“I never dreaded coming to the gym. He made my workouts exciting. He even called and checked up on me. In 3 months time, I lost 50 pounds. I had new clothes, new self-esteem. It was amazing the effect that 50 pounds had on my outlook on life. ”
I have never felt better in my life. It started about 4 years ago this April. This story could begin “it was a dark and stormy night”….. My career was ready to take off, finally I was having conversations on a national level and one day someone said to me “you, should take better care of yourself”. I knew they were speaking of my weight. It may have been the biggest favor someone ever did for me, but the second had to be to tell me to not just join the gym – but get a trainer.
If you believe in “someone upstairs “ looking out for you – well then you will understand what I mean when I walked into the gym, needing to lose 75 pounds and out walks John Oliver.
John Oliver motivated me with such energy every single day. His knowledge about the muscles, diet, and exercise – was a training session for the body and brain. I never dreaded coming to the gym. He made my workouts exciting. He even called and checked up on me. In 3 months time, I lost 50 pounds. I had new clothes, new self-esteem. It was amazing the effect that 50 pounds had on my outlook on life. John had a banner made as I came to the gym that day, and the gym gave me a jacket. Did I work hard? You bet. Did I want to? You bet –the old – fashion way – eating right and exercise. John’s workouts were always fun, he made them that way. He gave me things to do when I was traveling even. He inspired me so much that I started a wellness program at work for all the employees and others started working out.
I think many people work-out, but it’s the resistance training that really helped me lose the weight and learning to use the machines with the correct form was key.
Years later now, John lives in another state – and I go to another gym – but the workouts with John were absolutely the greatest. When I get a chance, I always go visit John.
