June 2015 Client Spotlight

                           PATRICK LENIHAN

It’s our favorite time of the month again; time to crown our newest Client of the Month!  And let me tell you, the month of June was one of our hardest selections yet.  Without further ado here is our June Client of the Month:  Patrick Lenihan!

Way back in December of 2012, Patrick was going through a little rough patch and unfortunately his health was taking a bit of a toll on and some family members as well.  Being concerned for his health, Pat’s Aunt Mary – a long time Pro Fitness Client – approached him and shook him out of his funk, and motivated him to make a change!

When he first started he wasn’t necessarily looking to hit a specific number on the scale or lose a certain amount of inches; what he was most focused on was to regain his mental and physical wellbeing so he wasn’t feeling down or bad every day.   Since beginning his health and fitness journey with Omarr at Pro Fitness Patrick has lost a STARTLING 90LBS and regained control of his life.

Going forward he has every intention to continue with his progress and continue losing weight & inches.

In a special note Patrick wanted to thank his trainer, Omarr, for staying diligent and keeping him on track even when he wasn’t as willing to change.  Lastly, he would like to thank his Aunt Mary for having the courage to confront him about his health because “it is a moment that saved & changed my life”.

May 2015 Client Spotlight

                                      TINA PARINS

It was yet again one HECK of a selection process, but we are proud to announce the May Client of the Month is Tina Parins!

Way back in June of 2014, Tina walked through the doors here at Pro Fitness in search of a change.  At the time she wasn’t quite feeling like herself and decided to start working with Darron.  Having a tropical vacation booked for December, she had a vision in her head of how she would look and feel and set out to make it happen.  To say she accomplished those goals doesn’t serve her justice…SHE BLEW THEM OUT OF THE WATER!!  In those few short months she not only became happier & healthier, but she rebuilt the confidence in herself that she deserves.  Here’s a little run down of her accomplishments so far since making to decision to train with Darron:

  • Lost 45lbs!
  • Down 6 Dress Sizes!
  • Decreased her body-fat percent from 38%…to 19%!
  • Her waist alone lost 10″!
  • Went from being unable to run at all to regularly running 7-10 miles 2-3x a week.
  • Completed her first official charity race this past November.
  • Adopted a Paleo eating lifestyle.

Going forward she has no plans of stopping the progress, and every day makes strides towards her new ones.  It is almost impossible to go a day without seeing her here rowing her heart out or showing the punching bag who is boss.  But most of all she is enjoying the Olympic lifting styles Darron is introducing to her and the challenge of building full body strength.  In the future she plans to keep challenging herself in all aspects of her fitness, especially now that she knows ANYTHING is possible with a little (a lot) of hard work and determination.

April 2015 Client Spotlight

                                       LEE KUEHL

After a long selection process and countless deserving clients we came to the conclusion that our very first Client of the Month is Lee Kuehl.

Lee’s background story has a couple chapters and all of which deserve to be shared to fully grasp how proud we are of his accomplishments.  In 2002 while at work, Lee was involved in an industrial accident when a truck fell off a lift and landed on him.  From this accident his L2 & L3 vertebrae were broken, suffered a spinal injury, and became paralyzed from the knee down.  He was wheelchair bound for 6 months, couldn’t walk, and eventually had his lower leg amputated.

In January of 2014, Lee began training at Pro Fitness with Omarr after a recommendation from his prosthetist, Brent Watzka C.P, who heard of us from a fellow client Mike Pierce.  Initially Lee had the intentions of taking the next step with his physical therapy by beginning a fitness program with us.  After just his first few workouts Lee loved the challenge presented to him by Omarr and his workouts and ceased scheduling therapy.  Since then Lee has lost 25lbs, improved his total body strength, and dramatically increased his cardiovascular endurance.  But most of all he has regained the ability to enjoy camping with friends and family, hiking, and biking.

Going forward Lee is proud, but still has a lot of goals to be checked off his list!  Working with Omarr he plans to continue strengthening his left leg with the ultimate goal to one day be able to run.
