The 3 Comparison photo’s: From a young age, Calista struggled with her weight and self-image, as she had a compulsive eating disorder, that lead to her weight gain to 115kg at the age of 16 years old. Her Fitness Journey started from the age of 17, when they moved to George. She started training at Virgin Active, and met Herschelle Jantjies (George eta Alumni Student)(UltraFITT). Herschelle saw the potential in her, as he mentioned that he can see her on the front page of a Fitness Magazine.
At this stage, (115kg) she didn’t think that it would be possible, and brushed it off. Herschelle(UltraFITT) as the Specialist in the field, saw her potential and offered to assist her with any fitness guidance. This led Calista to Johan du Doit (Intensity Training, Fitness, Nutrition & Clothing) regarding guidance to Nutrition, and weigh ins. Unfortunately as we all know our bodies are different, you will need to experiment with different eating plans, to ensure that you find the right one.
