A super-slim woman has shared how she managed to move almost nine stone – and attributes her new incredible figure to pole dancing.

Vikki McNamara from Dublin, Ireland has struggled with her weight for years and found it difficult to shed the pounds.

But now she is so successful that she quit her previous job to retrain as a fitness trainer.

Her secret to losing weight and keeping it off is all about exercise, reports RSVP Live. She says she was tired of feeling like an old lady with an aching body — so she did something about it.

The mother said: “When my son was a baby I carried him down the stairs and my knees felt sore, my back felt sore.

She was struggling to lose weight – and felt like an ‘old lady’.

Now Vikki has gone through a full body transformation

“I just felt like an old lady, I had no energy. I then started to do something, but it took a long, long time. It took many different programs, I’ve been around the block, I’ve tried them all.

“I had lost maybe two or three stone, and then my friend and I decided to do something different and try a fitness class.

“I wasn’t fit at all, but we decided to do a pole fitness class.”

It was pole fitness that sparked Vikki’s joy in fitness and helped her shed the rest of the weight.

“That’s how it started, it was something different,” Vikki said. “With movement and movement you just start to feel yourself again.”

This inspired Vikki to retrain as a fitness instructor – something she thinks she would be good at because she knows what it’s like to be overweight and unfit and can help anyone who trains with her in a similar scenario.

“Being overweight, I knew how difficult it can be for someone to go to a fitness class,” Vikki said.

“I started teaching courses at Balbriggan and now I’m a qualified instructor and master trainer in a few things.”

Vikki also has her own website and social media pages where she posts fitness videos and offers one-on-one sessions.

For her, her classes are aimed at women in a similar age group as her, namely women in their forties and fifties.

“I want to add variety to the gym,” said Vikki. “Make sure all components are filled instead of just running marathons – nothing wrong with that!

“But just making sure you’re sitting all the boxes is hugely important.”
