Marine Corps Fit Life

Saundra's Success Story

This is not your traditional weight loss story. I am in the Marine Corps and it is a constant competition to stay in shape, the standards of being “fit” are constantly changing. I wanted to increase my muscle mass rather than lose weight. Before Herve’s workout plan I had hit a plateau I didn’t know what to do I wasn’t getting stronger. I started Herve’s work out plan 5 months ago. In the first 2 months I had seen so much improvement! My upper body strength had increased by over 20 lbs! My legs and abs began to get firmer and I was seeing the definition in my arms, I was so excited. One of my biggest goals was pull ups, if anybody is familiar with the military we have a physical fitness test, which they just changed, so now females have to do 8 pull ups to get a perfect score. At the beginning of Herve’s workout I barely could do 1! Now I am proud to say I can do 7. I am still working out every day to maintain my weight standards and physical fitness and it is a constant fight to stay motivated but I did and so can you!
