A Lifestyle Evolution: Alex’s Journey to Better Health

If you’re new to physical fitness, it can be tough to find a good starting point. What exercises are right for your body? How many reps should you do? What’s a reasonable timeline for accomplishing your goals?

Rather than letting all these questions overwhelm him, Alex turned to Sunita, a personal trainer at the Markham YMCA. With the guidance of a trained professional, Alex successfully accomplished his goal of getting healthy enough to play with his kids.

“Before I started training with Sunita, I was leading a very unhealthy lifestyle. I had poor eating habits, and couldn’t stick to a workout schedule. I also suffered from hypertension and high cholesterol. In the fall of 2014, my doctor told me that I needed to make a lifestyle change for the sake of my health, so I decided to hire a personal trainer.

Under Sunita’s guidance, I was able to accomplish my initial goals of losing weight and getting fit: I dropped over twenty pounds and two pant sizes. My doctor is also pleased that my hypertension and high cholesterol have disappeared!

Best of all though, Sunita has taught me what a healthy lifestyle is all about. Now, I’m filled with energy every day, and I’m finally able to play sports and run around with my two kids.

I call it the “Sunita evolution.” Sunita managed to convert me from my former unfit, unhealthy self into a healthy, confident individual. If you’re looking for motivation, inspiration, and real results, don’t be afraid to ask for help!”
