I started out my weight loss journey many years ago. Unfortunatley, I was all about the instant gratification. I did the low carb, the no carb, Weight Watchers, every other diet on TV, every diet pill under the sun, and even stopped eating for long periods at a time. Was I able to lose weight? Yes, I was. Did I lose some of my hair? Yes, I did. Did the weight come right back on when I started eating normal? Yes, it did. At this point I was back to square one, only this time with less hair, and a less healthy body. I did this several times over before I realized that it was a never ending battle. I was left with the choice: Live the rest of my life not being able to enjoy eating like a normal person and hating my body, and sleeping fully clothed, or get real and work hard to be the person I wanted to be. I was always the person with the pretty face, but a body I was ashamed of. It didn’t matter if I was 240 pounds, or 140 pounds, I was never happy with the way I looked. One day I realized that I wasn’t getting any younger. I had never experienced being the total package that included the nice body. I wasn’t going to let life pass me by without having the chance to experience that. I knew that every day that passed by my chances of getting into shape were less and less. The older that I was, the harder it would be. I had this discussion with a co-worker and she told me about the trainer that she used. I was so very out of shape, and afraid to show that out in public, but I was so desperate for a change that I decided to try it. I went for my first visit the very next day. I immediately knew I had made the right choice. I was greeted by a gentleman who made me feel at home right away. Joel knew right after hearing a little bit about me how much I had struggled and he assured me that if I was willing to give it my all and change my life I would get the results I needed. He didn’t let me down. It was best example of motivation with a smile I have ever seen. He was able to make me push myself to the limit for myself, not just because he was standing there. The rest of the clients all help make sure you are going as hard as you can, and you are always greeted with a smile. I look forward to seeing each of them on a regular basis, and watching them progress and reach their goals right along with me. I have now lost 28 pounds, my endurance has quadrupled, and I am in the best shape of my life. This has been the best money I have ever spent in my life. You can’t put a price on the confidence I have now. . I have now lost all of the weight that I needed to, and have shifted to focus more on weight training. I have a way to go still to get that perfect body, but with my Xtreme family behind me, I have no doubt I will make it to the finish line.

Thanks,
Marcus
