Here are just a few of our success stories. Will you be next?
When my husband and I started the 8 Week Challenge, we were, as expected, nervous and apprehensive. People told us we were extremists and that we would never get through the 8 weeks. But what got us through to the very last day was the support and constant motivation from Mike and Emily.
They showed us that they were dedicated to each one of us and our progress. When we had setbacks, they found ways to help us turn them into extra motivation. The program not only helped us lose weight, BF and inches, it helped us completely rethink the way we eat.
What SDPT gave us was invaluable and unlike what you would get from a challenging program that offers results. It gave us the tools we need to change our lifestyle to be healthier people inside and out. My husband and I will definitely be joining the challenge again.
I encourage anyone looking to change their life FOR GOOD to give it a try.
I always wanted to lose weight, who doesn’t right? I wanted to be one of the hundreds of people jogging and cycling along the Carlsbad coast every Saturday morning. Four years later I found myself not making any progress.
During the 2016 Christmas holiday season, two relatives had medical issues that made me realize that I need to get moving and make a change towards a healthier lifestyle. At the time, I was wearing size 38 pants, XXL shirts, and weighed 231.5 lbs.
Thanks to San Diego Premier Training and the 8-week challenge I changed the “want” to “doing” and I have never felt better.
The 8-week challenge provided me everything that I needed to be successful with weight loss including nutritional guidance, small group exercise classes, a convenient and clean studio, and a community of great people and trainers who are fun, friendly, encouraging and welcoming.
I was successful on the 8-week challenge due to the support system of the SDPT trainers and the encouragement of the SDPT member community. I lost 23.5 lbs., 9 inches, and 5% body fat. This is certainly not the most weight lost on the program but for me, a barely active 45-year-old that spends 8 hours a day at a desk, it is a huge transformation.
The nutritional guidance was very easy to follow and included a sample meal plan and several recipes. The biggest “ah ha” moments for me was learning the correct portion sizes and taking the time to chew your food. I simply did not realize how much and fast I was eating despite thinking it was healthy.
During the 8-week challenge, you use an app called Habit Catalyst which I found to be amazingly helpful. Every day you receive a small challenge or helpful lesson that provides informative explanations or encouragement. The daily messages helped me to be accountable and as the name suggests get into the habit of making healthier decisions.
The small group metabolic strength and conditioning classes were ideal for me. The boot camp style workouts are always different and challenging. Each exercise is demonstrated by the trainer so you understand each movement and what muscle(s) you are working. If you have an injury or can’t do a specific exercise the trainer will provide you with an exercise modification. The studio has enough equipment to accommodate every fitness and experience level so if the exercise is too hard or easy you can modify.
The trainers at San Diego Premier Training are all great. Each trainer provides expert instruction, advice, and as you would expect motivation and encouragement to do the best you can. I want to thank Mike, Emily, Nate, and Katie for helping me in my journey to a healthier self.
