Client Spotlight - Rich Thomas

From Rich – about his journey
After starting and stopping several programs and plans over many years, I found a program that helped me get my nutrition and focus right. However, even with those two important pieces of the puzzle, I knew that something was missing. That missing piece was fitness. I had no problem sticking to healthy “clean” eating, but had no idea where to start when it came the fitness piece.
I had been an overweight, inactive child. This followed me all the way through life. I had tried gym memberships before, and I felt like a fish out of water. I knew I needed someone to help guide me into a new and healthy lifestyle. I was motivated and ready! I searched through online listings and found Wilcox Wellness & Fitness and decided to stop in…but I chickened out! I decided to make a phone call…but you guessed it…I chickened out again. So I sent an email and soon received a phone call from Mike. A day or so later, I met with Jon, and decided to give Wilcox’s Wellness & Fitness a try - a decision, I am so glad I made!
I have seen some great results on the scale. Having lost close to 90lbs since adopting a “clean nutritional plan” and beginning training with Jon. I have also seen some great results that can’t be measured on the scale. I have a major boast in confidence, improved posture, and an overall better attitude. I can do more with my son, and occasionally beat him in a race.
From Rich Thomas – about his training sessions
Jon keeps sessions interesting, and fun. I can’t believe, I now refer to working out as fun! Jon is a great encourager and motivator, and has helped me to stay focused on my goals. Jon has designed a customized program to accommodate my fitness level and injures, all while, helping me achieve my fitness goals.
From Rich’s Trainer: Rich started training a year ago - the change he has made for his health has been phenomenal. When Rich first started, he was new to the functional fitness approach. He was used to traditional gyms where it is easy to fall into a comfort zone; however, comfort zones are not conducive to creating change. It requires a great amount of courage to get uncomfortable and change oneself. Rich found that courage and created his change. Now he moves better and looks healthier, but most importantly, he has a different sense of confidence about himself. He has embraced a new wellness mindset, with working hard in the gym and keeping himself honest with food choices. I am proud to be a part of his health and wellness journey. He has had a positive impact on others around him, himself, and myself. Continue to make an impact Rich!
