My new life style and fitness journey began when I walked into Real Training and Fitness and met Jack Sullivan. I was seeing my 40th birthday coming up quickly on the horizon and knew I wanted to be in the best shape of my life by that time. I knew it was going to be a hard endeavor with having three children ranging from ages 22, 13 and 3, and a very demanding and busy career that requires a lot of travel. I was about 30 pounds overweight and I knew I had a lot of work to do. I met with Jack and explained my situation and what I was looking for. Instantly Jack and the staff at Real Training and Fitness made me feel comfortable and at home and from that first meeting I became a part of the Real Training and Fitness family.
Over the course of the following six months Jack provided me with personal training and a nutrition and supplement program to follow. He carefully monitored my diet and weight loss changed it on a weekly basis to ensure I was moving in the right direction with my weight loss and body transformation. Not only did Jack provide the nutrition and training support but he provided me the emotional support and encouragement that I needed to keep going if I got discouraged. He tailored a plan personally for me to fit my busy life with my kids and demanding career.
Because of the training environment and Jack’s encouragement and patience I became addicted to the lifestyle and truly began to realize that there was no way I was going back to my old ways. As my weight began to drop and my body began to transform I decided I wanted to enter a figure competition. This again was a goal I wanted to meet before my 40th birthday. I worked with Jack on figuring out what competition would be best for me and the training and diet began. I entered my first competition in November as a Master’s Figure competitor and won first place in my class and two second place trophies in other classes I had entered. I had the time of my life and am looking to competing in many more competitions. Overall in my journey I have lost a total of almost 30 pounds and transformed my body into the physique that I thought I could have never obtained. In the process I have changed my life style overall attitude and life. I now have confidence that I have never had before. I never would have imagined that three years ago I would have gotten on stage in front of hundreds of people in a bikini, let alone my family and friends. I am so excited to go forward with my journey and can’t wait to see where it takes me. I plan on being with Real Training and Fitness and Jack Sullivan every step of this journey. Jack and the whole staff make it their responsibility to insure that you receive the results you are looking for with support, advice and just overall caring and concern.
Real Training and Fitness is not just a gym but it is a family. I feel so blessed and honored to be a part of this family.
