MOTM Alexander MendozaI have been training with body renew for a year now. I can truly say it has been a wonderful transformation. When I began, I had just finished physical therapy for knee reconstruction. I sought someplace to train, but even then, by myself I seldom went beyond comfort. I seemed to just sit there wondering what to do next. Not knowing really how to train, I knew I would eventually lose interest and just give up. With my doctors consent I sought further assistance. I remember when I started with my trainer; I could barely do 5 lunges, was overweight, and now at 47 felt tired most of the time do to inactivity. Well my trainer Pawel Przetocki was not excepting excuses. He did for me what I was unable to do for myself, motivate and encourage me to push on. With his help and expertise, I found renewed determination to leave the tiered and unhealthy person I use to be, and push on to a renewed body, strengthened and full of energy. It wasn’t easy at first but with the equipment and trainers at Body Renew I soon started to see improvement. Soon I was running again, hiking and feeling so much better about myself, which was the best part of it, the more confidence I gained the better I felt. My doctor was amazed, I had lost 45 lbs. gained muscle and my knee was no longer an issue. I hope to continue on this path and new life style that I have learned as a member of Body Renew.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Trainer Testimonial: It has been an absolute privilege to train Alexander over the past year. He maintains an endless positive attitude, and an enduring willingness to tackle any exercise, no matter how grueling. This new version of himself is enjoying much more energy and vitality, enabling him to live each day to the fullest

When I started I was out of shape and on medications to control blood sugar and blood pressure. I am still half way to my target weight but now realize that the goal is not as important as the journey. Now I take the pleasure in pushing myself to new challenges and new athletic goals. Stephen has altered what I believed I could be physically capable of and now I want to push myself harder and faster every day! Trainer Testimonial: Todd’s passion for a better life in fitness plus my vision for what he could achieve were a perfect match. I have pushed him to the brink on several occasions, he continues to come back prepared for more. He has been able to conquer goals while setting new personal milestones along the way. We still have work to do. Nevertheless, reflecting on this accomplishment shows great reward! Job well done!

When I started working on my transformation about 6 years ago, I had joint and back pain associated with everyday activities, and had a lot of weight to lose. When I couldn’t tolerate the discomfort anymore, I lost a lot of weight on a fad diet, but gained it back after losing my father to cancer and letting my emotions take over. I had ballooned to 280 pounds. I got back into training at Body Renew and made progress again, but got stuck on a plateau for months even though I wasn’t near my end goal. Solo pointed out to me that my nutrition needed some serious improvements, and I soon began the 72day challenge. To my amazement, I’ve busted through that plateau and barely recognize myself in the mirror. Words cannot express how great I feel now and how much I appreciate what Solo and the rest of the staff at Body Renew have done to support me in this journey.

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.”
