specializing in clients ages 12 to 18

 Mike is a senior at St. Rita High School. He has lost 75 pounds over the last year and it has completely changed his life. He understands the struggles of being overweight and has the unique ability to relate to clients going through the same problems with compassion and commitment.

 

Mike's story

Loosing 75 pounds was not an easy thing to do, but the result a year later has changed my life.  I was not a confident person, blaming everyone for not losing the weight.  Then I found an awesome trainer that got me started on the journey.   This trainer pushed me, knowing that I could do the work, I just needed the confidence.  Weight loss was a slow journey.  There were times I wanted to give up.  But my trainer didn’t give up on me.  I want to help others and help them reach their goals.
