DELAYED GROWTH/SMALL FOR AGE: EATING AND TRAINING CAN HELP!
I wanted to start off by thanking Ken for everything he has done for me so far in my weightlifting experience. From the day I stepped into Ken's gym, to where I am now, there is not a doubt in my mind that I would not have been so successful without the help of Achieve Personal Training.
I am currently a 17 year old sophomore who was held back freshman year in the attempt to play Division 1 lacrosse. The main reason why I decided to stay back was that I was too short and small for my grade and most likely didn't have a shot to play lacrosse in college at the level I wanted to play. I went to multiple doctors throughout the year and all of them told me that my bone age was not the same as my current age. This frightened me because as I got older, kids were getting faster and stronger, but I would stay the same.
I joined Ken this past November (2015) hoping to get bigger, stronger, and faster for the spring and summer season of lacrosse. From the first day, Ken saw so much potential in me. He actually said once I started to come to him twice a week and eat properly, I would begin to start growing and filling out. He explained to me that eating and not overworking my muscles would give me a lot of success in my goal. I've been going to Ken for about 4 months now and he put 30 lbs. on me. When I first walked in to Ken's gym, I was measured at 5'7 139 lbs. I am now 5'10 165 lbs. and a completely different player on the lacrosse and soccer field.
It amazed me how Ken knew, right from the beginning, what was going to happen to me. But then again, Ken does this transformation to everyone who comes to his gym. Whether you want to lose weight or put on muscle, Ken is the perfect motivator and trainer you want to be with when achieving your goals. At first, my goal was to put on 15-20 lbs. before I started my spring season in March. I reached this goal at Achieve Personal Training within the first two months. Now that I know what Ken can do, my goals are through the roof.
Not only has Ken taught me how to lift and eat, but he's taught me life lessons I will keep with me forever. Overall, Ken has changed my life already and I have only been training for about half a year. We have only scratched the surface with what I can achieve with Ken. I know with hard work and determination, he will be able to help me meet my goals. As of right now, I was just nominated as ?Preseason Attackmen to watch in 2016? as a sophomore. This list was among other seniors and juniors who are already committed to play Division 1 lacrosse. This acknowledgment capped off the first stage I had when going to Achieve Personal Training, and I know there is still much to be done, and can be done before going off to college and hopefully playing lacrosse.
