UK mom of two, Ruth Garbutt, has completed a 10 week transformation programme to regain her pre-pregnancy body and with the help of Shapewatch to monitor and visualise her key biometrics along the way.
Wife of Hull Kingston Rover’s UK Super League rugby player Mitch Garbutt, Ruth is no stranger to an athletic lifestyle. But two cesarean births and toddlers wreaked havoc on her body and she knew she was capable of getting back to her former pre-pregnancy glory.
“It's gonna be 10 weeks of pain, dedication and a lot of sacrifices but I am raring to go and can't wait to get that goal!" - Ruth Garbutt
Working at Fitness Space gym in Leeds with personal trainer Adam Haines, Ruth partnered up with Shapewatch to track her weekly progress, Lean Lunch for nutrition and XTEND for supplements–in order to achieve a strong, lean body in just 10 weeks.
Training 6 days a week, the sessions were an hour or an hour and a half depending on activity. The aim was to keep Ruth’s heart rate above 180/190 using a combination of strength and conditioning, HIIT training, Cardio and Weights.
“One thing I’ve noticed is that they stop me reaching for the Twix or whatever, I have no real hunger for the sweet things I used to eat.” - Ruth Garbutt
“This unique visualisation tool really helped to connect the major changes I made to my lifestyle into real-time body results, adding both motivation and accountability for my actions.” - Ruth Garbutt
