A Great Testimonial from Another One of our Satisfied Clients about our All Star Trainer Adrienne Jones

 

Adrienne,

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you.  You have been able to do, in just a few months, what I’ve been trying to do my entire life.

As you know, in 1999, I blew out my left knee; Partial ACL, MCL torn cartilage and a shattered tibial plateau.  Due in part to a doctors incompetence, I had to refrain from major physical activity for a year and a half.  In that time I developed some awful habits.  I stopped working out, I ate horribly, and in general, I let my body go.

 

I’ve tried several times to get in better shape.  I’ve joined 4 gyms.  I’ve enrolled in “boot camps,” tried to get into cycling (including several rides in LOTOJA).  None of this has worked.

 

In December 2010, I started to play rugby.  I really did it not knowing what I was getting into.  I had never played a contact sport before, and it just sounded like something fun to do.  I played one season, just learning the basics of the game.   I started to realize that I wasn’t playing as much as everyone else, the problem was that I couldn’t keep up.  I couldn’t hit as hard as everyone else.  I was worn out after playing for 5 minutes.  Essentially I was useless to the team.

 

The Gym was the perfect solution.  Just ask your sales guys how excited I was about the gym opening.  I couldn’t wait.  It was in the same block as my office, and it was simply beautiful!  I decided this was my chance to step it up.  As soon as I could get it scheduled I took the private training session, and I determined that if I was going to do this it had to be the right way.   Part of my problem was that all thought I knew that hard work was required; I had no idea how to do it.

 

That’s when we started to work together.  You gave me clear workouts that didn’t require an entire afternoon.  They were effective.  They changed on a regular basis, so I worked on different areas of my body and honestly….so I didn’t get bored.  The workouts you gave me were tough enough to make me push myself but not so tough I couldn’t do them.

 

The biggest mystery to me is nutrition.  I’m a bit of a foodie, and I love good food.  I’ve tried all sort of diets, fad diets, all protein diets, “body for life.”  They just don’t work for me.  When I asked you the question about what I should be eating, you spelled it out for me.  You didn’t tell me what to eat, as much as you taught me HOW to eat.  Now in my schedule at work, on my phone, on my Ipad, I get alerts that tell me “time for some protein and fruit”.  I’m able to eat out with my clients, because I know how to order food.

 

You listened to me and my goals.  You looked at the crazy pictures of rugby players I sent you so I felt like you really understood what it is I’m trying to do.  I’ve spoken with trainers at other gyms… regardless of my goals, their advice I’m told is generic and basic (yes I know I should stretch…).  Yours is clearly targeted to me, my body, and my goals to live a better life and be a better Rugby player.

 

I know I have a long way to go, but finally I have traction.  I’m moving in the right direction.  I’m excited to head to the gym each day and work up a good sweat.  I look forward to eating well and don’t have to gorge myself on supersized big macs anymore!

 

I couldn’t have done this without you!  You’ve been a great guide for me, and I look forward to working with you to get to my goal body shape, and working with you after to stay there.  Thanks a million

 

Steve Eror
