What people have been saying
“ 84kg vs 94kg. A year ago the thought of the gym terrified me. On day 1, I walked in and 5 mins later walked out again. I got over those demons and built up confidence following a year-long structured plan in 12-week chunks. This is where I’ve got to so far. I can’t recommend @alexcrockford’s #Crockfit #GymFit plan enough. Seriously the best money I spent last year. Thanks to those of you who’ve encouraged me and endured my daily posts. Special shoutouts to @alexcrockfordand @my.maya.life for unceasing support. 🦄💪💃🏻”
“So here they are... #1yeartransformation photos!
I’m a believer that pictures speak more than words and numbers but they are weight 107.8kg to 77.8kg and roughly 35-40% BF to around 15% BF! It’s been a long journey and by no means perfect (what is) but I am proud of what I have achieved! I am an average person with an average life...I have all the usual commitments and things that happen in life that most have and I am a shift worker in the emergency services! If I can do it anyone can...if I could put what I have achieved into 3 words they would be 1.Commitment 2.Consistency 3.Organisation! Goals going for the next year? Body fat around 10%, lean mass up by 5kg at least and some compound lift PRs! Thanks to @alexcrockford for the guides, @bulkpowders_uk for the supps, @snapfitness247wallington for the gym! And above all else @jimjams81 and my family and friends for the support
The start picture is from Sept 16...one of my many failed attempts to lose weight, that’s were I was...probably worse if I’m honest post Christmas so I have used that as my starting reference (didn’t take one in Feb as I had the opinion I’d probably fail so what’s the point)
I started with diet alone on 21st Feb 17 at 107kg as I didn’t feel comfortable with going to the gym, I lost 10kg by 17th April 17 (pic in blue shorts) and started in the gym...I have completed #Gymfit1 and am currently on week 10 of #Gymfit2.”
“Thank you so much!!! I gained self confidence and felt stronger not only physically but holistically. I finished #Homefit1 today and I want to share with you and to our fellow #crockfitters the results that I gained. I’m too happy about it hehe. So proud! And it all because of you coach. 😌
#Homefit2 is ready to rock by the next day (coz its off tomorrow hehe) Thank you! Thank you!
#Homefit1 gave me so much good impact to my health, mentality and personality. I started recommending it to my family and friends after they’ve seen great changes in my body.
Thank you so much Coach Alex! 🙌🏻”
“ I'm so proud of the healthy changes I've made, and very happy with the effects they had on my overall health. Not only am I in the best physical shape of my life, but my mood is more stable, I'm generally happier, and I feel amazing! It's not always easy to stay motivated, but the changes I'm seeing on my body push me to keep going and try to be my best self.
I'll keep doing cycle 3 all through the holidays just so I don't fall off the wagon (we all know how hectic it can get!), but after that, it's on to the next challenge! 💪😄
I want to thank you for being there when I needed a little extra push, and for your encouraging words. It means a lot that I was able to check in with you from time to time during the whole process. “
Stella wins last month’s award well done! For her prize she asked for #CrockFitTshirtsso we have sent them over to Canada for her now!
“ I have now finished HomeFit 1 cycle 2 for the second time and feeling way more confident than I did the first time I tried the cycle. Learning to live in the moment and just focus on one exercise at a time. Last time I emailed you I was 161lbs. I am now 155lbs. I have gone from size 12 clothes (Canadian) to size 10 clothes (that is size 12 in the UK.) I fit into my Christmas dress that I bought 5 years ago for $10 that I was always going to fit into but never did. “
“It is not easy for me to gain muscle or weight, but you have made it far easier than I can imagine! Thank you so much!
I can’t wait to continue on this path and reach new heights of success!
It’s hard but completely worth it! Thank you! I am very proud of where I am vs where I was 2 years ago. Your program has pushed me to new limits and is fun and easy to get back into. I was pretty depressed about falling off the wagon when I started my new job as I lost all my hard work, but I’m back at it with more drive and vigour than before. I have gymfit 1 & 2 and will definitely be getting the 3rd in the future.”
“It was a great program, definitely kicked my butt and I ended up losing 13 kilos!”
“ Made it to week 12 and I enjoyed every little bit of it!
Can't wait to start Gymfit 2, but i'll be travelling for a bit in the next 2 months or so.
So, I might go ahead a give Homefit a try! “
“ Photo on the left was just as I was starting the GymFit 1 and the photo on the right was taken a week ago! Definitely can see the difference and progress I’ve made, I’m absolutely stoked! I managed to put on 6 kilos in the process (was originally 64kgs now I’m up to 70! Hella yeah!) still a lot of progress to go but I just wanted to chime in and thank you so much for your program!”
