Dan K. Inspirational Story

I joined Whole Body Fitness 9 months ago after spending several months failing to make the much needed adjustments to my life to get my health and weight under control.  I struggled to make the right decisions and integrate good choices and regular exercise into my busy schedule.  It was becoming clear I wasn't going to do it on my own.  Joining a regular gym still required I actually show up and exercise while eating healthy meant I had to keep myself accountable.  Around this time, I started seeing success stories from former coworkers who've made some serious changes to their body, nutrition, and overall health with Whole Body Fitness.  After so making no progress and my weight topping 270 I knew I wasn't going to do it on my own.  I was driving past Whole Body Fitness on my way out of town and vowed I'd stop in on my return, having run out of excuses.

Flash forward two weeks and I've had my consultation, signed up, gone through the MetPro on-boarding and have somehow managed to make it through a very rough week of early morning workouts with my trainer Matt and apologizing to my nutritionist Natalie for failing to plan my meals.  I learned very early on that meal prep is incredibly important to succeed on the MetPro system.  Eating 6 meals a day requires some real consideration on its own, let alone when trying to coordinate around all the daily nonsense any given work day will throw at you.  Using my Sunday evenings to make all my food for the week and packaging it up so I could walk out the door with my meals ready to go became part of my routine and ultimately my success.

With my ability to stick with my meal plan under control and workouts integrated into my regular weekly routine I started making progress very quickly.  Coupled with the fantastic support of Natalie, Matt, and the rest of the incredibly supportive Whole Body Fitness staff, providing me the much needed accountability and positive praise on my progress, I've been able to stick with the MetPro program and regular training for 9 straight months.

After 9 months of committed effort, I've lost over 70 pounds and feel I've transformed my lifestyle so that it would be difficult to backslide.  I love waking up and going to my workouts, attending group classes when my schedule allows, and have found all the right foods that makes eating on plan really easy, and often quite delicious too.  But my weight is just a number on a scale and the transformations to my body are far more important than a number.  My shoulder, neck, back, and knee pain that usually plague my life have virtually vanished.  I'm able to cycle longer distances at higher pace without serious fatigue.  I'm able to skate with more control vastly improving my fun and effectiveness in hockey.  And I'm finally able to consider playing soccer again without worrying about hurting myself or causing long-term damage to my joints.

And as happy as I am with my success, I'm not done yet.  My goal of losing weight is nearly complete, but I still have a lot of work and progress to go.  I still have more pounds to lose, but I know those will come with continued adherence to MetPro and regular exercise.  I'm shifting soon from dropping pounds to changing body composition and making improvements to my athletic skills.  I want to start training for century cycling rides which will require an adjustment to my eating habits as well as pushing my cardio and endurance further.  I want to continue honing my hockey and soccer skills requiring improvement to my agility and balance.

I first walked into Whole Body Fitness hoping to find accountability to allow me to lose weight.  What it has done in reality is far more important to me.  I've been given the knowledge and discipline to make healthy life choices for myself.  I'm able to have the active lifestyle I've missed for so many years.  And amazingly, although it pains me to admit it, I no longer miss donuts.  I look forward to seeing what the next 9 months has in store for me.

Jeff Gains Muscle with MetPro

MetPro Client Testimonial

I contacted MetPro in January of 2016 after reading an article about Angelo’s approach to weight loss and hoping he could apply a similar approach to help me gain 10lbs or muscle. As a slender guy, I was tired of being told I was too skinny and decided it was time to make a change to my body. Additionally, I hoped that the muscle gains could translate to faster times in the pool as I previously set a goal to swim a 25 second 50 yard freestyle before my 40th birthday. I began working towards this goal with Angelo in February and by June had added 20lbs to my frame, almost all of it being muscle. Angelo’s idea of ramping up one’s metabolism to effectively gain weight and muscle is a unique idea that needs to be tried to be believed. 

