I know this sounds like a commercial but it is the truth. I am 42 yrs old and I am in the best shape of my life.I started putting weight on when I was about 28, the same time I started sitting behind a desk for work. Slowly over the years I got up to 250 pounds. I kept telling myself that this was just part of getting older and it happens to everyone but it got to a point that I was so uncomfortable that I knew I had to do something. I was having to see both a doctor and a chiropractor on a regular basis due to some pretty serious pains I was having in my neck and shoulder. Things were so bad I could only sleep a few hours a night and I was in constant pain. On top of all this all of my clothes were so tight on me that I was uncomfortable all day long. I did not believe that taking pills and getting shots from the doctor were the answer and after talking to both my doctor and chiropractor they both told me that they were clients of Exercise Inc and recommended that I give it a try.
I decided to give Exercise Inc a try a year ago and that is when I met my trainer Tracie Shearer. At the time I told Tracie that my main goal was to get my strength and flexibility back and stopping feeling so uncomfortable. Tracie asked me what my goal was for losing weight and I really did not want to commit to a particular weight because I just wanted to get in better shape. I felt that a good weight for me would be around 190 lbs and that if I was committed to my workouts the weight loss would come. Tracie and Kyle Morrison, one of the other trainers in Avon, encouraged me to read Body by Science and Primal Blueprint as they felt this would help me get a better understanding of how to accomplish my goals. While I have changed my eating habits there is not a doubt in my mind that the main driver of getting me to where I am today has been following Tracie's guidance during my weekly workouts. I so look forward to working out every week that I have only missed when I have been out of town. Who honestly can say that they do not have time to workout 20 minutes a week?
At this point I have surpassed all of my goals. I am below 190 lbs, I sleep great, and I feel better than I have in the last 20 years. The best thing as far as I am concerned is that I can keep up with my kids when we are playing and I feel like I have new shot at enjoying life. While I still see my doctor and chiropractor now it is not because I am in pain it is just for getting check ups and they are both amazed at what a change I have been through in the last year. Hardly a day goes by that someone does not ask me how I have changed so much and I tell them all to check out Exercise Inc.
