Busy Executive’s Weight Loss Success Story

This busy executive contacted me saying that she was an active person who skied, hiked and ran but had struggled with her weight for most of her life. And although she is a vegan, she admitted to eating too many calories and wanted to get help with her nutrition as well as the strength training and accountability.

Did I mention she is busy? And I mean BUSY! She is a top executive with a major company and works 12 to 14 hour days at her highly demanding job.

Despite the lack of free time, she did her best over the first 6 to 8 months of us working together to discover what nutrition strategies and regular workout schedule worked best for her. At about that point, that’s when she started making major progress with her weight and body fat reduction. She was able to find habits and strategies that worked for her.

Its been impressive to watch her attention and dedication to her nutrition plan. I can recall large family parties, vacations, company dinners and lavish restaurant dinners where she said no to the luscious, high-calorie foods available to her and stuck with her eating plan. She was ultra motivated and nothing was going to take her off course.

She has been just as dedicated to her workouts. She runs several times a week, hikes or skiis on weekends, lifts weights with me twice a week, attends a boot camp one evening and a Pilates yet another. Some nights she doesn’t get home until 9 pm from her workouts.

She tells me she would like to lose another 15 pounds and I know she will. I also am confident that she will then be able to maintain her weight loss because of the healthy lifestyle habits she has incorporated. And if you are struggling with your weight, let her be an inspiration to you.

Client Success Story: Lynn

Lynn’s Fitness Progress Report

At 49 years old, Lynn began training with me with a history of little to no exercise
and she was quick to tell me that she didn’t enjoy working out.  Her goals
were to tighten her body, increase her strength and lose inches.

After 4 months of workouts with me three days a week and a nutrition makeover,
Lynn’s results were amazing.

Lynn lost 5 inches, her body fat went down 4.2%, and her pushup strength increased
600%. It is interesting to note that with all these results her weight actually
increased .8 pound. This illustrates that with the correct nutrition plan and exercise
program that lean mass is maintained or even increased and body fat decreases.

Lynn now loves to exercise! She works out on a regular basis and continues to
see new and exciting changes in her body.

Lynn says: Best personal trainer ever!

I have never been able to stick to an exercise program but Maria changed that for
me in a big way. When I started with her in May I was extremely unfit. I had tried
other trainers, classes, gyms etc. but I’d always end up hurting myself or
being so sore I couldn’t get out of bed the next morning! She has shown me that
getting and staying fit is absolutely attainable and amazingly fun! I feel better
than I have since my 20’s. Thank you Maria, you have literally changed my life 🙂
