Sammy Jo recently participated in Magnum Trainer Samantha Anderson’s Fitness Fusion Transformation Challenge. This 8-week challenge is fueled by positivity and creating sustainable, healthy change. Samantha hosts daily virtual boot camps and weekly community mindset calls to motivate and empower others. The challenge not only coaches fitness habits and routines, but also accountability, balance, and healthy habit setting.
Sammy joined the Transformation Challenge because she started to feel less like herself once she started working from home. Snacks were in abundance and always within reach. She lost motivation to workout because she was cooped up at home all day and after 9 months, she had gained 30lbs. Her favourite clothes were not fitting and she lost her self-confidence.
After seeing a friend complete the 8-Week Transformation Challenge, Sammy knew it was the push she needed to start her fitness journey. She found it challenging to get used to a new routine, but with consistency, she regained her strength and working out regularly became less difficult. She achieved a new level of self-discipline through practicing healthy eating and portion control.
What helped motivate Sammy during this challenge was how much better she started to feel internally. Once she started feeling better from within, she started to notice the changes in her appearance. She reflected, “It felt so good to ‘see’ that my dedication and hard work was starting to show. It definitely made me want to keep going.”
Over the 8 weeks, Sammy lost 8lbs, but she gained so much more. She gained self-confidence and a new appreciation for herself. She started each day with more energy and ended each day feeling stronger. She learned how to celebrate her wins, no matter how big or small, and being a part of the transformation community helped motivate Sammy to push even harder.
Sammy stated, “I would have to say that I am most proud of learning not to compare myself to others and realize that I was on my own journey. Whether my progress was slower than someone else’s or I wasn’t losing weight as fast, it was okay!”
What differentiated this fitness journey from others for Sammy was balance. Magnum Trainer, Samantha Anderson preaches sustainable growth through balance. Now, she is equipped with healthy habits and an arsenal of workouts she enjoys.
Sammy supplemented her incredible transformation with her favourite Magnum products. She uses the thermogenic fat burning powder, Fasted Cardio to provide energy and ensure she burns maximum calories with every workout. Sammy also uses Quattro, the four-stage pure protein isolate blend, after her workouts for recovery.
When we asked Sammy what advice she would give to someone looking to embark on a fitness transformation of their own, she said to make sure you're doing it for the right reason: for yourself. She advises others to work at their own pace and to focus on the wins each week, whether they are small or big.
Sammy Jo is a huge motivation for us at Magnum. We are inspired by people wanting to make impactful positive changes in their lives and we are grateful that we could be a part of her incredible transformation.
