ERIN Maggioni is a national winner in the Your New Beginning (YNB) 12-week challenge after losing 18.7kg.

Ms Maggioni took part in the Belgravia Leisure program at Aqua Jetty Aquatic and Leisure Centre in Warnbro.

The program is designed to inspire Australians to become healthier and more active through small group personal training, group fitness classes and access to nutritional and meal planning expertise.

Ms Maggioni was one of four winners in Australia.

She said she was proud to win and was even happier to have transformed her life.

Ms Maggioni has kept off the weight and continued training since the challenge finished.

“In 12 weeks short weeks, I have transformed from someone who could barely walk around the block and facing health issues associated with obesity, to someone who can run around with their children and has energy to get through the day,” she said.

“Not only have my fitness and energy levels improved drastically but a healthier diet evolved naturally along with it.”

Aqua Jetty centre manager Matt Lewis said it was a privilege to play a role in helping people take control of their lives.

“Our health club actively works with the local community to give people the support they need to achieve the health and fitness results they seek,” he said.

“Everyone has a different reason to get back in the gym, but everyone shares the common goal of wanting to take back control of their life.

“Having an active and healthy lifestyle is the foundation to getting more out of life.

“Erin is a great example of this and we are really proud to have her work out at our health club.”

YNB will be on again at Aqua Jetty Aquatic and Leisure Centre in February 2018.
