In the summer of 2016, life punched me straight in the gut more than once. Regarding health, my blood sugar (type 2 diabetic) and pressure were both too high (medication required to manage). I had been pretty much just letting life happen to me for the past 10 years. Working too much and workout too little (not at all). I realized, I could either be a victim of circumstance and come up with excuses for continuing not to take care of myself or I could decide to be accountable and make changes. In August 2016, I started and ended my search for a trainer. I selected Jeremy simply because I like to know the science or why behind things. His background in bio-mechanics, nutrition and experience coaching basically sealed the deal. Some of the other trainers just seemed repeat buzzwords or I just didn’t click with their approach. Did I see improvement working with Jeremy? Is it worth the time and cost to hire the right trainer? I’ll give you the raw data and let you decide for yourself. Then (August 2016), 304 lbs., my A1C was around 7.5, placed on blood pressure and blood sugar medications. Now (May 2017), 207 lbs., A1C 5.2 (no longer in diabetic range), all medication doses cut in half. 264 days or almost 9 months of exercise and nutritional eating (not dieting) to lose almost 100 lbs., increase strength and increase endurance. All of which has dramatically improved my health which cascaded to improving my life in almost all areas. Recommendation for getting on track: 1st – Know your “Why”, because it will be something to hold on to when you begin to lose motivation. 2nd – “Just show up", it's the hard part because its all mental. Your mind comes up with reasons on why you can’t “today”), but your body can do the workouts.
Through the Body Lab I was fortunately able to be introduced to Eli, a magnificant evidence-based training coach who enlightened my own approaches towards fitness and nutrition. He understands the importance of scientific evidence used in practice, with a blend of heaping experience and individualized attention. In an industry full of misconceptions and undereducated trainers, Eli has raised the bar with a combination of extensive formal education and self-driven thirst for knowledge fueled by his passion for helping others reach their goals and providing ever-improving levels of value.
