You are probably where I was in 2009: overweight, stressed-out, and frustrated that you can't lose weight and keep it off.
I tried lots of diets and followed various free workouts that I found online. I would lose weight but I always felt like I was depriving myself and my workouts felt more like a punishment than an accomplishment. Unfortunately, I would always gain the weight back because I couldn't maintain the diets and I didn't know enough about exercise to keep my results moving forward.
That year, I was fortunate to meet a coach who helped spark a passion for health. I spent the next year losing 80 lbs and getting certified as a personal trainer.
The good news for you is two-fold:
With his no-nonsense approach, Stephen will get the most out of whatever time you give him and you WILL get results. Be ready to learn and work hard while having fun getting results. I lost 50 POUNDS in 9 months with this guy. He is down to earth, and his honest approach will get you to know a LOT more about YOUR motivation and habits, and how they play into your eating and exercise habits, or lack thereof. I recommend him to all of my friends who are serious about their goals, however big or small.
With an extensive knowledge of both fitness and nutrition, Stephen is great at customizing workouts, building on strengths, and overcoming weaknesses to produce results.
Initially, I was concerned I couldn't keep up due to my age and being inactive most of my life. That hasn't been the case because Stephen does a great job of making everything personalized
Stephen is great at motivating you to push yourself, which helped me notice a difference quickly. Fantastic with nutritional advice as well. Recommend to anyone at any fitness level.
Stephen is dedicated to his craft and is a genuine guy who balances teaching and pushing his clients extremely well, which got the best out of me.
