Michael's Success Story

I had been trying to lose weight and get in shape for years and I had been participating in different training programs on and off for several years with limited and disappointing results. I had met Joseph at several weekend workouts and was highly impressed with his professionalism, optimism and ability to encourage a high level of performance. I was most pleased when the opportunity arose to train with Joseph.

Once I started training regularly with Joseph, I began to see results and my optimism for real change grew.( It helped that I also joined Weight Watchers about that time).

At any rate, from November 2012 through May 2013 I lost 32 lbs and went from 15.8% BF to 9.7%. (I am 57 years old.)

I recently attended a soccer camp for adults without injury and I went on a hiking trip with my wife for 8 days. We hiked over 10 miles a day up and down in the alps. Because we were in such good shape , we had one of the best adventures of our lives.

Finally, my wife was so impressed with my progress that she is now driving from DC to workout with Joseph and she too has nothing but positive things to say about his tremendous skill as a coach and health mentor. As an aside, my wife was really nervous about weight training because she had been injured in the past when trainers had pushed for heavy weights or had failed to be sure the exercises were being done in a safe manner for someone who is 5'1" and 103 lbs. It takes a truly special coach to be able to modify directions to meet the needs of men and women, large and small, fit and unfit!

In summary, I don't write many testimonials but I had to say something since this experience has been truly life changing and it would not have been possible without Joseph.
