Weight Loss Training Success Story – Shawn Fouladi
Utilizing the Best Weight Loss Training Program I lost over 100 pounds in 8 months!
Shawn’s personal journey in his own words…
In the Summer of 2011, I awoke up to a mind boggling number. When I saw “332” flash across my scale, my heart dropped. Large numbers on the scale were nothing new to me; as a teenager, I grew up eating very healthy portions of starchy carb-loaded foods — and by “healthy” I mean portions fit for an entire family, their neighbors, and their neighbor’s grandchildren. But never in my life did I expect to tip into the 300’s. It was a wake up call to say the least: soon 332 pounds would turn into 350, and 350 into 400. I was dying a very slow and painful death; with high blood pressure, asthma, and two parents who suffer from diabetes, it was only a matter of time before I became permanently hospitalized and immobile. That morning, I chose to take my life into my own hands: I walked into the Mount Vernon Athletic Club with one goal in mind: Success.
What’s Included in the the Customized Weight Loss Training Program?
Call it chance, fate, destiny, what-have-you: that summer MTVAC was running a “Largest Loser” contest utilizing their Maximum Results weight loss training program. Customized specifically for each new member it included individual Personal Training, a Polar Body Age fitness and nutrition plan and weekly Wellness check ups. Needless to say, I signed the dotted line faster than I could eat a double cheeseburger from MCD’s (don’t ask…it’s embarrassing). My new membership came with so much more than just access to a bonafide gym, racquet ball courts, and indoor tennis courts. The people here are world class. I was fitted with a personal trainer who took some preliminary notes about my overall health, and then designed a plan for me to ensure that my goal, SUCCESS, was to be achieved. I learned quickly that spending hours in the gym was pointless if I didn’t have proper nutrition to go along with it; the nutritional booklet I received was vital to my weight loss.
Atmosphere is Everything
Above all, MTVAC was my first choice not because of the great prices or great personal trainers, but because the atmosphere is second to none. There is nothing more intimidating to an overweight person than walking into a gym full of muscle heads grunting and having bicep competitions in the corner; it’s the reason I paid for a Gold’s membership the prior year and only went for a month. The members at MTVAC are your average hard working people — the local fire department works out here, students, parents, and even some children participating in camps.
Thank you MTVAC
Thanks to MTVAC, their customized weight loss training program, and the wonderful support system they have in place, I lost over 100 pounds in 8 months. My life is finally in my control. For those of you who still are skeptical about joining the best gym in our area, I can assure you, the only things you will lose are your insecurities…and all that weight! MTVAC not only saved my life, it helped me start living it. For that I am forever grateful.
