Sheba hired Jeff as a Personal Trainer in 2009.
I’m not one who is easily intimidated, but I must admit: upon meeting Jeffrey for the first time at our fitness consultation, not only was I intimidated, but doubtful and even embarrassed of how I had let my physical health get to the point that it was. I wasn’t confident enough in my ability to completely follow through the personal training plan that we had developed that day. I thought of the many times I had been down the same road: count calories, exercise, lose weight, gain weight, repeat. What made me think that this time would be any different or a final breakthrough in my struggle with the weight roller coaster?
Initially, I seriously struggled through our sessions. I usually have high expectations of myself so when I wasn’t able to meet my own expectations during the initial workouts, I was emotionally affected and I believe Jeffrey knew it. Despite my initial struggles, Jeff’s coaching, positive nature, belief in my ability, and commitment to the goals we set became the motivational driving force for me to continue. I regained confidence: giving up was not an option. In a short amount of time, I began to feel the health benefits and see weight loss results. Most important, the experience set me in the mindset to replacing old habits with new habits that I am confident I will take with me as I continue to journey through life.
What’s different about my fitness plan this time around? The fact that this time around, I am not alone.
I have a trainer who is extremely passionate about what he does, exceptionally knowledgeable, cares for his clients, does all that he can to educate others on the way to make permanent, healthy lifestyle changes and is professional and energetic. Each training session presents different physical challenges, which keeps the workouts fun and the body alert. I remain a client of Jeffrey’s and intend to be for a long time.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found Impact Ultra Fitness.
