I did have a gym membership in the past, but there was never anyone there to motivate or encourage me to keep pushing myself. My experience with Sharon has been great. Joining her Boot Camp and MET classes was one of the smartest decisions I have made recently. I am proud of myself and my accomplishments, and I can not wait to see what the future holds.
Even with a few knee/hamstring problems, I have been able to attend class as Sharon has helped me modify the workouts. This is one of the main reasons I like working with Sharon. She really knows her clients and helps them meet their goals by working through small setbacks like injuries. I decided that I also needed help with my diet. I started following her meal planning. I have lost 40 lbs., dropped 7.3% bodyfat, and lowered my BMI by 5.6 points. Sharon is a great overall motivator.
Before working with Sharon, I tried Weight Watchers, the Atkins diet, and others which would give me very short term results but then I would go back to the old way of eating. This left me having trouble being energized, clothes would feel tight unless I upped the sizes with new ones, I had lower self esteem, and was always self-conscious of my weight. With Sharon's fitness and nutrition program, in just 5+ weeks, I have lost 20 pounds and 10-1/2"! I feel great and have reached a weight of under 200 pounds for the 1st time in at least 20 years. I have energy and feel great about myself. I’m not self-conscious about how I look, not afraid to wear tighter fitting clothes, and I also feel great all day long with energy to burn!
I am 54 years old, married with two grown sons and I work 50+ hours a week. I was already seeing the results from Metabolic Explosion Training class and decided to ask for help with nutrition. Prior to working with Sharon, I had tried Atkins, online Weight Watchers, and calorie counting with Fitness Pal but none worked in the long-term. This Meal Planning works because there are guidelines that make sense. It takes into consideration your activity level along with reasonable goals. What is the best part about working with Sharon? She is very supportive through MET and the Meal Planning. Even when you are having difficulty, she is a cheerleader. What is the worst part about working with Sharon? She is invested in your success so if you are looking for flexibility/leniency, she will not make it easy for you. It is still your choice but no absolution here! I wish I started the Meal Planning sooner. I like the way I feel and look - the best I have felt in years!
Before working with Sharon, I had hit a plateau that I could not overcome, causing me to continue trying different things with little to no success. Sharon’s program has helped me get back on track and set aside dedicated time for me. I have found that I now enjoy evening workouts. I'm a morning person and working out on the evening had always been a struggle. If I could talk with others who are facing the same struggles and frustrations that I was, I would say to find someone to get you going, like Sharon. Be patient with yourself and trust the process. In 12 weeks, I have lost 10 lbs. and 16", and my biggest win so far is liking my appearance more!
