"This is not a fad lose weight quick program."
"I have never committed and stuck to a fitness program – ever. My intentions were always good. I tried Weight Watchers, LA Weight Loss, trained for and ran a marathon. I think I am addicted to the goal, then once achieved, it is back to my old ways.
In October, I met Mike Echt. I took the card and kept it on my desk for nearly a month before I finally called. My weight had climbed to 158 lbs. (up 13 lbs.) since I had moved here the year before. My eating was not healthy and I was not drinking enough water. He encouraged me to just come in and determine if it was for me. I tried Circuit Fitness and signed up for a 12 week program only committing to 3 days per week. The environment is so personal and encouraging. It never hurt so much that I did not want to return as with other programs. I just kept showing up. Mike would push me just to my limit and make me want to continue. He told me to sign up for My Fitness Pal and I tracked my food goals (1200 calories / 110g protein per day). On my off days, I used the app Couch to 5K and followed the program. I had started it many times but never finished.
Today I am a healthy 136 lbs. – down 22 lbs. This is not a fad lose weight quick program. It is a lifestyle program…a commitment. I feel good – now it’s up to me to keep SHOWING UP!"
