Kirsten Taplin … I approached Billy at LF Samui Crossfit at the end of a 3 month overseas trip, excessive eating and drinking had meant that if I didn’t do something drastic I would be going home 6-7kg heavier than my normal weight. I had 15 days with Billy to do something about it. I started at 61kg (height 1.61m) . Following Billy’s instruction, for the first few days I ran in the morning (varying distances) and went through a circuit he prescribed in the afternoon. I also followed a diet plan he suggested, fruit for breakfast, raw vegetables as snacks, salad or brown rice at lunch and a protein shake for dinner. After just 6 days I had already lost 3.5kg. The second week was harder, I continued to run in the mornings, varying and increasing the distance with high intensity, whole body, timed circuits in the afternoons. Although these were challenging the sense of accomplishment after finishing them in a good time was great. I trained twice a day every day except for Sundays which were a day off from training, but not from the diet. At weigh in on my 15th day I was 54.6kg. I lost 6.4kg in 15 days by following Billy’s instruction and training hard. I absolutely loved training at LF Samui Crossfit and would recommend it to any body wanting to lose weight or increase their fitness level. You will be pushed to do things you did not think possible and you will come out the other side stronger, more confident and if you stick to the plan, looking great! Thanks Billy for helping me get my body back!!
Sarah Moran … I couldn’t say a bad word about LF Samui if I tried! I’m a 21 year old female and I stayed in Samui training for a total of 2 months. I could not believe the transformation that occurred in that time thanks to Billy’s training. When I arrived I couldn’t run 2 kilometres and in a few short weeks I was running almost 8km every morning through the jungle and even managed the 12km jungle run as well. The training is always different so you’re constantly challenging your body, I couldn’t believe how much stronger I got in such a short period of time, starting off with 3kg dumbbells for my squats to surprising myself when I was made to do 40kg deadlifts one training session. You won’t find a gym that offers as much personal attention as LF Samui, nothing gets past Billy, he’ll know if you’re slacking off and he’ll know if you’re eating badly – so if you want to go somewhere where you really get pushed to your limits and get the results you really want then that kind of attention is exactly what you need. He’ll also be able to tell when you start finding a workout easy and he’ll adjust it to make it harder so you are constantly pushing your body. I left home at 57.5kg and returned at 52kg – exactly what I wanted, and I’m the fittest and strongest I’ve ever been. I would go back again in a heartbeat. The workouts are intense, they’re actually enjoyable and the results are real. And the friends you’ll meet are for life. I stayed by myself and was really scared at first, but the people staying there become your family and you’ll feel at home in no time. You all sit around the café for breakfast, usually get dinner at the markets, and people are always up for other activities especially on the weekend. Really it’s the ideal tropical holiday complete with amazing beach – except you don’t have to go home having put on weight like every other holiday! Instead you’ll go home completely transformed. I couldn’t stop raving about it so much that my boyfriend ended up coming to join me for a week, and so did my sister. Both of them absolutely loved it – Can’t stop recommending it to everyone I talk to!
