Meet Jessica. Jessica is 47 years old and has one of the busiest schedules I know. She is self-employed and has 2 boys that both have demanding schedules for their sports and activities.

I first met Jessica in my bootcamp classes back in 2014. From there she hired me as her trainer and we have been working out twice a week ever since.

She had a very difficult time losing weight despite how much activity she was doing.

I’m happy to say that after some hurdles (which will be addressed in a future video) she has lost 88.1 lbs and 57.25 inches!

I first took her measurements on September 8, 2014. Here are her stats:

Weight: 267.6 lbs
Body Fat%: 51%
Total Inches: 245.75
Clothing Size: 20/22; 2XL

Her measurements now, as of November 29, 2017 are:

Weight: 179.5 lbs
Body Fat%: 40.7%
Total Inches: 188.5
Clothing Size: 8/10; medium

Congratulations Jessica for overcoming your obstacles and setting time aside for yourself to create a healthier and fitter you.

Honestly, if this woman can set aside 2 hours a week for herself, anybody can.

This is Naomi. I first met Naomi in 2004 when she first came to my bootcamp classes. Actually, she reminded me that she attended my kickboxing class at Centennial Community Centre when I worked for the City of Markham. When she was ready to start her fitness routine after her 1st child she did a google search and found me. Remembered my face and immediately contacted me to join. Here is her story.

After my first child (son) in Nov 2013 I was about 155 pounds and a size 10 or 12 (as I never liked my pants to be too fitting). I maintained roughly the same weight and size for 2 years and then became pregnant with my second child (daughter). After my daughter I am now about 130 pounds and a size 6. If I didn’t have you to guide me through workouts and get the personal training and attention I needed- I wouldn’t feel as comfortable and more confident in the clothes I am wearing now.

After my son I tried to improve my eating habits but resorted back to more takeout than cooking at home. After my daughter I have taken a more dedicated effort to eating better with cutting down my portion size and very rarely drinking pop (which I LOVE).

After my son I started bootcamp with you and enjoyed the group fitness but could only commit to one day a week and usually did not do any additional exercise outside of class. After my daughter I committed to seeing you for personal training 2 days a week and also took an additional group fitness class once a week. I found myself going for walks when I didn’t have classes to keep active and I can’t tell you how much healthier, fit and stronger I now feel.

I had to buy new pants and tops and love the fact that I am seeing more muscle tone in my body. My endurance is more than it ever has been – especially in my physical activity and those darn tabatas.

Thank you for continuing to support me through my fitness goals and keeping me on my toes…literally!

Since having her daughter she has lost 25 lbs, a total of 20 inches and 8% body fat. She has not been this weight since she got married which was 4 years prior to her first child being born. How amazing to say you are the same size as when you got married.

My client and I have been working together for 2 months to get her ready for her trip to Greece. We started working out twice a week and then for the 2nd month we increased it to 3 times per week. In 2 months she has lost 30.2 lbs, 4.7% body fat, 14.5 inches and her BMI has gone down by 5. OUTSTANDING RESULTS!!!! Dedication and proper nutrition are what made this happen. I can’t wait to share the before and after photo.

Check out these photos that are a year apart.  What a huge improvement.  Phil is my husband but also one of our clients.  He has been following Fizzique programs for a few years now and he just keeps improving.  His goal is to gain weight because he was very skinny growing up.  It was difficult for Phil to put on weight but not any more.  Under the supervision of Fizzique he has changed his eating habits and workouts and clearly the results are working in his favour.  What a huge accomplishment in 1 year.  As you can see by these photos progress takes time.  There is no quick fix that will have permanent results.  It is a process so accept it and enjoy every moment of it without stressing out.

My client is a superstar! In 1 month she has lost 12 lbs, 4.3% body fat and 9.25 total inches. We have been training twice a week and will be increasing to 3 times a week for the next month so she can gear up for her trip to Greece. She has been on point with her nutrition and gives me 100% every session which is clearly working based on these results. We have also introduced boxing in her workouts which she loves (who doesn’t love punching and kicking their trainer?!)

