Age 35, father of two, busy Vice President of an Energy company. Trained at Endurance on 8th Health Centre. Now Chad is running circles around his kids!
My training with Kevin and Wendy initially began back in the fall of 2008 but due to the "same old" other priorities/crutch (which for me in order of importance was) work, family, work, fitness and health, it was not until the start of 2009 that I really decided to dedicate myself to getting in shape.
The first step to getting in shape was realizing that I needed help from someone who had been there and had done that. I had met Dr.’s Wendy and Kevin Ashby and the first thing that differentiated them from other Doctors/trainers was there approach to Health and Fitness. Instead of the approach I knew of just going to the gym and working out one or two body parts at the heaviest weight possible and then calling it a day, Wendy and Kevin’s approach involved doing upper body or lower body and required doing it at a furious pace while maintaining excellent form.
The second, and in my mind most important step for me on my fitness journey was Wendy and Kevin’s approach to nutrition. This opened my eyes to diet and the importance of eating and its effects on losing or gaining weight and in putting on muscle.
Thirdly, Wendy and Kevin are two of those rare individuals who know how to motivate and inspire. From January 4, 2009 to the middle of March, I lost 35 pounds (218 to 183) and went from 30 percent body fat to 7.2 percent. Since the middle of March to now I have gained back 6 pounds of muscle and my body fat has gone down to 6.4 percent. I really enjoy both the training and diet aspects of this experience and it has positively affected my work, family, confidence and relationships.
With my new body, energy and renewed confidence I have set a goal with Wendy and Kevin to train for a fitness competition in July. I am excited and looking forward to this experience. I can't thank Kevin and Wendy enough. They are selfless individuals who truly care about improving peoples’ lives. Unfortunately, as a result of the amazing results they have helped me to achieve, my back has never felt better and I don't see them as Chiropractors as much!
Thanks Wendy and Kevin!
