Disclaimer: Results may vary and depend on client's individual commitment to exercise and diet. Only you can determine how well you will succeed, and no supplement or magic pill will achieve this for you in the end. And once you arrive at that goal then how will you stay there? Only you can determine this answer. My job is to help you find those answers!
Christine changes so quickly now, I need to upload another version so I can show the changes! What's the key to her changes? Consistency--treat your workout like you would your work/job, show up for every workout and give it your best. Then, treat your diet like it's your fuel for your car that gets you to your job--it's what carries you everywhere you go. Without it, you couldn't get there.
I love this photo of my client Nelson and his son!
Nelson started working with me in September of 2019. He took the second photo in mid January, 2020,
He has been steadily losing weight. He’s a super hard worker, never misses a workout and is very focused!
What does it take to make this type of change? A lot of people think it’s exercising like crazy, but the reality is it’s mostly what you eat. Nelson said he got interested in both diet and exercise and how they affect weight when he listened to a podcast one day(Science Vs Exercise: Fat Buster or Belly Flop) and something clicked for him. He uses the app MyFitnessPal daily to track his calories, and since I “follow” him on the app I can attest to the fact he logs in everyday. Each day he prepares his own meals and only goes off his program for special occasions, AND he made it through the holidays with pretty much no weight gain!
Let’s face it, if you don’t have your diet under control, it will be hard to get the weight off no matter how much you exercise. However, let’s not underestimate the power of what exercise can do for you. Exercise truly IS medicine! It significantly improves heart health, helps control blood sugar levels, cholesterol, brain health, and has even shown to ward off certain types of cancer.
Last but not least it can tone up a body after weight loss by building muscle. My clients often tell me how surprised they are when they discover how much easier activities of daily living are after working out for a few months consistently, or how it can actually alleviate tight muscles from too much sitting behind a work desk or on a plane. Remember: Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being while methodical physical exercise saves and preserves it!
Below is Justin before he went off to dental school. He wanted to lose some weight and get strong before he hit the books again!
This is Laura below. See her review below the photos. These pictures are from when she first started with me, and then when she ran her first half marathon. I am so proud of her!
For more about Kris' journey, read her story on this link, cut and paste this link:
This is Linda Baysari. When she started working with me, she didn't want to show her face because she was embarrassed about weight gain. She has a much better attitude now! Just be happy with who you are, as long as you are healthy, and feel good! Linda is in her 60s and looking better than ever!
Kellie lost 10 lbs!
Terry was another client I featured in one of my sidebar stories. He had terrible gout, and completely changed his diet and exercise routine! Made a difference didn't it? Here is a link to the story about Terry, you will need to cut and paste:
Bob Browning was my client for awhile, and mostly wanted to lose weight, but one day we decided to focus on his arms. In less than 3 months we saw these results!
Above are a few more girls...not great shots but you get the picture! Wearing my shirts on a group run in the middle pic:-)
Here are a few more testimonials:
"Hi Monica! Just hung up my bib and medal from a 15k this weekend! Every time I hang a new bib on this wall, I think of you and how your training taught and proved to me that I could do anything. Remember when you started with me? I couldn't run 2 minutes much less 2 miles. I have hundreds of miles on the wall now. I think of you often and just want you to know how thankful I am for the foundation that your training built for me. I hope you and your boys are well - Brandie "
"Monica, John and I so appreciate you and all the gifts you have brought to our lives. Thank you for being you and believing in me when at times, I don't believe in my self. I am so exited to continue on my health journey with you!! John and I thank you so much!

"Monica came into my life in July 2014 and I don't think she has any idea how much she has changed it. I was struggling with my confidence partially because I didn't like the way I looked anymore. I had always been athletic and in shape until I had two kids and there just wasn't enough time anymore. Having Monica come to my home was exactly what I needed. She pushed me beyond what I though I was capable of and encouraged me the whole way through. I had people telling me "wow, you look great! What are you doing?" I even had a complete stranged walk up to me while my husband I were taking a walk and say "Now you're in shape. You look amazing. I want to look like you." I bragged to her about Monica of course. I walked around with a smile on face for the rest of the day. Thank you Monica for helping me accomplish my health and fitness goals and giving me back my confidence. I will be forever grateful. Thank you again for pushing me! It's exactly what I needed. Monika"
