Thanks for stopping by. My name is Paul Meyers and I’m a Certified Personal Trainer and fitness transformation specialist. I’d like to share with you a little about me.
You wake up one morning and look at yourself in the mirror and say, “How the heck did I get to where I am right now?” I told myself it was just how life happened, and it’s “just happened” to many of us. I remember going through high school, trying to get my weight over 200 lbs. for hockey, lacrosse, and football. I just couldn’t do it, to be honest, I didn’t know how to do it back then. My workouts were sporadic at best and my nutrition was horrible.
Enter the military. My life did a complete 180 degree turn. My weight jumped over 200 lbs. within a year and I was considered “fat” by military standards. I would “battle the bulge” for the next 6 years of my life, yo-yoing back and forth like a see-saw (in and out of shape if that’s what you call it).
It really didn’t stop (the bulge that is) when I left the military to pursue my education. I have a bachelor’s in Psychology and a master’s in Counseling and Human Services (I really enjoy helping people). I systematically gained about 70 lbs. over the next 10 years of my life. I say systematically because I systematically ate fast food and drank soda on a constant basis. I knew it was bad for me but it was convenient.
To be honest, I did work out on and off but my weight cycled up and down climbing higher and higher each time (worse than a fad diet) as I would start then stop, rinse and repeat.
I finally made the commitment and stuck to the program! It feels great. I finished that first round down about 18 pounds (everyone’s weight fluctuates from day to day that’s why I say about) and two loops on my belt. Did I say it felt good? From an accountability standpoint I have to add that I really only followed the P90X program about 75% true. I could have done even better but my family is important to me and we travel to visit our parent’s every month or so. My wife is understanding and supportive but I need to bend a bit also (as much as I would love to not miss workouts).
I’m not interested in being a rabbit in this race for a healthier life. I can help you get significant results in a short period of time but we’ll also need to establish some good LASTING habits. Quick and easy fixes won’t last. Be in the race for life and you won’t be disappointed. With our joint effort we can succeed together in anything and I’m here to be your success partner for a better YOU!
