Men and women show off their new bodies after losing up to TEN KILOS in nine weeks

Overhauling your body might sound like a time-consuming process, but these extraordinary before and after photos show just how much can be achieved in as little as two months. 

Men and women from across Australia and New Zealand committed to the nine-week Body Breakthrough Challenge with the Vision Personal Training group – and were impressed with what they found.

The process involved two one-to-one personal training session a week, as well as group classes. They also followed a personalised nutrition programme to maximise the results.  

The winners in both categories lost up to 10kg (1st 6lbs) of fat off their bodies, and they also gained muscle and reduced their bio-age, or how old the make-up of their body is.

So what did the winners do to change their bodies?

How did the Vision clients change their bodies? 

* Two one-on-one personal training sessions per week.

* As many group sessions as they liked.

* Eating clean and a personalised nutrition programme, based on macronutrients of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

* 70 per cent of results are food related. 

Typically, the men and women would engage in two personal training sessions per week, as well as as many group sessions as they liked to take part in.

‘The two one-on-one sessions allow your trainer to keep you accountable and on track to reach your goals,’ a Vision personal trainer told Daily Mail Australia.

They coupled this with a specially-devised diet to suit their needs.

‘A Vision PT will work with you to find out your macronutrient needs for carbohydrates, protein and fat, and they will develop a plan based on your goals and food preferences.

‘We tell our clients that 70 per cent of their results are food related, so you need to think about that when doing the challenge.’

‘Throughout the nine weeks of training, I knew I had support. I could go to any trainer and say: “Hey, I’m struggling”, and they would help.’

The male winner was Clinton Bunyoung, 41, from Prahan, Victoria, who reduced his bio-age from 42 to 37 years during the challenge and said as a result: ‘I feel so alive’.

Meanwhile, the female winner was Nic Baker, a 46-year-old mother from Mona Vale, NSW, and she reduced her bio-age from 44 to 41 years in the challenge. 

Head of Vision Personal Training Operations, Gavin Aquilina, said: ‘We created a challenge that doesn’t reward extreme calorie deficit and overexercising. 

‘Instead, we’re celebrating those who can maintain or increase muscle mass as well as lose fat, which is only possible with a proper nutrition plan and commitment to exercise. 

‘It’s the most rewarding thing as a Personal Trainer to literally see years fall off your clients’ bio-age — they look and feel younger with a healthy approach to health and fitness.’
