Meet Josh and his amazing transformation!

Meet Josh and be inspired:

My weight loss journey started in April of 2016 after I went through a difficult point in my life. I wasn't happy the way I was and it was time to redefine myself. Thus started my weight loss journey. I asked a coworker and friend who happened to be a P.E. teacher for some help. He gave me a run through on a weight lifting routine and diet change. I cut carbs dramatically switched to high protein diet, worked out 30 minutes 3 times a week and started walking 3 hours a day. I gravitated toward long walks. I had noticed some weight loss by mid May, I had lost around 30lbs. My sister had been doing group training with Jen and asked if I could join. Jen was happy to take me as a client and I started going for an hour on Saturdays to group sessions. Jen started training me and teaching me the proper ways to lift and exercise. I took that knowledge to my gym 3 times a week continued to walk for 3 hours and Saturday personal training with Jen. I also followed the diet change to eat healthy and lose weight.

Personal training with Jen was the main factor in weight loss and muscle gain.  Jen taught me new exercises and knew when to push me to lift more. I needed her constant push to work harder. When I would hit a wall Jen would have me change my food intake to meet my body's needs. All the while I was gaining muscle and started to lift more. Daily food tracking to hit my proper protein and carb intake needs helped dramatically with energy increase.

Fast forward to the end of November I had lost 80lbs. Jen said I needed more personal training days to push past the point where I was ( I had been stuck there for some time. Her unlimited classes were what I needed. I jumped on board for December. Making 3 to 4 sessions a week the weight started shedding and muscle gain was more and more noticeable. I am in my second month of multiple training sessions making 4 to 5 a week now. I have lost 90lbs in total. I can lift much more than I ever thought I would when I started training with Jen. I have gone from a pants size of 50 down to 38 waist - skinny jeans! I have gone from a 3XL shirt to a large/XL. I feel fantastic. I love my life. I have redefined and rediscovered myself. I have learned there is no such thing as get fit and quit, it is a daily lifetime commitment to constantly push yourself to become better. In close I have discovered my passion - fitness and I hope to one day in the not so distant future give to others what Jen has given me, a passion for fitness.
