Carolyn Williams – “In addition to making significant physical progress in just six months, I am eating on a more regular basis and sleeping better than I have in years.”

Peggy and Thomas Allen – “I dropped 3% body fat in five weeks! “

I was given an ultimatum from my doctor last December:  Either I get my health in-check on my own within the next few months, or I will be going on several medications to get my cholesterol and high blood pressure down plus, a diabetes diagnosis was nipping at my heals.  Genetically I know I have things stacked against me - my dad died of heart disease at 62 and my sister had a stroke at 56 - I'm … [Read more...]

After my surgery, I started using a treadmill at home about 4 days a week but I found it boring and hard to continue to get motivated. I decided to try using a trainer … [Read more...]

I was able to … [Read more...]