“I’m actually amazed with the progress i’ve made looking at my before-after pictures. Being focused on your goals is good but don’t stress out about whether or not you can achieve your goal. I had completely zero expectation on how I’d look like when I restarted the gym plan in July. I was like “just do it!” and now I did it! I still needa try harder for a better me but well, at least i can proudly say I stopped dreaming abt how I’d be and actually became the person I once imagined to be!”
OCTOBER #CROCKFITSTAR!⭐️ Nicola ( @giampolino76 ) has won last month’s #CrockFitStar award and has got his next plan FREE! “My deepest gratitude goes to Alex for the results I managed to obtain with the homefit 1 programme. His professional advice and his inspirational words and videos got me through this challenging but effective training and diet plan. Thanks Alex!😃" Nicola will start his #HomeFit2 plan to bring more and more results!
The #CrockFitStar is a rolling monthly competition so #CrockFitters make sure you keep sending in your updates when you finish your plan! 😄👊
“Done with the 12 week home plan & look at the difference!! Super happy and excited to try out something new now!!”
"Here are my final results after 12 weeks of #HomeFit! I have to say that I can't believe how much I've changed physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I now enjoy working out and it's something that is constantly on my mind. I'm completely focused on my goals of losing body fat and gaining muscle for the body I desire to look great. I admit I thought I'd be a little further along, but I'm enjoying the journey. Thanks for coaching me through #HomeFitand showing me that all it takes to get the results your looking for is hard work, dedication, and finding a love of pushing yourself passed what your "limits" are. I'm going to look into your other plans and see where they take me from here. Again, thank you so much"
"Being a keen cyclist, my accident and broken collar plus subsequent pins inevitably led to a decrease in activity for a while and drop in confidence. I found myself adding 15kg to my weight and creeping ominously closer to 100kg. I knew I had to make a change for the sake of my health and happiness.
I spoke with @pedros1976 from the @your_willow about this and he mentioned the plan by @alexcrockford that was starting in January and it seemed like the perfect fit, something I could fit in with a busy work and family schedule, one that provided guidance and a clear structured exercise plan plus nutritional help and support, I signed up straight away.
The plan was clear and well laid out, making it easier to stick to it, recipes were simple and easy and focussed on eating the right things not just cutting calories. The exercises in my then state were tough, intense but also short and allowed me to easily see my progression and fitness improvements. The group environment and social media aspects allowed me to connect with a much larger group of #crockfitters and draw inspiration and encouragement. I have sought additional information from other sources though but it came from a newfound interest in all things healthy which the Crockfit plan, Alex and the Willow had sparked in me.
You have to want to make that change, it doesn’t just appear, if you really want to make the changes, Alex can help you get there. I’m now fitter and healthier than I have ever been and looking at every opportunity to improve myself. It given me a renewed confidence and optimism in my health. I have lost 22kg and 15% body fat which is amazing, people are noticing and it has inspired my family and friends which is a great side benefit that this can be infectious to those around you.
Although I find sharing how i looked embarrassing, the reason I’m sharing in the hope that even if it inspires one person to make a change in the lifestyles, it can spread and inspire even more people."
"#GymFit 1,2,3 helped me to reach my goals!! You gave me the tools I needed to succeed and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you for hearing me, thank you for caring about me and thank you for listening and motivating me when anyone who thought I couldn't succeed. You are great!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better coach. I have lost 30 lbs and feel great! During this time I have made many lifestyle changes for myself and as a whole we have all benefited from your coaching. My hope is to continue with my new ways and still be able to reach my goal.
"#GymFit complete! I had so many 'Can I do this!?' moments, but I did it. I took longer than 3 months but see my previous post. I have completed the program and have already purchased GymFit2. What do you think? The belly was kinda sexy, no? Be good, friends. Cheers to good health. Thanks coach crock @alexcrockford for all the support. X #CrockFit"
"When I look back to my picture from January, I can say I am proud of where I stand in life. There is not only a physical change, this process challenges me physically but also gives me energy to focus on my mental health, to not only respect my body but also my mental stability."
"Week 12 complete! Thank you for creating a program which is user friendly. Nice to change things up with the different cycles. Definitely kept me interested and focused on what I had to achieve. Also a big boost is having you comment and like our updates throughout our journey. Shows us your about helping others change their lives and not just a sales person's which disappears once they have off loaded their program! So thanks and keep up the good work. The process was great along with other crockfitters who we have all seen, encouraged and supported through their own journey.
"The last 4 weeks definitely kicked my butt and while I thought that after the 6 day split nothing could shock my system, the super sets in cycle 5 have taken intensity to a whole new level!! The past three months have really been an eye opener in many ways. I have performed countless exercises that I wouldn't even consider trying a couple of months ago!! Working with the program and having specific goals and routines has been an immense improvement to what I was doing before. I have learned so much by following this plan and I have definitely taken a couple of steps outside my comfort zone and I still continue doing so! Now I can honestly say that I am sure that there is no limit to what I can achieve regarding my physique in the coming months and years. The guidance you have provided through your programme as well as your support have been incredible!! I am so glad to have challenged myself by getting your plan and it's great to see other #crockfitters working hard and supporting each other!
