This weeks shout out goes to Nicholas Eadie! Here is Nick’s story
1.) Describe your fitness journey at Jada Blitz…what set’s Jada Blitz apart from other fitness facilities?
I started at Jada Blitz in February 2015 with the goal to lose weight and become a healthier version of myself. I have always tried to lose weight on my own but I didn’t have the knowledge on proper lifting technique or nutritional information. I knew a few other people who worked out at Jada Blitz and they had great results, so I thought I would give it a try. From the moment I had my first session with Justin, and then my regular trainer, Don, I could definitely feel the positive energy at Jada Blitz. All of the trainers are there to help motivate you to meet whatever goal you are trying to accomplish. I wasn’t sure how successful I would be since I haven’t seen good results in the past. But in just a short 6 months, I was able to lose over 40 lbs of fat and get both my cholesterol and blood pressure within healthy ranges. Without the motivation and knowledge from Don, I don’t think I would have gotten this far in such a short amount of time.
2.) What is your favorite body part to train?
My favorite body part to train is chest. When I started with Don, I could barely bench press anything. Now I am able to lift the most weight ever in my life and I can definitely feel an increase in strength while doing every day activities. I like working out my chest since I can feel my strength increasing. It has been my largest gain in strength since beginning my fitness journey. Who doesn’t love bench pressing a ton of weight!?
3.) What is your favorite go-to jam to get you pumped for a lifting session?
My favorite go to jam is Thunderstruck by AC/DC. Not sure why, maybe it’s the real heavy base but nothing gets me ready to lift heavy like that song does.
4.) What is your favorite pre-post workout meals?
My favorite pre-workout meal is a protein shake and some Chex cereal. I feel like it is a great combo to give me the necessary energy to power through a long workout. It’s also a tip I picked up from Don. My favorite post workout meal (besides another protein shake) is usually chicken, broccoli and a starch like a potato or rice.
5.) What is one attribute you love about your trainer?
One attribute I love about Don is that he is always working to make me better and to help me reach my goals. I know I can ask him for advice on anything relating to working out and he will have the answer. He is also a great motivator and doesn’t let me get down on myself if I’m having an off day. He is always pushing me forward. Without that push I wouldn’t have made it this far.
