Lindsey Suto, Personal Trainer
I have been a Certified Personal Trainer for thirteen years now. I get excited beyond belief when I see my clients achieve success. I believe that no matter what the age or circumstance anyone can get into the absolute best shape of their lives if they take it one day at a time. I have competed in three Figure Competitions yet my biggest wins come from the joy I see in the eyes of clients who are wearing clothes they never thought possible!
My lowest point was picking my mother up from the airport and she walked right past me because she didn’t recognize the person I had “grown” into. The disappointment and worry in her eyes was an even greater blow to my already weak self-esteem. I was in a low place in my life and emotional eating was my only comfort. I stopped looking at the scales when I passed the 200 pound mark.
The turning point came when I realized just how much I avoided the camera and I was saddened at the thought that my son would never have any pictures of the two of us together. The picture to the right is one of a very few that I was “accidentally” caught in. I knew I needed to do something but I was clueless where to start.
I began walking and cutting down from my favorite combo meal to a kids meal. I had no knowledge of nutrition and exercise. Slowly the weight began to come off. Because I was only walking it took almost an entire year to reach my goal weight. When I finally got there, I knew it was time to take action and help others do the same thing.
