Gaspare loses the freshman 15 with a personal trainer which also gave him the strength to push past his limits, increase strength, and gain confidence!
What was life like before fitness/health?
Life before working out was a lot different. I would not think twice about what I was eating and how it was affecting my body, especially when I started University. The freshman 15 was proven to be true and over the past five years; with school stress and starting a full-time job, I became lazy and ate whatever I wanted. As time passed, I noticed changes in my body that I was not happy with and was embarrassed about. I was not confident with my body and was not motivated to do any physical activity. I had always wanted to get into a gym routine but made excuses not to do so.
What made you want to start working out/being healthy?
I started working out because I wanted to feel good about myself and be confident with my body.
I wanted to lose the freshman 15, tone my body and gain muscle, but I knew I needed someone to push me.
So I decided to work with a personal trainer 2-3 time a week. Working with my trainer has given me the strength to push my limits and gain the confidence I have been missing all along. Feeling energized, stronger and healthier with my body is has been the best feeling!
I chose BBD because I heard their personal training program had proven results. In January 2017, I started personal training with Dan M, and the results have been endless. Although there has been much sweat and pain, it has been worth it every step of the way.
I started getting compliments from family and friends, and it gave me the desire to keep pushing myself, even when I felt defeated.
I liked how BBD was a small gym, and I felt comfortable working out. I began looking forward to going to the gym and working to achieve my goals with my personal trainer. Going to the gym has become a place where I can unwind from my day and focus on me – getting stronger and healthier.
Through the sweat and pain, the reward for me was seeing that transformation in my body, whether from feeling/being stronger, slimming down or feeling more energized, it was the best reward for me because it proved that my hard work was paying off. I was able to come out of my comfort zone and gain back the confidence I had been missing.
Continuing my healthy eating habits and going to the gym to become stronger and toner!
