Rather than listen to me babble on about what we do, you may want to hear directly from a client – perhaps someone in a similar boat as you.
Meet Karen. I’ve had the opportunity to train Karen at three different times in her life, though this most recent stint is where substantial change occurred. She has every distraction that a normal person does: a dedicated mom, full-time school teacher, musician and a laundry list of ailments/injuries. But rather than use any of this as an excuse, she just got it done.
Plain and simple.
I have tried to be healthy for most of my life. I was careful with what I ate and tried to exercise (when I had time). Once I hit 40, though, my body didn’t seem to bounce back from my increasingly longer periods of inactivity and “cheat” eating days.
When I finally decided to contact Cord in the fall of 2014, I was 45 years old and felt like a mess. I was gradually putting on weight, my energy was low, I had neck pain, back pain, hip and knee pain, and could barely walk with the pain in my feet from plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis. It was time to invest
in my health, so I bought a package of 100 training sessions and consulted Cord about improving my nutrition.
Just under a year later, Cord and Evan have transformed my life! I lost 30 pounds, have lots of energy throughout the day, feel strong, and am pain free! My Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis completely cleared up without any additional treatments, my hips and knees feel strong and stable, and I no longer need to use orthotics. My friends, family, and colleagues regularly comment on how much better I look, based on my weight loss and overall healthy demeanor.
From day one, Cord and Evan have emphasized “core” strength and proper form. I told Evan that I wish I could run, but I figured it would never be possible because of my various joint pains. Once I started to feel stronger, Evan worked with me on the treadmill to develop proper walking and running form. Now, I run three times per week and feel light on my feet.
I am so happy with my transformation that I have purchased another 100-session package. Now that I am fit and strong, my new goal is to increase my strength and develop a higher level of athleticism. I look forward to every session with Peak. Cord is a master at hiring the best trainers, so I know that I will learn something new and valuable at every session, no matter who is working with me.
Congratulations, Karen and thank you for having the courage to share your story! You’re a role model and the Peak Fitness team has been delighted to play a part in your success. Keep up the good work!
