A few weeks back I headed to Kevin Harkin’s Synergy in Derry/Londonderry to shoot with Leah and her friend Shannon both coached by Adrian Boyd.

The response from this shoot has been incredible generating a number of queries not just with myself but with girls signing up for the Synergy’s semi private classes

It just goes to prove great results boost business!!

I would love to know what you think of the images and leave some support for Leah.

This is Leah’s story…

I’ve been training with Adrian the last year and half, coming into summer last year he really got Me into shape, we followed a strict enough diet plan and trained 2/3 times a week, after summer I kind of fell away from training , But around Christmas time we decided to get stuck back in and we had a few chats about doing a photo shoot but it was always kind of joking around I never actually imagined myself having the motivation and drive to stick through with such a strict diet plan and the intensity of each session for the 5 months that we did. Adrian pushed me to do the shoot and I’m glad he did, i wanted to do it for myself because it was something completely out of my comfort zone and something I never did before or even thought that I could do. Before the shoot I was so nervous just thinking that I wouldn’t know how to pose right for the camera and doubting myself that I could have done more but after seeing the photos of myself and how I looked I couldn’t have been happier

With Martin guiding me through each shot by showing me how to pose and which shots would be best for my body type it really helped me and my nerves disappeared after the first few shots which I was so happy about. I didn’t think I would have enjoyed the shoot as much as I did and having Shannon and Adrian there while it was happening made it that bit easier. I was so shocked at the reaction I got from my photos, so many people messaged me and commented on the pictures which made me so overwhelmed that everyone was so nice and supportive of them. My main aim now after the shoot is to maintain my weight and body shape, I don’t want to lose any more weight but keep toning, and I hope by following Adrian’s guidance I can stay in shape for my summer holidays. I will definitely still be training 2/3 times a week and sticking to a diet plan, but it won’t be as strict as it was the last few weeks before the shoot which is fab but overall it was an amazing experience!
