BODY FAT REDUCTION: 21%

ALEX’S STORY: ” I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer. I had never been in a gym before in my life. I was in a completely foreign environment. Joe really has a gift at meeting his clients where they are and helping them be aware of their own strengths and abilities. His encouragement and patience really helped me to feel comfortable in the gym right away, and he made sure that the workouts were always fun yet very challenging.”

“I can say with honesty that Joe has been one of the most positive role models and inspirations in my life. He not only showed me what I am capable of, but he fostered in me the spirit of always wanting to do better and to push myself to the next level. I don’t think you could go wrong with working with Joe.”

WEIGHT LOSS: 7 lbs
BODY FAT REDUCTION: 5%

CHAMMY’S STORY: “Out of all the trainers I looked into, Joe was the only one who was knowledgeable about diastasis recti. My doctor told me there were two ways to fix it: surgery or training. Joe trained me into fixing my condition without the need of surgery. I am forever grateful to him for this. It took about 6 months to close my gap. My husband appreciates Joe for helping me achieve my goal and getting my body back to what it was!”

AGE CATEGORY: Over 50
WEIGHT LOSS: 75 lbs
BODY FAT REDUCTION: 17%
CURRENT LIFESTYLE:
 Avid cyclist, 5k runner, Rugged Maniac enthusiast, concert fanatic
MIKE’S STORY: “At 53 years old I had never worked out a day in my life, and I was faced with what felt like an insurmountable task of ever being healthy. I was literally frightened at the prospect of trusting another person with my (lack of) fitness! But these have been the best six months of my life. My BMI is below the original target set when I first started training with Joe. And, with his strong encouragement (and detailed preparation), I ran my first 5K. Joe is not just my trainer, he is my training partner. We both invest in this partnership, and that is why Joe is the best at what he does.”

His intelligence and experience combined with intuition and creativity helped me to reach and even exceed my goal.”  Mary’s peers actually dubbed her the “grey-haired goddess”.   That’s definitely a title she’s earned!

 

 

 

 

NO MORE MEDICATION

Brian Ruschmeier - before, after

NAME: Brian R.
AGE CATEGORY: Over 50
WEIGHT LOSS: 20 lbs
BODY FAT REDUCTION: 7%
BRIAN’S STORY: Brian began training with a diagnosis of angina, a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. He carried around nitroglycerin in case of an attack and feared for his life in some respects. While working with a previous trainer he experienced two episodes that led to ambulance rides.  Working with Healthy To 100, he began to apply the PRIMEpathway protocol and had this to say:

“I have been training with Joe for one year.  Joe has changed my life both in and out of the gym.  He has kept me motivated and on track with his support and encouraging words.  He taught me how to relax and handle stress. I sleep and eat better and am more productive at work.  I have been able to stop taking some of my medications and reduce the dosage of others.  I am healthier and stronger, and in the best physical shape of my life.  My weight is the lowest it has been in 20 years.  My body is more muscular and defined than at any time in my life.”
