“I have tried everything to lose but never had much success.”

Bev came to me looking to loose some weight, increase energy levels, be able to bend down and not loose her breath, and keep snoring to a minimum. This really resonated with me and gave me a sense of direction on how I can coach her hand in hand to reach her goals.

 

Lets hear from Bev.

June 1st- October 13th

I had a partial hysterectomy in 2010 and since then have done nothing but gain weight. I have tried everything to lose but never had much success.
At 56 years old, I realized that I had to do something because I could tell that I was starting to have issues with my health. I was getting short of breath very easily, even just to bend over and get something off of the floor gave me shortness of breath. I felt like I was starting to get what I assumed was gout in my left big toe area. I started snoring really bad and my husband had to move to a different bedroom to get sleep. Not only was I snoring but I was waking up from a dead sleep with what I thought might be sleep apnea.
I am 5’9″ so I carry my weight well but I had never been as heavy as I was in May 2016. It was time to take action.
My daughters best friend, Kelsey is a CrossFit Level Two Trainer. I had tried CrossFit before but it was just too difficult. I knew Kelsey well from all of the years of sports in school. She is very competitive and likes to win. I wanted to win too!! I talked to her about training me but was not sure that I could do cross-fit. I was in terrible shape, I can’t run and I’m 56!
She said she knew she could help me lose the weight I wanted to lose so I decided to give it a try.
I started training with Kelsey in June. She started me on a clean diet and when I wasn’t losing like I wanted or when I hit a plateau, she adjusted it for me. She is also a certified nutritionist. I am doing CrossFit but it’s a modified version, still very difficult/challenging but working. What I really like about Kelsey is that she pays a lot of attention to form and making sure I am doing the exercise correctly. That’s important to protect from injury and also get the most benefit. She also mixes it up and challenges me every session. When I don’t think I can go anymore, she encourages me to finish the task at hand.
When nothing else worked, this is working and I am now down 20 pounds since June 1. All of the symptoms I was experiencing like shout beds of breath, gout, snoring, etc…are gone! I look forward to my sessions with Kelsey because I know each time I go and bust my butt, I am that much closer to my 35 pound goal. I am training with Kelsey 3 days a week and walk at home 3 other days a week. On days that we can’t meet, Kelsey sends me a home work out that’s just as challenging as being in the gym.
I am excited about my weight loss so far. People are starting to notice and my clothes actually fit me right again. Thanks to Kelsey, I am on the right track once again.
