Educogym ???

Postby Angel! » Mon Apr 07, 2008 8:48 am

Hi girls,

I haven't been around here for a LONG time, but decided to come back for a chat :wv

Anyone joined that educogym place? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I just got a present of some personal training sessions there...

Just turned 30 so having the 'getting older and fatter' panic attacks !!

I put back on all the weight I lost for wedding. I used to run a lot, but the old knees are getting a bit worse for wear so can't really do it any more. Want to concentrate on toning muscles now etc....

All feedback greatly appreciated !!!

One of the girls I work with did it, she went from a 16/18 to a 12. She though it was great. My only misgiving is that it's part of the Tony Quinn group and they fed her full of suipplements and thats how I think she really lost the weight, and when she quit it stayed off for a while and then came back on, I'd say if you did it and then stuck at the gym and a healthy diet it might be ok.

to be honest I think its a bit of a con - firend of mine did the kick start 12 day (think it was 12 days ) programme think it was around €400 he was eating nothing only supplements and drinking water and at the gym every night hence a substantial weight loss - then he continued on the follow on programme think it was 200/300 every few weeks and it was gym several days in the week and healthy meals like steamed fish/chicken plenty veg no booze ! to be honest if you made those kind of changes yourself you'd loose weight and the money it cost is a bit much you could join a gym for the year and get a few sessions with a personal trainer - he has since put back on the weight too as it was very hard to stick with

i wouldnt personally reccomend it i did it last august and i lasted a week before i nearly clapped out. they put me on over 20 pills a day creatine powder protein shakes i felt like a junkie. i was only allowed eat a handful of monkey nuts for breakfast with 2 boiled eggs :hic . for lunch green salad no carrots , no sugary things at all and for dinner it had to be fatty meat no chicken or poulrty and green veg . you were not allowed eat any veg that grows into the ground iykwim. no fruit , no fizzy drinks no gum nada. just water and plain black tea no milk either and you had to have a spoon of ceam cheese with every meal again :hic .
the exercises were good but i could barely walk it was 20 minutes per night.
but anyway after the 6th day i started feeling really weak, tired sick . then on day 7 my heart started racing and wouldnt stop and when i rang them they told me it wasnt the diet or the pills. i should go se a doctor they told me.cheek. but i dropped 8 pounds in the 7 days and felt horrible i demanded half my money back which i got back.
i then started ww started eating healthly and have lost 18 pounds since although i did put on 4 pounds the first week i came off that horriic diet but ww helped me keep off the rest . its only a quick fix diet really like lipotrim stick to something like ww or unslim and a bit of exercise and it will come off and stay off.

TWO WORDS.................STAY CLEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know someone who tried this and it's an absolute joke. In my opinion it is not a healthy way to lose weight AT ALL. They push a huge amount of supplements on you and charge you an arm and a leg for them and they give you a ridiculous diet to follow. It's also v v expensive and you can join a gym or stick to your own fitness regime at a fraction of the cost.

The instructors don't actually do anything for you....except for the first night when they're trying to impress and rob you of your hard earned cash!!!

Here are a few links to give you more opinions:

If you just type educo gym discussions into google and you will find lots of discussions about it.....and a word of warning....not many of them paint a good picture!

Best of luck with whatever you decide to do.

I did it and I lost the inches but only lost 1 lousy lb in 12 days, I didn't have alot of weight to lose but just wanted to be in good shape for a holiday. It is extremely hard going with the supplements and restrictive diet but I have to say I definitely saw the results body wise, but not scale wise. Would highly recommend it for a "quick fix" maybe 2 1/2 weeks before you get married or go on holiday and want to get in shape. A friend of mine did it without taking the supplements and got a fab result so reckon supplements are a total scam.. The downside is that like every training programme, as soon as you stop working out the muscles get flabby again instead of toned but it's a hard regime to keep up as the cost for 3 months in Educo is on par with what you'd pay for membership for a year in a swanky gym!

Educo gym is a really bad tony quinn scam you'll put all the weight back on when you stop following the crazy diet. Join an ordinary ben dunne gym and put the extra money into getting a trainer who will show you how to use weights.
