After a lot of aerobic exercise and doing some self -guided "weight" workouts at home using dumb bells and my Bowflex, I managed to lose the weight I wanted to lose over about a year. But, at 47 years of age, when I decided to really build my body up I went to Larry!
I've been greatly pleased with the results in only a few months. He was immediately able to help me focus my goals and instruct me in safe ways to achieve them. The workouts are intense but the results are noticeable to me and other people in my life. The difference between a session working with Larry and one on my own is amazing. I could never have gotten such great results so quickly without his help.
I guess I should admit up front: I wasn’t over 40 when I started with Larry. I was 35. But, like a lot of older people, I was fighting an uphill battle to stay fit. Five years prior to meeting Larry I broke my left elbow. Two surgeries, countless hours of physical therapy…and I could still barely lift a phone book with my left arm.
I was an active person prior to that accident; I knew the benefits of exercise and I sorely missed being fit. I tried everything I could think of to get better, from fitness books to dieting to running until my knees hurt to trying personal training at a local gym. But for all my effort, the only thing I achieved was gaining 20 pounds and losing even more muscle mass. I had all but given up hope.
Although I am not over 40, I am definitely fit and that is in large part thanks to Larry Johnson — I cannot recommend his personal training services strongly enough.
I came to Larry in February of 2013, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. I was in relatively good shape, but I wanted to be bigger. I wanted a body that stood strong with the muscles of a well-developed man. I had been training with P90X for a few years, and Larry was able to point out that the type of exercises I was doing would serve only to enhance my muscles, not to make them grow like I wanted them to. I sensed very early on that Larry knew what he was talking about.
