One day at work, I was looking for news on the internet and by accident I found the site of the Christian‘s camp: I started to read it first, with little attention, but then, in the following days, I came slowly involved; first of all, cause the idea to train all day Muai Thay and Krav Maga was a desire I had since a kid, then for the fact that it was also proposed a program of Weight Loss, and teased even more, the possibility of a change of air, take off from the dullness of everyday life of my country, to go halfway around the world, in an exotic country that intrigued me for a long time already.
So, taken my balls in hand (for what little was left of them) and threw the heart beyond the obstacle: I wrote a long email to Christian explaining my situation which him replied diligent and concise, competent and, as I had opportunity to see for myself later, truthful.
Arrived at the camp in December 2012, there remained 40 days.
The first days were traumatic because the workouts were hard, diet, personalized and very accurate, was quantitatively comparable to my afternoon snack, but I resisted because I knew that Christian and Barbara were people who knew what they were doing, in short, they were and are two very, very competent persons …… and these days is not a small thing!
After the first week I started to get used to the efforts, take the pace of the new way of life, and I was thrilled!
In those 40 days I trusted completely Barbara and Christian, I trusted and I learned a lot from their experiences and their advice; I was trained and disciplined about what and how much to eat, and their precious precepts were followed by me with precision and care when returned to Italy; result: lost 11kg during his stay at the camp, about 13kg lost in Italy following their teachings (also thanks to their availability via email about all the doubts and questions that came to mind about the proper nutrition and exercises to be carried out) greater discipline in training and, something unthinkable only a few months earlier, my first running race of 10km !!
But luck and the most important gift was to find in Barbara and two precious Christian and sincere friends, people with whom to share and cultivate experiences, emotions and thoughts.
