Don lost 60 lbs in just six months!

What motivated you to make a change?

All of the negative things that go along with being overweight - poor appearance, my clothes don’t fit, could not enjoy an active lifestyle, etc.

When did you start noticing results and how did you track your results?

Two to three weeks into the Fit Club program is when I started noticing results. Weekly weigh-ins is how I tracked my results.

What changes did you make?

I took advantage of Nutrition Coaching and got serious about it. I tracked all my food using an online food tracker.

How does it feel to be more physically fit and what are some of your achievements?

It feels great! I can now hike and bike like I could many years ago!

What are some tips you would give someone trying to lose weight?

  1. Use an online food tracker to track your food.
  2. Find exercises and activities that you enjoy.
  3. Work with a personal trainer and nutrition coach.

What is your current nutrition plan and what nutrition plan works best for you?

I eat small portions that are healthy and taste good. I feel okay to splurge now and then as long as I am focused on the long term plan.

What is your current fitness plan and what fitness plan works best for your goals?

Doing activities that I enjoy - hiking and biking, classes at The Fitness Factory that focus on certain muscle groups including ARM-Sanity and LEG-Sanity. The best plan for me is to do fitness activities that I enjoy and look forward to and activities that will reduce the risk of injury.
