I had always been overweight even though I played a ton of sports as a kid. University was hard on my weight gain, which carried through to my mid twenties, marriage liked my heavier weight as well. It wasn’t until I had my daughter (Grace) that it really started to bother me.
My daughter Grace was around 3 or 4 years old and began to have chronic ear infections, and at that time I was playing hockey with a chiropractor, Dr. Ryan French, so I took a chance and started asking him about Grace, he said bring her in. This is where I believe my journey started. Dr. Ryan became not only an amazing chiropractor, but a good friend and helped Grace tremendously. I started with a cleanse, which helped me lose 20 lbs right off the bat. That feeling was awesome but it didn’t last, I fell back into my old ways. A few months went by and I was fed up again, so I did another cleanse, but this time I joined a gym, and I started to see even better results, results that were addicting. I wanted more. I kept up going to gym for months after joining and I dropped 40 lbs. Although I did plateau after a while, so I myself went to seek the help of a personal trainer. This help take me to the next level and inspired me to become a personal trainer myself.
My journey started at 245 lbs 7 years ago and now I am 180 lbs. As well my journey has become a family affair, not only do I continue to train myself, my wife trains and now Grace has started with a personal trainer. Our fit and healthy lifestyle has become a regular routine, something we all enjoy and benefit from.