Don't even want to make this too long since I feel that once again this is just the beginning of a long and exciting journey and I just wanted to thank you for your knowledge and guidance I have really had a blast completing #gymfit1!! #Gymfit2 will start straight after my summer travels!! I'll be going through my favourite and most challenging parts of the plan in the meantime focusing on compound movements :) :) "
"Done with gymfit3! This plan is incredible, easy to follow and i see great results! I have so many great things to say about crockfit!! It literally changed my perspectives in life. Thanks Alex for inspiring me to keep going! "
"I feel a lot stronger, and have received numerous compliments from family and friends. I have lost some weight, and developing good shape in my chest, arms, and legs! Butt is coming along hehe and can see the abs wanting to peek through. That stubborn belly/back fat and love handles are killin' me but I'm determined. Diet has drastically improved and cheat once in a while, but like you say it's all about creating a balanced lifestyle. I used to not care about going to the gym but after this program, I look forward to fitness being a part of my daily routine and lifestyle! Even worked out on vacation in Jamaica!"
"Thanks once again for designing such a challenging programme and I've really enjoyed it. It's really pushed me and I can definitely see and feel the results. Since finishing I've just been repeating cycle 3 and following a couple of your YouTube videos."
"I have finished the homefit 1 and I am very pleased with the result. I feel great, strong and have a lot of energy. The fact that my body is changing gives me more confidence and is a extra motivation to keep on going."
"Yesterday was my last day in GymFit 1 plan. These last 3 months have been incredible.
I started this plan with body weight of 64kg and 4% body fat. As of today I'm 67.2kg and (somehow) still 4% body fat :D
Here is the thing. Ignoring numbers, gains and all those details, I enjoyed every cycle of this program to the last drop of sweat (and tears). And that was what mattered to me. There were lots of ups and downs. Days where I couldn't reach my calorie target. Days where I got cold and couldn't train. But there were also days where energy was sky high and gains were made. With every cycle, there was a new challenge and every new challenge was a shock to my body and it just felt so damn good! Honestly, cycles changing kept this program fun, interesting, and challenging. It also made me realize that I got so much potential and that the human body can achieve crazy things. Because of this program I unlocked new skills that I always wanted to have. I can do pistol squats (still can't believe that I can), do unassisted pull ups, and do some balance fun stuff with yoga poses. My strength has certainly reached levels so shocking to me :D
The most I'm happy about are my legs. They always looked so skinny and I never wear shorts because I'm embarrassed. But not anymore! They are still relatively skinny but they got a lot bigger and i can just feel how heavy they feel :D
Also I would like to add that pretty much my entire wardrobe doesn't fit me anymore haha.
What's next? Gonna take about a week break (still gonna hit the gym and workout, just keep my body moving but nothing too serious). And of course start GymFit 2 plan and throw in the Abs plan as well cuz we all want abs :P
Thanks for creating such an amazing plan!"
"I must say this is the best shape I've ever been in in those almost 6years of regular working out. That says a lot, considering this time it had nothing to do with extreme diets or hours of cardio (I only did about 20mins of cardio after the workouts). What's more - both you and the community kept me motivated and going, not to mention the workout programme was VERY fun to follow, yea I couldn't keep track of how many reps I was supposed to do, but checking it every now and then was part of the fun :) I am going to start gymfit2 this week, I just need a small break for my new tattoo to heal up and I'll be right on it."
"Nothing describes how impressed and delighted I am with results achieved from your gymfit 12 week programme. I've done my best and admittedly I had off days when I didn't have the energy but I was resilient and persevered. At the start I was getting disillusioned thinking "here I go again, another waste of money on something that's not working" but when results were rapidly developing I knew I was onto something different and a gym plan that was actually working. You are an absolute inspiration and the motivation from your online videos, status updates and emails is commendable. No other Personal Trainer is as dedicated, professional and hardworking as you. You are truly unique in your field. I would highly recommend anyone to try your gym plans as I for one will continue to follow you and use your other plans and achieve the physique I've always desired. Thank you so much and I look forward to continuing my transformation journey with you because this is not the end.....it's just the beginning"
"2nd April - My Birthday, I am 41 years old TODAY and I've managed to stick to a training plan that took me just over 12 weeks to complete. I am a mum/wife, career woman and trying to complete my diploma, LIFE is BUSY but I managed to go to the gym more than 48 times in the last 12 weeks, for me that's the biggest transformation right there. #SheFit#CrockFit plan gave me that discipline to stick to a plan and I love having a routine and walking in to the gym knowing exactly what workout I need to do. I must add one thing, I have ONLY strictly followed #CrockFit exercise plan and not the diet, The only meal I had healthy throughout the 12 weeks was breakfast, my lunch and dinners could be more healthy, but this was the choice I made when I started this plan, I would do what was sustainable with my life style. Overall I've eaten healthy but really paid zero attention to macros or weighing my food and eating more carbs than I probably should. 🙄🙄🙄 but I think I did ok in making visible changes around the tummy area 😎😎😎😎 the third photo (back shot) was from two weeks ago. The best thing about this is I am starting #Shefit2 from 4th April 🤗🤗 bring on another 12 weeks. Thank you Alex for making this awesome training plan."
