A Couples Story
Julie is one of Ann’s first clients and has seen amazing results in just over a year of training. She began working with us after listening to Shaun speak and winning the drawing Shaun offered at the event. She felt what she spoke about made sense and was eager to give it a try.
Julie has spent her life, beginning at a very young age, overweight. Although she has a very confident personality, and is successful in business, she has always referred to herself as “the fat girl”. This time, with a different approach, she has changed her mind set and has obtained remarkable results. In the first 8 months of training (twice weekly for 3 months, once weekly for the next 5 due to working out of town) she was able to lose 80 lbs., dropping in size from a 24 to a 10/12 pants. In January she gained custody of 3 & 4 yr. old boys and has become even busier, but still managed to maintain her weight loss. She has chosen to not completely cut any foods from her diet but make better choices and eat the high calorie foods much more sparingly, and fill up on the healthier choices more often.
Julie has developed a recipe for success! Congratulations, we are excited to be such an important part of your jouney!
Before working out at the Exercise Institute I had done the “gym thing” many times with no success. I have always just been the tall skinny guy and have had little to no success at the gym, so I decided it couldn’t hurt to try the Exercise Institute for 6 months. I was very skeptical to say the least when I first heard about their workout plan of only 15 minutes a day twice a week. Well, thanks to the most amazing trainer (Shaun) at the Liberty Lake office guiding me and pushing me every step of the way, after 10 months I had gained around 20 lbs of muscle. I am now on the new Edge program so I can attempt at a six pack by summer and in the 3 weeks that I have been on it have lost 4 percent body fat! I love the workout atmosphere of the Exercise Institute and do not foresee myself ever going back to the normal gym atmosphere. Not only do I have a GREAT trainer at the Exercise Institute, I have developed an even better friend. Here’s to seeing the results of what another year will bring!

In July of 2010 I had a 14 month old son, working full time and was trying desperately to lose the rest of my baby weight. I was depressed every morning putting on my work clothes that either didn’t fit or I didn’t feel comfortable in. I began training with Mike and within 2 months I started gaining energy and by 6 months I was noticing a huge difference both in the way I felt and looked. I was working out twice a week for 15 minutes, watching my portions, gaining strength and losing weight. I’ve now been training for 11 months and have gone from 137 pounds to 108 pounds. I’ve always had a slim build but my friends are noticing that I now look fit and in shape. This program works wonderfully for me. I am 5’ 4” and when I delivered my beautiful son I was 174lbs., yesterday weighed in at 108. I now look forward to my workouts that I am able to work into my extremely hectic schedule.
