Do You Know Your Breaking Point?
Discover exactly what pushed my clients into starting
“Not being able to get good life insurance when we bought our house and I wasn’t eligible for critical life. That happened in May and by August I discovered MD!! Haven’t looked back and I now get critical cover!! And my wedding too xx”
“I’d an appointment with the fertility clinic that I needed to lose weight for. Turns out there was nothing they could do to assist. I’m – along with Dee’s help – still coming to terms with that. Never felt able to put that out there!!”
“Being called fat by random people on nights out and also “friends”. Crying in the toilets on nights out, at night at home and self isolating.. then my cousin asked me to be bridesmaid and I knew that I couldn’t have walked down the aisle with the zero confidence I had and I was so thankful to be part of her special day. I’m def not where I want be and that’s a work in progress but exercise gives u confidence and being able to tackle Hard as Oak and do the classes at MDF have worked wonders on my self esteem and confidence as most of my “skinny” friends have no motivation or could do what we do.. now I have my wedding to look forward to and to fit into my dream dress is keeping me on the right path but I know Million Dollar will always be my safe and happy place and yous will be stuck with me for years yet lol “
“My uncle had a stroke at 64 in February and I realised that I am getting nearer 40, my grandfather died at 54 that I wanted to be in as good a shape as I can be to try and stop diabetes, stroke and/ or cardiovascular disease getting me. Plus I look like my sister and she has put on a lot of weight recently and my husband just keeps saying, you are getting like your sister. Nuff said!!!😋“
“When a tragic accident made me realise I had better be in shape in case I am ever called to save someone’s life….the Buncrana tragedy. Weird, I know. I realised I need to be ready physically.”
“Not coping with the pressures of ever-changing shift patterns and gruelling 12 hour A&E shifts!! Also a big wake-up photograph of myself that literally made me cry 😢”
“Wanted to have a nosey at your gym way up Spencer Road… never left ’cause I knew I was in good hands 😀😀”
“Needed to do something to shift the weight but also get fitter. Trailed the internet and found MDF, read the testimonials and went for it. Glad I did.”
“My friend told me about her client Dee starting her own gym. We went one night when you used to have to lock us in but I still loved it and never looked back nearly 4 years xx“
“I really needed to focus on getting fit and have routine in my life getting there slowly but surely. Had an awful eating pattern due to shift work so diet also needed a complete overhaul.“
"Getting near to the big 40 was my inspiration, wanted to be fabulous and fit at 40! Now fitter than ever b4."
“Looking at pictures or videos and seeing how heavy u are and hearing people say it to u ! Just got to point where I needed to change before it got worse 😉“
“Breaking point was a picture and the clothes I couldn’t fit into. I have a wardrobe of 2 parts – the fat wardrobe and the thin wardrobe. Throwing out an item was suggested to me by Dee Mccahill at the start of my journey.. my wardrobe now contains the clothes that fit me. Larger ones have been thrown out. The thin wardrobe is a box that I open now and again, when I feel or have lost more weight 😳🙄”
“I used to be a 20 a day smoker 7 years ago. I stopped when I realised I was pregnant. I never went back on the cigarettes but I felt really unfit. I started running when my son was about 2 years old and continue to do so; however, I started with MDF because I wanted to tone my whole body and not just my legs! I am confident that if I keep up the classes and eat sensibly I will achieve my goal!”
“Accepting that I needed to exercise and stay flexible due to a condition I have called Anklosing Spondylitis I wanted to try MD as I heard others at work talk about it, started 3 years ago to try and see if working out would help manage my pain. Still have episodes when I experience chronic pain but as my body is stronger and fitter they are not as frequent and coming to MD really helps me stay sane!! Love it! 💪💪“
“I was never a sporty type, didn’t do regular exercise and never felt physically ‘fit’. Then, just as I was approaching 30, my coeliac consultant advised me that I’d need to be doing regular exercise to strengthen and maintain my bones after an unsatisfactory bone scan and I was at risk of osteopenia. I’d tried a few gyms before but they weren’t for me. The final push then was when I got engaged and wanted to look my best for my wedding day. Shortly after I found Dee and joined MD back up in Spencer Rd – it didn’t take long before I became addicted!! Dee has been a great friend and mentor ever since. By the time my wedding came round I was in the healthiest and best shape of my life! Now I’m back at MD after some time out having my baby boy. My body has completely changed and my fitness levels feel like they’re back to square one – but I still feel motivated as I know with MD & Dee’s support I’ll get back to my old self in time! Thanks Dee! ☺!”
“Had my daughter at 23 which triggered thyroid problems which caused me to have difficulty shifting the jelly belly and working hectic nursing shifts doesn’t help especially when previously I was always one of those people that could eat what I wanted and never put on much weight! Eventually got the thyroid sorted but was in denial (it was just baby weight)! 4 years later I was looking at myself in the mirror feeling awful not fitting in clothes and feeling sluggish and tired (couldn’t blame the thyroid anymore as its gone and I’m well under control now)! Then I heard how wonderful MDF was from a friend and I emailed Dee and I haven’t looked back! I’ve more energy, I’m eating better and I love going to the classes – in fact I even go as far to say I miss them when I can’t go and realised all I was doing was making excuses!!”
"As somebody who has convinced herself crunchy nut cornflakes are a good breakfast option, I don't feel in any way entitled to answer this however, I know I am a disgrace and I am humbled to read these posts and when I get back on it, I will join in with some positive stuff .... I haven't forgotten how wonderful MDF is, I've just temporarily lost my way xxx"
“I always suffered from hyperemosesis when I was pregnant, so, after the babies were born, I would just eat everything I couldn’t when I was pregnant. My baby was 1, my waistline was still expanding and the ‘it’s just a bit of baby weight’ excuse was wearing thin.“
“A combination of the following...
1) The realisation that buying jeans 3 sizes bigger than before was NOT down to the small fit
2) Seeing how happy two of my friends were at MDF
3) Having my bestie in the same frame of mind.
4) I was struggling with walking the length of myself and Asthma was NOT to blame.
I owe a lot to the lovely Dee and I will be forever grateful xx“
