You’ve heard the story now. A guy walks in to the the gym, wants to lose weight. Wants to get healthy. Wants to change his life. Many people are not always ready for the challenges that come with taking on that venture. Clark was.
Clark was that guy. He was willing to make the change. I remember running him through his Free Trial, and he himself will joke about how he couldn’t even finish that “simple workout.” Huffing and puffing and mildly delirious, he told me he wanted to join. So his journey began.
From that day he never looked back. He was ready for the hard work. He was ready for the sacrifice. Clark told me he traveled a lot, I told him no problem. Just come to me when you know you are going out of town and we’ll figure out what workouts to do while away. Often people use that as an excuse and neglect to come ask for help, but true to his word, he would approach me with a printed list of our Workouts for the Road each and every time, eagerly awaiting the prescription to be bestowed.
He committed to the diet. To the lifestyle. Before his first day of Elements, Clark had already started Paleo. One cheat meal since joining. ONE! Not even at our parties would he stray from the path. That’s how you lose 63lbs in 4 months. No questions, just commitment.
We cannot be happier to announce Clark as the June 2011 Member of the Month. He is as humble as they get and willing to put in the time to get the results he wants. He exemplifies all that is Albany CrossFit and we know that he will continue to impress us in the future. Congrats!
