I am a military vet and was in extremely good shape until about 5 years ago. I suffered a herniated disc in my lower back and another in my neck. Surgery was recommended but I decided against it. Since then I have had a lot of complications. For a few years I was barely able to walk more than a hundred feet. I saw two chiropractors and a physical therapist. I plateaued at about 50% better with what I thought would be permanent loss of range of motion, and loss of full use of my right leg. I could not exercise, gained weight, and finally gave up. The problems in my neck resulted in migraines several times a month. I started seeing Max about 5 weeks ago. I see him 3 times a week for half an hour of high intensity cardio and stretching. I also review nutrition with him and he keeps me on track. I saw significant results with regards to my back within the first week. I have gone from barely reaching my knees to touching my toes. I could not run more than 1-2 minutes at a time before, and now I have run 3 5ks in the last few weeks! Granted I am still around 13 minute miles, but one step at a time! I have also lost some weight, have my nutrition back on track, and have received several compliments about how my physical appearance has improved. I have only had one migraine in the last 5 weeks and that was during a week that I could not attend training due to an emergency. Results do not happen overnight. It can take a few months to build your body back into shape and learn nutrition to be able to lose weight. Like Max said, it took me years to get out of shape, it will take me some time to get back in to shape. But exercise, weight loss, muscle gain, and even bone and muscle healing get easier as you work on it. As your muscles strengthen, cardiovascular system improves, and weight decreases, these things put less strain on your body so that you can push yourself farther. It is not all about weight loss. Weight loss is the result of good health. Good health comes first. Max has shown me this. He knows how to push me to improve, to give it my all, while healing and restoring my range of motion. He has given me my life back in 5 short weeks. My wife and I are filled with joy. I can run and play with my kids, get out of bed in the morning, and complete work around the house without limping, losing feeling in my right leg, and eventual loss of use of my right leg if I pushed too hard. I plan on staying with Max for another few months to completely build my body back to good health and set me up with good nutrition and a good plan to continue to keep myself in good shape on my own for the rest of my life. Thank you!
