Well in 4 months I'll be turning 54 yrs old . To be honest when I look at myself today I am most proud that I've survived this long
When I was young I thought I'd either be dead or in prison by age 30
I want to encourage all of you men out there that no matter where you are physically what ever your age , you can achieve physical health by making some changes in diet and by incorporating exercise into your life.
It's never too late nor is it impossible or time consuming
I met Shawn Johnson 8 months ago when I thought that I was in pretty good shape for my age.
At that time I worked out 6 days per week for a few hours per day but to be honest I was just in OK shape
Shawn put me through the paces by asking me what I wanted and if I wanted it, what was I willing to do to get it.
That simple....it was in me to answer the question honestly for only myself.
She said "if your willing to commit I'll help you get there but if your not willing to commit then I can't help you,nor do I want to help you, I only give my time to those who are serious"
Well I wanted to be my best so I followed her program which surprisingly reduced my time in the gym to 3 hours per week from the 12 hours I was putting in prior.
She gave me the tools to understand that what I ate would show up on my body either negatively as fat or positively as lean mean muscle
She taught me that I could eat more than I ever wanted and that I could have cheat days every week and still get the desired results.
I don't joke that within 6 weeks I went from 19.8% body fat to 9.2 % body fat , my waist dropped from a 34 to a 30 inch waist
Now do I mess up at times.... I'd be lying if I said that I did not . But for the first time in all my years of working out I learned the tools to success and sustainability
I'm writing this to thank her for being there not to hold my hand but to ask me the tough questions and to man up when I fuck up . I don't say thank you enough to her.
Cheers to Shawn and if you want to learn more check out shawnandanthonyfitness.com
