In 2015 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes which required a major lifestyle change consisting of daily insulin injections with each meal and managing my engineering studies, stress, hormones and pretty much everything else that I had previously done – with added effort (and magic).  However, one extremely daunting task for me was exercising because I was terrified. Scared of the unknown, of how my blood sugar levels would be impacted with insulin and different exercises. Zandro at Effective Fitness has played a key role, since 2016, in helping me along the journey to gaining confidence and helping me understand my new body and exercise. His excellent coaching abilities helped me to loose 10kg with another 10kg to go! His never-ending patience and unfailing positivity can all be attributed to my successful weight loss.
