Perhaps one of the most memorable clients that I have had the pleasure to work with is a current client, Elaine. Elaine and I met for her initial assessment and goal evaluation meeting July 27, 2010. Her basic measurements revealed her beginning weight was 190 lbs., her Body Fat was 43%, and her BMI was 35.7. She was 71 years old. Her medical history revealed that she was in a car wreck, where 6 ribs were broken and a punctured lung. She had been to physical therapy for frozen left and right shoulders.LEARN MORE
Rarely do I mention anything about any one's success before they reach most of their goals. Sometimes a client achieves a goal that truly amazes me and I have to share it. Rick is a perfect example of this.
Rick and I scheduled our initial appointment. He was a 60 year old ex-jock who had played football, baseball, and basketball. After his playing days were over, he took up tennis and golf.
Jon's Story is pretty typical of my clients that are over 40 and wish to lose weight. Sometimes, clients are reluctant to adopt all of the training process. They try to hold on to their old ideas, especially where diet and cardiovascular activity are concerned. They continue to eat the same as they did in their 20's and stick to the same cardiovascular activity as they have done for years or resume what they did in their 20's. Unfortunately, this rarely works. The metabolism changes as we age, and the changes become more dramatic and apparent after 40.LEARN MORE
My Black Lab and sometime assistant, Abby, has a recovery success of her own. Let me point out it is not my purpose to train dogs, but her story is an excellent example of a situation I encounter regularly and how I brought about her success. Abby came to me as a 10 1/2 month old puppy. I immediately introduced her to retrieving. She was quick to learn and was well on her way to being a very good retriever. I took her to the vet for a preliminary exam, waiting for her full exam on her first birthday.
