IF YOU told Rebecca Hone three years ago she would lose 42kg and become a personal trainer, she wouldn't have believed you.

The 26-year-old knew her life needed a change when she stepped on the scale and it read - 110kg.

She had recently given birth to her second child and decided it was time to change her life, and her family's life for the better.

"It's not just about appearances, it's a mental thing too and I wasn't feeling like myself," Rebecca said.

The mother-of-two began with some jogging and eventually joined boot camps with Positive Existence Personal Training (PEPT) to reach her goal weight of 68kg.

And heading to boot camps have changed Rebecca's life, she has reached her goal weight and is already setting new goals to tackle.

"I don't have anymore weight to lose, my goals have shifted to boxing and being fit," she said.

Rebecca is now a trainer with PEPT and can't believe how much her life has changed. 

She said her family are eating healthier and she feels amazing. 

"Changing your nutrition is hard... I had to cut down sugar intake and increase the amount of water I drank," Rebecca said.

"You need to make healthy eating a habit."

While beginning the journey to a healthier life was a challenge, Rebecca has a few tips for other stay-at-home mums wanting to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

She said simply walking or running with her baby in the pram was a start, and then she found PEPT who has child minding which made a big difference.

She also took the kids to the park and exercised while they played.  "The first step is the hardest," Rebecca said.
