I could visualize my progress

Shortness of breath, plantar fasciitis, joint pain, hypercholesterolemia, etc.; the diagnosis was pretty bleak. To top it off, I had a hard time tying my own shoes or finding clothes that fit.

I had had enough with the consequences of being overweight. I had unsuccessfully tried losing weight by walking and following Canada’s Food Guide, and I needed a real solution. A television advertisement of people’s physical transformations caught my attention. I signed up for a membership at this fitness centre with the conviction that this was exactly what I needed, and it proved to be true. I had a wonderful trainer-nutritionist team to back me up. They created a plan adapted to my physical condition and my injuries. I first signed up for a 6-month transformation plan, with 40 pounds to lose. With encouragement from my coaches, I was able to stay motivated throughout this period. The impedance tests also contributed greatly to my motivation. These tests are much better than a simple scale, as they allow you to track changes in your body composition. They enabled me to visualize how much fat I was losing and how much muscle I was building, and this was the best source of motivation for me.

Results: through lots of efforts and tenacity, I was able to rise beyond the challenge, as I still exercise to this day. One year after starting the program, I have lost 46 pounds. My hypercholesterolemia medication has been lowered, and I dropped 3 dress sizes. I am bursting with energy and proud of my success. Now, my new challenge consists of maintaining my new habits and avoiding any excess, one day at a time.

Les Enformidables

LES ENFORMIDABLES, ce sont des gens qui un jour ont pris la décision de mettre leur santé en priorité et de se prendre en main. À travers leurs témoignages, ils nous racontent leurs histoires, leurs cheminements et leurs réussites. Ce sont des gens en forme. Ce qui les rend formidables, c’est qu’ils ont accompli une chose importante : sortir de la sédentarité. Mais le plus important, c’est que leurs exploits, petits ou grands, qu’ils sont fiers de partager avec nous, puissent nous inspirer pour que nous devenions à notre tour des êtres ENFORMIDABLES.
