Mary’s skepticism about resistance training was a roadblock she quickly surpassed as she began to see desirable results. In addition, Mary was informed of the changes she would need to make in her daily life. For example, recommendations were made about her diet and she was given a maximum daily calorie intake that she had to follow obediently. With the fitness program I developed and facilitated, and with the “homework” I assigned, Mary was told and reassured she would soon see results and to expect them.
Now that Mary has reached her goal, nothing has changed. Mary is still the fighter she was when I first began to train her. When Mary puts her mind to something, she will do everything in her power to achieve her goal. She is a fitness lifer and I am certain she will continue to exercise and make healthy food choices, which are necessary to maintain the results she has achieved.
