Life Changing Birthday!

Jessica's Success Story

I met Mark Allison on my birthday, November 30th 2010. I signed up for a boot camp class and he called me to see if I was interested in personal training sessions. I had been trying to get into better shape and thought I’d hear what he had to say. I knew I had gained a little weight in the last few years, but I still thought I was healthy and in good shape. My goal at the time was just to fit into my clothes a little more comfortably. At that time I was 172 lbs, had 37% body fat and was wearing a size 14.
Less than a year later my whole life changed. It’s amazing what the human body can do when you put your mind to it. I trained with Mark 4 times a week for 6 months. Setting monthly attainable goals, helped keep me motivated and focused. I learned its more than just working out. It’s about changing your entire lifestyle from eating habits to personal activities. At the end of those 6 months I was a new person, mentally and physically. I spent last summer overseas with my husband and during that time Mark got promoted, which unfortunately meant he could no longer train me. When I came home he set me up with Amy.
I have spent the last year training with Amy on and off while I have been in town. She pushes me to set and achieve new goals to keep me motivated. I have seen amazing results, hitting each goal and exceeding any expectation I ever had for myself! Last month I competed in my first Triathlon (sprint) and came in 3rd for my age division- now that’s something I never thought I could do a year and a half ago! I am now 148lbs, 25.5% body fat and comfortably wearing a size 4! I truly have never felt better or healthier in my whole life! I know now that I can do anything I want if I put my mind to it. Mark, Amy and the entire 24 Hour staff have helped me turn my entire life around into a new, healthier and happier me!
