In February I decided that I needed to make a change. I felt terrible about myself, disgusted about how much weight I had gained over the years, and terrified about how unhealthy I was. I was very overweight, on blood pressure medicine and had been a smoker for many years. My best friend had asked me to be her maid of honor in her wedding in September and I knew that I wanted to look and feel better for her big day.
I took the plunge and decided that I was going to get healthier for myself so that I could be around for my daughter and her children for a long time. I met with Travis at PNF for a personal training session and was mortified when I weighed in at 193 pounds with a body fat percentage of 34.5 percent (overweight). I could barely do the fitness tests to get started on the first day. I knew that this is what I needed to get healthier, so I signed up to do the introductory three sessions and decided to quit smoking.
I decided to sign up for the 12 sessions with nutrition plan since my diet was terrible. I relearned how to eat healthy, check my portion control and see what my body needed every day. I worked with Travis twice a week and followed his nutrition plan. Travis was amazing and never made me feel like I wasn't doing enough. He worked with me and made sure I was pushing myself enough, but not too much.
Fast forward to September (the wedding) I had lost 35 pounds and down to 23 percent body fat! I felt amazing, better than I had since before my daughter was born nine years prior! I felt so great and didn’t want to stop and risk falling back into bad habits. I kept going to PNF to work with Travis and started the outdoor boot camp which I did two rounds of because I loved it so much. I work out five to six days per week now doing videos at home along with at least one session per week with Travis.
I am so glad that I decided to pick up the phone and call PNF in February. I now love working out, the harder the program the better! Since February I have lost almost 40 pounds, 22 inches and am at a 20.6 percent body fat. In almost one year I have changed physically and mentally. I am so much stronger than I thought I could ever be. Thank you Travis and PNF for helping me achieve my goals and surpass what I thought was impossible!
