FIDELITY SUCCESS STORIES
  • Personal Training Success story

    I joined Fidelity I was obese. With The help of my motivation and inspirational of my Personal Trainer Mark Gracia I set up a goal to lose weight & become lean. At the start it was very difficult but with the push Mark gave me it helped me achieve my goal.

    With his training and nutritional advice within a year I achieved my target weight and am now on to my next goal of having a 6-pack, something I could only dream about before.

    The program & nutritional plan Mark designed for me was key to my achievement. We workout 3-4 times a week, of which is 3 sessions of resistance training and the 4th is circuit training and cardio training. The nutritional plan was designed to compliment my training and my day to day schedule, which made it easy to follow!

    Initially it was a tough but I got stronger and once I started seeing a difference it motivated me to reach my goal.

  • Personal Training Success story

    I joined Fidelity in December of 2012, weighting around 113 kg with Diabetes and high cloistral and overall poor state of health. I need to make lifestyle changes and I finally had the courage to start my journey, slowly but surely, taking one step at a time to combat my bad habits, diet and incredible laziness.


    At Fidelity Fitness Club I started to love fitness, and the best part was watching my body transform to the vision I once had in my head.

  • Personal Training Success story

    I have struggled with my weight since I was 23 years old. It has always made me unhappy and because of it I’ve joined several fitness clubs in the past in an attempt to get myself under control. Unfortunately, my level of commitment was very low. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I realized that it’s nearly impossible to motivate yourself until you learn how to appreciate the value of your health.

    Perhaps that’s what caused me to pick up a boxing program with my trainer Ralf. I also began to do some cardio and circuit exercises to give my body variety, and over time I’ve started to feel a distinct difference between my lifestyle then and my lifestyle now.

    Now a days, I keep my health and nutrition as one of my top priorities. I’ve changed my whole outlook, which means that I have to think twice now before I eat. My Chronic fatigue is gone. I feel more wholesome now, I don’t feel so tired and down all the time and I think it’s because I sleep better and eat better. The energy I get from working out has changed me for the better, and I think that it feels refreshing to finally be in control of my body

  • Personal Training Success story

    From 76 kg on 2nd October, 2013 to 64 kg as on 25th April 2014, has been quite a transformational journey of the mind and body alike, a much needed one and I owe it all to my gym, Fidelity Fitness Club, and my Personal Trainer, Mark Garcia!!!

    Looking back, I'd say, a lot of decisions taken by me went perfect; to begin with is my choice of gym and signing up for Personal Training. I consider my expenditure on fitness as an investment for a better, fitter and a more confident "me", for which I was willing to forgo a few luxury and lifestyle expenses. Hence, there was no compromising when it came to choosing the right gym and absolutely no second thoughts on signing up for Personal Training.

    Fidelity Fitness Club, JLT

    Amongst all the gyms/ health/ fitness centers in and around JLT, what I found more inviting and appealing about Fidelity FC is it's glamorous location, in a prestigious tower, the lake side view from the cardio section, the layout with ample daylight coming in through the tall French windows and a high ceiling giving a sense of space, the seriousness in the atmosphere towards fitness and attempts thereof, the upkeep of the premises and attention to details that are commensurate to its Diamond edition status. From Day one, I have found the club inviting rather than a drag, and all the training, as well as non- training staff highly professional and very supportive and encouraging of one's effort on the floor.

    Personal Training

    I signed up for Personal Training in a week time after joining the gym to ensure faster results in a more structured, calibrated and scientific manner and to optimize the resources available on the gym floor. While all the Trainers are equally competent, I opted for Mark Garcia, which was an absolute no brainer, on account of his structured, unrelenting and disciplined approach on the floor with his clients, which immediately clicked with me and my personality type. Mark is not only an experienced Trainer but also a very enthusiastic one, which is a wonderful combination for optimum results.

    The workout strategy

    More than loosing inches I was keen on building my Strength and Stamina (which I have termed as " the 2S strategy") knowing very well the former will follow suit. Mark's program of 3 days a week of 1 hour Training alternating with my 3 days a week of cardio routine helped me immensely to build my strength and stamina. Mark's swiftness on the floor with a mix of weight, functional and core training, kept slicing my extra pounds proportionately. From a basic fitness routine, he seamlessly advanced me to more rigorous circuit training, in a mere 30 sessions of focused personal training.

    Among my early first achievements was -

    • When I started getting into my pre-pregnancy clothes
    • When I saw the expressions of awe on my friends faces and the compliments that followed
    • When I completed Fidelity Fitness Clubs Fun Run Challenge successfully, and thereafter a 5km run in Sharjah, with Winter 2014 registrations already in the pipeline

    To sum it all, It's an amazing feeling that cardio routines don't seem boring anymore and the gym feels like second home that I am now incomplete without for the rest of my life.

  • Personal Training Success story

    A desire to become "a Fit Mom and not just a Slim mom" was my driving force to join Fidelity Fitness Club two years back.

    Weighing 64 kgs when I first joined the club in October 2015 to 48 kgs in October 2016, it has been an amazingly beautiful journey and I wish this journey goes on & on.

    When I first visited Fidelity, I was overwhelmed by the real life stories of people who had transformed their bodies and eventually their lives, and this inspired me thoroughly to have a similar story to share with everyone.

    Shedding weight after my second delivery was even more difficult than the first and after dropping a few kilos, the scale was stuck! The decision to join Fidelity was the right click at that moment and a further encouragement by my Husband to go for Personal Training was enough to set the path right.

    At the beginning, it was super tough and I had to really push my limits just to keep it going. There were times when I thought I might pass out or fall sick, but as its said good things don't come easy and don't come soon. I slowly started to enjoy the classes and as my fitness level was increasing, so was my motivation level and guess what.. "I have my story today"!

