“In the past, my doctor would always recommend that I should exercise and diet…I would start committed and then after three or four weeks become less and less consistent.” Bob Baho
Training Frequency: 3x per week
Cardio Frequency: Bob incorporates cardio intervals into his home workouts on the days he is not at F.T.
Nutrition: Bob has tackled his biggest nutrition challenge – his love of ice cream – by cutting down his intake to just 1x per week and he makes himself go out to get it
Results: Improved fitness level by 61% ~ Lost 3% bodyfat ~ Went from 0 to 5 full push-ups ~ Lost 1.25” in his waist (noted in 9/2010)
Noteworthy: Bob uses his time wisely; whenever there is a commercial break in a show he is watching, he knocks out a series of exercises that include push-ups, crunches, planks, curls and more!
Bob Baho My association with FT began when my wife scheduled a meeting with Karen to find out more about their fitness program. She invited me to come along and at first I said no. Later, I agreed to go but I still didn’t have any intention of joining. After Karen completed the overview of how the program worked, I decided to give it a shot and both my wife and I signed up with FT.
I was especially impressed with the emphasis on one-on-one personal training. In the past, my doctor would always recommend that I should exercise and diet. With that advice, I would decide to begin an exercise program on my own at home. I would start committed and then after three or four weeks become less and less consistent and eventually my plan to exercise and diet regularly would fizzle completely. This was a perpetual cycle that didn’t bring me any results. So now, at age 74, I have decided to try something new and more productive with FT.
I began my program in July and found great inspiration through the entire staff community. Under the direction of my trainer, Troy, I have made numerous strides in improving my physical health. Troy has introduced a variety of challenging and interesting exercises to meet my individual needs. Karen meets with me regularly and together we review my fitness test performances. I also appreciate her advice in helping me improve my diet. Jessica, my wife’s trainer, always greets me with her wonderful friendliness and encouragement.
I look forward to continuing to work with the fine staff of people at FT and maintaining the positive results I have experienced as I reach my personal goals in improving my overall health.
