Can I Get in Shape???

Something I was talking with one of my clients, Michelle Li, today was that you have to have patience because getting in shape takes a lot less time than it does to get out of shape. You may have not worked out for years and possibly gained 10-20-30 pounds, but the good news is, it will take less than half that time to get in to the shape you want.

Take Bo Dean for example, he was 350 pounds, had high blood pressure and Type II Diabetes when he came to me. It took him 10-20 years to get to that unfortunate stage of his life. We have been working together for a little over a year and now he is at a fitness level he has never been in his entire life. Not to mention, his blood pressure is great and he doesn't take anymore medicine for diabetes because he no longer has it.

Take Parker Stevens for example, he came to me with an injury that caused him to have several surgeries to repair the damage. You would think he would never be the same. Well, I have worked with him to a stage where his knee feels better than it ever has in his life. He has been able to bike a 50 mile race and is able to not only run 5-10k's, but a 1/2 marathon.

These are just a few examples of the many clients who are getting results with me, but the point of the story is that if you feel like you are at a point in your life where there is no turning back or that you will never ever get in the shape you wish you could....YOU ARE WRONG!!!

Depending on what your situation is, it could take 6 months to a year to completely change your life around. Don't hesitate for a second or ever think you are at the point of no return. That is rubbish and I can prove it to you!

If you want to get a taste of what it is like to get on the road to a better you, contact me and I will give you a free fitness consultation. There is no obligation to buy personal training, but it is important to find out where you are with your fitness and where you can go.

Best Wishes and Happy Training!

Wilmington Downtown Rotary Club

As a fellow Rotarian, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Downtown Rotary Club yesterday. It was so amazing to share fitness tips for others to living a better heart healthy life. One of my amazing clients, Joe Owen, is a member at the downtown Rotary Club and had invited me to be the guest speaker. It was such an honor! Bo Dean, another wonderful client and one of my best friends ended the session with such an inspirational story of his success through this journey.

When preparing my speech, it was even more shocking to me to come across some of the scary statistics our world has when it comes to cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Did you know that more than 2200 people in America die every single day of CVD? That is 1 death every 39 seconds. On top of that, 1 out of every 2.9 people die from CVD.

It is crazy to know this is the world we live in, but all it takes is baby steps to help you live a healthier life. There are 168 hours in a week, do you think you can find three hours to exercise? Most of us work 8+ hours a day to make our jobs successful, why can't we take three hours a week to make our health successful.

It doesn't take much, just small changes to our exercise and our nutrition to make a huge difference down the road. Don't try to do it all at once. You can make small changes ever so often and before too long, big changes will occur.

Here are some of the photos from the Rotary meeting...
