June 2012 Fitness Success Story

We have lots of couples who work out together. They motivate each other to stay on track. And it’s not only married couples, but friends, neighbors, parent/child combinations…working out with a partner is beneficial in so many ways.

Kyle & Wendy from Plano, TX are on the way to reaching their health & fitness goals together! See what they had to say when Curt interviewed them as our June 2012 Clients of the Month! (If you’d like to read the interview, please see below the video for the transcript.)

Kyle:
Hi, I’m Kyle from Plano.

Wendy:
And Wendy from Plano.

Kyle:
Before we started training, I wasn’t very active, just did a few things tgo get active. My weight probably wasn’t where I wanted it to be, but I wasn’t highly motivated to do anything about it. But then there were a few health things that kind of got my attention, got her attention to say, maybe we should do something different.

Wendy:
For me, every spring I would go through the “Okay, I’ve got to run on the treadmill, I’ve got to do all sorts of exercises to get ready for shorts season and swimsuit season,” and it just started to get harder as we’ve gotten older. So we said, you know what, we need to get on a program and really be serious about getting back in shape.

We asked our doctor, “Hey, who can you recommend?” and she recommended New Wave Fitness, because she utilizes New Wave Fitness. We’ve been very happy about the decision.

Kyle:
My pants were probably pushing size 40 waist. I had pants that I coudlnt’ wear beause they were too tight. I can now wear those pants. They’re probably size 38, I think, in the little time we’ve been working out.

Wendy:
Actually they’re faling off too!

Kyle:
Yeah, I can wear pants I couldn’t wear before. Some things we joked about when we went and got some weight equipment—there were some of the weights, the dumbbells we picked up, and it was like, there’s no way. I can’t see myself using this for anything. And I’m already using some of the larger dumbbells that I had no idea I’d be able to use from a strength standpoint. So there are just a couple things I’ve noticed in just the short amount of time we’ve been working out.

I’ve lost about 30 pounds so far, roughly. It may be slightly more than that because I’ve added back a couple pounds of muscle so far. So it’s going with what our goals are, to lose around 40-45 pounds of weight and then add back about 15 pounds of muscle, so we’re on our way to getting that muscle back.

Wendy:
My pants were getting tight and I said I’m absolutely not going to buy a bigger size, so my goal was lose some weight and tone and boy, it came off much faster than we thought, and the toning really made a difference. We joke because both of us—our pants are falling off. We’re like, “We’ve got to buy new pants, we’ve got to buy new shorts.” So it’s made a big difference.

We can tell the difference just in the way that our clothes fit and the responses that we’re getting from our friends.

Kyle:
Yeah, a lot of people have commented how my face looks a lot thinner. She said it looks younger, which is good.

New Wave Fitness:
Right. It’s always good to be younger!

Wendy:
The other thing that was neat too that New Wave Fitness does that really helped us too is at the beginning, we have to write out names of our friends so that you guys can send them progress reports on how we’re doing. So our accountability buddies have been very helpful too, telling us, “Hey, keep going, keep going. You guys are doing great.” It makes a big difference.

Kyle:
Offering support for anything we need help with. They say, “We’ll help you.” When we first met with Hut at the beginning, he asked us what was our commitment level. I was totally honest and said I was probably a 6 or a 7. It was like, “Let’s see.” I wasn’t highly motivated to do anything, but yet wanted to do something and just needed a nudge.

 

Wendy:
I was the nudge. I signed him up.

Kyle:
She was the nudge, yes. I think the biggest advice: The hardest thing is to start. Once we started and then I started to see, okay, yeah, this isn’t maybe as hard as I thought it would be. It just took some discipline to get going and then you see things begin to happen in a good way.

You’ve got to get started. Once you start, it’s easy to do things the right way and just keep going. That initial nudge is the thing—you’ve just got to get up and do something. I think that would be the biggest advice, is to start and then see where it takes you.

Wendy:
And it is so much better doing it with a trainer versus trying to do it on your own. He makes sure that we focus on the right things.

Kyle:
Getting the guidance from David, our trainer—that’s the thing that I think is pushing it over the top, that additional knowledge that they have, what they can tell us, how to do it so that over the long haul, we can do it ourselves. We can remember how to do it and it doesn’t require us to go, “What do I do? How am I supposed to do this?” We know how to do it because he teaches us along the way.
