"I am a 69 year old male, have been a resident of Kern County, and more specifically Bakersfield for 60+ years.
I am a Professional Regional Sales Manager for a very large National Corporation in charge of 1004 West Coast Employees. Additionally,
I am a Retired Army Lieutenant, a Veteran of Viet Nam, am in my late 60's, and I have always considered myself fit both physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. My military and professional record this far suggests that is true.
Recently, for relatively natural reasons, I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, and Hypertension. Additionally, a strain which occurred perhaps in basic training, got worse during my deployment and years of duck hunting, and most recently on the bench press, I have been diagnosed with a partially torn right shoulder rotator cuff. Also, I have had 2 surgeries to repair a torn ACL which was and is problematic from a fall that I took while on a Mud Run in 2012, and a re-tear in 2014 on the stairs at my 2nd home in the snow in my Tehachapi home.
I came to The Health, Fitness, Diet and Wellness Doctor in October of 2016 even though I am an experienced gym member of 40 years, I go to the gym 4 to 5 X per week for nearly that entire time minus a couple of years for the injuries though I stayed active. I thought I was an expert in diet, weights, cardio, form and staying healthy as I am avid weight lifter, do a cardio appropriately, and have had a good diet, or so I thought, for the majority of my life.
BOY, WAS I WRONG ABOUT A FEW KEY FACTORS WHICH MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. If you are an 8 cylinder, DOHC, 5.0L engine that is only running on 7 cylinders, you will absolutely lose all your performance, and your engine will fail within 50 miles. That was me. I was falling apart.
I had to swallow my pride, and I had to seek help. I HAD TO HAVE THE HEALTH, FITNESS, DIET AND WELLNESS DOCTOR do a free consultation, decided to hire a Nutritionist as I had gained over 45 pounds, a personal trainer to help with fat loss, lean body mass gain, decreasing my body fat % which went from 12% to 27% in the last 5 years, and a LIFECOACH TO DEAL WITH THE DEPRESSION OF IT ALL.
They are remarkable, a 10/10 in friendliness, availability, service, EDUCATION AND EXPERTISE, and they do a Beverly Hills-Malibu job with you in all these areas for KERN COUNTY RATES,...LITERALLY HALF OF WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT.
I highly recommend The Fit Doc for all needs your insurance, education, time, experience, family; other experts in The Health Industry just can't expertly cover all in once.
