"I am on a journey just like you"
September 2022, 325 lbs
My Inspiration: I've been over 300 lbs for 10 years. In January 2022 I started Keto*. I lost 15 lbs in one year - not very much. Then in January 2023 my weight and sedentary life caught up to me - I suffered from a massive disc herniation. Actually it's what's called a disc sequestration. A herniation is when the spongy disc between your vertebrae pops out and hits a nerve. Although very painfull, its not too bad if you rest and do some physical therapy. However, a disc sequestration is where part of the spongy disc actually breaks off inside your body. I had disc fragments floating around in my spine. The nuerosurgeon said I would need surgery. NOPE!! Not at 45 years old. One year later I've lost 65 lbs and am nearly 90% healed. I believe that with knowledge, discipline, and desire you too can change your life.
My Bio and Education: I've lived in Idaho since 1989. I became ISSA Personal Training certified in 2003. I worked for one year at Anytime Fitness. I graduated with an education degree from BSU in 2006. Since then I have been trying to lose weight and become a trainer again. I understand what it feels like to constantly fail. Now that I am older I understand people better. Along with my back injury I can relate to what people are going through much better than when I was in my 20's. I am a Christian. I eat a ketovore diet. I've been a driver education instructor for 13 years. I am currently certified through ISSA.
My training sessions are designed to educate and give you a simple, yet effective workout. I dont believe in complicated exercises you'll never do on your own.
Sessions are 1 to 2 hrs - whatever works with your schedule.
2 to 4 training sessions per week - 3 is optimal.
I can train from Monday to Friday 5:30am to 9pm,
Saturdays from 9am to 5pm.
*12 sessions (app. 1 month) - $600
18 sessions - $850 ($50 savings)
24 sessions - $1050 ($150 savings)
36 sessions (app. 3 months) - $1500 ($300 savings)
*Most gyms do not list the prices. This is because the cost is usually at least $75 per 1 hour session - ouch! Training should not be for the rich. My most expensive program is $50 per 1 to 2 hour session. And in training...cost does NOT equal quality.
Please call or text 208-863-4154. We can schedule a meet & greet to learn about the training benefits and learn about me.
