My favorite client story

One of my past clients came to me to lose weight and tone her body. She was an avid walker and loved to walk in 5 mile races thru out NJ. She went to one 5 mile race and realized that she was the only overweight person in the race. When the race began, she quickly fell behind. So far behind that they began picking up cones as she pass them. Suddenly she heard music playing from behind her as she walk. It was a police car playing Eye of Tiger and I will Survive as she walk the 5 mile race! She said she felt so much joy and appreciation for finishing the race!
