Sam Y., I lost 13 lbs in 4 weeks

My wife started taking a Krav Maga class at Pinnacle about a year ago.  Knowing that I had been on the lookout for a good boot camp, she told me that Pinnacle had a special community vibe and that I should check it out.  I had been a runner for many years, but was feeling the need to balance my cardio with more core and strength training.  Plus, I had put on a few pounds.  I started Pinnacle in February 2015 and immediately noticed results in terms of my core and lower back strength.  Even though I felt better and stronger, I still had pounds to lose.  The timing of the Drop 10 challenge (late October to late November) was perfect because it ended right at my 40th birthday!  I knew that I would not succeed in dropping weight with exercise alone.  I used some of the key dietary guidelines that David Nash suggested and I adapted them to my lifestyle.  Essentially, I began eating 2 to 3 times the quantity of vegetables as I had before and reduced my cheese intake by about 75%.  I also greatly limited, but did not eliminate, my intake of bread and other grains.  Most importantly, I spent more time in food planning and preparation.  I made sure to have high protein meals (think smoked salmon or eggs + veggies) that were well-spaced to avoid over-eating from being super-hungry.  This planning involved at least one conscientious grocery store visit per week and about 15 minutes a day of food prep.  Of course, I also incorporated the fitness routine at Pinnacle with my own running for about 3-4 intense workouts per week.  At the end of the 4-week Drop 10 challenge, I had dropped 13 lbs and about 4% of my body fat.  The best part is that the changes that I made feel like ones that I can maintain over the long-run without feeling deprived or burning out.  Pinnacle has helped me to identify fitness and nutrition practices that works for my particular lifestyle and a support network of like-minded people to keep me motivated.  I’m grateful for Pinnacle and glad I took the challenge!
