Push-ups during her "fit test"

Push-ups during her “fit test”

Meet my client Ranna! We started working together about 6 weeks ago and I wanted to share the great progress she has made with you. To her dismay I snapped some pictures of Ranna during her “fitness test” today.  She has shown awesome improvement in a relatively short time so I thought I would give you a little snapshot of how we worked together to make that possible. Ranna is a 30 year old mother of 5 who had her 5th child about 6 months ago. She decided she was done holding on to extra baby weight and hired a trainer (moi) 🙂 .

Ranna’s goals:
1.  Lose the baby weight
2.  Be lean and strong
3.  Use proper form and technique when working out

My goals:
1.  Help Ranna reach her potential by teaching habits that provide long term results
2.  Create a sustainable plan that leads her towards her goals
3.  Increase lean mass, monitor food quality & cals, improve performance

We started out with food logging, a basic fitness performance assessment, and measured her weight once every two weeks.  She friended Jes Reynolds Fitness on the www.myfitnesspal.com website so I could monitor her food and we set some performance goals for her so she didn’t focus too much on the scale.  Ranna is a committed and determined person who already had really healthy eating habits.  She was not resistant to change, even when I asked her to eat more calories because I felt she was restricting too much for long term results.

In 6 weeks Ranna lost 8 lbs and has knocked 58 seconds off of her timed mile!  I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to see what she achieves in the next six weeks!  Great Job Ranna!!!!!
