LifeStories

Matt M.
It's now January 2021 and I have lost well over 40 lbs and my physique is better than ever. I feel I have the framework and the support system now to stay on track to ensure I keep my health and fitness top of mind.
In 2019 I had completely lost sight of my health and fitness: I stopped working out; I overate; and I gained 40 lbs. Intense work demands and multiple life pressures had become so overwhelming that my health and fitness took a back seat. When 2020 came around, I was determined to turn this around. I started the year out strong - working out, eating right - but then COVID hit. Everything got off-balance again and I gained another 15 lbs. I felt terrible, unhealthy and full of shame: I had let myself go and I needed to get back on track.

Then LifeStart offered virtual personal training in May 2020 and I signed up immediately. To my pleasant surprise, one of my former trainers, Jen Jessee, reached out right away and we started working out twice weekly. Our virtual strength training workouts, coupled with having an accountability buddy like her, so helped me to transform. Slowly but surely over 2020 I started making healthier lifestyle choices: I made home cooked meals; started tracking calories again; I cut back on my alcohol consumption; and when it was safe, went back to the gym to incorporate even more cardio and weight training into my weekly workout routine.

It’s now January 2021 and I have lost well over 40 lbs and my physique is better than ever. I feel I have the framework and the support system now to stay on track to ensure I keep my health and fitness top of mind.

In the end, I could have let COVID stop me from reaching my health goals - but I didn’t allow that to happen. I used this unique opportunity as a time to look inward and focus on my own well-being, mental health and fitness needs. I am so grateful to Jen and the LifeStart team for adapting so elegantly during this crisis.

It’s been a godsend, and I’m happier and healthier than ever before. Thank you!
