Fitness has always been a part of my life; I graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science and was a competitive swimmer for 16 years before turning my focus to Personal Training and Corporate Wellness. I've always had the knowledge of what I was supposed to do to look and feel my best, however I, just like most people, was great at making excuses for myself. When I started training with Jeremy in November of 2013, I was the heaviest I had ever been, and was coincidentally training for my wedding (set for June 2014). I was 27% body fat and weighed 167 lbs. I'm 5'8", so I had the benefit of using my height to hide my excess weight (I also had a tendency of convincing myself that I could eat the same at 27 that I did at 18 with little repercussions... boy was I wrong!). Jeremy immediately provided me with the 2 main elements I was missing in my self training - he held me accountable, and he made fitness fun again. With WEEKLY weigh-ins, daily food diary check-ins, and an inspiring weekly fitness regime, Jeremy completely transformed my mind set and got me back on track. I have an addictive personality, therefore I am an "all or nothing" person. Jeremy knew exactly how to use that to our advantage - he provided me with a strict daily diet, a variety of homework workout options that I could tailor based on how I was feeling that day (so there was no excuse to skip a workout), and made our sessions something that I was always excited for. Almost 10 months later, I maintain between 152-15 5lbs and around 15-16% body fat, and feel AMAZING. Although I am not as perfect with my diet now as I was going into my wedding in June, and I still have goals of leaning out a little more, I utilize Jeremy's founding fundamentals to maintain my loss. Because of Jeremy, I have learned just how sensitive my body can be to specific food groups, how to eat in a non-controlled environment (ex: eating out), how to make compromises for cheat-foods that won't kill my stomach the next day, and most importantly, how to have fun with goals.
Thank you, Jeremy! You've been a LIFESAVER!
