Hi, my name is Tyson Laulu and I am 33 years old. I am originally from Hawaii, but have now been living in Hastings for almost 9 years. One of my passions in life is my family which include my wife Nicola and 6 children. I enjoy surfing, playing all types of sport and of course spending quality time with my family when time permits. I currently work at Flaxmere College as an in school social worker and love my job working with youth in our community.
For most of my life, I would say that physical fitness and taking care of my body were never a priority. Within the past 5 years I had become the biggest and heaviest that I had ever been. My weight sat around 116k and my health continued to take a dive. One of the most frustrating things for me was knowing mentally that all the things I was doing to my body was not good for me, but I continued to find an excuse to continue living an unhealthy lifestyle. My diet consisted of drinking 2.25 Cokes on a daily basis and eating fast foods for lunch and dinner. In March of this year I noticed that my asthma and sleeping patterns were getting worse and so I decided to do something about it, but of course that's always easier said then done. So that's where Aspyre Fitness came into my life.
I remember the first day walking into Aspyre Fitness and meeting Jamie and his staff. Immediately, I felt that they were genuine people and cared about HELPING others. I observed Jamie and a few of his staff as they walked around his gym and noticed that they knew everyone in the gym by name. They even took that time to stop and give gym members a hand by showing them simple techniques and ensuring that they were working out safely and correctly. From my experience at other gyms most trainers will not give you the time of day unless you are paying them for a service, but Jamie and the staff at Aspyre cared more about helping others to reach their goals and that's why I decided Aspyre was the gym for me. Over the past 5 months I have since lost 18k by following Jamie's workout program and by soaking up all of his knowledge. Although loosing weight has been great, I knew that I was making progress because I actually started looking forward to getting into the gym and working out. That mind set has now allowed me to start achieving more goals whilst working along side great people like Jamie and the Aspyre staff.
I would recommend Aspyre Fitness to anyone who has a desire to make changes in their life both physically and mentally. One of the hardest things to do is to walk into a gym and feel like everyone is judging you because of how you look. I feel Aspyre Fitness has built a culture of acceptance and a safe environment where goals can be achieved. I feel better each day about myself and love the little physical changes my body is making. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you Aspyre Fitness for helping me to achieve my goals and hopefully I can stick around a lot longer to enjoy my wife and children.
Spread the love
