Total Body Transformation Project | Update from Mike

December 17, 2014

I kept my goals for this program simple and over the last 90 days I met those goals and exceeded my expectations. My goal was to gain strength and increase stamina and with the help of Dewey my personal trainer, Complete Nutrition and the Ridge Athletic Clubs I am stronger now than I have been in 20 years.

Through this program I have been able to cut down several medications and eliminate a few of the meds. I did loose around 10 pounds, although that was not a goal of mine, and I can clearly see a leaner more cut physique.

When I married my wife 25 years ago we enjoyed long walks around town and more so in the backcountry exploring new places. As the Rheumatoid Arthritis and an autoimmune problems developed when I hit my 30’s exploring and walking long distances became impossible. Over the last 90 days of proper exercise, diet, supplements and finally finding the right medication (Humera) I was able to enter the Huffing for Stuffing 5K with my wife in November. We walked the 5K in about 50 minutes, not record breaking, but for a personal accomplishment that will be a shinning moment and more importantly a lesson that my life is not over. I can do the things I love to do and this program certainly put me back on the right path to a happier and healthier lifestyle.

The one thing that I now enjoy is training and competing in AKC Retriever Field Trials. Training my Labrador retrievers to mark 4 birds out to 500 yards, run blind retrieves, in all types of terrain on land and water takes a lot of time and energy. Now that I am gaining strength and stamina and muscle mass I am enjoying the one thing that I truly love to do in my free time. Thank you Ridge Athletic Clubs, Complete Nutrition for this incredible opportunity to turn my life around and for making me a healthier and happier man.
