Over the years Jeff has struggled with his weight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, & high ALT. Earlier in 2018, he had some blood work done revealing that it was time to take his health seriously. He was showing glucose levels & biomarkers exceeding healthy levels.
In May, Jeff decided to schedule a FREE Intro. He had heard good things from a friend and wanted to give it a try. During Jeff’s first personal training session, we went through a benchmark movement assessment – 500m Row, 40 Air Squats, 30 Sit-ups & 20 Push-ups. At the end of this session, he knew this was exactly what he needed to make his health a priority.
We set a goal for Jeff to attend OC’s group training classes 3x a week
In August, we scheduled a baseline InBody Composition Analysis to learn how his body was changing beyond the scale. One month later, we scheduled a follow-up InBody appointment. Jeff showed up a little defeated for the second scan because his weight loss had plateaued. However, this InBody Composition Analysis revealed to us what the scale could not… he LOST 2.7% body FAT and GAINED 4-lbs of MUSCLE in 1 month! Jeff left feeling accomplished and even more motivated to be consistent with his training.
Jeff returned to his physician to have follow-up bloodwork done. Much to his surprise, his blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, triglycerides & LDL all reduced. The most significant change – and a major breakthrough – was that his elevated ALT level dropped from a very concerning & unhealthy level to a healthy normal range. Wow!
In 4 months (May-August), Jeff lost over 28-lbs!!! He’s been able to increase his training & started attending 4-5 classes a week.
Measuring results with InBody brings a sense of accomplishment and drives us to be motivated inside & outside of the gym.
