Chef B-Rizzle Set #2 – Why a Trainer?

IMG_9105What made you decide to hire a personal trainer?
Since I have struggled with my weight most of my life, I have never been comfortable working out at public gyms.  Besides being self-conscious about working out in public,  I thought the personal attention of a trainer would help me to learn what I needed to change to be successful and build a healthier lifestyle.  The positive motivation, exercises, and nutrition coaching with Coach Rob are personally adapted for me.  Having a personal trainer has helped me to sustain long term progress, commitment to our plan, and it definitely helps knowing that I have an accountability partner!

At my heaviest my doctor told me I was over 100 pounds overweight and it clearly had a severe negative impact on my health. I had high blood pressure, vertigo, sleep apnea, and terrible migraine headaches.  Any one of these ailments would leave me debilitated anywhere from a few hours to several days. After trying multiple treatment plans, doctors, specialists, a briefcase full of medications, and seeking care at Stanford Medical Center, I realized I needed to invest in my health and completely overhaul my lifestyle. 

IMG_2543I was referred to Rob and after our first meeting, I knew he was a perfect fit! His calm, positive demeanor, and his ability to understand my apprehension about working out due to my health issues was key.  Approximately 5 years before I met Rob, I was successful in losing and maintaining a 90 pound weight loss, but as many of us do, I lost the weight the wrong way. Coach Rob took the time to explain a plan that would generate slow and steady progress.   The right way! 

IMG_5133To say my first day working out with Rob was a out of my comfort zone, is a total and complete understatement.   I was comfortable in the gym because I was the only one working out, but it had been so long since I worked out that I threw up at the end of my work out. Somehow, Rob put a positive spin on me puking my guts out and I have been showing up ever since! 

10 Years of SYNERGY!

IMG_6196Steve Jobs, Maya Angelou, Confucius, and the Bible all preach the benefits of creating a career around what you love and your unique God-given talent.  The trainers at Synergy put this philosophy in practice every day!  Our days are fueled by the passion for what we do and sharing our gifts with our community.

At the end of May, we (Walt, Andre, Jacky, Eugene, Aaron, Allen, Rich, and I) celebrated a milestone for any business, 10 years of changing lives and helping people become healthier.

We train hard and push our clients to be a better version of themselves but… you know what they say about all work and no play.  We train hard and we know how to play hard!!!

In the words of Confucius, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”  Thank you to everyone for sharing in our love of fitness.

Cheers to another 10 years! BAM!!!