"Completed week 12 yay!! I have to say being a person that never worked out a day in my life. Doing this program was amazing. I will admit it was tough. I had my moments of weakeness with the diet and maybe not completing an entire workout cause I just didn't have it in me. The more I pushed for it the easier it got. I can just imagine the results if I would have pushed that much harder. I have energy that I never did or needed an energy drink to achieve. It was definitely a life changer from the amazing food recipes to the awesome workouts. And don't forget the great tips on Alex's YouTube channel. HOMEFIT is perfect for those with no time for gym. You can do it anywhere anytime. Can't thank you enough Alex for creating this program. You are an inspiration and awesome for keeping this going."
"Well so far this has been a journey!! I can't say I was amazing everyday with food, I did drop a few times when I had to bake cakes for people's birthdays but, I did manage to snap myself out if it and get into gear with your help!! Your Snapchat stories help me out a lot and get me through the days I need that extra kick of motivation - thank you!! As I'm writing out this email to you, I'm actually on my way to the airport - Vietnam and Cambodia here I come!! Got a bit of the travel bug haha :) I'm definitely more confident in a bikini now due to the HomeFit and I will try my absolute best not to indulge in "all" the rubbish while travelling for 3 months!! I'm also going to try my hardest to exercise 5 days a week, whether that's following your programme or doing my own bits - but I know that when I return .... it's game on!! Well, I've completed HomeFit Cycle 1 & 2 - and these are my results "attached". Cycle 3 might be completed while I'm on my travels (if my mate doesn't mind haha) but if not I will definitely do it when I return, and then it's onto the next chapter - HomeFit2. Thanks again for your inspiration, motivational talks and for just being there to help me along with this journey. Many thanks again!"
"Would definitely recommend to all of you that go for CrockFit Programmes. It really has helped me a lot. I have been going gym for the last three years but could not see any change. Since I have signed up with this programme, I have lost weight and gained muscle. Looking forward to do Gymfit 2"
"I have finished Gymfit 2! I just want to say that I have looked up to you on google and you became my favourite fitness model and then I started following you on social media. Then I trained with your plan and I'm very happy with my results for sure. I know it's still a long long way to go to achieve my goal, but I'm happy and proud of what I've achieved so far. Everyone in the gym has told me that I have changed and that I'm looking good. Thank you Alex everything you do!"
"I have finished #Crockfit 1! I'm happy with my results for sure. I had a few loose days where the odd meal or a few vodka sodas were present but I never missed a gym session which kept me spurred on! Usually In the past I'd have a couple of days off after a night out, Eat sh*t and not go to the gym so it's be harder to get back into it, where as irrespective of the nights out I still hit the gym hard which kept be encouraged!! Again thanks for everything and I will definitely be quizzing you as I go through Crockfit 2 and will keep you posted with pictures as that goes along!!"
"Alex! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I've attempted many gym programs but all pale in comparison to your #gymfit plans. I have gained 8 pounds these two months and a tremendous amount of strength! I feel so much healthier as well. This is just the beginning for me and can't wait for a new life surrounded by fitness! I'm looking forward to my last month of this plan and starting gymfit 2 in the future! :D"
"Thank you for everything! I'm feeling great! Thank you for your program entirely! It has helped me out tremendously!"
"I wanted to say thank you again for your CrockFit program! I know that it doesn't look like a huge difference in my pictures, but honestly there is. I've worked hard these past 12 weeks and I'm already loving GymFit2 as well. I've gained a few inches on my chest and I've had a few people comment on my legs and my bum! Thank you so much for creating a truly fantastic program."
