Allow me to Testify

Marvin's Success Story

Three years ago, I took a look in the mirror and didn’t like what I saw. My face was huge and round, I had man breasts, and my belly was big. I even earned the name “Gummy Bear” from my girlfriend at the time. I weighed 234 pounds. I signed up for personal training sessions with Absolute Fitness PT. It was an absolute struggle. I couldn’t run for more than two minutes at a time, let alone finish a mile. I threw up every other work out. Though I gave my all during workouts, I was inconsistent. I would miss workouts after spending late nights in clubs. My diet was terrible. I ate fast food at least seven times a week and I drank alcoholic beverages five days a week. Despite my lack of focus and inconsistency, my trainer, Jennifer Jones, never gave up on me. She was persistent in reminding me that I had goals. After two years, I had only lost nine pounds.
Beginning in July 2012, I began a fitness regimen that included 3 days of weight training and 2 days of boot camp. I also had to keep a 2,400 calorie diet. I also had to bring my alcohol consumption to 2 glasses a week and quit eating fast food. It was tough in the beginning but with consistency and hard work, I began to see changes. I am proud to say, that as of December 2012, I weigh 196 pounds. I lost 5 inches off my waist. I can now run a mile and a half in 13 minutes. The biggest news, I was able to cure my sleep apnea. I sleep like a baby now.
If I didn’t have my health scare, who knows what would’ve happened. If Jennifer gave up on me, who knows what would’ve happened. Her passion, consistency, and persistence became my passion, consistency, and persistence. I love living the #AbsoluteFitLife.
*I once weighed 234 pounds and was diagnosed with sleep apnea. With Jennifer Jones expertise, passion, consistency, and persistence, I developed the will to change my life.
