Hi Dan… On our 2nd last sms…you wrote…“Haha. Great to know that you are prepared to train hard”.
When we met…you took my % body fat readings thrice and each time there was no reading a.k.a error on the digital screen. Dan…I saw the shock on your face. You took your own reading and Jay’s and it worked miraculously. Haha… Wow! I was totally embarrassed. That was me at 71.4kg and haha…. more than 40% body fat as of the 12 Nov 2007. That was due to my undying love for refine carb…the yummy pizza. Lord!
The last training with Jay on 23 May 2008, I weigh 51.3kg, body fat 23.9%, BMI 21.1. As of 1st Aug 2008 at 47.8kg, I am targeting 45kg towards a 16% body fat...aka…a bikini body before Christmas 2008. All the above said… I could have not done it without Jay.
“Jay is a trainer to keep for life...his passion in helping his clients meet their fitness goals is second to none.”
On one of the training session…Monday blues struck me. When I stepped on the weighing scale, I was very upset with myself because over the weekend my caloric intake was for maintenance not weight loss and oh my Lord…I gained 300g instead…wishing the 300g weight gain was from water retention instead and deeply regretted not taking enough psyllium husk.
Had Jillian from the Biggest Loser be my trainer, she would have reprimanded, screamed and instructing more cardio for me. However Jay is totally the opposite. In confidence Jay said “Sofia…I promise…I will take that away from you by friday”.
At 7.10am, I was half dead…haha…even before attempting the 200lb leg press and looked at Jay and said in much disbelief. ”Really…Jay?” At that instant…that 300g increased in weight just melted away and psychologically I felt much lighter in years. That is how magical Jay is… even my belly dance shimmy improved with gym training.
Dan and Jay…what I want to really say is… You guys breathing and living a body building life. I am proud to say that body fat, lean muscle and nutrition makes more sense to me rather than obsessing on BMI and weight. “Whatever your fitness goals are, other than making it come true, Jay makes it simple, easy and fun too”. Jay…Thank you and Happy Birthday!
Dan…Thank you for recommending the ‘crème de la crème’ de best fitness trainer around. Body building is a sculpted art.
