I wanted to highlight one of my client’s progress:

Nancy has been training with me for about 10 months now, although I’ve been trying to get her to let me put pictures on here for months!

She’s been able to do a couple cool things of late, such as push-ups for the first time:


She is also in the race to be my first girl chin-upper and is ohhhh so close to it. Just needs a little more range of motion at the bottom:


Then, through some sensible eating strategies, such as a weekly cheat day allowing her to indulge in her rice crispy love affair, she’s lost nearly 20 lbs too.

20lbs and many push-ups and chin-ups later

As you can tell from the above videos, Nancy has not been doing any of the classical “toning” crap. She has been doing plenty of exercises below 10 reps. The lifting of any pink dumbbells is no where to be found.

Congratulations on all your progress so far Nancy. You look great!
