Mike Dewis is a busy professional - who, in his early 40s is in the best shape of his life - and actually enjoying his workouts for a change! Here's his story:
Why did you get started with Nielsen Fitness?
Last year, I was at a point in my life where I realized I was in my 40’s and unhappy with my appearance – I wanted to tone up and feel better about myself. Since I’m not getting any younger, I figured it was time to start doing something about it, so I enlisted NF to help me reach my goals.
Why do you think you’ve been selected as client of the month?
Since January, I’ve been working really hard with my trainer – I had a trip in March that I really wanted to trim down for. I’ve been consistent and it’s really paid off in terms of results. I think that’s why my trainer ultimately chose me.
What does the future hold for you?
I think more of the same – staying on this upward trajectory of healthy living. Staying fit and accountable to the workouts and going into old age in a much better place (mentally and physically) than my younger self.
How much fat have you lost?
According to my last re-assessment, I’ve lost about 12lbs of fat so far, and gained 18 pounds of muscle since starting with Nielsen Fitness 16 months ago.
What advice would you give someone who was in your shoes?
You just have to start – you may find working out boring or tedious, but that’s only if you aren’t doing it right and if you don’t have someone there to push you along.
Having a Nielsen Fitness trainer has helped light that fire for me and kept it interesting and fun. I no longer dread workouts and that’s the biggest compliment I could ever pay them.
Other than your amazing results, what things do you value from your Nielsen Fitness experience?
I just enjoy the workouts. It’s odd for me to say but on Friday night, I find myself looking forward to my early morning workout on Saturday. I love the comradery with my trainer, and the exercises themselves – they’re challenging in all the right ways, making the results very rewarding.
