LifeStories

Mark
Now that I’ve made it 3 months on this challenge as well as being an active member of the LifeStart gym since February I can confidently say this is my new life. My routine.
On the first of June 2017, I decided to make a life change. I was 263.6 lbs., 6’2” and had bad eating habits. I began a 3-month challenge to see how much weight I could lose by working out at least 5 days a week, as well as adding in some yoga to help strengthen my core and mental health. I changed my daily diet, I began following a Ketogenic diet where I eat 70% Fat, 20% Protein and 10%.

After 3 months, I can tell you it was a success. I’m now 220 lbs., 43 lbs. lighter and I have many to thank, LifeStart one of them. Mike Schwartz is always a smiling face and a great resource at our gym in Gallagher. He has helped point out new machines and helped me to check my biomedical screenings. Loukia Mastrodimos has been my yoga instructor at the Gallagher LifeStart gym, she has helped build up my core and balance over the past months. She’s always helping me to learn the next pose and build up my confidence. Finally, I must thank Arthur J. Gallagher, with this new benefit of the LifeStart Gym as well as the heathy meal options from Sodexo I have been able to make this transformational change in my life. The company has provided me the tools to make this lifestyle choice.

Now that I’ve made it 3 months on this challenge as well as being an active member of the LifeStart gym since February I can confidently say this is my new life. My routine. No longer a task or chore. It’s who I want to be: fit; healthy and stronger!
