Once upon a time there was this boy who loved food and beer… however, this boy’s pants were starting to feel very tight. This boy’s name was Chris. I am this boy. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I had been working out sporadically with about 50 Workout DVDs over a span of 2 years. The first year was great. But then, I got tired and bored of the DVDs. I spent more time watching and fast-forwarding the DVDs than working out. I was eating food that was not healthy. Drinking high calorie drinks that were even worse. I was the heaviest I have ever been and we hadn’t even started the holiday season, which was sure to be a weight gainer. I had to do something soon!
Then an early Christmas miracle occurred. In September 2014, a new gym was born in my neighborhood. I had no excuse. Peak Performance was promoting on Facebook with a deal I couldn’t refuse! I signed up for a bootcamp class that started my journey into a healthy and fit lifestyle.
After a tough few months of eating nothing but Kale (*Editor’s note: He’s joking…I think!) and going through 3 group training sessions and personal training 2 times a week, I HAVE LOST OVER 20 LBS. I’VE HIT A PERSONAL RECORD ON DEADLIFT OF 330LBS so far and will surpass that real soon. I am never bored and I have a great time every time I go!