Angelo implored a “clean” bulk to add the weight which was a perfect fit for me as I tend to add weight in my lower abdominal region when I am not eating the healthiest and this is definitely the one area of my body that I’m the most critical of. Based on my weight, fitness level, age, and goal Angelo started me off on his Phase 8 meal plan in conjunction with some postural work and weight lifting. His system is quite unique in that he monitors one’s weight gains/losses daily and adjusts the meal plan within 72 hours if the results are not on track with his expectations. I moved to a Phase 9 meal plan eight days after starting Phase 8 and again moved to Phase 10 six days later. Angelo and his team are constantly checking in to monitor your progress and making adjustments when necessary. In order to make my gains more substantial, we eliminated all cardio vascular workouts at this point to keep the momentum going in the right direction. As a swimmer, this was the hardest part for me as I reduced the number of swim days each week from three to one. 

Four months after the start of the MetPro program, I exceeded my weight gain goal and began reintroducing cardio workouts to my weekly exercise program. I lost quite a bit of conditioning in the pool during this time but I am amazed how quickly I’ve regained it. I slowly worked my way back up to three days of swimming each week and it’s amazing how much more power I can feel through both the mid pull and finish of the front crawl stroke. I also noticed that my flip turns are crisper as I can better engage my core at the start of the turn and flip quicker. I am amazed at the muscle gains I now see in my chest, arms, shoulders, and back and I owe it all to Angelo and his team at MetPro. I would recommend his program to anyone who is serious about making healthier lifestyle changes or any athletes out there looking for a competitive edge. His system will have you working our more efficiently as well as providing your body with the correct amount of fuel to achieve your goals. Now, the only thing I need to do to make this a truly successful story is to wait for an upcoming alumni swim meet at my old high school and see if I can swim that 25 second 50 yard freestyle. 

Kathy's MetPro Success Story

My name is Kathy and this is my MetPro story. I was thin most of my adult life, but after ago 60 I noticed the pounds came on easier, and I was going up in clothing size. I did not want to write this as so many people I know never saw me at my heaviest, and it is rather embarrassing for me to show the before picture. However, if I can motivate one person to try MetPro, I will do it. I am proud of myself for losing nearly 40 lbs, and keeping it off for over a year now.

My daughter and son-in-law suggested MetPro, as so many others, including them, had great success with the program. I realized my biggest hurdle was overcoming my addiction to sugar and bread carbs. I ate them all day, every day, and needed to get off that wagon to be successful. When I started MetPro I weighed 155lbs (yikes).

My kids and husband were great inspirations to me, and it was really quite painless to follow the meal choices my profile indicated. Once I started MetPro, I was never hungry, and lost several pounds a week. No special food to buy, and all I needed was a food scale to measure portions. I had avoided weighing myself for years. Even at the doctor’s office I asked them not to tell me what I weighed so I wouldn’t feel as heavy. Really? The scale is your friend, and you need to weigh yourself daily to monitor progress and yell “yeah” when more pounds have been shed. The weekly check ins with my nutrition coach helped me tweak my diet when weight loss slowed. When I reached my goal weight, I decided I wanted to go further and lost another ten pounds. It is a great feeling to step on the scale and see that magic number you strived for.

I joined a gym and between that and MetPro I lost the weight in six months. My husband also lost weight by just eating what I did in larger portions. I feel great, and think I look pretty good for an old gal nearing seventy.

Please investigate MetPro for yourself. I can’t imagine where I would be if I had not chosen MetPro. I know I have added years to my life, my husband, too. And buying new clothes in size 6 instead of 14 is so much fun.

Thank you for changing my life MetPro.

"Diet has always been my weakness as I'm sure it is for a lot of people. Angelo's program breaks everything down in a super simple format making it incredibly easy to follow. Over the past 4 months he's educated me on how & when to eat properly. I'm at the point now where I can maintain this diet for the rest of my life. Oh yeah, I'm also in the best shape of my life and recently placed in a CrossFit competition as a result. Couldn't have done it without MetPro."
