Rosie Raftellis, 22 has been a member of Pinnacle Scoresby for over 3 years and despite being plagued by injuries that required her to undergo two shoulder and one knee reconstruction she has achieved incredible results! Rosie attributes her success to three things: Consistency, a healthy relationship with food and a positive attitude. Read her full story for some guaranteed motivation…

Rosie on her proudest achievements…
I’ve dropped 15 kilos, am no longer afraid of the weights zone and have hit some PBs with weight lifting, as well as learnt new techniques and exercises.

On the changes that helped her achieve these results…
Consistent gym sessions, healthy eating (specifically portion control and no more fad diet, as well as prepping for the week ahead), and most importantly, I’ve developed a better overall attitude to diet and exercise.

On motivation…
Looking at old photos of myself to see how far I’ve come is a great motivator, as are the other gym members. If I’m feeling lazy it’s great to have a good chat to someone else in the gym and feed off their energy.

On what she’s learnt about herself…
If I want it, I can achieve it.

On how Pinnacle has helped…
The 12 Week Challenge was a big turning point for me. The combination of member and coach support, along with fun (but tough!) challenges made it easier to turn up to every session. The friends I made during the 12WKC and the supportive environment you feel as soon as you walk in to any Pinnacle Health Club – along with the recent upgrades to the Scoresby club – have helped keep me motivated to work hard on my goals.

On her proudest moment so far…
Achieving unassisted pull ups!

Rosie’s advice to anyone wanting a positive change…
Negative thoughts won’t get you anywhere.
