30 minutes is all you need to transform your body.
Below is the 4 month transformation of Nick. He worked out three times per week for 30 minutes with a trainer and followed our dietary advice. His amazing results are below.
With a baby on the way, soon-to-be dad, Nick, decided to start going to his local gym and working out on his own, but with his increased activity, Nick unknowingly increased his intake and soon began gaining weight. Nick decided to seek out the assistance of Earl, a personal trainer at E3 Strength. With Earl’s coaching, both in the gym and in the kitchen, Nick lost 15lbs and 11.8% body fat.
Strength training makes you lean
This graph indicates that even though body fat decreased, muscle mass increased and was maintained. It is due to the increased muscle mass speeding up the metabolism, that directly correlates to the decrease in fat mass. A 23.42lb loss in pure fat, to be exact!
Both weight and Body fat are steadily decreasing
This steady loss lead us to increase the macronutrients, after our last check-in, for fats and proteins to ensure Nick maintains his desired weight of 160lbs.
Below you will find the 75lb transformation of one of my best clients.
Weight when I met Earl: 148
My weight now: 130
Kim wrote the following about her experience training with us; her current program is below:
What does it really take to lose those pregnancy pounds? Diet, exercise and E3! I have been an athlete all of my life. Before having kids I ran multiple half marathons, completed the arduous Mount Washington road race and completed two marathons. I thought I knew how to work out but after having my second son, my trips to the gym were not cutting it. I was struggling to lose the baby weight until I met E3. I had a C-section delivery so I had to ease back into using my stomach muscles. E3 is extremely knowledgeable and helped guide me through listening to my body and strengthening my abs again. E3 showed me how to eat right and how to work out properly. I learned how to do plyometrics and lift weights with proper form. E3 also helped me to calculate my heart rate so that I burned fat during my cardio sessions and not muscle. I started shedding the pounds immediately. If you do exactly what E3 tells you, YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT! I loved their workout style—they mean business! I was never bored. I was always challenged and I left their sessions feeling rejuvenated. Thank you E3!
Below is the program Kim is now following:
Individuals with debilitating neurodegenerative disorders typically do not weight train. These individuals generally lose strength and coordination, leading to a loss of independence.
Not Mr. T! This gentleman came to me a few years back, diagnosed with Kennedy’s Disease, a form of muscular dystrophy with the characteristics listed above. Mr. T was an athlete upon his diagnosis and would not let anything stop that. Through positivity and goal setting, we never looked at what he couldn’t do, but took pride in what he could and made it our priority to look to the next accolade (weight, rep, set, workout). This vision allowed us to overcome all odds and make the progress that his doctors and peers found hard to believe.
Mr. T focused on machines and would train vigorously despite an inability to coordinate his muscles due to the degeneration of motor neurons. In terms of a trainer, Mr. T could have done well with a spotter, but to his benefit and mine, our paths crossed. We began slow, with basic lifts and minimal weight. We planned weeks ahead based on the day’s performance, always preparing to do just a little bit better with every workout. Together we cultivated positivity and vision. Without my push Mr. T completed three marathons on his hand cycle during our tenure. Once his endurance training was completed, his progress in the gym increased significantly. Over a 10 month span, Mr. T increased his incline dumbbell bench press from 15lbs to 35lbs (per dumbbell!!). He now is able to overhead press 10lb dumbbells with no assistance (most Kennedy’s patients cant’s lift their hands above their head!). He is truly incredible.
The progress I have seen in Mr. T is unlike that of most clients. He has done what most doctors have said was impossible. The credit belongs not to he or I, but to the attitude we were able to create. Never look back. Take pride in where, what, and who you are. Set the bar daily. When the next day comes you will always clear that hurtle.
Experts say, there is no therapy for this disease. To that and all of life’s other problems: bring them to the gym; bring them to E3!
