“Five Years Ago I Was Busy At Work And Thought That I Had No Time For Working Out…
I was constantly feeling tired and had back problem from sitting all day at work. In the evenings, I relieved my stress by rewarding myself with soft drinks and french fries.
One day Elisa persuaded me to go to a BodyPump lesson with her. I thought that it would be a piece of cake and loaded the bar with a bunch of heavy weights… but within half an hour I found myself on the floor, white as a ghost, taking the count. That was a real wake-up call for me. I realized that I was really out of shape and needed to do something about it or else I would soon be on a highway heading towards health problems caused by my unhealthy eating habits and sedentary lifestyle.
I’m an all-or-nothing kind of a guy, so I started working out at least five hours a week. In a short while I tried almost everything: I attended BodyPump lessons, followed by a period of pointless gym training, I even tried Zumba – once.
Mentally, I was feeling a lot better than before, but…
Despite Spending Hours In The Gym, I Wasn’t Seeing The Physical Changes In My Body That I Wanted.
Instead of building a proper strategy for getting in shape, I was trying out whatever someone suggested that I should do. I was a fitness wanderer, there’s no doubt about it.
At some point I ended up practicing olympic weightlifting with professional coaches for six months and learned a lot about my physique, the right training techniques, etc, but the problem was that both the gym training and the weightlifting took too much of my limited free time.
I was getting frustrated at my situation and started studying more on the subject of sports and nutrition. I realized that both my eating habits and the type of training that I did needed a change and then found out that by following the 7 Strategies of the Successfully Fit I could finally transform my life and my body. I ditched the french fries and soft drinks once and for all as I discovered that by combining proper diet with high-intensity interval workouts I was able to achieve amazing benefits.
Additionally, these lifestyle changes helped me to sleep better (I was no longer snoring at all!), which relieved my stress.
Within 6 Weeks I Lost 8 kg (17.6 lbs) And Dropped My Body Fat Percentage From 13% To 8%. I Was Full Of Energy And Feeling Confident.
I got another proof of the superiority of following the 7 strategies when I was persuaded to go running with a friend training for a marathon. I hadn’t run at all for many years, but had no trouble keeping up with my friend. We ran 20 km (12 miles) in 1h 45min!
Other people also noticed the change and I was frequently asked “How did you do it?”. My answer was always the same: “By becoming Successfully Fit!”.”
