Why I’m a Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Coach Today

In school, I was an athlete, participating in Swimming, Skiing, Hockey and Football.  But, in the intervening years between then and entering the work force, I really let myself go.  From an ideal weight of 160 lbs, I had ballooned up to 255 by the Spring of 2001.  I was in my mid-30s, and I was not a happy camper.

Truthfully, I had struggled with my weight all my life.  The CDC claims that a 9-year old boy, today, in the United States is, on average, 61.7 lbs (as of 2017).  In 1976, at 9 years old, I remember stepping on a scale and seeing the number 109.  To say I was chubby is an understatement.  I was teased and ridiculed most of my school years for being an overweight kid.  “Fatso” was a label I was given by many, and I was often bullied and teased.

As I grew, I became disciplined.  I began “jogging” and playing sports, and would go through phases where it seemed I was successful in managing to control my eating.  Of course, my weight would drop as a result of my efforts.  Then, the inevitable day would come when the “diet” came to an end, and I would return to my old eating habits.  My weight would increase, yet again, and then – because it was all I knew –  I would, once more, turn to a diet and exercise to “solve” my problem.  But nothing was really resolving, because nothing was changing.  “Nothing changes if nothing changes!”  Let me tell you, I know that one well, from personal experience!

I would learn, years later, that the conditions of “overweight” and “obesity” are more complex that we have historically believed them to be.  Not everyone who presents as overweight or obese suffers from the same particular subset of issues.  In fact, there are 4 different classifications of “problem” eaters.  Note: I define a “problem” eater as someone who eats in such a way as to cause them some level of distress and concern.  “Problem” eaters need not necessarily be overweight, but they still may want to change their eating habits.

That being said, most problem eaters are, in fact, overweight.

Because of what I’ve learned, and because of my own journey, I believe I’m in a unique position to help people who struggle with “Problem Eating,” whether you’re obese, overweight, or just plain unhappy with your eating habits.  I can help you resolve what might have been, to-date, a life-long struggle for you.


Diagnosing the Problem of “Problem Eating”

The first problem is that of diagnosis, or rather the typical lack thereof.  The diet/weight-loss industry, seems to assume that all “Problem Eaters” struggle with the same issue.  It usually sounds like this: Problem eaters/overweight people/obese people eat too much of the wrong foods at the wrong times, and don’t exercise enough.

Nonsense.  Science has shown that this is in fact not so, yet we still cling to these archaic notions.  Why?  What I do is based on the latest Science of weight loss, to help give you a maximum chance of success.  I owe you that much.

What do I mean by success?  Simple: you lose your weight, and never gain it back.  Ever.  And I teach you everything you need to know so that you never again have to pay someone like me to help you to lose weight and get in shape.  I empower you to take control of your own life, one day at a time, for the rest of your days here on earth!

We will first diagnose your problem, and then suggest to you a corresponding solution.  There are simple diagnostic tools I use to do that, and I can explain more to you If you come see me.  You should: the initial consultation is free, and you’ve got nothing to lose except your weight!!!

No more diets, no more trainers (well, unless you like me and want to keep me ), no more “trying” to lose weight again.  If you do everything I tell you, I will guarantee you that you will never, ever again have to step on a scale…unless, that is, you want to start measuring how much muscle you’re gaining from my workouts!!!

Reach out to me using my contact form here , or e-mail me at mike@fitin20.ca.  Alternately you can call me at 647-677-6025.  I’d love to hear from you!  I know I can help you get your life back on track.
