My experience with Heather has been very fun, productive and inspiring. Heather has taught me many new things not only with working out but with living a better and healthier lifestyle. I have seen so much progress in my body and also in myself mentally. She is such a nice person,easy to work with and she makes me feel comfortable as well.
The “before” picture is just before I retired in late Dec 2008, and the week before I started coming to Sport Fit and changing my diet. At that time I weighed over 270 lbs, my blood pressure was above 150/90, my cholesterol was very high, and my knees and back hurt. My cardiologist said I was definitely heading for trouble, as did my family doctor.
The week after I retired I started coming to sport fit 3 days a week, taking it easy at first, per my doctor’s advice, but working up to an hour of aerobic exercise and light resistance training each day. I’ve been doing that for 5 ½ years and have only missed a dozen or so times due to weather, power outages, etc. I make working out a priority and do not let other than extreme circumstances prevent it.
By the end of the following October after I retired and started coming to Sport Fit I had lost 70 lbs, my blood pressure was 124/74, my cholesterol was in the low normal range and my knees and back no longer hurt; and I have kept the weight off and blood pressure and cholesterol at the low levels for over 4 ½ years. Also, both my cardiologist and family doctor say I’m in very good shape for a 66 year old.
The after picture is how I was at the end of October after coming to Sport Fit, and as I am now. It took me a little over 10 months to go from the “before” to the “after” picture, and associated blood pressures, cholesterol, etc., and I have kept the “after” results for 4 ½ years.
I owe this to working out at Sport Fit, and changing my diet and life style. Interestingly, I actually eat more now than before, but I eat more healthy such as fish, fruit , veggies, etc. I do let myself have what I want once a week, but only in moderation and only if I’m coming to Sport Fit the next day. That way I don’t feel deprived and have been able to stay on my diet for over 5 years.
So, all-in-all; this exercise and diet stuff really works!
