A fitness and fat loss professional has been nominated for an inaugural top award in her industry.
Jill Gardner, 38, of Newport Pagnell, is also known as The Fat Controller and she has made it to the semi-finals of Fitness Professional of the year 2013,
Now she’s keeping her fingers crossed for the public vote to decide who makes it through to the live finals where last years ‘Biggest Loser’ Kevin Mclernon is on the judging panel. Voting will close on March 24.
“I can’t believe I have even been nominated,” said Jill, whose business in Huxley Close is called hateitchangeit. “I have to literally pinch myself. Twenty-six years ago I was fat, miserable and depressed. I hated exercise and comfort ate through school and even forged my own PE notes.”
Now she’s competing on equal terms against 20 of the best fitness professionals in the business. The awards are organised by fitness professionals’ organisation FitPro.
The single mum of two teens has created an on-line fat loss product to help people all over the world to go from dieting to fat controlling. Along with this Jill has pioneered fat controlling cookery, created her own fitness DVD and has a series of cookery books very soon to be published.
She said: “I just love helping people who struggle with diets to change their mindset. With over 95 per cent of diets failing and around 66 per cent of people getting fatter after dieting my mission is to educate an army of fat controllers who never have to diet, count calories or be confused about food again.
“The emphasis with my programs is to gain control over food and not be controlled by food. This ultimately leads to you feeling fitter, stronger and happier.”
