Client Spotlight: Greg B.

Client highlights are finally back at Limitess with the new Client Spotlight!
The first Client Spotlight is on Greg B.

Greg received Limitless Client of The Month way back in December 2013, which was when he graduated from the police academy. Following graduation he took a workout hiatus to focus on an SF academy and starting work as part of the SFPD.

He has always been a hard worker but it was in June 2015 when he decided he needed to make big changes. His workouts were as hard and grueling as ever but his body was very stubborn when it came to losing weight. So we did a complete overhaul of his diet to see real change on the scale. We focused on a few main changes: No more bagels, no more processed sugar, and no more junk food. We added protein bars with minimal sugar and emphasized healthy meals including lean chicken, brown rice, and broccoli.

There was no doubting the results that followed. One month later, in July, Greg had lost 15.4lbs! bringing his weight from 211.4 to 196.0lbs. The next month he lost over 10 additional pounds, and another 8 the following month.

At the end of 2015, Greg reached a bodyweight of 171lbs, bring his total weight loss to over 40lbs in 6 months! (This also included over 10% decrease in body fat percentage AND 7in lost around his waist)Screen Shot 2016-04-02 at 8.42.22 PM

Now at a much more comfortable weight, Greg has been focusing on strength training. Chest dips and pull-ups used to be far fetched dreams for Greg but now he reps Chest dips out with 40 additional pounds around his waist (coincidentally the same amount that he lost), he also can do 5 pull-ups and counting with 15 additional pounds on his waist.

His absolute lifts have also improved dramatically with an impressive 245lbs (and growing) barbell squat for 10 reps and he can bench press his own body weight for reps now as well.Screen Shot 2016-04-02 at 8.34.32 PM

I am impressed and inspired by Greg’s work ethic as well as his dedication when it comes to continuing his clean diet. He is great at pushing himself and I am excited to see where he goes from here.
Don’t be surprised if Greg is featured for a third time here at Limitless in the future!

September/October 2015 Client Highlights

A lot of busyness the last couple months but here we are with the client highlights for September and October.

Good work, crew!

Way to go Ryan, that’s 225lbs he’s deadlifting for 10 reps! Ryan started with a 135lb deadlift max 13 weeks ago in July.  His goal is to pack on lean weight and overall strength, I’d say a 90lb increase in his deadlift is a great start!

July 2015 Client Highlights

What a great month for Limitless and the Limitless crew!  Here are some of the highlights:

Allie achieved a new record on her gut-busting core circuit.  Breaking her record from 3 weeks ago by an entire 4 minutes!
On a side note, Allie also achieved her longtime goal of completing an unassisted chin up! Way to go!

It was a family affair at Limitless, with a 3 1/2 pack of clients.  Great work to the Hardens!

New member of the ‪Limitless crew, Veronica, increased her max burpees in 1min by 20% in 3 weeks!  Look for more big improvements from Veronica in the near future with her continuing hard work!

In 6 months, ‪limitless crew member Allie has gone from being able to complete a respectable 23 full pushups in one minute to now hammering out nearly TWICE that amount (42) in the same minute WITH her feet raised 2ft above the floor!

Great performances this month but I have a feeling that August will be bring even more awesomeness!

New Year, New Location!

At last the chaos of constructing, deconstructing and moving has slowed down enough for me to let the rest of the world know that Limitless has changed locations!  So if we’ve been out of contact for a while and you’ve driven by the old location horrified that Limitless looked to be no more, don’t worry!  We aren’t going anywhere!  (Well, except for our new location)

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 12.25.57 PM

No longer at the north end of Petaluma, we are now right in the heart of it.  Across from whole foods on East Washington street is our new spot.  Street and building signs will be up very soon and I am very excited at the opportunities that this new location will bring with it.

So if you haven’t checked out the new spot yet, come on by and say hi!

Client Of The Month: March

March 2015
Nestor, Steve, and Shawn

Finally, Client of the Month is back and we’re making up for lost time with a solid three-pack to start off 2015!20150225_190316

These three guys have been coming to Limitless regularly two times a week since last year. Originally as a four pack (CJ is an honorable mention for client of the month this month), Nestor, Steve, and Shawn are good friends and roommates who decided to come by a couple times a week after work to up the intensity in their fitness routines and to help out with the sports they play like soccer and basketball.

The workout sessions are quick, 30 minute sessions filled with strength-training and athleticism-building circuits aimed to collapse them on the floor in a puddle of sweat by the end. Without a doubt it is working because every single time they revisit a circuit they’ve done before, they don’t just break their previous record, they shave whole minutes off their times! (What else would you expect with a crew who says that ultimate burpees and battleropes are their favorite exercises!)
Needless to say, I need to constantly create tougher and tougher workouts and exercises to keep up since there appears to be no slowing down in sight for them.

Who knows, If they keep this up we may have our first 2x COTMs by the end of the year!
