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!

Another year is in full swing. As I close another chapter in my life, I am excited for what 2015 has in store for me. It is always encouraging to see the number of people in the gym at the beginning of the year. I believe I have seen more people in the weight room than I have in the years past. And, whether or not they stick with their new year's resolutions; the thought was there. I truly believe that people are more aware of the need to become and stay fit.
This year brings me a lot of new hope. This spring I will run my 5th and final Warrior Dash. I will then begin training for either the Spartan Race or the Tough Mudder.
I have also begun my training for the Senior Olympics. Even though I can not try out until age 50; I do not want to wait until then to begin my training. I am really excited for that day to arrive.
I am better and strong than I have ever been. I am excited for what the new year has in store for me, and I would love to hear your successes as well.
It always makes me smile to see how many hits I get on my website.
If there is ever anything I can help anyone of you with; please don't hesitate to contact me!
Have a terrific 2015!
