Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
I just found out that I was diabetic, 450 lbs. I was sore and hurting all over. No energy at all. I would fall asleep a couple of times a day at my desk. My back hurt, my hips hurt, I hurt all over. Wasn’t sleeping at night. Just a total mess.
Q: Why did you decide to join the Get You In Shape program?
I didn’t want to have to take insulin, so I decided I was going to lose 200 lbs., start working out and get healthy. Get my life back. By a blessing I saw your ad on Facebook. I had already been eating healthy and lost about 30 lbs., but I needed to get moving. I could barely load my own trucks in the morning. Just standing was hard, was a chore.
Q: What was your first impression from the Get You In Shape program?
I was very nervous because I was so out of shape. I was afraid I was going to make a mess out of myself. But everybody was really friendly. My first day, we were going from pavilion to pavilion, and I was lagging behind and one of the ladies came up to me and said I’m going to help get you through this today. It was just kind of like a family and everybody could work out at their own pace, fitness level. That’s what attracted me to coming here.
Q: What have been some of the tools you have used that have benefited you?
The accountability factor. Being able to work out at my own pace. I can’t do what other guys do right now, but it allowed me to come here and start moving and working out at my own pace and level.
Q: What results and benefits have you experienced in the Get You In Shape Program?
I’ve lost about 20lbs. My clothes are falling off of me, the inches are falling off. My energy level is night and day. I’m able to go through the whole day with no naps or sleeping. I could barely walk 100 yards and now I’m walking a mile a day. My blood pressure is down, my diabetes is down, so everything is a lot better.
Q: What would you say to anyone looking at this program?
Join to get moving, the people the staff are friendly, they help you, they push, they hold you accountable. It’s kind of like a family. That’s what I like about it.
