6 months, by the numbers

Well, Friday marked our final workout with Forte Fitness and our main [workout] man Zach. For the record, we LOVE Zach (pictured here). He is kind, funny, smart as hell, encouraging, and nothing makes him smile like hearing where you hurt from the last workout. Yep, he’s everything we could have hoped for in a trainer. We couldn’t have done what we did without his help.

We did our first official workout with him on January 14th, and our last on July 26th. Here is our 6 month progress, by the numbers.

  1. w00t w00t!!!! Congratulations to both of you for being strong and persevering! I know full well myself that personal training at Forte is no walk in the park and takes commitment, willpower, and flexibility as much if not more than physical strength. Now comes the harder part — turning what you learned with the help of a coach into a sustainable lifestyle on your own. I have no doubt you’ll make the transition successfully, but don’t forget where your friends and supporters are if you need someone to lean on. There are days I think I have it down pat, and days I wonder what the heck I am doing…. Just remember that journaling is the key to success, and bring those calories up slowly!!! Best of success in all that comes ahead of you.
