Journey (4)


Member Showcase: John Sabo

John joined us over a year ago for one of our Ripped Dads contests.  He won that contest in a runaway and more importantly, he gained a complete mindset shift and a permanent transformation.

John was our member of the month in Hillsborough for the month of April.

Here you can hear him in his own words talking about his journey to weight loss and more energy:

Why It Didn’t Work For You…

I remember back when I was 17, first playing around with an extreme muscle building diet which was off the charts hard for me at the time.

I failed.

Listen, we have all tried and failed at fitness and nutrition before.

If you found the program too complex….

If you weren’t enjoying the process….

If you were dependant on a ‘fake expert’….

Then you were guaranteed to fail.

The answer is, then, to have a Coach or Coaches that’ll simplify the journey.

Remember, fitness isn’t supposed to be your life. It is supposed to enhance your life. If it’s wearing you out and making you feel overwhelmed, then you are on the wrong path.

The answer to overwhelm is: never more.

Have You Seen This?

Two Sundays ago, Devon and I watched the movie, Free Solo.

And the funny thing is, my palms were sweating from the get go, literally.

It’s about a man, who has a dream of attempting to climb a 3,000 foot summit, straight up, with no safety ropes or none of that.

Now, not saying that you have to have ambitions to do that, but it should be a lesson to us all that we greatly underestimate what we are capable of.

When it comes to human achievement, impossible is just a concept that you’ve bought into.

Yes, the journey will be hard.

Yes, it will be full of struggles, but it will be worth it.

Check out the movie and remember, inspiration can be found anywhere.

Member Showcase: Pistol Pete

PETE ROMANYSZYN

Here is Pistol Pete’s fitness journey in his own words.  It’s not all roses, he owns it and he has inspired through it.

“I was a whopping 5lbs14oz at birth, full term, which is when I was forced into my “bulking” phase; yup they would wake me up to feed me. It kinda went all downhill from there. I was a very active kid, always involved in organized sports and pick up games with my friends. I thank god that we didn’t get an Atari when I was that age, I still suck at most video games. So being the “big” kid I never got to play Pop Warner football and always wore number 13 playing baseball because it was the biggest uniform. In high school I continued to play sports but never got any real or for that matter bad coaching in the realm of weightlifting or nutrition.

I went right into medic school after high school and then started my EMS career. I would routinely work six 12 hour shifts a week between a full time job and two part time jobs, sometimes I’d have a 24 hour shift sprinkled in for fun. Fast food was life, mixed in with some awesome ethnic food depending whether I was in Perth Amboy, Elizabeth or New Brunswick. I GOT LARGE. So I joined the health center at the hospital and I would go in and put in an hour of completely haphazard work, but I broke a sweat so it counted for something. Then came the low carb high protein with the pills diet plan, it worked but not anything sustainable, probably because they had to reformulate the pills something about hearts blowing up with prolonged use.

I had the big career change and got academy fit. I dropped about 15 pounds before the academy and about another 15 or twenty while I was in. I was in good condition walking out. I made on and off attempts at working out at a box gym over the next years, bought an elliptical for home, yada, yada, yada. I gained and gained until I maxed out at about 323 lbs. and realized I had some problems. I got put on meds by my doc for cholesterol and diabetes, BAM smacked in the face!!! I started using a phone app that tracks all of your ins and outs and had success because I was holding myself accountable.

This is when my fitness journey began in earnest. I was introduced to Newell Strength as a client in a fat shredder contest. Not gonna lie it kicked my ass. The first couple of weeks I’d go to the gym then get home walk through the door and LITERALLY lay down on the floor and sleep. Seems like a long time ago. Since then I’ve become part of the tribe and continue on my transformation journey. I’ve gotten off of the meds and normalized my blood work, which is a huge positive. I’ve made physical changes that are drastic enough that people notice and comment which is a big boost to the ego and makes me want to continue putting in the work.

I’ve had periods of great focus and success as well as periods of no focus, no workouts and downward trends. It’s my path, I own it positive and not so positive.”
