“Physical fitness was at the bottom on my list of priorities”
As a husband and father of three children I have to say physical fitness was at the bottom on my list of priorities. I believe the commercial says, “Life Happens.” Between work, travel, family activities and so on, I couldn’t find the time to exercise. As I approached “40” I began to think how much longer I could maintain my current lifestyle and still be healthy enough to enjoy my children. That changed in May of 2007 when I decided to visit Rob Z Fitness. I had read many of the testimonials in The Osprey Observer and have to say I was a bit skeptical going into this. I just couldn’t believe all these people were losing 20, 30, 40 pounds or more. Rob and Davie were very courteous and professional during my initial consultation and I immediately felt relaxed and comfortable. What excited me the most was Rob’s enthusiasm and confidence with regards to my potential weight loss. He said it would be hard work but if I followed his plan losing 50 pounds would easily be attainable.
As I mentioned before, exercise and physical fitness has never been a priority in my life. Rob, Davie and Taylor treated me like gold and made it enjoyable to do something that quite frankly I never enjoyed doing. All of a sudden I didn’t mind getting up before work to go to the gym or going for a run at night after the kids were asleep instead of checking email or watching television. When your priorities change finding one hour a day to improve your health is not that difficult of a task.
Following Rob’s suggested eating and exercise plan I saw immediate results. I weighed in at 273 lbs on my first visit, now I weigh 213 lbs (60 lbs. fat loss). I lost over 35 pounds in the first 3 months and now after 6 months I have lost 60 pounds. I lost 6 inches around my chest, 8 inches each around my waist and hips. I have more energy than ever. I am stronger physically and mentally. The aches and pains that I associated with getting older are gone. And I feel great knowing I’m setting a good example for my children.
If you’re reading this and you have any doubts, like I did, I encourage you to give Rob a call. I’ve learned there is no quick fix to weight loss; you have to change your lifestyle. Proper nutrition and exercise are the keys, it’s that simple.
