“Stop putting it off until tomorrow. Start your journey today!”
"Last year, my wife Shannon and I joined Sport&Health due to concerns about our family’s health. I’m 5’ 5” and when I started my journey, I weighed 234.5 pounds with 34% body fat. I was known as the short fat Irish guy (or the short stocky Irish guy if people were being polite).
Shannon and I took advantage of the new member personal training special to help us get started. I was fortunate enough to get paired up with Laszlo, and have been training with him ever since.
Nine months later, with Laszlo’s diet and plenty of exercise, I have lost 96 pounds, my 44-inch waist is now a 28-inch waist, and my body fat is less than 10%! I even competed in my first natural bodybuilding competition, placing 3rd in Men’s Novice & Men’s 40+.
More importantly, my family is now working out and eating healthier too!
When I was heavy, I missed a lot of quality time with the kids because I was embarrassed of the way I looked. I didn’t want to take my shirt off at the pool and my energy level was very low. I didn’t want to see out of town family, go to weddings or reunions because I was worried about being judged. Now I don’t mind the pool... I actually play with my kids at the beach and water parks. I even hold the drop seat record on our trampoline and I have way more energy. Find your motivation and get started today!"
