Very few people come into Club Sweat knowing exactly what they want.
When we sit down with a client for an initial consultation we tend to hear the same thing.” I want to be more toned, lose weight and have more energy”. Well, this wasn’t the case with Stu.
When Stu walked through the doors of Club Sweat he had his mindset on specific goals that he was determined to attack and there was no stopping this guy. Stu wanted to lose 61 pounds… not 60, 61! Rehab the shoulder he had damaged in a car accident that physio just wasn’t doing for him, and get rid of his nagging lower back pain by strengthening his core.
Because he wanted to be the best dad he could possibly be to his 3 kids, all while giving himself more confidence to take his Waste Disposal Business to the next level.
Fast forward 5 months and Stu is well on his way to accomplishing every goal he set out. First and foremost he’s been able to rehab his shoulder to the point where he has no pain and can finally put his arm over his head. He is down 30 pounds, and if you ever see a video of Stu holding a 1-minute plank with a 45lbs weight plate on his back it’s safe to say his core is STRONG!
But that’s not even the best part…
Stu’s newfound lifestyle has completely changed his life not only as an individual but as a father. His daughter has started attending karate classes (something that’s huge for a 13-year-old girl just entering her last year of middle school). His son Ben and him now do an “ab check weekly, and the biggest change for Stu has been his daily energy levels. He says he has more energy at work and even more energy when he gets home to play with the kids.
Dont kid yourself though. Stu story hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows. Stu runs a successful start-up all on his own which means early mornings and long long nights. On top of this, Stu’s wife suffers from debilitating headaches which sometimes leaves her bedridden for a couple of days which in turn leaves Stu as a single parent.
So what did Stu do to get through anything that stood in his way? He Doubled down on his workouts and added in an extra day. He knew that if he put himself first, pushed past some of his preconceived barriers, it would, in turn, make him successful in the endeavors which he has to take on every single day.
Stu still has another 30lbs to go to reach his goal but with the determination, perseverance, and will, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Stu is going to be successful doing anything he puts his mind to.
When you know “your why” it’s easy to accomplish anything you want in this life and Stu is living proof of that.
