I'm living proof that consistency and willpower will get you there.

The picture on the left is me at almost 260 lbs. I was going through some tough times and just completely let myself go. Believe it or not I was still making my living as a personal trainer but was not practicing what I was preaching to my clients. I have felt like you, like I was too far gone to make a change and it was overwhelmingly daunting. One day, after a routine doctors physical I was told I had to go on blood pressure and cholesterol medication and that was it for me. I started tracking my food and applying all the exercise techniques I had learned over all the years. Yes, it was intimidating at first and I had to do it all on my own. I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to stay in your current state. As you can see in the pictures, I have been there, so I understand where you might be coming from - and I will guide you all the way through your fitness journey. Please reach out and let’s get started!