    Personal Training

    After my first meeting with Mark Garcia, I knew I was in Good Hands. We trained for about a year and a half and I believe he is one of the most experienced and committed trainer around.

    Mark's skills as a Personal Trainer have helped me make significant improvements to my Lifestyle including weight loss, physical ability, energy, stamina & self- confidence.

    With his clear nutritional advice and tough but enjoyable personal training sessions I started losing weight, feeling stronger and faster every single week. He focused on helping and motivating me achieve my goals & made every session challenging (& somehow fun).

    Ditching all excuses that I used to make earlier, I squeezed in 3 cardio and 2 strength- training sessions a week with Mark. And in no time, he transformed my attitude from "can't do" to "will do" and now exercising has become an integral part of my life.

    My fitness has increased noticeably & I've seen improvements in my ability to complete more core exercises, lift progressively heavier weights & push myself harder through each session. Mark applies tailored program for each client according to individual needs and limitations, which makes him unique and extremely reliable. He also ensures that the techniques were always correct to avoid any injuries. I truly felt each session left me with a "Job Well Done" feeling

    Achievements

    In my closet, I have kept the L dresses (the largest I've ever worn) to remind me how far I've come. Appreciation from my friends and family after seeing a "toned" me have been countless and priceless. With a stronger body and mind, I have become a happier mom too!

    I realised my weight had gotten totally put of hand and I knew I had to drastically change my life style before I was diagnosed with a serious illness such as diabetes. I made the first step and signed up to Fidelity Fitness Club. But I also took it one step further and got myself a Personal Trainer who could push me to my limits. Bryan was amazing. He worked with me and was there every step of the way even when I tell like giving up he never stopped pushing me to achieve my best.

    I know I still have a long way to go to reach my goal weight but I am in great hands with Fidelity Fitness. “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great”

  • Group Exercise Success Story

    I started my journey at Fidelity in September 2014 when i was 95kg. When I joined my plans was just to loose some kgs and mantain a healthy life style. I was coming to the gym 3 times a week and training on my own but didnt see too much results.

    Then I was advised by my friend to join the bootcamp class and at that time my journey began. I was attending bootcamps twice a week and I started seeing results after the 1st month. It was not only weight loss but also body shape. I went down in 6 month from 95 kg to 75kg and my size from xl to small.

  • Personal Training Success story

    My name is Gill. I am 56 years old and have suffered with a severe spinal injury for over 30 years.

    I used to be very active, participating in sailing, karate, swimming, going to the gym, running and horse riding. All this stopped suddenly after a horse riding incident.

    16 months ago my husband said that he was going to Fidelity Fitness Club, at this time my back had been stable for a long enough period of time, that I felt confident to start going to the gym once again, but only if I had a Personal Trainer who could help me.

    This turned out to be the first decision I could have made and it has been a life changing experience, not only for me but also for my family. I have become stronger, healthier and my back is the strongest it has been for many years. As a result I am now able to participate in a normal family once again.

    Last year I had a knee surgery, Once again Mark adapted my workouts to gently strengthen my knee and it is now stronger than it has ever been. Complement each other, knowing what my limitations are and how to increase them safely.

    I really enjoy training at Fidelity Fitness Club, the atmosphere created is inspiring , the equipment and facilities are fantastic and well maintained, the staff are both helpful and friendly and because the gym is so light and airy it’s a pleasure to train there.

    My Family and friends have been amazed at my transformation from being frail, unable to get through a day without back pain and needing to lie down and rest, to being up and about all day, full of energy, being able to join family activities and as an added bonus I have lost weight and now have a much more toned figure, which feels fantastic!

    I cannot imagine my life now without training at a gym.

  • Personal Training Success story

    My Name is Maria Nevirkovetz. I am 27 year old and I’ve never been over weight. I personally feel fit yet I wanted to be in a better shape.

    I used to work out on my own to lose weight. I did this mostly by going to the gym. Coincidently, while I was doing a routine – Ralf, a personal trainer happened to spot me and was so kind to correct my posture and the right way doing such routine. So from that time on I decided to have him as my Personal Trainer. With Him, we’ve laid out my specific goals and we started doing intensive workouts. He has helped me tremendously. In the last two months I started to lose weight, my body looks sporty and I feel great of myself.

    Seeing the result of me starting lose weight is my motivation to push through and to go to gym almost every day. I started to be aware and watch over the food I eat as well. It’s a matter of pushing through now and them work with my Personal Trainer and in no time I will be achieving my Fitness Goals.

  • Personal Training Success story

    When I first joined Fidelity I didn't have any intention of taking PT, I didn't really want to go to the gym but knew it was something I had to do. After my first 2 complimentary lessons with Toby, I was surprised that I actually enjoyed it. Having someone there to motivate me through an entire session really helped to change my negative mindset of going to the gym into a positive. I then signed up for personal training with Toby for the next 3 months and I never looked back.

    Training with Toby encouraged me to work hard to become a fitter and healthier me. He gave me regular advice about what to eat, although generally I maintained my normal diet but healthier versions of it. Since joining Fidelity to the end of my 3 months with Toby, I lost 7kg and had to buy an entire new wardrobe.
    I am confident with how I look now but I’m determined to keep going and get even fitter. If anyone is considering getting a PT, I would recommend it 100%. It motivates you to keep going, even if you don't feel like going to the gym, knowing someone is there counting on you to show up motivates you. Toby is a great personal trainer and has become a great friend, if you put the effort in you will see the results! I have since continued PT sessions with Toby in order to maintain the results I have achieved.
