I just want to thank you both (and Swati) for the continued support and encouragement throughout my first 13 week challenge at Titan Up Fitness. I think just signing up was the most intimidating part of the whole process (we won’t count my first “step-up” when I fell off the bench on number 3!).
From that moment on I’ll use Andy’s key term for me, “It’s ok, we will just modify a bit”. Thereafter I felt a little more confident each day. At first I thought I’d just come a few days a week to ease into it. I found myself wanting to get up for those 5:30am classes and Francis was so encouraging in the evening classes pushing me to do just one more (with a smile of course). Each day was so different and I didn’t want to miss out. So there was plenty of encouraging accountability.
Even though I’m definitely older than the majority of the members it made it more challenging and each week I was improving, able to do more reps, less modification and just overall had a good feeling. After just a few weeks I could tell a difference in my clothes. My co-workers forced me to weigh in and I was down 15 pounds. I really couldn’t believe it and thought to myself “all this in such a short time and it only takes 4-5 hours a week”.
Well at the end of the 13 weeks here are the summarized results:
Weight (lbs) 30.8
Body Fat 4%
Fat weight (lbs) 20.8
Chest, back, leg, hips
Thigh, waist, calf (inches) 23.90
I’ll have to say, not knowing what to expect, I was very happy with my results. Probably not as excited as Andy/Francis until they explained how successful those results were. In any event, I feel great and am looking forward to the next 13 week challenge. If I can do this in only 4-5 hours per week, I guarantee almost anyone can.
Thanks for such a great program. I wish you all continued success.
