Member Success Stories: Alison McCarthy
I joined FITWORKS in May 2015, after discovering that I had allowed myself to become extremely unhealthy, reaching a weight of 286 pounds and 45 percent body fat.
After joining, I received a phone call from Eryk, a FITWORKS lead trainer, saying he'd love to help me reach my goals. He offered me a training session and evaluation. I was ready to take my life back, so I agreed.
After the evaluation, Eryk spent time discussing my goals and fitness needs. His approach not only motivated me, but also made me realize that my life and health were worth the commitment. Since then my life has changed dramatically.
I was set up with Tristan, who is still my personal trainer. Working with Tristan, along with my personal commitment to becoming more healthy, has enabled me to lose an amazing 60 pounds, 14 inches, and 9.5 percent body fat, and my muscular strength and endurance has improved in just 15 weeks.
“I can honestly say that my mind and body have been transformed in making a decision to join FITWORKS and work with a personal trainer.”
Tristan specially designed a workout plan that was not only appropriate for what I needed, but also challenged me in a way that I haven't been challenged since I was an athlete in college. I can honestly say that my mind and body have been transformed in making a decision to join FITWORKS and work with a personal trainer. For the first time in my life, I am signed up to run a half marathon! Thank you FITWORKS Norwood and all of the people there who have been friendly, welcoming and encouraging through this journey!
