Stories from our Living Strong Family
Brian, After following your intruction for
8 weeks, I lost 15 lbs of fat, gained 3 pounds of muscle
and reduced my body fat to 16 %. I would highly recommend
you to anyone interested in making permanent changes toward
a healthier, happier lifestyle. Since my wife and I
were trained at the same time, we were able to make significant
changes in the way we viewed eating and exercise together.
Our household is now better educated and more aware of how
to successfully lose unwanted pounds and add lean muscle.
Lewis C. Snell
I've lost 31 pounds since
begining your program. I weighed 210 for the past 5 years,
and now I'm consistently 169 or 170 each morning when I weigh.
Those are net pounds ( I've lost 45 pounds of fat, and added
pounds of healthy muscle). I am now off
of Lipitor for the first time in 8 years.
Dear Brian, Thank you so much for training
us so very well! I weighed 194.5 lbs. at the start of our
training and was a size 18. ( I am 5' 2 & 3/4" tall).
Since I began training with you four months ago, I have
lost 30 pounds and wear a size 12 as of October!! I
dropped 13.25 total inches in 6 weeks of training. ( Since
this was written, Lynne now has lost 50 lbs and is into a
After Yo-Yo dieting for years I have finally
stopped the cycle and feel so much better and know I can continue
with my new lifestyle!! I am so relieved that being fit
is so doable! Thanks to the education about strength training.
I now know that I can do this with your guidance and enhance
the quality of my life! See you soon! Sincerely, Lynne Jackson
Brian- I was looking at my workout
log and realized how far we have come in just 3 months.
I came to you as an out of shape overweight 53 year old wearing
38 pants and my 161/2 shirts were tight on my neck. I am now
into 34 pants , have lost 25 lbs, and now my shirt collars
are loose. I can`t tell you how much better I feel and how
much stronger I have become. This has really been a great
You have been imaginative in
creating exercises to accommodate my left leg in which I had
polio. We have seen a great deal of improvement in my range
of motion in that leg. What I am realizing is the more
success I have the more I want to do. Let`s keep going
and keep pushing me. Thanks- Johnny Bledsoe
Brian: Thanks so much for your expertise.
In only 4 months, I've had a 24 pound turnaround, losing
14 pounds of fat and gaining 10 pounds of muscle! I
still have more to accomplish, but I now have the assurance
that by using your information, I can have the strength
and body composition that God intended for us to have.
In all seriousness,
I would have to give your class an A-Plus - you were absolutely
outstanding. You have the right balance of information,
personal challenge, passion, and encouragement - and your
personal situation - both before and after - is an incredible
Today I find myself just
wanting every overweight person to know what you're teaching.
It's so very simple and do-able. And best of all...it's
life-changing in nature.
Several of my other co-workers
and friends have asked about your training because they
have been so impressed with the results they've seen.
I remember that it wasn't
too long ago that I was waking up in the middle of the night
with horrible acid reflux episodes from over-eating, was
ripping the seat out of my pants at work, was unable to
buckle my belt, and was constantly popping the buttons off
of my shirts; the very clothes that now look comically big
on me. Thanks a lot, Brian. D.C.
.....I was "at the end
of my rope" before I started working with you--I had
tried fasting and all kinds of other diets. I would lose
the weight (which I now know was mainly water and muscle),
and then gain the weight back (which I now know was mostly
fat). Your willingness to share with others the results
of 1000's of hours of your own work and research has truly
been a Godsend for me. Steve S.
Brian, I want to personally thank
you for being our personal trainer. One of the strongest reasons
for success stories like mine is the passion and the total
belief in what you are doing that you bring to your clients.
When I started Living Strong Fitness Training,
I was taking two blood pressure reducing pills daily with a
diuretic, one cholesterol reducing pill daily, and one triglyceride
reducing pill daily. After a few months of following your
instruction, my Dr. has taken me off all medications and
my blood pressure is now 119/70!
My weight was 200 lbs, when I started your program, and my body
fat was 27.6% (55.2 lbs). At the completion of the first 6 weeks
of your training, I had dropped 15.5 pounds of fat, added four
pounds of muscle, and had reduced my body measurements a
total of 11", of which 3.5" was reduced in my
waist. My body fat was 22.3% (41.4 lbs).
And now, after 7 months of Living Strong Fitness Training,
my waist measurement has been reduced by 8.25" and
I now weigh 169.5 lbs. My body fat is now 14.6% (25.1
lbs), and I have added many pounds of muscle!
Your motto is being fulfilled - "Living Stronger".
Thanks again. Danny Jackson.
