My name is Allison Wieder and I’m currently a student studying Graphic Design at The Art Institute of Indianapolis. I’m 19 years old planning to graduate in 2011 with a Bachelors degree. I enjoy staying busy with school, work, church and my family.
Before coming to Exercise Inc. I had gone down a path of an unhealthy habits and a lazy lifestyle. I was eating healthy, exercising regularly or energetic. I wasn’t being conscious of what I ate. The wait came on 5 lbs at a time. At 18 I should have been at a high point of my life just out of high school, but I felt slow, sloppy, and unprofessional. Looking at myself I knew something had to be done. Having tried other “diets” with no success, I was eager to try Exercise Inc’s program.
I work for Kim Berry of Captured Memories Photography. She had been training with Vee at Exercise Inc for about a year. She had seen great results with weight lose as well as muscle toning. Kim encouraged me to try it, telling me about how much she liked the accountability the trainer provides and the privacy of the workout. So one week I went with Kim to her appointment to see what it was like. I walked out with an appointment of my own for the next week.
I’ve been training with Vee now for 16 months. Up until now I’ve lost 50 pounds. Starting at a size 18 in jeans, I’m now in a 6. A year and a half ago you would have found me sitting on the couch watching tv, now you might see me running around playing nurf guns with the kids or taking a bike ride. I feel like I’m actually a kid again. I enjoy running around and being active rather than being the lazy slob. I believe the weight lose has even helped me in school and work. I’ve gained valuable confidence and feel like I look more professional.
Exercise Inc’s program has helped me change my lifestyle. I wouldn’t be here today without my great support system. I huge thanks to Kim for encouraging me to start! A big thank you to Vee for always believing in me and not letting me slide. I plan to keep training at Exercise Inc and continue the weight loss!
