Sweating for the Wedding

Around January 2015 I became interested in finding a personal trainer because I had recently gotten engaged, and I wanted to be in the best shape of my life for my wedding in August. At the time, I was living in Muncie, IN where I worked with a trainer for 6 weeks. By the time May rolled around and my sessions were over, I found myself only a handful of pounds lighter. I was disappointed. It is important to note that I, like many others, truly dislike working out. It’s hard, exhausting, frustrating- it’s work! I also really love food- pizza, beer, the good stuff!

When I moved to Lafayette, I was determined to find a new personal trainer who could help motivate me to stay on the right track to my goals, provide me with nutritional advice, and track my progress. After reading the testimonials on the Absolute-U-Fitness website and coming in for a free trial session, my search for a trainer was quickly over! Brian is the most knowledgeable and inspiring trainer I have ever had (up until this point I had 2). Although we were on a tight timeline (3 months) with vacations and other work-related travel included, he drew up a 90 day plan so that I was able to accomplish my fitness goals. I knew what to eat, when to eat it, how to work out on my days away from the gym. He even made a plan for me during weeks of wedding gown fittings, as well as during the week of my big day! If I ever had a question about my meal plan or workout routine while away, Brian always came through promptly with advice. Sometimes the advice was “Don’t eat it!” 🙂

Because he knew of my distaste for working out, Brian changed the workouts every time I came in for a session. Before I knew it, I was looking forward to our sessions, as well as our biweekly measurements! I realized I was finally motivated to do better for myself! Because of Brian’s charismatic personality, motivating training style, and knowledge about healthy and effective fitness regime, I left for my honeymoon in the best shape of my life! Brian was exactly what I needed to accomplish my goals, and for that I am very grateful. Although my wedding has passed and I am no longer receiving personal training, I am 100% confident that if I ever am in need of a personal trainer again I will be calling Brian Quinlisk! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
