Great Work Out, feeling the burn.
14 years ago, I opened Spears Personal Training, but the story doesn’t start there. The story begins with my own life-changing weight loss experience.
When I was 30 years old, I went to work for a large corporation where I spent most of my time at a desk. I was in pretty good shape and at a healthy weight going in, but after just 2 years, I started gaining weight like never before. I put on 40lbs over a 2 year period. I was the heaviest I had ever been. But it wasn’t just the weight, all the conventional health markers, cholesterol, blood proessure, etc. went from good to terrible.
I was 34, but I felt like I was 64. I had severe back pain all the time and my doctor wanted me to start taking prescriptions. And honestly, as I spiraled, I began to struggle with depression as well. I didn’t really want to go out that much, the little social life I had was mostly work-related. I just had lost my zest for life.
Finally, I hit rock bottom. The path I was on was killing me.
I dedicated myself to healthy habits, but at age 35, I noticed the weight didn’t fly off like it did in my early 20s.
Taking control of my health had changed my life. I wanted to offer that kind of positive change to all the people I saw struggling around me. After some deep soul searching, at age 37, I became a Personal Trainer.
Now, at 51-years old, I still feel young and I have been able to stay in great shape working out just 2 hours a week. I have learned that our lives are a reflection of our daily actions. If you want a new life, a better life, you have to change the small actions you take everyday.
I have been where you are, and I know what it takes to recapture your health. If you need your mojo back, I can help.
