My story began just over a year ago at Jada Blitz. All it took was one class, and I knew that joining this gym was going to my new home away from home. It also didn’t hurt that they have a black lab, Tucker that roams around while you’re there. I first started with a few classes, but soon knew I needed one on one training to help with my weight. I first started with Hailey, she was great. She put me into a weekly routine and would discuss what macros are and why this is something I need to try. Soon after she left I started to train with Dan. Dan is, for sure, my other half at Jada and I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. He doesn’t take my crap, pushes me to do more, and even follows up with me on my days off. I cannot thank him enough for his patience, knowledge, and friendship. Soon after working with Dan I started my Macro journey with Stephanie. This is where things really started to change for me mentally. She customized my numbers to fit my lifestyle, where I can still enjoy going out to eat and drink, have the foods I love, yet consistently lose weight at the same time. This for me became a way of life and there is no looking back. When I have my bad days she already knows what’s going on even before I say anything. To have a coach go through exactly what you are currently going through makes all the difference. To date I’ve burned 37 lbs off with a goal of 23 more to go. I hate the word lose in this case as I don’t plan on finding the 37+ lbs again. Thank you Dan, Steph, and the Jada family for welcoming me!
