because the best coaches have personal experience. I understand you because I’m probably like you. I am over forty, have a family (look to the right), and work full time. I know exactly what you are going through because I went through it.
Even though I work in the fitness industry, there was a time when I was putting my health last. Before I knew it, I was 20 pounds overweight (see the before and after), unhappy, and embarrassed by my body. My quality of life was suffering and I needed to get back in shape.
Similar to you, I hate unrealistic, extreme and unsustainable workouts that leave me feeling like crap along with restrictive diets that give me a list of foods or even whole food groups to avoid. Yeah right! How long would anybody follow that? Extreme is just not sustainable.
Therefore, I did what I do best; I developed and followed my own plan.
