A lot has changed over the past year and a half; I have changed a lot over the past year and a half. I’m not half the woman I used to be. It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for (in my personal opinion) the Ultimate Personal Trainer, AJ Garcia. I first met AJ in August of 2008; he had been assigned to me as part of a promotional introductory personal training session at a gym. I wasn’t looking for a personal trainer; I just wanted someone to show me how to use the gym equipment correctly. I hated the idea of being weighed and measured by anyone, let alone a male. I hated the fact that I had to tell him about my past struggles to loose weight. And although I had finally started on, what seemed like a good path to loosing weight, I hated the idea of having to tell him the details of my starting weight and eating behavior. But I knew I had to do it to get the proper assistance I needed. So I sucked it up, and gave it all a try. Strangely enough I didn’t feel uncomfortable with AJ in fact, I felt at ease with him. He managed to create a comfortable environment for me almost effortlessly. He asked what my ultimate weight loss goal was, what amount would I be comfortable weighing? I didn’t even know how to answer that. Truthfully, it had always seemed so unattainable. So he helped me create one, for my height and age we agreed that about 160 lbs. would be good. Wow to weigh 160 lbs???!!! That would put me at a weight loss of 167 lbs, I would literally have to loose over half of me. I set the goal blindly not really knowing what I was getting myself into. And not really taking myself too seriously either.
After my fourth and final introductory session with AJ he asked if I was interested in continuing to work with him. I had already started to see results progressing; therefore I thought maybe I could give it a try. How far could I really go with all this? After all, if I was going to spend my money on something, maybe my health and happiness wouldn’t be such a bad investment.
Jen lost over 60 pounds!
I've been attending feel the burn bootcamp for a year and a half and have seen amazing results. When I first started I was overweight and out of shape. A year and a half later, I have lost more than 50 pounds and am in the best shape of my life. AJ is a great trainer and knows how to motivate and push you to do things you thought you couldn't do. In October of 2011, I ran my first half marathon. Bootcamp got me into shape. The people at bootcamp are very supportive and motivating. They push you to keep going. So if you want to get into shape or lose weight, feel the burn bootcamp is where it begins.
