Happy New Years and Welcome to 2014! This is going to be a HUGE year for a lot of you who are planning on reaching your fitness goals and have a plan to do so. Here is the story of Alex P., the winner of the Legacy Transformation Contest! If you guys missed the first round, we will be running another Transforamtion Contest starting in late March and going until Memorial Day, so get yourselves ready!
Alex had worked very hard over the last couple of months to become the Legacy Transformation Contest winner. With over 30 lbs lost in the 7 weeks, you know he dedicated himself to the goal. He chose the online training option where I actually wrote a training program for him online and followed up to make the sessions progressively more challenging to a level he needed and give support along the way.
Really proud of you Alex! Below is his testimonial along with his progress pics taken every 2 weeks throughout the contest. Read on!
Over the past 4+ years I have been training with Joey on and off and have seen major growth in the strategies and techniques that he employs with all his clients. When he approached me about joining this competition I was intrigued. It could not have come at a better time. As I had become extremely comfortable in my personal life and though I trained 5-6 days a week I didnt always maintain a healthy lifestyle. I had reached a weight and physique that I did not think I would go back to after the hard work I had done in the past to get to what I thought would be an easily maintainable state. At 213 lbs I was able to “push” a lot of weight in the in the iron jungle but could see my chins (yes multiple) and midsection jiggle every time I did a burpee. . . . not cool.
Joey’s contest propelled me to get my ass back in gear and change my life for thebetter. I knew it would take a lot of work, dedication, and mental toughness. I started with the basics – Joey’s Nutritional Guidelines, two a day training sessions and a serious workout progression created by Joey. I was lifting 3-4 days a week followed by either a spin class or a conditioning workout. Though that sounds intense, that was the easy part. Coming home after a long day, I would still have to force myself to prepare dinner and the next days meals. I knew I needed to do this to be successful.
I would like to thank Joey for all the motivation and tools he provided to get me to a healthier state of being. At 30 years old I have turned a corner and look forward to the long road ahead to maintain what he has pushed me to accomplish. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this process. In the photos provided I tracked them every two weeks throughout the contest to keep myself motivated whenever I wanted to give up.
Thanks Joey and let’s go LEGACY!
