“Knowing doesn’t make a difference…
For as long as I can remember, I have known the secret to losing weight. It’s quite simple really, eat less exercise more. Said another way, burn more calories than you take in. However, as I get older (well over 40 is all I will say on that note), it seems that “knowing” doesn’t make a difference and burning calories takes much more work than consuming them. So despite regular gym visits, my weight and general well-being were continuing to slip. At times, it seemed like my body’s fate had been sealed…it was slowly transforming into the dreaded “Dad-bod”. Needless to say, something had to change. That was when I met Lynne Loiselle.
Understand that my goals didn’t (and still don’t) include making the cover of Men’s Health or winning some Mr. Universe title. Not at all…they were simple, I wanted to feel better (healthier) and reverse – or at least – slow the effects of ageing that I was currently experiencing. I wanted to turn this “Dad-bod” into something else. Anything else. Lynne was very empathetic and immediately seemed to know what I was getting at and agreed to take on the challenge.
Lynne also understands that life sometimes gets in the way. So while I try to get to the gym 4 or 5 times a week, sometimes it’s only two or three times. She gets that following a strict diet isn’t always practical – and more times than not, it’s about making the healthier (or least unhealthy) choice from the options you have. It’s that balance and realistic approach that make Lynne special and unique to work with.
I can’t say enough about how my life has changed in such a short time. My family and coworkers have noticed the change, and I have to say that I am very pleased with the results. Since working with Lynne, not only do I feel better, my clothes fit nicer – I have gone down two pant sizes – without changing my diet. I have more energy – except after a workout, then I am usually exhausted (only temporarily).
I highly recommend Lynne to anyone thinking about working with a personal trainer. The workouts are fun (okay, not always fun – but they are as fun as we make them) and challenging. She changes the routine up often enough that I don’t get bored, yet manages to maintain the focus on the areas that need attention and continues to develop and grow other areas.
So while knowing how to lose weight didn’t make a difference, knowing Lynne (and working with her) definitely did…and for that I am grateful.”
