Second Chance At Fitness Proved My Doctors Wrong

Here is an amazing story out of TFW Ponte Vedra Beach proving doctors wrong and that you can always give fitness a second chance.

“My journey started a couple years ago when my wife Rosemary joined TFW. After months of her nagging me to give it a try, I finally gave in. Unfortunately, my first effort wasn’t my best effort. Using the excuse of a past shoulder injury, I quit after only two sessions.


Fast forward to the summer of 2016 when my doctor diagnosed me with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. He told me due to this diagnosis, I would be on medications for the rest of my life. I was NOT going to except that! I decided it was time to make a change and give TFW another shot, but this time go ALL IN. What I found when I committed to it, was TFW is so much more than just a workout. Instead I found an incredible training program filled with amazing people.


Seven months into the program I have now lost 40lbs, gone from 27% body fat to 15%, my muscle mass has increased, and I have lost 5” in my waist. And the best part? I am off all meds for high blood pressure and cholesterol! My doctor could not believe it. I’m truly in the best mental and physical shape of my life and feel ten years younger. TFW has made me a better person, friend, husband, and father.


From the coaches to the fellow TFW members I was given a positive environment that made it impossible not to succeed. Many of the people I have met are now great friends; which has made training a bonus. The encouragement from everyone at TFW is truly unbelievable. I’ve tried to make this life change a few times before, but always found an excuse to quit. I have now reached a point with this program that I really can’t imagine my life without Training for Warriors.-
