LifeStories

Todd C.
In August of 2018, I was down to 166 lbs with a 19% body weight loss.
I was always a relatively active person but at age 40 I broke both my tibia and fibula playing hockey. After the injury I seemed to find excuses to let my workouts slip. I was still skating but nowhere near the level I was accustomed to. I'm 5'9" and at the low point, I weighed in at 205 lbs. I decided I needed a change so I joined LifeStart.

I started by taking a group fitness class but was unable to finish it. It was a little embarrassing considering I was a triathlete not that long ago. Since starting this journey, I have graduated to taking classes 4 days/week at LifeStart and am a regular at Total Body Express, MyZone Boot Camp and Strength and Conditioning. The coaches at LifeStart including Eric, Jon, Kristin, Randi and now Molly have been the support and consistency I have needed to get back to where I need and want to be physically. In August of 2018, I was down to 166 lbs with a 19% body weight loss.

By no means am I suggesting this was easy. I have worked hard to get back to where I am and I honestly could not have achieved this level of success without the training staff and the other LifeStart members that have become my "family". I will forever be grateful for all they have done for me. I'm not done yet and have more goals in mind but I finally believe I am in a position where I can go out accomplish my goals.
We have many more LifeStories to share. Click here to view more stories of LifeStart members that have overcome adversity and reached their health goals!

Do you have a LifeStory to tell? Click here to submit your narrative of how you achieved lasting change, for example, by losing weight, building strength, or reaching a health goal. If we feature your story, we'll give you a LifeStart insulated bottle and a LifeStart t-shirt. And we'll enter you in a raffle to win a free Apple Watch at the end of the year!

More importantly, your story could inspire thousands of other LifeStart members to supercharge their own efforts to live life well!
