Some words from Marleen
I’m a 34 year old mum who ran away from Egypt and the shame instilled in women to find my freedom here at age 19. I know first hand the struggles of emotional eating and have personally lost 42kg whilst helping hundreds of women lose an average of 12kg each.
I’m passionate about empowering mums to prioirtise their health and happiness so they can be good parents and fulfilled individuals. Having kids is not the end of your youth, energy or good looks. It’s only the start.
What Marleen can offer
Just last year I embarked on a journey to change my life through changing my body and confidence. At 105kg, getting rid of the excess weight meant getting rid of the emotional baggage and looking great on the outside, while feeling confident in myself.I started on my own and struggled with eating well and training hard. When I met Marleen I had lost 11kg through excessive over-training, but my lower back pain, knee issues and unexpected changes in life had my self-belief wavering. I knew I would soon burn out and the thought frightened me. Marleen explained the benefits and importance of balancing weight training, rest, and nutrition to keep my metabolism up, strengthen my body and eliminate pain. She’s my trainer, my biggest motivator and a very good friend who always reminds me to stay positive, be kind to myself and believe in the accomplishment of my goals. Through the FittHeroes program I have learned how to change my lifestyle to gradually and permanently get the results I want, instead of going to extremes for short term, mediocre results. Thus far, I have dropped from 93kg with 43% body fat, to 76kg with 34% body fat. I feel amazing. I’m a new person and the journey isn’t even done yet! I’m thrilled about the changes my body continues to see, and the change in thinking that accompanies it all.
