Major Success at the Gym: Tom's Amazing Progress

After seeing this photo, Tom was motivated to hit the gym.

How was your overall experience?

Great!  I have felt welcome since stepping foot into gym day 1.  Everyone is super friendly and knowledgeable.

What was your motivation for making a change? 

The picture of me holding my son on his first birthday was one of my reasons for joining BRG.  I didn’t like what I saw and I was tired of being fat.  I knew I needed to make a change.

What did a normal day look like you before you started working out and then after you started working out at the gym? 

Tom in March versus Tom in August.

Before I started working out, a typical day consisted of me going to work (sitting at a desk), coming home and eating dinner with my family and then sitting on the couch all evening watching tv.  Before joining the gym, I didn’t think twice about how much movement or foods I had in a day.  Now, I go to the gym every day after work, I track all of my exercise and food, so I am aware of what how I am treating my body.

What kinds of exercises did you do, and what foods did you eat? 

I do the team training Monday – Thursday and strength training Friday – Sunday, with an occasional team training class on Saturdays.  I have cut out most of the processed foods I was eating before.  I eat a lot of chicken breast and vegetables.  I track all of my food with the My Fitness Pal app to make sure I stay in my targets calorie range each day.

These are the same jeans from the picture with Tom's son.

How long have you been at BRG, and who have you worked with? 

I have been at BRG for 7 months now.  The entire staff has been amazing and truly supportive of my progress.  I have worked with all of the trainers, and all of their unique talents have played a role in my success.
