I had to finally sit down and put into words the results I am getting with your videos. I had lost a lot of weight, 80 plus pounds in a little over a year, using various diets and several exercise programs. I then hit plateau. While I was no longer 222lbs I still wasn’t anywhere near my goal.
I decided it was time to join a gym and lift weights since that was the one method I had not yet tried. For 5 months I worked out at the gym 2 hours a day 6-7 days a week but my results were minimal. I had seen Fitness Made Simple commercials prior to this but never thought that someone with your body could ever understand a weight problem. I also assumed you had to be doing some crazy training that I could never get involved with since I have two small children at home and not a whole lot of time. Fortunately for me, you go to my gym and, over my five months of inefficient training, I watched you workout during my rest periods. That is what first interested me in your program. Your workout was less than half the duration of mine. It used to burn me up to see you walk in 20 minutes after me and leave 45 minutes before me. That’s when I had to know what you were really doing so I ordered the basic Fitness Made Simple (FMS) program.
Not only did I go from a size 10 to an 8 during the first 3 weeks of using Fitness Made Simple but for the first time in months I started to see my strength really increase. I’ve actually doubled the weight I lift in some exercises…in just 3 weeks!!!! More amazing to me was that I was now only weight training 3 days a week for one hour as opposed to the ridiculous amount of time I was spending before and getting nowhere.
I have since added AM/PM Workouts, Six Pack Abs, and the 45Min Fat Burning Workout to my weekly routine. And even with all of that I am still working out less time than I was prior to FMS. What I love about AM/PM Workouts is the concept. It makes sense and I can feel it throughout my day…and it’s only 10 minutes!!!! I used to use the excuse that my kids get up early and I have to feed them right away, blah blah blah. With your workout it’s only 10 minutes, they won’t starve, and, because I use the non-weight version, they can be right there with me. I have done crunches with my son lying on top of me or driving his toy cars on my head. My daughter likes to do push-ups and squats with me so it works out and gets my metabolism going. I love Six Pack Abs the best because in 2 weeks I see a difference that I didn’t see after 5 months of getting nowhere with other routines. I was spending 20-30 minutes every single day doing 500-600 useless incorrect crunches. Now I spend 10 minutes doing abdominal exercises that I actually feel and can see results with in only 2 weeks!
The 45Min Fat Burning Workout I use on weekends or when I can’t get to the gym. I use light weights and definitely love the cardio and strength training benefits I get from it. Overall, it has been 5 weeks…3 weeks with the Fitness Made Simple 3 day training routine…then 2 weeks of adding in the other 3 videos…and I’m happy to say I am now a size 6! I still have a bit to go but I know and can feel that I will get there using this system.
Thank you so much for creating it first off and for doing all the legwork, research, and trial and error for me and everyone else who buys your products. You have saved others and me years of useless training because you didn’t want people to go through what you did when you first got started and I think that is awesome. And for me personally, thanks for all your time in helping me understand things when I ask and for giving me different ideas and just listening. You really truly care about the results people are getting and, from reading the testimonials of others you’ve helped, I know you are truly dedicated to working with anyone who is serious about changing their body and their health. You are such a genuine person, real and giving, and you deserve so many great things for all that you are doing in the area of fitness for all the people out there who are benefiting from your hard work.
