We are grateful for George sharing his story:

“Balancing life will always be a struggle. Between running a business, having a family, attempting to be a good role model for my kids, and trying to be a good husband, there is not always a lot of time to look after myself. It becomes very easy to sacrifice my own well being for everyone else’s.

With 40 on the not so distant horizon, I was finding myself getting frustrated with my lack of energy, irritability, inability to deal with daily stress and my changing body shape. I decided that I could not rely on someone else to fix this for me. I had to do this myself.

I had gone to gyms casually in the past but I knew from previous experience that I would need someone to help push and guide me if I ever wanted to stick with it. I was pleasantly surprised to find SVPT was not only close to my office but also very well reviewed. I sent the owner, Shara, an email describing who I was and what I was looking for. I received a very quick reply and was set up with an assessment appointment right away. I met my new trainer, Brittany, and quickly connected with her. I wish I could say that the next few weeks were enjoyable, but they were not. The workouts were designed specifically to push me and they did. I found myself sore and completely drained after every workout in the early stages.
It was after the first month when I started to have those feelings of not wanting to do this anymore that I started to get compliments from my wife and those I worked with.

My energy levels were increasing, my sleep improving, my snoring substantially reduced and my physical body was changing for the better. I was finding myself better equipped to handle the ups and downs of my day and still have energy when I get home to spend with my family.

I have been going to the SVPT diligently, twice a week, for almost a year now. It has become such a part of my routine that I can’t imagine not doing it anymore. That one hour, twice a week that I get to have just to myself is a real blessing. For me, going to the gym is not about getting a six pack and all those other gym stereotypes. I go to the gym to challenge myself, improve my confidence and improve the lives of those around me by taking care of myself so that I can take care of them.

The first step was the hardest but I am grateful to Brittany and the crew over at SVPT for making this a powerful experience for me and for continuing to push my boundaries.”
