#SnapNation Success Story: Todd R.

2014-06-10 | By: Snap Fitness

As a father of two, at 510 pounds, Todd R. decided to change his life forever.  He and his wife signed up at the Caledonia, Michigan Snap Fitness in December of 2012. Since then he’s lost more than 228 pounds.


“It was shortly after my youngest daughter had heart surgery,” Todd said. “I was determined to get healthy and be there for my wife and daughters.”


His determination worked. Even on days when he felt tired and didn’t want to go to the gym, he gave it his all. He also reduced his caloric intake to 1,500 calories and started a food journal to monitor his progress.  


“I feel great, I just get this sense of accomplishment every time I complete a workout,” he said. “I couldn’t have done it without all the support from my Snap Fitness and my family.”


Todd’s next goal is to lose 30 more pounds and reach his goal weight of 250lbs. He doesn’t plan to slow down on his visits to Snap Fitness one bit. 


“I don’t want to slip back into my old habits and gain it all back,” he said. “Even after reaching my goal, I want to continue to work out and live a healthy lifestyle.”


Congrats, Todd! We can’t wait to see what else you accomplish at Snap Fitness!
