A story of one of my most successful in home personal training clients
A Brooklyn man by the name of "John" was revitalized through my in home personal training in just 4 months. For the purpose of giving him privacy while I tell this amazing story - I'll refer to him as John. John, 31 years old came into his first session with no life, no energy and through his slow stride it seemed like walking itself was cumbersome. He had been overweight for a number of years, and I had almost, but given up on life.
John was referred to me by one of my previous clients Cindy who lose 15 pounds off her 5" 2' now 117 pound frame. Losing that much weight was a huge deal for her, because she was a realtor and needed to look her best. Cindy met John when he was trying to sell his house. She looked at his financial situation, and quickly noticed that he could easily keep the house.
For all those outside of Brooklyn, having a house here in BK is a huge deal. She felt he wasn't necessarily in a bad position that required selling it, but rather just down on life. Cindy told him about her weight loss experience with Joey and 1 on 1 Fitness and Wellness.
John before his Weight Loss
John came in for his first session walking slow, and looking lifeless. If you were in the room you'd think this man was 75 years old. As a matter of fact his functional age and body age were above 70. He spoke quietly, and so softly that it was difficult to hear. He said he was disgusted with looking at himself in the mirror every morning.
He said he was just 31, and already had a handful of prescription medications to take for his high cholesterol, high blood pressure, high blood sugar and irritable bowel syndrome. Throughout our first few sessions he opened up a little bit more. When he started losing weight it was almost like his personality changed.
For his privacy I've agreed to withhold his amazing before & after weight loss pictures.
John after losing weight loss - 30 pounds later
A short 4 months later - it was John's last session with me. A new man had been born with the walk of a functioning human being. John's weight loss results were striking with over 30 pounds of fat lost. He also gained 6.5 pounds of muscle. He came into that last session with limitless energy, and spoke confidently.
I was in complete tears saying by to this man, but I realize now why I do what I do. Hopefully by reading this blog post you can understand why I fight so hard for what I stand for, and why I owe it to myself to raise my standard. There are more people just like John throughout Brooklyn, and I'm determined create more weight loss transformations with them.
