I went into APT the week before Easter weighing in at 285lbs. I physically could not walk without my knees and back hurting. It was a struggle to get out of bed. I knew it was time for a change, but I just wasn’t motivated. I didn’t realize how out of shape I had gotten. My body fat percentage was over 30% and my visceral fat (the fat around my organs) was over 15%. I needed to get motivated and get some results.
I met with Keith and his first question was, “What is your goal? To lose weight? Get stronger?“ I said my goal is just to be able to do activities with my family. I just wanted to be able to enjoy my family. To be able to wake up and out of the blue decide to do an obstacle course or go for a neighborhood run. I wanted to go kayaking and skiing without hurting myself. So Keith wrote up a fitness plan for me and gave me an easy diet to follow.
My biggest hurdle was making the time to go. I had worked out in the past, and I always found excuses not to go, and when I did go I would find myself doing the same exercises over and over.
At APT I work out around my schedule. There are many trainers so I am not locked into just one, and I don’t have to adhere to that trainer’s schedule. The trainers also communicate with each other and work as a team to help me achieve my goals.
I look forward to going to the gym. The atmosphere is always fun and energetic. The workouts are never boring or repetitive, and the trainers always make sure my form is good and that I am doing the exercise safely. It’s been almost five months, and I am now down 60lbs! My body fat percentage is 15% and most importantly my visceral fat is at 9%. I feel like a new man, and I couldn’t have done it without APT.