As a personal trainer and fitness professional it’s so important to measure your client’s progress. Each month I take my clients measurements to make sure they’re staying on track. It’s a great way for the client to stay accountable to their goals and for us to chat about how we’re going to keep the momentum going.

This is a male client of mine who is working extremely hard and the results are clearly paying off. In just 2 months he has lost 20 lbs, 6.1% body fat, 8.5 inches and 2.6 BMI.

This is proof that hiring a certified personal trainer pays off. We get you the results and work with you every step of the way. One on one attention and the right fitness and nutrition plan to ensure you get the results you are striving for. It’s not an easy process and it does take work but the results are worth it…..and so are you!

I have known Angela for quite some time.  She started as a friend but when she decided to make a commitment to her fitness routine she contacted me to assist.  I was very excited to help her but also a little nervous because when you’re already friends with someone there is added pressure.  Will my programs be successful?  Will she enjoy the workouts?  A lot of questions crossed my mind before starting our sessions but once we did I was reassured that this was a right fit.
Angela really wanted to focus on kickboxing for her training.  She had done some of this kind of training at her gym but wanted to add more to her workout routine.  Since I run MMA classes in our town she sought me out to have her training sessions centred around this style of training.  MMA or kickboxing really proves to be a sure way to lose weight because of the many components involved with the sport.  You get a crazy amount of toning because you’re actually hitting an object and it’s a great cardio workout.
Here is her story.

My weight loss journey started in February 2014. My youngest daughter was just over 2 years old and I was still carrying some baby weight. I weighed 156lbs and each week the number would climb. I felt tired and I didn’t feel good about myself. I decided to join a local gym. After going to the gym on-and-off for a year I lost a total of 8lbs. My problem was that after 5 months I stopped making progress and I had not yet achieved my goal.

Before

In mid-April 2015 I weighed 148lbs and was still struggling to lose the last 10 pounds. I contacted Alexis Talledes of Fizzique. We discussed my goals, my diet and my routine. I committed to 10 weeks of personal training with Alexis. Each week she brought something different to my workout; strength training, MMA and TRX. Within that 10 weeks I reached my goal weight of 137lbs and noticed a significant change in my physique. Alexis kept me focused on the task, and designed training that I actually enjoyed. Alexis’ enthusiasm and knowledge, as well as her ability to motivate allowed me to achieve goals that I was unable to on my own.

We completed 1 set of 10 sessions and are onto our next set of 10.  I ensured to take her measurements at this point and before and after photos and here is were she is today.

Our next focus is to strengthen her core so we have been utilizing the TRX system quite a bit in our sessions.  This piece of equipment is amazing because it’s so portable and really enhances every single exercise ensuring your body gets a killer workout.  We still incorporate the kickboxing combinations as it really drives her heart rate up and will keep her working towards her goals.

This is one client that walks the walks and talks the talk when it comes to her fitness goals.  Nothing will get in her way of her success.  This is someone that all women struggling with their goals should aspire to be like.

Shantelle is the owner of MsFit Designs and is extremely busy filling orders into the wee hours of the night.  Between that and juggling 2 kids she still finds time for herself.  Shantelle joined our Mission:Slimpossible challenge back in January  and lost 3 lbs, 2.5% body fat and 6.75 total inches!  She has participated on and off in our classes for the past 2 years. Here is her story:

I am a busy mother or two, a wife and business owner and for many years I put the needs of my family and business before myself. It all started two years ago when I decided I needed a change a big change. I still had 40 pounds of baby weight to lose, was super tired all the time and just really unhappy with myself. Over the years I have tried the gym, local classes around town, yoga, you name it I’ve tried it and nothing was working. I found Alexis on Facebook and decided to give her classes a try. Two years later and I have lost over 20 pounds and feel amazing! I think her classes are great, they are always challenging, fun and full of such great women. I was also very happy with how Alexis was super informative and helpful whenever you had a question.

This year I decided to try the Slimpossible challenge and I have been unbelievably happy with the results and the meal plan. The meals where super tasty, easy to prepare and of course really healthy.
I am definetly one happy customer! Thanks Alexis for bringing my sexy back 🙂
