I lost 20lbs and my clothes loosened in just four weeks

On June 6, 2007 I walked into my first LES MILLS class - BODYPUMP… I am now in the best shape of my life. My teenage boys cannot keep up with me and I feel great. My production at work has increased and I no longer suffer from mood swings. I am down to 185 lbs, have lost over 18 inches of fat and am starting to get a six pack.*

In January of 2007 I had a physical. I already knew I had type two diabetes and was getting it under control, but I was told my blood pressure was high - 150 over 90 - and my cholesterol was 450. I weighed 245 lbs and my waist was 38 inches. That was it - I had had enough. I wasn't going to take any medication so I joined Gold's Gym in Vestavia, Alabama in March 2007. I started out doing some weights and cardio.

One morning in June I saw a BODYPUMP class and thought, "that has got to hurt". On June 6, 2007 I walked into my first LES MILLS class - BODYPUMP. I have never been so sore in my life as I was the next day. Brushing my teeth was incredibly painful, but I was back in class the following week. After only four weeks I noticed all my clothes were starting to get very loose. I had lost almost 20 lbs. 

I just had another physical and all my blood work is back to normal. My doctor was shocked. The LES MILLS programs truly are the fastest way to lose weight and get into the best shape of your life. My teenage boys cannot keep up with me and I can do things now that I have not done since I was in my teens and early twenties. I feel great, my production at work has increased and I no longer suffer from mood swings. I am now down to 185 lbs have lost over 18 inches of fat, and am starting to get a six-pack.

I love hearing "Have you been working out?" "Man you have lost so much weight". I have now completed my BODYPUMP training and want to help others achieve their fitness goals. I guess I can say the LES MILLS programs have not only changed my life, but saved my life. Thank you to all my awesome instructors, and to Les Mills - Kia Kaha and never surrender.
