Lousia's Success Story
I first met Willie in 2007 when I transferred to new command while serving in the US Navy. I figured out soon that the command I was part of did not play when it came to the weight and Physical Fitness Standard Scores. I set up a consultation with Willie and I had no idea that I had gotten as big as I was then - 5'4", weighing 198 with a body fat percentage of 40%! I remember I just sat there and cried and realized I had to do something if I wanted to stay in the Navy. He looked at me and said “now that you got that out of your system we got some work to do.” I went from not being unable to run 5 minutes without stopping to getting to a 3 mile run. I did exactly what he said and lost 60 pounds in less than a year. He has been a great trainer always friendly, outgoing, motivating and understanding and during this time he didn't take any of my excuses that I gave him when I was being lazy of thought I couldn't do any more. With his motivation and expertise along with my determination I honestly don't think I would have passed any of my PFA's. I am happy to say I was able to retire from the Navy this year without any failures for my Physical Fitness Assessments and for that I have Willie Tate to be thankful for. Everything he has taught stays with me, no more quick fix diets pills, powders just eating right and working out.
