I used to weigh between 230-240 lbs. After being at CFK for 2 years and 3 months I now weigh 164 lbs.”*
Cue cheesy fitness/motivational quotes:
“Where there’s a will there’s a way”
Super inspirational and empowering. The question, though, is, do you have a will?
“Nothing tastes as good as fit feels.”
One of my personal favorites. Perfect for that crucial decision when weighing the options between having a cheat meal and sticking to the plan.
Without further adieu, I give you I-Esha Scott. Front runner for CFK’s imaginary “most improved athlete of the year” award. It’s taken some time and hard work, but she bought into the system we’ve set up at CFK and, boy, is it paying off.
“I used to weigh between 230-240 lbs. I believe body fat was somewhere in the 40% range if not higher. My activity level revolved around my weightlifting: I went to the gym regularly (probably 3 or 4 days a week) to lift in preparation for powerlifting competitions. I would also squeeze in Tae bo workouts for my cardio. I gave up soda back in ’02/’03 and gave up rice in ’08 or ’09 but I still mainly ate whole grain breads, whole wheat pasta, meat, eggs, vegetables. Can’t forget about the fast food here and there, as well as frozen foods like corn dogs, french fries, etc. I drank juice, water and milk, but there was no balance or portion control to my meals. I just ate what I wanted when I wanted.
After being at CFK for 2 years and 3 months I now weigh 164 lbs. My body fat was 30.8% at last weigh in but I’m 5 lbs less than when I weighed in so my body fat is probably even lower now. My activity level has increased significantly since I stopped powerlifting and started CrossFitting. 4 days a week I do 2 different classes (WOD and specialty class) and the other two days I just hit the WOD. I also try to stay on top of my tv yoga workouts. I eat a very strict paleo-zone. Cheat meals are saved for the occasional holiday or special occasion.”
