Success Stories. YOU Can Do It Too.
Updated: Sep 9, 2022
So while I generally share posts on HOW you can improve yourself, this post will be about some successes my clients have recently had. Essentially, I want to share WHAT is possible if you put your mind and effort into it.
The first client I want to share their success story is Shaman. When he came to me, he was 389 pounds. He is now down to 324 and 24 pounds away from his weight goal. He has a big frame, so 300 will be perfect for him. So how did he do it? There is no secret strategy to his success. He simply started working out, doing cardio and making minor changes to his diet. That included meal prepping and doing things like cutting out his “addiction” with “pop or soda.” As I suggested diet advice, I told him I expected 90% compliance. No one will be perfect with diet and training, but close is close enough. I told him to have a cheat meal once a week that can include ANYTHING he wants. Pancakes, go for it. Beer and wings, go for it. Pizza is fine as well. The thing is knowing you are having those things on say Friday, so stick with your program on the days leading up to it, and then following it. He is simply making better choices!
The second client I will discuss is Mattie. She came to me for a very specific reason. She is getting married in a few weeks (She has been coming since January), so came to me to help her look her best for her wedding day. She has had a literal transformation. Last weekend she had her last dress fitting, and was so pleased with the results. The side effect of her training is that she is noticeably stronger and has more muscle. She is involved in a volleyball league and stated that even the men are impressed that she can throw the ball back a long distance when it goes out of bounds. Becoming strong and fit can change so many aspects of your life.
The last person I will discuss is named Tony. Tony met me at 489 pounds. For Tony, a lifestyle change was needed to literally SAVE his life. In several months, Tony has dropped 34 pounds. As with Shaman, he has made some simple changes including meal prepping. What is so amazing about his progress, is that he is already more mobile and feels the effects of the routine. He says he has more energy and his joints don’t hurt as much as they once did. His will be a long journey, but you can see that the progress he is making is keeping him on track. Progress is progress!
My friends, live in the now. If you are on a journey, whether it be fitness, spiritual, or other, take pride in your progress. As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day, but every small step is still progress. If you have a setback, don’t sweat it. Simply get back on the horse and move ahead. Small changes make for major gains!
