Sherria’s Transformation Journey
What is your name, age and profession?
Hi, my name is Sherria Ayuandini, and I am 42 years old. I am currently working as the Director, Evaluation
Strategy, and Implementation.
What made you sign up for the TSquared Lab Program?
I have always been slim; I didn't really want to lose weight, but I do want to do better at certain things I
love, like rock climbing, but I have always felt stuck at a low level, so I wanted to join TSquared Lab to be
able to gain more
strength to be able to do better at rock climbing.
"With Afshan's training I have been able to do 5 chin ups in a row,
this is really helpful for my climbing and has been my proudest achievement till date."
What were some of the main challenges that you faced related to health and fitness before joining
the TSquared Lab?
I felt that when I did things on my own, I did them the wrong way, which led to certain injuries. In order
to recover from those injuries and get the right training to gain strength, I joined the TSquared Lab.
What changes have you seen since you have joined TSquared Lab?
Since I have been training with Afshan, I have noticed that I have grown significantly stronger, from
normal routine tasks like carrying groceries to going to an upper level in rock climbing. I have felt
lighter, and I am able to carry my body weight in a more confident manner.
What is your proudest achievement here at TSquared Lab?
When I first started training, I told my coach Afshan that if I was able to do 1 chin up, I would be really
happy, and with her training and guidance, I have been able to do 5 chin ups in a row. This is really helpful
for my climbing as well, so it is my proudest achievement to date.
How did you recover from your injury?
I had a shoulder injury because, while rock climbing, I was only using my shoulder muscles, and because I
overused my shoulder muscles, I injured my right shoulder. Now, after a few months of training with Afshan and
doing some physiotherapy, I have been able to use other muscles as well, and I am now able to climb up safely
"I am able to work on the right muscle in the right way."
What is it like to work out at TSquared Lab?
I really like working out at TSquared Lab, and I try to move out of my comfort zone when Afshan is around
because I know that if I go wrong somewhere, she is there to help and guide me.
How would you describe the program that your coach has designed for you?
It's very helpful with what I want to achieve, which is to get better at climbing. Afshan understood my
goal and designed a set of exercises. I might not know the reason behind the exercise, but she explains it
to me in detail, and I am able to work on the right muscle in the right way. I also understand the
difference in climbing after my training.
What were the changes that you noticed in your lifestyle? Is it simple to follow, and is it worth it?
Making changes in your lifestyle is totally worth it; it has now become a habit, and once it becomes a habit,
it’s a lot easier. I have even changed my
diet, so I feel your diet and your exercise go hand in hand for better results.
"Since the time I have been training with Afshan , I have noticed
that I have grown significantly stronger."
How long was it before you could see changes in your body after joining TSquared Lab?
In the first few months with Afshan, we went through rehab to be able to recover from my shoulder
injury, and I am glad that Afshan did not rush, and we gave the injury some time to heal. Once I
felt better, we started doing strength training, and within 3 months, I was able to see changes in the way
that I am able to do things in a better way than I was before.
What would you tell someone who is unsure about joining TSquared Lab?
For someone who is unsure about joining TSquared Lab, I would just say that it's one step at a time.
Working out at TSquared Lab makes me feel motivated, and I am also able to get the right guidance and
training from the professionals here throughout my fitness journey.
Any final words for your coach?
Thank you so much for everything. I am looking forward to more.
