My favorite client story

A 24 year old female client came to me wanting to lose weight. At over 250lbs., she knew that her health was not adequate to someday bear children and live a long life. She was not able to do much cardio at all, without getting winded and frustrated. She trained at Lucky13Fitness 3 days per week, and worked on behavior modification of her diet, sleep, and stress levels. In one year, she lost well over 50lbs. and has picked up running as her passion. She went from not being able to run for 5 minutes, to completing everything from a 5k to a half marathon. She is currently training for her first full marathon, while maintaining all the healthy choices she learned to incorporate at Lucky13.

My favorite exercise

My favorite exercise is the deadlift. To a beginner it can seem like a complex move that may be nearly impossible. But when it is deconstructed, and the "parts" are taught to clients as the progress, it is one of the most effective and efficient lifts. It works the entire body, and forces the client to be totally mentally present while doing so. Plus, it gives people a great behind!!!
