Jeremy's Success Story

Explosion Fitness client, Jeremy Toulouse has lost 80 pounds over the last 18 months! 
Jeremy's goal was to feel better by losing weight. For the first year, Jeremy tried losing the weight on his own. He made up an eating plan, and managed to lose 40 lbs. He noticed that he didn't feel better, and had actually started gaining weight even though his eating habits didn't change. Knowing there had to be a way to keep weight off, lose more, and feel better, Jeremy started looking for a solution.
That’s when we met Jeremy. Explosion personal trainer, Matt Schaber, started working with Jeremy to define his goals, which were to lose 40 more pounds, gain muscle and feel better. 

After assessing Jeremy’s fitness level, diet and goals, Matt came up with a plan to help him succeed. Matt changed Jeremy’s eating plan to make it more conducive to losing weight, and got him to agree to attend bootcamp 10 – 12 times each month. Following that strategy for 6 months has helped Jeremy to achieve all three of his goals.

How can you benefit from Jeremy’s experience? Here’s his advice:

  1. “Without a doubt, the first step is making your mind up that you want to lose weight. If you aren’t 100% ready, it doesn’t matter what program you do or try; it won’t work if you aren’t committed.”
  2. “Find what works for you. There are a lot of options out there for weight loss. Do some research before you start.”
  3. Do NOT expect quick results. You didn’t get where you are in life overnight, so it will take some time and dedication to get where you want to be – but you will get there!”
  4. “Make sure you have support. Having Matt’s help and participating in the bootcamps at Explosion were and still are important to my success. We encourage and motivate each other.”
