Brian (Myself)'s Success Story
If you truly want something out of life and you commit yourself to it, you can achieve anything!
I was able to change so much of my life in 12 weeks that I am personally in awe of how much can be done in such a short period of time. My body went through an incredible metamorphosis! I lost about 28 pounds of fat and gained about 9 pounds of muscle. I dropped my bodyfat percentage from 19.5 down to around 6. Not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined such results when I entered the Body For Life Transformation contest. There were times that I would look in the mirror and not even recognize myself! I had no idea that body was hiding out under all that fat!
I became more and more motivated with each passing week. Fat was melting away and new muscles were showing through. The transformation I was making added fuel to the fire burning within me. The fire was burning with desire, pushing me toward my 12-week goals. I needed to complete this challenge. I had a clear picture in my mind of what I wanted my body to look like. I wanted to succeed at transforming my body into the body I had always dreamed of having.
As the weeks passed I realized that my body wasn’t the only thing that was changing. My whole way of life had changed. I used to feel like I never had any time. I would come home from working all day or attending class and just be so beat. I would blob down on the couch in front of the TV and accomplish nothing! Now I have a ton of energy! I am also more focused, organized and self-confident! All of which has given me the ability to do more with my life – I truly feel as though I can accomplish anything if I commit myself to it! What a complete change in the right direction it was for me!
When I received the phone call from Porter Freeman telling me I had won my category in the 4-week sprint of the Body For Life Transformation Challenge, the fire within me turned into a blazing inferno! I new I was succeeding at fulfilling my dream. What an unbelievable feeling to be recognized by existing transformation champions and fitness professionals for the improvements I had made. There was no doubt in my mind that I had found the right path. I knew I would never return to my old ways...and I was right!
Since that transformation I have maintained my passion for health and fitness by compiling numerous certifications and years of education in the health and fitness field. My transformation occurred 13 years ago and I have been spending everyday since then sharing my knowledge and passion with others. And I hope to continue to do so for many more years to come.
