"I'm glad I didn’t wait to start the course because that would have been more of my life wasted."

The Life! champions booklet showcases Life! participants who have chosen action and life over unhealthy habits and inactivity.
The quotes and editorial from these Life! champions provide real life case studies. Life! facilitators can use these stories to motivate their course participants and the content can also be used when writing about the Life! course or telephone health coaching service.
These case studies and testimonials of participants who have either participated in a Life! Course or telephone health coaching provide insight into the program and the benefits associated with their involvement.
Here's what our participants have to say about the Life! course:
"When you’re younger it’s all about appearance, appearance, appearance. But it’s gone beyond what I look like now – it’s the way I feel."
"I’ve got a daughter, I want to see her go down the aisle. I want to nurse my grandkids."
"It’s easier to be a martyr and look after everyone around you: the people at work, family, friends, than to take the time that you need to look after yourself."
"One thing I really liked about the course was the lack of emphasis on weighing in. So I could learn some lessons without being worried about whether I’d lost weight that week."
"I was really looking for something that was a lifestyle, something that wasn’t a seesaw, up-and-down thing – something that I could do for the rest of my life."
"The trap is, in our younger days we do anything we like to our body and we get away with it."
"I’ve found the main benefit, apart from the weight loss, is that I feel a lot more alert and able to concentrate more, more interested in things, so that my work productivity has doubled since I’ve been doing it. (That could be an exaggeration), and there’s been a big improvement in the way I feel."
The success stories contained in this booklet are to be celebrated and shared.
