Stumbling into my 30's

Submitted by: Russell Wynter

Mike's Success Story

I have always been thin and relatively active, however as I stumbled into my 30’s and the majority of my activity has given way to computer work, the pounds started to mount quickly. I come from an obese family and knew I was on borrowed time. Now, I'm a motivated person when I commit to something, but with health and fitness, that commitment has always taken a back seat to “other” commitments.

Knowing that I wanted to make a health change and that I have a habit of losing focus, based on previously failed attempts, this time I decided to enlist the help of a professional. Enter Russell at Fitness First. Bottom line, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve the results I have to date without him. Period. Of course the luxury of a personal trainer does sometime seem a bit opulent, but in all actuality it’s just as valuable as any other education you would pay for including college, cooking classes, or self defense. It’s all about learning and accountability.

Honestly my journey really hasn’t been that hard, just consistent. 3 one hour sessions a week and less crappy food. Even on the days I just didn't feel like going, the knowing that I had an appointment got me there and through the workout. What's an hour, really?

A big thanks to Russell at Fitness First, I owe him big time!
