Conquering Fitness as a Vegetarian: Sharon's Incredible Transformation

Sharon heads up digital commerce in the highly competitive Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector. Now in her 40s Sharon had concerns that her vegetarian lifestyle might be a hurdle in her fitness journey, but working with her ATP Personal Training coach she soon discovered that was far from the truth.

"A lot of people may think that as a vegetarian, it's hard for you to gain muscle. It's hard for you to train. That's not true."

Sharon’s world changed when she met her ATP coach Angelica, she understood the unique challenges of a vegetarian diet. Together, they created a tailored plan to ensure Sharon’s nutritional needs were met.

With determination and consistency, Sharon started to see results. Her energy levels soared, and she was able to face daily challenges head-on. Her friends took notice and started their own fitness journeys, inspired by her transformation.

"I've got friends who are also taking on their own fitness journey as a result of seeing mine."

As she continued to work with Angelica, Sharon started supplementing her diet with essential amino acids not commonly found in a vegetarian diet. This small change made a massive difference in her progress.

Sharon’s hard work paid off, and she achieved far more than she ever imagined. She cut her body fat in half, surpassing her initial goals and proving that anything is possible with dedication and the right guidance.

"It's great that we achieved half the body fat. It's actually a lot more than what we set out to achieve together."

How did you overcome the challenges of maintaining a vegetarian diet while working on your fitness goals?

Partnering with a knowledgeable coach who understood the unique needs of vegetarians was crucial. My Coach Angelica helped me identify essential amino acids that I needed to supplement in my diet and guided me on making the right food choices to support my fitness journey.
