Melissa's Success Story

My story is a simple one. I happened to meet Travis through the military. I was going through a pretty hard time, and had let my health slip. I had gained over 20 pounds, and was very unhappy with the way I looked and felt. Not surprising, the result was that I ended up failing my physical fitness assessment. I was already pretty down on myself, and was suffering from an injury, and just wanted to give up. Travis didn't let me do that. This was the first time I had met someone that genuinely showed interest in trying to change my attitude, behaviors, and wanted to see me succeed. He went out of his way to show me workouts I could do, despite my injuries. And I remember hating working out so much, but the one thing that made my day was hearing him say, "I was watching and you did a really good job. You gave it your all." After getting back into shape, I was still self conscious about my weight, but I was able to pass the next physical fitness test. I ended up leaving my command shortly after, but Travis still made an effort to check up on me. He would write me from overseas and give me health advice and nutritional advice to keep me going. Because Travis didn't give up on me, I knew I couldn't give up on myself. I continued my journey to get in shape. I ordered replacement shakes off of his website, and continued to go to the gym on a regular basis, and he made sure to check in on me periodically to make sure I was doing everything the right way. A year and a half later, almost 40 ibs down, and with my lupus now in remission due to my major health and fitness changes, I can look back and thank Travis for everything he has done. If it wasn't for him, I would have just given up, and I would still be unhappy today. But it is the opposite. This lifestyle change has brought me good health, confidence, and a better attitude. Thank you again Travis!!!! Without you, this would have never happened!
