karen's back pain disappeared and she lost 12 pounds!
Karen says, “The Perfect Workout gets down to the mechanics of the muscles, to make sure they’re working correctly every time.” Now that Karen’s lost 12 lbs. in three months, she’s a believer. Her confidence has increased, and at 49, she has more energy than ever.
When Karen Edwards started going to The Perfect Workout’s Park Cities studio in February, she didn’t expect such rapid results. A friend had told her how effective the training was, but Karen was skeptical. Karen works a high-stress job as a nurse, and before The Perfect Workout, “My body would be so tense all the time, it was hard for me to keep up.”
Her back issues used to prevent her from doing strength workouts—she gave up lifting weights because it made the inflammation worse. She tried going to a physical therapist, but “they only focused on the now— how my body felt in the moment. The Perfect Workout gets down to the mechanics of the muscles, to make sure they’re working correctly every time.” Now that Karen’s lost 12 lbs. in three months, she’s a believer. Her confidence has increased, and at 49, she has more energy than ever.
With the help of her trainer, Emily, she’s been able to overcome her back issues to take on all of The Perfect Workout’s strength exercises. In fact, slow-motion strength training has made her pain disappear altogether. “Emily knows me so well. She always works hard to balance my workouts and respond to my body’s needs. Her personal attention has been the biggest help in getting rid of my back pain.” One of the biggest surprises for Karen was realizing she actually enjoys working out. “I love how much Emily pushes me to be my best. The arm workouts are my favorite—they stretch out my shoulder blades and make me feel great. Muscle success? Bring it on!”
Karen is seeing the results of her training outside the studio, too. Her clothes fit better, and she’s happier with the way she looks. Plus, she has more energy to do the things that give her joy, like playing with her ten nieces and nephews, and going out to dinner with friends. Her newfound strength has also made her more effective at refurbishing furniture, a favorite hobby she taught herself how to do a few years back. Not worrying about throwing out her back in the process has made her more focused on the work, which she finds enjoyable and lets her show off her toned muscles. The people in Karen’s life have noticed the changes, too. They see how energetic she is now, and have commented on her slimmer figure. “I’ve told everyone about The Perfect Workout. Even my boss wants to go!” Karen isn’t stopping here. “I want to keep up my momentum and stick to my two workouts a week with Emily. I know I’m going to get stronger and stronger!”
