's Success Story

My name is John and believe it or not but I have only been working out for seven months. Before working out people never thought of me as out of shape and I think it’s due to my height because I’m 6’2”. But ever since my brother (who is younger than me) started an intense workout regiment my family has always been trying telling me to workout as well. Now I have never worked out in a gym in my entire life, the closest thing to working out for me was Physical Education in high school and that was a long time ago. Since then my weight has fluctuated from 180 lbs to a whopping 225!
I knew action had to be done so I decided to give in and finally join a gym; problem is I had no idea how to even start. Then in comes my trainer Larissa who came to my rescue. Not only did she explain to me about a balanced work out routine and teach me how to use various exercise machines, but from time to time she would hand me some insightful articles that pertain to physical fitness. Some of the articles include the importance of healthy eating which means no fast food and how important it is to take your daily vitamins. Larissa is amazing because she is helped me physically and mentally.
After working with Larissa for seven months I have lost a total of 20 lbs and I have improved in many areas. Working with her helped improved my energy level, posture, strength, eating habit and more. I’m so glad that my posture improved because I had a terrible habit of slouching. I still remember Larissa telling me to straighten out those shoulders because I’m a bodybuilder now and bodybuilders have perfect posture. I would always laugh whenever she says that which is why it’s so fun to work with her. She has taught me a lot and I am glad that I still continue to work with her because I know that with her guidance I can reach my goal of healthy living.
