Every month we go through the success story emails from TT members and award a 1-year Platinum TT Membership to our top readers.
This month, we’re giving away two Platinum Memberships (worth $197) to Emily and Neil.
Here are their motivational and inspirational stories.
Emily’s Sister Lost 19 Pounds with Turbulence Training, and Now She’s Trying TT Too and Has Lost 16 Pounds in ONLY 5 Weeks
“When my sister first told me about the TT program, I was somewhat skeptical of the results she was claiming…UNTIL I SAW HER!
In six short weeks, my uncoordinated and out of shape (not anymore) sister had lost nearly 19 pounds! So, I decided to give it a try. I am excited to say that I have been using Turbulence Training for about 5 weeks now and I can already see a noticeable change in my body!
Several years ago I hit 190 lbs (I am a 5’1” female) and decided that it was time to get fit. I worked hard and eventually fell in love with long- distance running. I got down to around 140 lbs but gained some back after several years of marriage. Before I knew it, I was at 155 lbs again.
I am an ultra-marathon runner and have trained for and run several races exceeding 30 miles, yet I could not lose the extra fat.
So far, Turbulence Training has enabled me to lose 16 lbs. of fat in 5 weeks and I have lost 6 inches off my waist!
Now I am kicking myself for not taking “before” photos. I still have about 14 lbs to go before I reach my goal weight of 125, but I am never bored with the workouts and it has propelled my long-distance running to a new level as my speed is increasing.
If you think the Beginner and Intermediate workouts look to easy, think again. Even after just completing a full marathon in under 4 hours last fall, the beginner workout gave me a run for my money!
I am looking forward to reaching my goal weight and continuing to set strength and fitness goals. Thank you TT!!!”
And Neil is
“I wanted to take an extra minute to say thanks for everything you do to help all of us out here trying to get in shape. The help and motivation I’ve gotten from you in so many aspects is immeasurable.
I even found your hotel room bodyweight workouts, that are a big help for when I’m traveling (usually up to your town of Toronto).
Here’s my quick, unsolicited story: I am 40 years old, 6′ 3″ tall, and have been sitting at around 230 pounds for the past 10 years.
It’s the classic story, prior to turning 30, I had always had “high metabolism” so I could eat whatever I wanted, and didn’t go to the gym on a regular basis, but still maintained a healthy weight.
However, at some point, after graduating college and getting a 9 to 5 office job, a switch was thrown somewhere, and now, here I sit.
There are a multitude of reasons why I have finally decided to lose my extra “baggage,” but the proverbial straw was when I was recently traveling, and my cell phone kept popping off my belt clip.
I quickly realized that it was every time I bent down for whatever reason, my gut was knocking it off.
To add to that, my father just had to have another angioplasty in January, due to some heart issues. He has always been a legendary eater. When he was younger, his nickname was “Grocery Store,” because that’s where all the food would go.
When he turned 50, he was diagnosed with diabetes. This, combined with his eating habits, put him in the hospital when he was about 57. He had to have a 7-bypass heart surgery, because of the terrible condition of his arteries. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop his eating habits, and I didn’t change mine at the time either.
But after his hospital visit early this year, all of that changed for me. I looked into the faces of my two young children, and realized that I didn’t want them to see me lying in the hospital anytime soon. So here I am.
Since getting started 5 weeks ago on Isabel’s Diet Solution, along with doing the TT workouts, I’ve lost 11 of the 35 pounds I’m trying to lose.
I’m looking forward to getting down to my ideal weight again, and am excited everyday to do every little thing I can to make that happen.
Thank you again for all you do,
Congrats to Emily and Neil.
