Last year, I stepped on the scale and almost cried at the number staring back at me. I had always been “a little over weight”, but this was a Huge wake up call for me. I was in my mid –twenties and in the worst shape of my life. Ever since Melanie, my trainer has come into my life she has pushed me to help change my life. Before I met my trainer at Body Renew, I was on a vicious cycle of gaining and losing weight, and I was beginning to feel defeated in my weight loss. Melanie has pushed me in my workouts and helped me focus on my nutrition and goals. She believed in me when I no longer believed in myself. I can always be assured that Melanie would be right there beside me in my journey. She has helped me reach almost all my goals. Melanie and Body Renew have changed my life forever.

I have been heavy for most of my adult life, and it has taken me forty years to learn some very important lessons – that I am worthy of being happy and healthy, that I have the skills to get there, and that I have the power to use those skills.  I must be consistently disciplined. The battle of losing weight is 99% head games, and I am winning this time. I recognize my excuses I make up, and counteract them with positive self talk. I get to the gym, I stay on a healthy food plan, I track everything that goes in my mouth, and I accept occasional stumbles. Body Renew has played a huge part in my success. The trainers have pushed me, inspired me, and kept me going. The staff make me feel welcome and accepted, and the food tracker on BR Solutions is easy and essential. I’m trying to lose the all-or-nothing mentality.  This is not a race.  It is a way of life.  I am in training for an event that will never occur.  Edwin Louis Cole once said, “You don’t drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there.”

After 7 years of working from home, sitting in front of a computer 8 to 12 hours per day and watching myself get more and more out of shape, I decided that I needed to do something about it.  Oh yeah, over that period of time we had talked about going to the gym and even purchased home gym equipment that soon became something to hang your coat on when you came in from the garage.  We toured a gym or 2 trying to decide if that would work for us or not.   In October 2013 I joined Body Renew in Eagle River.  Initially it was so there were no more excuses and I would make the time to get out of the house, go to the gym and workout.  I also decided that if I was going to do this I needed someone to get me going, give me some direction, and motivate me.  I signed up for a personal trainer.   Chris has been exactly what I needed to get me going and keep me moving forward.   Initially I had a goal of losing 20-25 pounds and just getting in better  physical shape but wasn’t real sure if it was going to work out.  Chris has provided the encouragement and support I needed to keep going and take control of my life and personal fitness again.  Not only does he provide the physical training and the exercises I need, but he also provides suggestions on improving my overall diet and my overall health.  Under Chris’s guidance I did the Advocare 24 Day Challenge and was able to push through my plateau and reach my weight loss goal.   After 10 months I have exceeded my initial goal for weight loss, completely changed my outlook on nutrition and overall feel better than I have in years.

Looking at the pictures, that’s when I really notice the difference. I have lost weight, gained muscle, and accomplished speed and endurance that I haven’t seen in years. It is more than just an external change. I am confident, motivated and determined. It feels good and honestly I attribute many of these changes to hard work, determination and Body Renew. The trainers here have pushed me and helped me reach my daily workout. The support is unmatched and that is the difference why I have been successful at becoming healthier this time. My lifestyle change has had a ripple effect. I have an 11-month-old daughter and she is benefitting from having a dad who has the energy to chase and keep up with her. She often accompanies me to the gym and loves playing with the wonderful childcare ladies. The staff at Body Renew has helped change my life and there aren’t words to describe how thankful and grateful I am. I have set personal and professional goals for myself and and now have the tools to reach them.

In August 2012 I realized it was time to make a change and start working out to become healthier. I signed up for Body Renew to work with a trainer and keep me motivated and driven to lose weight. At first I was a little discouraged and was not seeing results like I thought that I would be. Soon after the first month the weight began coming off, I started feeling better when seeing the results and was ready to kick butt. I was working full time, going to school not being able to eat right or make it to the gym. After working out with Whitney, setting a good meal plan counting my calories right as well that was enough motivation to get back on the horse. I started at 236 lbs and by December I was down to 219 lbs. Just in those few months that was a big change for me to finally start feeling good like I had overcome a hurdle, that feeling of a few pounds off made a difference. I felt confident, healthy, happy and determined. As time went on the weight kept coming off, but of course there is always a set back. I think had it not been for my driven trainer to motivate me , I do not think I would have made it this far. Whitney has shown me determination and dedication get you there, not saying NO, but always saying I can, I will and I am going too. There are no words for my appreciation for the she has given me to be where I am now at this weight and still losing. I am now 179.8 lbs and plan to compete in a figure competition October 2015, lean , strong and weighing 145 lbs. Thank you Body Renew, Thank you Whitney for not giving up on me, but helping me to achieve my goal weight.
