's Success Story

I grew up in Springfield MA after my family traveled here from Novokuznetsk, Siberia. Went to public school and had a very stressful experience. I hated gym class and my family never taught me to exercise but I did go on walks around my neighborhood. Grew up and got married, only walked and hiked for exercise here and there and had gotten gym memberships that I didn't end up using. Then I got a divorce and at the age of 24 I decided to get my life together and a huge part of that was to transform my body to be healthy and strong.

I started working with a personal trainer and realized how out of shape I was. I was not overweight but my body fat percent was high because my muscles were quite underdeveloped. I could not do a push up or pull up and my squat form was terrible and thus I was putting undue stress on my knees. It took a while but my body adjusted to the new stress being put on it and began to develop beautifully once I learned how to use my muscles correctly and safely. I am so glad I got training because it really did change my life and I finally became comfortable lifting weights at the gym because I knew what I was doing. First I had to straighten out my imbalances and posture and then I was able to start lifting heavier weight effectively. It's a life style change that occurs and you learn what your body needs to do to get the results you have always wanted. Eating well and exercising will make you feel fantastic. How much is your health worth to you?
