. I never seemed to be motivated by the PTs I had and it was a struggle for me to get to the gym. Thinking about exercise made me feel sick and almost always after training i got the migraine. I hated exercise and I hated that I was stuck in my unhealthy body and chaotic life. When I first started with Carin Astrup in January I was 8-10kg overweight. I was sad, tired and had little energy. I decided to exercise her stuff 3 times a week. My life changed with Carin. My goal was to lose 5-6 KG till Easter and the pounds came off. Here I have a easy to follow exercise and a food plan. By summer I had lost the 8kg that were my goal and it wasn’t painful. At least i don’t remember it as painful… For the first time I felt uplifted and happy after exercising and kept the kg off!
