One year ago Brandi Laughlin walked in our doors and wanted to essentially compete bikini competition within one year’s time.
She had already lost about 60 pounds on her own through making better eating choices, running for the past five years, and had just really started getting into lifting weights; but she even testified that she wasn’t quite sure if she was doing everything correctly.
After spending more time talking to her I realize that she had actually taken care of a lot of the hard things its comes to when training someone. Things such as hormonal imbalances, changing lifestyle habits, ridding the notion that the number on the scale is a reflection of her health and fitness, etc…
Those make a trainers job a lot easier since we have to spend quite a bit of our time coaching, not just the education process that goes with exercising and diet, but coaching a person to transition to healthier habits that lead to their end goal.
After our conversation and movement assessment I decided to treat this as we were going to start from the ground up, other words a clean slate.
