What are your fitness goals for 2017?
- Keep up with my workouts
- Make consistent improvements in strength and endurance
- Continue increasing muscle mass to help maintain/lose more overall weight
What is your weekly workout routine?
Typically, I workout with my awesome trainer, Chelsea, once a week, then rotate my other gym days between high intensity circuits, strength training, and moderate cardio. I aim for 4-6 days/week at the gym.
What keeps you motivated?
- Chelsea (seriously, without her, I would struggle much more)
- My Son
- Knowing that time will pass regardless of my efforts and I don’t want to waste more time.
Do you have a success story to share?
I hit my all time high weight in late 2008, was able to lose some and then maintain that small loss for several years. When my son was 18 months old (2015), my weight was creeping up again and I decided to take care of it once and for all. I have lost a total of 140lbs, with 100lbs of that loss in the last 2 years! I follow a low carb lifestyle and focus on maintaining regular workouts. I’m not done losing, but am enjoying the journey!
