I was labeled morbidly obese but I didn’t have problems with Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, or even Diabetes. I remember feeling that this is how I was meant to live but I was just surviving. Then I saw my “before” picture and thought there has to be a way. I have gained and lost hundreds of pounds all my life. I was “DIEting” but never learned how to eat properly. I would overtrain in the gym and would get injured countless times.
At a low point in my life, I decided to train with Abraham because he practiced what he preached. I knew he wouldn’t take my excuses and push my mind and body to new levels. It was tough love and exactly what I needed.
Abraham taught me that your body doesn’t transform in the gym but in the kitchen. It’s a constant struggle but Abraham showed me about proper nutrition. Fueling your body and not your emotions. What separates Abraham from other trainers is that he actually cares. He wants you to be successful, believe in yourself, and achieve your dreams. In the beginning, Abraham would check up on me to see if I worked out and what I have been eating. I lost over 100 pounds in a 13 month span and kept most of it off. That is a 2 pound weight loss a week for 56 weeks. Not so hard when you think about it. I have been working with Abraham for over 4 years and he still gives me the kick in the butt that I need today. He is not only like my big brother but my biggest cheerleader.
