My Snap Fitness Success Story: Mike D.'s Three Year Weight Loss Journey

2013-12-22 | By: Snap Fitness

Three years ago, Mike D. wasn’t in a place he wanted to be physically.

He weighed 300 pounds, his health was deteriorating and, worst of all, he felt like he wasn’t the best role model for his son. That’s when he realized it was time for a change.

“I joined the Snap Fitness in Edmonton, AB, and decided to really challenge myself,” he says.

Thanks to the tremendous staff at trainers at his club, Mike began to drop the fat, build muscle, and start feeling better about himself.

“I knew I needed to be an example for my son, and show him what you can accomplish through hard work,” he says proudly. “On top of that, when my wife and I got married I wasn’t a fat guy, and it was important to get back into shape and be that guy she married. Who wants to lie next to a naked fat guy?”

In the past three years, Mike has dropped 70 pounds and has even gone on to participate in a physique contest to show off his new body.

“I’ve had great mentors and coaches since joining Snap Fitness, and I’m proud of the transformation they’ve helped me to achieve,” he says. “I’m looking forward to setting new goals and proving it to myself that I can go even further.”
