“As far as personal training Energy Fitness is the only game in town”

Tracey, age 39

We caught up with Tracy for her post fitness assessment after 8 weeks (she traveled or was out with work a few times – we usually post test every 6 weeks) She is pleased that we help her with both the nutrition and fitness and is happy with her post fitness assessment.

After only 8 weeks

  • lost 6 lbs
  • 4.5 inches
  • almost 2.2% body fat
  • 13 push ups to a whopping 30. Go Tracey!
  • We still need to re-test her flexibility, and step test to measure her cardio fitness but I am sure those are great as well!

Tracey has a slight knee issue but we are able to modify exercises to still give her a great workout while progressing to her goal.

Greg Lord wanted help with his core and overall body strength to help his golf game and decrease aches and pains. What he didn’t say in the video that we wanted to share is: “I had to get over paying for a trainer, because there is no way that I could have come this far this fast trying to do it on my own”.

Greg also said… I like the gym/facility. it’s quaint. I like Tonya, she is a good trainer for my age. I like the folks I workout with. I had to “get over” paying for a trainer because their is no way I would have gotten this far so fast trying to do on my own. I am hitting gold ball 20 yards farther!

Ok this is very poor video and video editing. I was hoping for a much more polished end result but I think you can get through it.

I’m nearing the end of my weight-loss journey and realize that I’m just getting started. I have changed many of my eating habits but still have so much to tweak.

Take a look at this video if you can stand it.
