Client of The Week: Zack!
Congratulations to our Client of the Week, Zack!
My fitness journey began right before Christmas. I had just been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and Orthostatic Hypotension. Not only was I feeling horrible everyday, I was having a hard time keeping up with my 6 year old son. This is when I decided to sit down and have a talk with myself. Although I was only in my early 30s, I was feeling like an old man and every part of my body was hurting from old sport injuries.
Over the course of the last 10 years, working a desk job and dealing with life events, I realized that I kind of let myself go and it was time to make a change. I was taking my son to his Ninja classes right next to Jada and decided it was time to check out the facility. I loved it from my first walkthrough.
MY GOALS & BECOMING A PERSONAL TRAINING CLIENT
I love training with Gaige. His knowledge of injury recovery, stretches, and exercise variation has been invaluable. It has allowed me to continue to come to the gym and strengthen injured areas to the point where they really don’t hurt anymore, allowing me to work hard everyday. He truly seems to care about my health and I appreciate that.I won’t ever forget the first time I met Gaige. I was by myself and struggling with how to do deadlifts properly. I randomly asked someone for help and it happened to be Gaige. He immediately stopped his workout to help me, and for a lot longer than I could’ve ever imagined, to make sure that I was doing the exercise properly. He introduced himself and I knew at that point if I was ever going to have a trainer, I wanted it to be him.
One thing I’ve taken away from this experience is that you need to start with a good foundation, even if you don’t see results right away on the scale. Body recomposition is no joke and will not only help you feel better, it will help you melt excess weight as well.
ADVICE FOR ANYONE THINKING ABOUT TRYING PERSONAL TRAINING
Any advice you could give for someone who has been thinking about trying personal training and/or the gym? Prepare to work. Everything you need to change your lifestyle is at Jada. Every trainer here offers something unique for different experiences. Spend some time chatting with them and see if your goals align with their specialties.
THE FACILITY & STAFF
I can’t say enough good things about the staff and facility. It’s overwhelming to start your journey but everyone on the staff or in the building has helped answer all my fitness questions. This has really helped me to get through days where I just don’t have it in me but need to keep going.
I was originally going to other gyms but now almost exclusively come to Jada, not only because of the amenities, but because of the people.
FITNESS IS UNDEFINED. WHAT’S YOUR FIT?
My Fit is being healthy and able. I want to make sure I am able to be there for my family, friends, and able to play with my son. To do this, I needed to prioritize my health and hold myself accountable. It just took a little bit to understand this.
MEET GAIGE HOOT, CPT AT JADA BLITZ FITNESS
Training with Zack is a fun and exciting experience. He puts in the time and effort and is willing and able to learn as we go. His mentality is all-in and he is willing to take on any challenge I give him. A client that takes their health into their own hands is a successful one, and Zack has done just that.
So, a few weeks pass by, and Zack came and found me in the gym one day, and the rest is history. Now we work together weekly towards his goals, and he’s gaining muscle and strength, eating better and losing weight, and most importantly he is moving and feeling better.
