Simela Kosmidis Transformation Story

simella kosmidis

Never in my life did I ever pass 145 pounds. But then life happens, and sometimes you change. About a year ago, I was prescribed a medication, that one of its side effects was weight gain. I wasn't too concerned because I never experienced any side effect before from any medication. This time though I did. It made me balloon up to 183 pounds.

I was so depressed because whatever I tried to do to lose weight wasn't working for me. That was until I signed up to Matrix Fitness Club and a personal trainer, Hicham. He taught me the proper way to diet, and pushed me on my workouts. Even when I thought there was a specific exercise I couldn't do, his confidence in me made me able to push myself to do things I didn't know my body could do! I now weigh 148 pounds, losing a total of 35 pounds, and I'm also down to 22% body fat from the 34% I used to be.
