I want everyone to know that even personal trainers need some encouragement and insight to achieve their own goals. For me it started when I reached the weight of 227 lbs and I knew that at 5’11” that weight would cause (and was already causing) joint pain at the age of 26. That was when I set my goal weight to 205 lbs.

I honestly have never been one to shy away from different workout programs, so in order to reach that goal I had no problems increasing intensities or sessions in my workouts, changing my workouts entirely, adding new exercises…etc.

Between October 2013 to March 2014 I was able to lose 20 lbs but was struggling INCREDIBLY with the last few that would help me achieve my goal. I felt that when it came to my workouts, I could not give any more than I had. I have done workouts that required 3 hours of my day, 4-5 days per week (if not every day). I had completed strength programs, metabolic conditioning programs, cardio programs, strength-cardio programs, two-a-day programs, etc…the list can go on and on. However, the ONE aspect I would hold back on was my nutrition and eating habits.

Working at One-to-1 Fitness allowed me to learn not only the importance, but the necessity or eating right and balanced. After working there for a year I had the privilege to see my coworker Whitney push relentlessly through multiple challenges (physically and mentally) in order to pursue her goals! In May I asked Whitney for her help because I knew that she would be one person that would NOT accept any of my excuses and would also be supportive and enthusiastic for me during my own process. Mid-June I applied the nutrition program that Whitney designed for me at the same time that I started a new 6-week workout program, and the combination of both not only got me to my goal, but helped supersede it. In those 6 weeks I was able to shed 17 lbs (instead of just 7), 14 of them being body fat. My waist circumference also decreased by 10 cm, as well as some other decreases in circumference at my chest and legs. The best part is that at 190lbs I did not lose any strength and was in fact able to make some new gains!
As a personal trainer, I don’t get tired of expressing what a humbling experience and privilege it has been so far to absorb the knowledge and experience from the team at One-to-1 Fitness on a daily basis. As a client, I can say that they are true coaches and sincerely want the best for each client that walks in the front doors of the facility. It is because of this group that I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending friends and family to get trained by any one of my colleagues.
