So far I’ve lost 60 pounds!

I love the fact that Karen and Anthony are such great cheerleaders and motivators. You can tell how much they enjoy working together and they make you feel like you’re part of their team. This inspires me to always put forth my best effort in my eating and exercise. I workout with Anthony twice a week after work. Some days I get there after a tough day and it’s the last place I want to be but I ALWAYS leave feeling totally positive and invigorated with all stress obliterated!

The best thing about the nutritional program is that it is easy to track and stick to. I love the fact that you have a splurge meal to look forward to every week and I don’t eat anything that I don’t totally enjoy. This is a program that I will have no problem living with for the rest of my life. I’ve never felt better!

When I began with Karen, I was feeling old, tired and frumpy and in desperate need of a change. I always try and maintain a positive outlook but at that time I was 53 and the future was not looking very bright. I was on blood pressure and cholesterol meds and feeling like I was definitely going in the wrong direction. I hoped that by some miracle I might lose 50 pounds and although I wanted to get down to the size I was when I met my husband, I was willing to settle for less; even just getting out of the “fat lady” clothes! Then I started the program, exercising on my own and was amazed at how quickly I was able to lose! I was slightly terrified at the thought of working out with a professional body builder (Anthony) but I summoned all my courage and signed up for a class. I am so glad I did! Anthony is wonderful at working within my limitations due to some arthritis but still pushing me and the others he trains to discover our hidden potential, pushing us to do more than we ever thought we could and feel proud of the athlete within us! I have been working with Karen for 8 months and Anthony for 7 months, am no longer on BP or Cholesterol meds, and have NEVER FELT BETTER! (Or looked better, for that matter!) I am 54 and love my new body shape. I have lost over 60 pounds and gained a sense of pride and confidence that extends far beyond the gym. I now feel I am capable of doing anything that I set my mind to in work and my personal life and doing it well! Having pride and confidence in myself makes it easier for me to appreciate others around me and be a positive influence in all situations. I never thought I had time to go to the gym or work out on a regular basis but have found that by making my health a priority, I actually have more time and energy for the people around me and activities I love. I look forward to maintaining an active life long into the future! Thank you, Team Monetti!
