Previous condition: Feeling tired, stressed, and overall in poor shape Motivation to change: I wanted to feel less back pain, and stress.. Since I started training I have not had any back issues, sleeping better, and feel much better about my overall health. I wanted to change my lifestyle so I can live longer and Howard was a key part of the steps needed to make these changes manageable. Obstacles: I love to eat good food, and drink good wine. Most days the motivation to get up was only knowing Howard was there to pull me through those first few months; otherwise, I would not have continued. Overcoming obstacles: Knowing I was seeing Howard a few times each week was a motivator to now waste mine or his time. I wanted to feel better and Howard gave me the steps I needed to take to reach my objective. Current health: Excellent - I am in the best shape I have been since I was a kid. I am 42 but feel like I am 20 again. Final words: Thanks to Howard's training and guidance - I lost 27 pounds and down to 13% body fat. Howard is such an authentic trainer, he shoots straight, and has an extensive knowledge base in every area I needed help: nutrition, weight training, cardio, and stress relief tactics.Jul 27, 2014
Very knowledgeable. On time. Listened to what expectations were to be met and continued to check in and to make sure everything was going well.Jul 24, 2014Howard J.'s reply
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help Thomas reach and exceed his summer goal. I look forward to continuing our training thru the school year and soccer season.
