WITNESS THE FITNESS
I have been a Certified Fitness Trainer for 10 years. In this time, I have seen many people succeed in achieving their goals and fitness journey. Unfortunately, I have seen those who have walked away from their fitness goals as well.
As bariatric (weight loss) surgery has become popular and more affordable, there are those who have chosen to go this route as part of their journey. The number one reason people choose surgery is because they don't believe they have the willpower and dedication to do it on their own; when in reality, it requires a greater amount of willpower and dedication. It is a complete lifestyle change. Not only does it affect daily diet, it causes the body to make drastic changes. Hair loss, malabsorption, loose and saggy skin, loss of proteins, reduced portions, dry skin, protruding teeth and many other side effects occur with weight loss surgery.
When I began training, I would take it very personal if a client didn't achieve their goals. It took me some time to realize that I can't do the work for you. I provide the knowledge and the tools, but the individual must put in the work.
As in everything we do, we must do it for ourselves! Life expectancy is greatly increased with a healthy lifestyle.
It is my pleasure to help those in need. It is even more pleasurable when I watch my clients succeed.
Everyone has the opportunity to feel better and look better. But, it is up to the individual to make it happen.
To all of those who have trusted me in helping with their fitness goals, I thank you all!
It has been an amazing journey, and I don't plan on quitting anytime soon!
Be safe, be healthy, be fit, and have FUN!

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. We have had some crazy weather the last month or so, but I am happy to see people out getting fresh air and exercise. Don't let the wind or the rising temperatures stop you. Fresh air and sunshine are not only for plant life. Get outside and get plenty of natural Vitamin D. However, be smart. Make sure you are using Sunscreen to block out the harmful rays! I hope to see you all on the streets this summer!
