"I lost 83 pounds!"

42 years old

"Let me start off by letting you know a little bit about myself. Before, I didn’t care about my health and fitness or bad eating habits, I just ate whatever whenever and didn’t give it a second thought on how it would affect me. Something was wrong with my health and I knew it. With much persistence from my family to get checked out, I went in for a checkup. Like the majority of people that are overweight I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Which made sense to me at the time and it explained my constant perspiring state and not to mention the fatigue.

The doctor said, “Either start working out and eating right, or start taking medication long term.” Obviously, I chose to do the right thing, the hard thing and began making life altering changes. The first step was mental preparation. Which, then led me to GENESIS HEALTH CLUB and signing up with a personal trainer named Zach Miller. He put me on a workout schedule and informed me about meal plan options to help me begin my weight loss journey. With his help, my dedication and hard work in 6 months I was 83 pounds lighter! I was working out 5 days a week and 4 of those days were with Zack Miller. Now it’s so much easier to tie my shoes! If you are at the point in your life where I was, you would understand how such simple tasks were difficult to accomplish.

It was extremely hard for me in the beginning and within the first two weeks of my new decision I started getting discouraged. With endless encouragement from Zach we took it one day at a time and I started seeing results. My day to day activities became easier to perform and my energy increased dramatically. My health was gradually improving and I just felt better overall. After a year of this new life style I decided to visit the doctor again and this time I had perfect results; the best health result in his office for that month!
Unfortunately Zach is no longer with Geneses and I’m training with a new personal trainer, Cameron Decker. He is awesome and great at helping me with my new goal of adding muscle mass.
This is the new me!

From size 40 to 30 waist!"
