Testimonial : Kimberly DeAngelis
In the midst of my early 40’s I found myself in the worst shape of my life, 60 lbs. overweight and very unhappy. I hadn’t stepped foot into a gym in over 3 years, spent years with yo-yo dieting, and tried every diet fad on the market. I would lose a few pounds, only to gain it back plus more a short while later. Just after my 43rd birthday I realized I needed to make some serious changes in my life and I decided to join Crossfit Teneo. This is where I met Coach David.
Starting off was very slow for me, I had no strength, no endurance, and I was dealing with disc issues in my back. I had to modify every workout, and they were still very challenging. David was very patient with me and ensured I was training with proper technique and movements to help regain my strength.
After a few months in, and getting a bit frustrated with myself, Coach David began helping me with nutrition coaching as well as the strength coaching. For years I thought I was eating healthy and doing the right things, but I quickly realized that could not have been further from the truth. Once I began eating the way I needed to, instead of the way I thought I should, the weight began to come off.
About 6 months into my journey, I entered a 90 day challenge, including nutritional coaching/counseling from Coach David and additional workouts. With weekly check-ins and nutrition tweaks, after 90 days, I was shocked and excited to find out I had won. Beyond winning the challenge, I have won in so many other ways. I have lost 42 lbs. so far, dropped 3 sizes, and can say I am the strongest, healthiest and happiest I have been in over 10 years. My journey is not over, but a work in progress, and I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for Coach David. It sounds cliché, but if I can do this, anyone can, so quit making excuses and let your journey begin.