"What can I say. I'm delighted with the progress I've made over the last 12 weeks. I have probably seen more change over the span of the plan than I've seen in 12 months of working without goals or structure. The focus on nutrition has been such a massive learning experience. One I wish I had learned a long time ago! I feel fitter, more energetic and stronger than I have my whole life. At 43 years old that's a big deal! Your support, words of encouragement and inspiration has really helped me push through the difficult times, the 7am freezing morning getups to fit the workouts in and the determination needed to stay focused over the festive period. Your motto 'burn it to earn it' has really stuck. So what's next? Well naturally it's Gymfit2 from here. Very keen to start the next chapter and seeing what progress I can make towards becoming the best version of me I can, and want, to be." -----
"I tried #Crockfit #gymfit plan before in April last year and failed due to lack of consistency. Then I started again in October with higher determination, greater goals and clearer plans! I was 93kg on 3/10/2016 and now I'm 67kg on 17/1/2017. I know it's still a long long way to go to achieve my goal, but I'm happy with and proud of what I've achieved so far. One of my so many fav quotes: "No gym means nothing changed, slow process means something different from yesterday!". Huge shout out to Alex! ;)"
The journey of 24 weeks has taken me through a wealth of emotions, and because of my decision to change my life I am grateful to say that Crockfit has assisted me in doing so. Alex has said many times that it is our responsibility to commit and stay consistent with the programs to get results, and I listened to every word he said. I saw at the forth week change could happen if you take responsibility for your life. I knew the first day when I found Alex that we spoke the same language, and he was the perfect coach for me. His commitment and passion spoke to me, because he knew his “WHY”. It wasn’t about the money, as you can tell by how much he charges for the plans, and how accessible he is no matter how much he grows. I started at 83.4 kgs and now weighing in at 74.3 kgs, with 4.7% in body fat. No one is more surprised by my results then me.
I will continue with GymFit 3 when it comes out, and thank you Alex for everything you do
"My friends are getting into fitness, eating healthy meals and exercising now because they’ve witnessed my transformation.
Following your #gymfit and ur daily tips and messages on social medias helped me a lot.. Thanks for that!!"
"I am feeling great. This is the best I have felt in a long time. I have had people come up to me saying that I have changed and look completely different. Thank you for the motivation and doing what you do! Without you, I do not believe I would be where I am today."
"That's another 12 weeks done with #CrockFit and I can't thank Alex enough for changing the way I view myself, the gym, and nutrition. When I first started GymFit on May 2nd my aim was to try and get a beach body at the age of 40. I'm happy that I have succeeded in that goal. Moving on to GymFit2 in August and I was clear that I wanted to see some abs and add some mass to my main muscle groups. Again, I'm delighted that I have achieved that too. I'm lifting heavier, I'm seeing change and I'm continually amazed with how I can change myself with Alex's help.
But, working on a transformation isn't truly about 12 or 24 weeks. It's about a lifestyle change and about transforming yourself permanently. That's why I'm starting over again immediately to go even further, and push and test myself even more. My aim over the next 12 weeks is to add much more size and get chiselled into the core muscles. Here's to the next part of my journey."
"Past few years I've been working on improving myself and it made me feel good, but I felt that I needed even more motivation, so I came across#crockfit and thought about considering it to get more structure and ideas to help me improve in both my physique and the nutrition help with recipes as my food intake was quite generic.
I enjoyed the 12 weeks immensely and some of the exercises I have never done before and some that I even consider my favourites now. Keeping to the tempo set was probably the most challenging for me but I continued to push through it. My body has changed a lot in the past few years and the help this 12 week plan had has helped me even more and know what to focus on for the future."
Today marked the end of 12 weeks of#shefit and I just have to say thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am the busy single mother of one who works full-time. Shefit has not only helped me fit into some seriously awesome new clothes but it's given me back something for myself - it's given me a reason to focus on myself for one hour of everyday. Looking at my progress just makes me excited for another 12 weeks!
Thanks again Alex."
"Well 12 weeks came and went really quickly, but I'm very happy with the the journey and the results. So much so, I'm starting the next cycle now, so I'll give you another update in 3 months. I found the program to have a good amount of variety, and the HIIT sessions after the workout were one of my favourite things. I knew I'd worked every-time. I've purchased the six pack abs and HomeFit2 programs to give even more variety in my training too! Thanks again for the inspiration and the programming"
"It gives me much pleasure to say that I have completed the 12 week GymFit program. Attached are the final pictures.
I just want to say that I have looked up to you since I first followed you on social media and you were one of the first people to inspire me to take control of my life and be able to believe that I could accomplish the goals I set for myself. Writing this is incredible emotional for me because I grew up with very poor body-image and never really felt attractive at all. Now, during this transition, I look in the mirror and I don't recognize the person staring back at myself. This wasn't just a physical journey for me, but a mental one as well. Changing my eating habits, my lifestyle and my mindset has given me a newfound confidence that I needed in order to become the person I want to be. You've been such a great role-model and I can only hope that one day I can become one as well. This isn't over yet, but I just taken the first steps into what will be an incredible journey and I can't wait till I can start GymFit2 in the future."
