Success Stories - Ben (Australia) - WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM
I arrived at Kombat gym at the start of September 2011, my main goal was to lose weight and I also wanted to learn about Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu having never trained in any martial arts before.
On arrival I weighed 102 Kg, I lost 13 kg during my 6 weeks at Kombat, I believe there was potential to have lost even more during that period.
Before Kombat i had often tried to stick to low fat/low calorie diets which I found very challenging and they often resulted in weight gain as I would end up over eating once i lost motivation.
At Kombat i was placed on a low carbohydrate diet which took time for me to adjust too however I found this much more satisfying and didn't leave me as hungry.
I found the weight loss program very beneficial as I find the first few weeks of any diet/ exercise program the most difficult.
The advantage of Kombat was it removed the temptations the surround me at home and I was in a supportive environment where people shared the same goals and interests.
I have maintained my fitness and eating plan since arriving home and as of February 2012 my current weight is 78 kg.
Leaving me with a total weight loss of 24kg since my first day at Kombat.
Another advantage of the weight loss course; given that I had no experience in any martial art, was that it incorporated every discipline that is instructed at Kombat this exposure gave me an appreciation for BJJ and Krav maga which I was unfamiliar with.
I found that the location of Kombat was a short drive from the tourist district of Pattaya but no so close that it become a distraction during the week days.
The local people in the area were friendly and hospitable. What i was most impressed by was the patience of the instructors constantly working with absolute beginners, I would highly recommend the weight loss program to anyone that finds it hard to stick to an exercise or eating plan and anyone who has a limited amount of time and would like to be exposed to a wide variety of fighting styles all in the one location.
