Steve joined Focus Fitness right as we opened the doors in 2014. In fact, he would have trained with Dave sooner except he had no desire to workout in a big traditional gym with lots of other members. He sought a small, private space with a trainer who could focus on him and his goals. Steve had worked with other trainers before, but ultimately felt disappointed and discouraged. In fact, his former trainer would wander off to speak with other people.
Steve came to Focus looking to achieve his goals and be encouraged. He started with Focus after a recommendation from a friend who told him this would be different. “His friend was right!” Steve exclaims, “Focus tailored training programs to match my ability and I didn’t catch any flak for my wobbly performance getting there.”
Over the last two years, Steve has increased his commitment to Focus from once to twice to three time per week. And his results have sky-rocketed. His strength grows monthly and he can often be seen maxing out the sled while looking for volunteers to sit on top for the ride! While doing step-ups or the Ultimate Sandbag may not be his favorite, he willingly (if not begrudgingly) does them. Two years ago, he would never have imagined himself stating, “The programs are enjoyable and working out doesn’t get stale.”
Steve’s success has not been limited only to strength. His fat loss increases as he watches his weight loss slide. In his first year at Focus, he lost 10 pounds. Unfortunately, a few of those pounds found there way back. But since November 2015, he has been diligent and steadfast in implementing his workouts, taking his whey protein, and monitoring his intake with MyFitnessPal. Just last week he broke a milestone with 45 pounds total loss. And though his ultimate goal is slightly over halfway away, he says “I can’t believe it. I’m improving my life by doing this. I’m excited for the road ahead!”
We’re happy to help, Steve. Everyone at Focus loves you. We cannot tell you how many members comment, “I love Steve. He’s such a great guy!” They are all right! Thanks for your great attitude, hard work, and for being such a great member of Focus Fitness.