"Cycle 3 was mad... is mad... mad crazy. But it helped my performance in crossfit a lot! And my stamina in general, I'm able to do whole routines in less (way less) time. I should confess that this month wasn't easy! I stepped off the rails on some occasions by eating stuff I shouldn't have, or skipping a day or two of workouts, that's life, the point is to get back on track. Lots of friends and strangers have been asking me how did I do it... and besides referring to your amazing program I just say: Doing it... Simply doing it, you will get results if you do it. It is that simple."
Mark's initial goal was to lose body fat, and then when he finished#HomeFit1 he was keen to start gaining lean muscle and change his shape with the #HomeFit2 plan. Well... Looks like his goal was achieved and I am so proud that he committed and put the effort in! I'm actually a bit speechless about how much his body has changed shape!! Thank you so much mark and well done!
"I have come to the end of my 12 week programme of GymFit and ready to begin GymFit 2. Where do I begin It has been quit a journey. Not wanting to sound cliché or overly sentimental, this experience has left me looking and feeling better than I have in my entire life. I first want you to know Alex, that I have had many trainers in the past but never experience this type of results and in just twelve weeks. The support that I have gotten from you and@dereklambie and the#Crockfitcommunity has been phenomenal. I’m over 40yo and my sense of personal pride and self-confidence has gone through the roof. It is never too late to change your life no matter what age you are, or physical condition, we all must start somewhere. I looked long for a trainer, but when I found Alex he spoke my language, supportive when necessary, and kick my ass when the time called for it . But he was always there for me with the many questions I always had, and sometimes just to talk. My journey was hard at times but the pain of not staying committed and consistent was much greater than any pain from the soreness or frustration of doing the workouts. I got up and walked my 10,000 steps, when to the gym, yoga, and worked many passionate hours at my job. This is a habit that I have created for the rest of my life, eating healthy, training, and supporting other crockfitters on the same journey. Beginning weight 80.7kg = 178lbs ending 76.6kg = 169lbs"
"24 weeks on the@alexcrockford #crockfit plans has taught me a great deal. In the fitness world I feel like Alex has been more like a father than a PT! .
I have learnt so much about how my body works and in particular how the strength of my mind is what gets results.
I have learnt that if you don't fuel you mind, body and life with goodness then you may as well cancel the gym membership.
I literally feel no barriers in my life anymore whether it be physically, personally, in work and just happiness in general."
"In my last update, I told you about how excited I was to see such great progress in my physique. This update, while I do think I've made some additional progress with my physique (a little more definition in my abs, bigger shoulders, wider back/lats, bigger chest), I think this update is about strength.
I know I'm getting stronger. However, I think my biggest discovery was with pull ups. Starting GymFit I was able to do them but I did use a little momentum to get through a set of 10. Now, I can easily get through at least two sets, no momentum. Seems simple, but it really stood out to me when I considered how I've gotten stronger over the course of the 12 weeks. Now that I'm finished, I'm sure going to miss the program. Kind of odd to think about. Either way, I purchased GymFit2 so I'll definitely be starting that up. In the meantime, I think I may recycle some of my favorite sessions between now and then or do a few more sessions of cycle 5 (a good one). As always, I can't say thank you enough for creating such a great program. I can't resist a good challenge. This challenged me physically, mentally, sometimes emotionally if I got frustrated, and I'm stronger, more fit, and overall so much healthier because of it."
"These pictures are 16 weeks (just over 100 days) apart. Having completed Alex Crockford's 12 week programme a few weeks back I repeated month 3's schedule for a couple of weeks and then took the knowledge I'd learnt to make my own workouts as well as using other HIIT YouTube videos. It's been super fun with lots of ups and downs being on tour. Worked out in my bedroom, hotel rooms, digs, theatres, between shows, before shows, in dressing rooms etc. There's been a lot of times when I REALLY didn't want to do a workout but once I was 5 minutes in, I was all good. I struggled with balancing carb intake with two shows as well as the workouts and travelling a lot, was feeling very weak but Alex was on hand with some killer advice for this and helped so much. I've wanted to be in and work towards this body shape for a long time, before this I was doing pointless LONG workouts and still eating badly when I thought I was eating well. The programme has been insane and opened my eyes so much to what's good and what's not - I've just purchased#HOMEFIT2 and I can't wait to keep growing my body, fuelling it correctly and feeling awesome! I've learnt to make it my life style and I've still been very kind to myself and had a lot of treats (Shh!) (Look how tired I look in the first picture too, it's changed more than just my body shape!) Thanks #CrockFit :)"
"Thank you very much. 3 months ago, I did not anticipate waking up one hour earlier to do exercise but I'm very happy I did. As soon as I started seeing results, I knew this was the programme for me. I'm now eating healthier and aware of what my body needs to function more efficiently. I have not had any cheat days but look forward to the occasional treats now I've completed the plan. I started the programme at 79KG and finished 12 weeks later at 68KG."
