Pro Fitness is excited to put the spotlight on Gregg Bushner this month! Congratulations from staff and friends at Pro Fitness!
I started training at Pro Fitness in 2006, back at the old place on Anderson Drive. My wife, Jackie, was training with Doug and, since I have a history of back surgeries, I decided it was time to help myself so that I wasn’t throwing out my back every other month. Training ended up becoming kind of a “date” for Jackie and me. Something we could do together that was healthy. I don’t miss dragging the tire around the building though!
My initial goals included strengthening my core so that I didn’t throw out my back as much. I went from throwing out my back 4 to 8 times a year to once every couple of years, thanks to Doug and all of the trainers at Pro Fitness. I’ve worked out with all of them! Jackie got into triathlons because of Doug which got me going with biking. We love going for an occasional bike ride now…some say I’m even a bit competitive (wink wink). I also like the holistic approach of Pro Fitness, always talking about health beyond exercise. I heard about the keto lifestyle from Pro Fitness, took up keto in May, and am down 36 pounds.
Goals going forward include continuing my program to keep my back in good shape. Lisa is currently doing an awesome job helping me with that. I also want to push myself to get to the gym more often.
For me, this journey has not been about losing weight, but about feeling better and getting my back stronger. I didn’t focus on weight until I started on the keto lifestyle. The weight loss in turn has helped me feel better as well. I’d like to add for anyone considering training, I couldn’t be happier with Pro Fitness. Everyone is so supportive and truly cares about the well-being of all the clients. This place is full of family members to me. The encouragement never ceases and I love the fact that each trainer has a little different spin on things. The variety is awesome! Lastly, KEEP THE HAIR(less) BAND MUSIC PUMPING THROUGH THOSE SPEAKERS!
