1. Name, what you do, and where you are from?
Bob Calabro, I am retired after working 32 years for Anheuser-Busch, Inc. I have lived in Coppell for 21 years.
2 Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
Like everyone I wanted to lose some weight. But more importantly I wanted to change my diet and workout habits. My wife Gina and I decided to join together this past April. Our diet has improved since we are both in the GYIS program.
3 What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Before GYIS I lacked energy and was always tired, my diet had no balance, and I was not sleeping well.
4 What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
From the get go I was impressed by the GYIS instructors who are always positive and know everyone by name. I always feel like they are looking out for me. Also workouts are never the same, the variation keeps you interested. There are also many fun contests to help motivation.
5 What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
Bimonthly Measurements and Weight Tracking have been beneficial to keeping me on track. I use my UP band to help track my steps, calories burned, and count my hours of sleep each night. I also take the recommended nutritional products daily, shakes as a morning meal replacement, Catalyst before every workout , and I also love Spark energy drink.
6. How is the Get You In Shape program different from other programs you have tried before? Or What makes Get you In Shape different or unique?
The personalized attention separates GYIS from the run of the mill gym work out. The instructors take a personal interest in your workout goals encouraging me to celebrate small wins along the way. Workout mates are also very encouraging helping to motivate one another. This positive environment helps me look forward to the next workout no matter how challenging.
7 What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
I lost 10 pounds my first month of GYIS and another 5 pounds per month for the next 4 months. After five months I am down 30 pounds. I am now eating better, the doctor has reduced my blood pressure\cholesterol meds by 50 percent, I am also sleeping much better and have much more energy throughout the day.
8 What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
GYIS has been a game changer for me and can be for anyone that is willing to make modifications in their exercise and diet habits. I now look forward to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday(s) due to the positive vibe that all the instructors and clients bring to each and every workout. You will look and feel better in a short period of time.