"I'm very happy to show you my 12th week transformation, I'm so happy with the results, I can see them and feel them. You helped me a lot to be more organised with my routines and food. I totally recommend you for this challenge and I motivate everyone to do it, not just your body changes but your mind. Thanks for making this possible."
"Thank you sooo much for making gym fun! Your programs are a mix which makes it so much fun and makes me keen to go after work, I dont feel like Im doing it on my own. Thank you so much for the support, great food options, and the great results that I am extremely proud to flaunt!! I have been a little obsessed with workouts before but now I am ecstatic. You're such a lovely person Alex thanks again buddy. I cant wait for gymfit 2 but I will start it the following week as advised by yourself."
"So what did #Crockfit do for me?
The nutrition plan for me has been amazing. I have lost 18lb during the 12 weeks, feel better and I am more aware of how to fuel my body.
I have a ceramic hip replacement and after many surgeries limited mobility in my left hip. With ceramic replacements being very hard wearing but brittle, impact sports are also ruled out. This for me meant there are a lot of the exercise’s I can’t do. Squat jumps, bicycle crunch, burpees, plant lifts, side wipers, squat thrust, lunge jumps, mountain climber outside knee, leg wipers, frog squat jumps, squat tuck jump, spider man press up, full burpee tuck. So do I give up because that list is quite out facing!! No. I have either carried on with the easier exercise’s and/or used a swiss ball under my shins while in a plank and rolled the ball forward to try and engage my core muscles as much as possible. The after photo will show if I got the alternative exercise right! Am I happy with my progress so far? Has it been worth it for me? Most definitely."
Hello everyone, that's my results from the 12 weeks program! I am so proud of my self that I made it! I can tell the first cycle is great I've become so much stronger after just 3 weeks and got a really good body. Everything was great until I got sick and couldn't train for 2 weeks. When I came to week 8 I went to the hospital and operated my stomach.. There I got the problem with my plan I didn't ate well or train at all! I just couldn't! It took me 1 week so I could go again. Well well... But I made it anyway. I really want to thank you Alex Crockford for everything. I am so glad that I found you! Now I am ready for the GymFit2!
"THANK YOU ALEX!
Without your #shefit programme i never would have achieved this for my wedding in less than 4 weeks now. Feeling so happy and much more confident, loving my new life in the gym and the best thing is I feel like I haven't given up too much either. Can't believe I've achieved these results without a 'diet'! Thank you so much."
"The whole 12 week crockfit plan has literally helped turn my life around. I used to smoke and binge drink, sleep badly, eat poorly and was generally tired a lot. Let's just say the complete opposite to all the above is true now!
My one piece of advise to anyone starting a crockfit plan is that for just 12 weeks you give it 100% follow Alex's advise, diet plans, gym & cardio plans and don't stray...its only 12 weeks and it will give you 100% back in results. It will also leave you with habits that last a lifetime.
I'm already looking forward to gymfit2 and what comes after that....thank you Alex"
"After 12 weeks with Alex GymFit 1 Program I lost over 16 Kg. I feel so much fitter and healthier. I changed my whole life. Before I was a fast food lover. Sometimes up to 3 times a day. And Sports?? No way. I didn't move more than necessary. But now, I can't imagine a day without moving my body. Cooking has become much more fun. It was and sometimes still is very hard. But Alex motivated me the whole way through. Via social media or Mail. He is always available. I came from a massive 130 kg down to 113.1 kg . And I can't wait to start GymFit 2."
"12 weeks completed! What can I say? Fat loss, muscle gain, increased fitness and energy levels. Feels like I’ve been doing this for a long time but it’s only been 12 weeks and what a change it’s made to my life. New eating habits formed and I love working out. The biggest motivator is seeing results though, that starting picture vs. the 12 week picture really shows how far you have come, it is however only the start of the journey.#Crockfit is not a fad diet to get slim quick for holiday, it is seriously life changing and changes how you look at food and fitness. Alex is always on hand for advice and the #Crockfit community have been great, following other with the same challenges motivates you to keep going. If you’re stuck in a rut (like I was!) get #Crockfit, it gets results!!!"
"I've really enjoyed #crockfit #gymfit and am very happy with the results, the meal plans provided are delicious and healthy and allow you to adapt and create your own recipes, I'd thoroughly recommend #crockfit!"
