australian personal trainer henny moody 30 shares incredible two year body transformation

A personal trainer who dropped to 47 kilos because she believed she needed to be ‘skinny to be successful’ has shared an incredible two-year body transformation to prove being thin does not make you happy.

Sydney-based fitness coach Henny Moody, 30, posted two photos on Instagram comparing her body in June 2018 to her current physique with the caption: ‘Hunny (sic), it’s time to start loving every part of who you are, just the way you are!’

In the first shot taken two years ago, the then 28-year-old looks extremely thin, with a protruding rib cage, flat chest and tiny waist.

Ms Moody was working 18 hour days as a personal trainer in Adelaide, South Australia at the time, managing her own business and coaching clients from 3am until 9pm, six days a week.

‘I lived and breathed my company [and] the fitness world and thought that I had to be ‘skinny’ to be successful,’ she said.

At her lowest weight, Ms Moody was exercising seven days a week through a combination of high intensity sprinting and boxing classes. 

But she was crippled by self-doubt.

‘I remember when I was at my skinniest I was always thinking negative self-talk. I’m telling you, being shredded AF does not bring confidence!’ she told Daily Mail Australia.

‘If I skipped a workout, I would be incredibly hard on myself.’

Two years later, her outlook has changed dramatically. Ms Moody now weighs around 60 kilos but says she hasn’t stepped on the scales in months.

While she still has a passion for fitness, she now sees it through ‘very different eyes’ and approaches exercise in a healthy way rather than obsessing over calories, training incessantly and restricting her food.

A world of difference: Ms Moody (left in May 2018 and right in March 2020) urges women to embrace their bodies and love themselves for who they are

Ms Moody keeps to a regular training routine, dedicating three days to legs, one to arms, core and full body, and another to her favourite boxing class.

She loves going for long walks with her dog Nanuk, but exercise no longer dictates her life.

‘I still exercise a lot, but it’s because I love moving my body in a positive way. If I go for a walk and that’s it, it’s a win,’ she said.

‘I love my happy kilos these days. I like that my glutes are stronger and rounder, and that I have more feminine curves,’ she said.

‘I like that I have such a positive relationship with food. I intuitively eat these days and don’t hold guilt at all. If I want a doughnut, I just eat it!’  

Ms Moody encouraged others battling insecurities to surround themselves with positive people who will help them to see their perceived flaws as ‘superpowers’ by accepting them for who they really are.

‘I now know that I am in the health and fitness game to inspire all the girls that are suffering with body confidence,’ she said.

‘You have to be patient, extra kind to yourself and fight back with positive self talk when your ‘inner mean girl’ creeps in’ she said. 

Her post resonated online, with many hailing her an inspiration for young girls in a a an age rife with filters and Photoshop.

‘You look so great now, so healthy and happy,’ one woman said.

‘Oh wow. I can totally relate. What a positive influence you are, this is so good to see the mindset change!’ said a second.

Ms Moody encouraged young girls to build a healthy relationship with food and exercise that’s focused on growing stronger rather than shedding fat.

‘Start appreciating your body for all that it is, instead of what it’s not,’ she said.

What are some of Kacie’s top cleaning secrets?  

* Use a non-scratch sponge with Gumption or Bar Keepers Friend to clean soap scum from a shower screen with ease 

* Always use a squeegee to remove water and then ‘polish’ or dry the glass with a microfibre cloth for sparkling results 

* For sparkling windows use the $37 Sabco window cleaning kit from Bunnings that comes with a 12.5 litre bucket with a lid and handle. Pair it with a microfibre window washer, stainless steel squeegee and a microfibre cloth for the perfect finish 

* Dishwashing liquid and water works very well to clean windows 

* The #1 Kmart product for cleaning is the 2 piece pack of microfibre glass cleaning cloths – they are hidden in the car section

‘If your shower screens have hard water stains or built up soap scum, I would use a non-scratch sponge with either Gumption (which is a paste) or Bar Keepers Friend (which is a powder),’ she said in the video

‘Both of those scrub onto the screen and wash off – as long as the glass isn’t etched, it should come up pretty good.’

Gumption is priced at $5.40 and Bar Keepers Friend costs $8, with both available at Woolworths supermarkets. 

Kacie also uses these products to clean other areas in the bathroom, such as the sink and bathtub, as they work exceptionally well.

After applying and washing the products off with water, Kacie recommends using a squeegee to remove water and then ‘polish’ or dry the glass with a microfibre cloth.

Depending on how dirty the shower screen is, dishwashing liquid and a microfibre cloth also works well. 

Kacie said cleaning the shower or bathroom doesn’t need to be a complicated process, as it’s quite simple if the correct products are used. 

In another video Kacie also revealed she uses the $37 Sabco window cleaning kit from Bunnings Warehouse while working (pictured)

Channing Tatum lookalike Will Parfitt, 29, wows with his resemblance to the Hollywood heartthrob

channing tatum lookalike will parfitt 29 wows with his resemblance to the hollywood heartthrob

A male stripper has gained millions of followers on social media through his uncanny resemblance to Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum.

It’s a cookie-cutter example of life imitating art for Will Parfitt, a London-born performer living in Melbourne since 2015 whose career has mirrored the film Magic Mike in more ways than his physical similarity to its now 40-year-old star.

After moving Down Under, the 29-year-old removalist was scouted by a club promoter and began working for Magic Men, an agency specialising in bachelorette parties and private events – just like Tatum’s handyman character in the 2012 drama.

Stripping as ‘Channing’ in an ode to his famous doppelganger, Mr Parfitt has grown an audience of 252,000 Instagram followers and a whopping 2.4million on TikTok – where fans say they find him even more attractive than his handsome namesake.

‘Okay, I have decided I actually prefer you to Channing Tatum,’ a follower called Lisa wrote under a recent video.

‘Better looking than you know who!’ another agreed, while a third said: ‘Legit (sic) thought this was Channing for the first 10 seconds.’

‘So much better than the famous one everyone compares you to, who I won’t name,’ a fourth added.

Other responses include ‘you are definitely more attractive than Channing Tatum’, ‘you could be his twin’ and ‘you are the best looking man I’ve ever seen’.

A recent video of Mr Parfitt dressed as a policeman and twirling a set of handcuffs in one hand elicited particularly strong reactions.

The clip, which is captioned ‘going through a break up so your friends get you something to cheer you up’, drew thousands of comments with one woman writing: ‘I’m 46 and happily married but can we pretend I’m [going through] a break up?’

Another simply told Mr Parfitt to arrest her.

Many wondered why the performer – who is described as a ‘spunky, drop-dead gorgeous boy next door’ in his profile on Magic Men’s website – hasn’t gone ‘major viral’ online yet.

During peak wedding season, which runs from October to April in Australia, Mr Parfitt once performed up to 15 times each weekend – but that was before the COVID crisis shuttered venues, suspending shows and forcing stars online.

Closures have cost him almost $3,000 a week, the sum he would typically earn for just one weekend’s work.

But his ever-increasing social media profile is sure to provide him with a host of new opportunities as soon as Victoria’s second lockdown is lifted.
