I’m a very happy Personal Trainer Denver CO client! So happy in fact, that I have asked Mark Mueller if I could share my story with you on his blog. I have written on this blog before, but, never with the results that I have had in the last 12 weeks. Why are my results different? The main reason they are different is that I have followed his instructions exactly this time.
Odd isn’t it? Odd that I would hire a professional personal trainer to help me with a task and then disregard the instructions given. But, I did – I ignored part of his instructions for 3 years… guess I am a slow learner. I think I excelled at the resistance training/workout side. I love a hard, challenging workout and he never fails to deliver(Don’t worry, if you need a less rigorous workout – he can assess and adjust to your needs – I have seen him train a less physically fit 72 yr old woman with similar ease and success). The workouts are customized to my fitness goals and are always slightly different – no small feat considering that I have been his client for 4 years!
Until recently I have flunked the nutrition side. It just doesn’t seem logical to me that I could lose weight by eating – that is counter intuitive.
And yet it has proven to be very true. This time I have had results because I have eaten. Mark had me keep a food journal for a couple weeks before we started the new plan. We reviewed it together and all of his recommendations were based on the foods I like and that fit within my lifestyle. I am very much an eat on the run kind of person, so my plan could not include 4 course sit down meals. He combined this information with his expertise on the subject and created a plan that has worked. We review the food journal once a month and I follow his instructions on what to change or do differently. Those instructions have usually had to do with when I eat what.
My results: in the first 8 weeks I lost 15 1/2 lbs and 6″ overall. My next official weigh in is Sept 1. I will let you all know how I have done this last 4 weeks. I think I have done ok, because, none of my clothes fit – in a big way! Not complaining about that one!
So for all you out there struggling with your weight and fitness – please, don’t do that anymore. Easy access to the internet means that you can ask for Marks help too – by commenting on this blog, by contacting him through his social media, or by calling him. If you don’t live in the area or can’t train with him, still do contact him. He will help you come up with the best plan for your circumstances. If you do live in the area – wow! don’t miss a chance to get his personalized care and attention!
If you want to prove to yourself that I am real, that my story is real, you can contact me through twitter: iempoweru I’d be glad to connect with you. Sincerely, Linda Hughes
