How Trish Lost 68 lbs Through Fit Fun Bootcamps


Trish before starting Fit Fun Bootcamp

Sometimes I work with people who are literally in life or death situations; they are ticking time bombs waiting to go off.  1 year ago, I met Trish, a morbidly obese woman with a willingness and excitement about learning and working hard.  She has absorbed everything I have taught her by participating in my grocery tours, bootcamps, and everything else I have offered.  It has been pure joy to watch Trish transform as a person.

Learn more about Trish’s story and her sister in this post I did awhile back.

Trish is an amazing woman who came to bootcamp with a major motivator— her sister was extremely sick with late stage breast cancer.  Trish began researching the role diet plays in disease, particularly in cancer.  Many days Trish does “doublers” (two bootcamps back to back with no rest) and always keeps the group laughing with her outgoing personality.

Trish has lost 68 lbs. and 8 inches off her waist.  More importantly than the numbers is how incredibly fit she is now.  She came to bootcamp barely doing pushups on her knees and now she can even do 1-arm pushups.  What a difference a year can make!

Many people think my programs are just for fit people or for those who are trying to lose the last 10 lbs.  In reality, my programs are for anyone ready to make change happen, to break out of their rut, or to blaze new trails that they didn’t even know existed.

Thanks Trish for being a great role model for your kids and everyone reading this article.

If you live in the Madison area I would love to see you at one of my Fit Fun Bootcamps.  Come try it out for a week and see if you don’t deliver huge value to you.  If you aren’t in the area, I have bottled up my training and workouts and put them in DVD format through my Got Core DVDs, and Fit Moms For Life DVDs. They have helped over 2000 people in the past 10 months.