"On week 4 of the #crockfit #shefit I feel a lot fitter and stronger. I am really enjoying my gym sessions and actually look forward to going (something I thought I would never say). The programme is great and a real mixture of different excersises which are so easy to follow! I've tried other programmes before but found them hard to follow but #shefit is different and it's great for a gym novice like me! I'm really looking forward to seeing what I can achieve in the next 8 weeks! Thanks Alex"
'I started the programme looking to lose weight, I was 15st 8lbs the heaviest I had been and needed to get into shape for my wedding. The first few weeks were hard but seeing results helped. After about 8 weeks i was slipping back into old habits but your emails and posts of motivation helped me get back on track. Now with the 12 weeks gone i am down to 13st 12lbs. I have always struggled with fitness plans and finding something that works but #Crockfit #Homefit has really worked and would recommend it to anyone looking to make a change.’
"I wanted to lose a little weight and get a little fitter, so asked Alex if he could give me some advice. He suggested his "#homefit" programme, so thought I would give it a go!!! 12 weeks on, my fitness has improved, and have lost over two stone in weight, I also feel so much better in myself. Big key is having to send in a photo at end of each cycle, as it gives you a incentive to keep going!!! I'm not quite where I want to be yet, but I will be !!!!"
12 weeks on my #CrockFit plan COMPLETE!!! It's weird knowing I looked like that pic on the left 12 weeks ago. After Christmas, I decided I wanted to get back to the best shape of my life, and waking up and seeing myself in the mirror in the pic on the right makes me feel amazing knowing that I've come so far. My story is much much more than just visible changes, it's about how I feel in myself. Was it perfect? No. Did I mess it up? Yes! But did I keep focussed on what I REALLY wanted? YES!
The whole philosophy of my #CrockFit lifestyle is not about sacrificing everything in 12 weeks to get the most results and then fall off after 12 weeks is up! It's about merging new habits of healthy lifestyle & training into your life for LIFELONG health, vitality and without a doubt - a better body!
"My time on #Crockfit
Firstly on a whole 12weeks of serious training and dieting is going to get you in shape but the results I have achieved have surpassed my expectations, even with a self inflicted injury after the first 4weeks that put me out the gym for over a week and off the cardio regime for over 2 weeks!! The workouts constantly tested me from week to week and the diet plan contained a good variety of dishes which made dieting more enjoyable!! Along with your help throughout with any questions I have thrown your way I would recommend this plan to any gym goer be them non-serious or serious!! Thanks for everything Alex, looking forward to the release of #GymFit2"
"I am now into my 9/12 week of the #CrockFit #HomeFit programme. The pic on the left was taken on 3rd January 2016, the pic on the right was taken a couple of days ago. I've had a couple of slip ups along the way, but my general health and fitness has improved so much over such a short space of time and I'm so glad I signed up for this - it's given me the boost I needed and with the support from the other #CrockFitters, it only motivates me to carry on!"
"I feel sooo proud of myself, cause even if I only started cardio towards the end of the plan, i am 100% sure that I was respecting my body's limits, both mentally and physically. And sticking to the plan, respecting rest periods, number of sets... by myself was the hardest challenge. One that I absolutely loved facing. I just lost a few clothes but cause i gained muscle, which is the best reason to buy new outfits in my opinion. I am really excited about this new journey and thankful that you gave me this opportunity!"
"My time in Alex's #GymFit program was amazing. I have a pattern of rarely following through with things I start but this broke the cycle. I had been looking for a fitness program and had followed Alex online for about a year, wishing I had a body like his. I stuck with the gym program, and the food program (for the most part) and even though I didn't always complete the cardio portions, I still got amazing results. Alex motivated me through email checkins, and keeping me accountable on social media - which was a total game changer for me.
As a result of changing my physical body, I've watched my life transform before my eyes and am attracting all kinds of amazing opportunities and people.
By choosing a trainer with such a positive attitude, I was able to keep the vision I had for my body and watch it come to fruition. I'm beyond happy with where I'm at and incredibly excited for continuous improvement! As a kid I would never take my shirt off - now I never put one on! " -DC James @danielcjames
'Using Alex's #CrockFit 12 week gym programme not only transformed by body quicker than I ever thought I could do, but I've also built new healthy habits that extend further than just the 12 weeks so now health, fitness and training is a part of my life. I have made new goals now that the first 3 months has finished and can't wait to see what I can achieve in the long term! I am without a doubt in the best shape of my life, so if you are looking for structure, knowledge, motivation and guidance to set up the direction to transform your body then the #CrockFit programmes is what you're looking for.'
I entered crockfit in a good place, having lost over 15kg and increased fitness - but my progress' had levelled off. Having a structured program to follow along with online support was just awesome. The plan gave me the confidence to push myself and focus at every workout. Crucially though, the nutrition guidelines and supplementation plan really helped me transform my body shape and pile on muscle. It's been truly life changing and I can't thank Alex enough!'
"Through CrockFit I've learned that being healthy and fit is not a series of tasks to learn and repeat but instead a behavior to adopt and lifestyle to live."
