I’m a month away from my 43rd birthday, and have spent most of my adult life overweight. I played sports, lifted weights, ran, and tried a fad diet. Despite doing all of these things, my body stubbornly remained 10% to 15% heavier than is recommended for my height, and I looked soft and pudgy.
Over a seven month period, I lost 25 pounds, and have kept it off for a year. My body composition has also changed significantly, such that I’m much less likely to cringe when I see myself in a change room mirror. It’s gratifying to be able to buy clothes that show my physique rather than hide it.
Marla’s coaching, training, and exercise program played a large part in my physical transformation. One can waste a lot of energy and effort at the gym when he doesn’t know what he’s doing. Years of working out with friends, reading books, and following along in fitness classes never yielded the results that I obtained from training with Marla.
Marla’s positive outlook, education, and experience make her a fantastic personal trainer. When I have questions about diet, how to avoid sports injuries, or how to train for a specific sport or event, she is the person I trust most to answer them. I feel better about how I look than I ever have, and she has played a larger role than anyone other than me in getting to that point.
Finally, to paint a picture for the men out there, Marla’s not hard on the eyes and has a bunch of hot chick clients that seem to train with her. The eye candy coming and going (who wants to look like a pussy in front of a pretty girl, I ask?) can give a guy his second wind and make him put an extra ten pounds on the bar or do a couple extra reps.
