How The Perfect Workout’s program helped Bill lose 20 pounds and gain strength and energy after getting diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer.

Bill's journey began when he was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. He was prescribed a very intense hormone treatment that would cause him to lose muscle, gain weight, and lose energy. But he wasn't going to let that stop him. Here is his story…

Like the businessman he is, Bill looked at his diagnosis and treated it like any strategic decision. He designed what he calls his “business plan” for treating his cancer, which included the following: be inspirational, give back to others, learn how to meditate, don't stop believing in yourself, talk to others about the importance of blood work, get physically stronger, walk often, drink enough water, have good nutrition… and fight, fight, fight.

Knowing he needed to incorporate strength training and nutritional changes to meet some of his strategic plans, Bill looked for personal trainers and private gyms nearby and found our Long Beach location.

“That was a game changer for me.”

And after just three months, Bill could feel a difference, but he pushed himself despite battling the hormone therapy.

He’s now lost over 20 lbs and gained strength and energy that he hadn't had in years.

“My balance is better, I’m mentally sharper, and my steps and movements are quicker.”

At The Perfect Workout, Bill feels like he found a family and a positive atmosphere. Working consistently with his trainer Ray, has been an incredible motivator as well.

“He knows just how far to push me.”

“I really wanted to work with a trainer, to make sure I didn’t backslide with progress. And I love this because it’s structured, not intimidating, and totally tailored to my needs.”

Bill's journey was not just about physical fitness, but also about mental and emotional strength.

He actually thanks his cancer for changing his life.

“If I didn’t have that, I would have continued on, being out of shape”

And now that he’s found his solutions, he’s not holding his breath for the next step.

“The next step is the best possible shape I can be in.”

Bill believes that if he can fight and win, so can anyone else. The Perfect Workout is a significant part of putting his health all together.

“This company is saving my life.”

How did 66 year old Meg Sullivan go from no motivation and weak muscles, to improved endurance, full-body strength and better rock-climbing performance?

Well, here’s her story…

Meg needed help getting back to a regular exercise routine after the 2-year pandemic – during which she rarely exercised and continued to struggle with motivation. She also wanted to get stronger after noticing a loss of muscle mass and increased weakness.

“I bought myself “The Mirror” [at home workout class you can follow along to in a mirror] in one attempt but was unsuccessful doing that regularly.

After many more attempts to establish a consistent exercise routine – not even a specific regimen- Meg was back to square one.

After seeing an ad for The Perfect Workout, she decided to give it a try.

“It's only 20 minutes! I mean, you could stand on your head for 20 minutes if you had to. Plenty of times I haven't felt like going, but then I remind myself, it's only 20 minutes.”

And because of that easy-to-stick-with schedule of 20 minutes, twice a week. Meg has finally been able to stay consistent and hit her goals.

“My upper body strength and leg strength have greatly improved. While rock climbing recently, I had to lift myself up on a ledge using just my upper body and I could do it. I know I would not have been able to do that before.

I also noticed the difference in my leg strength while rock climbing. The big surprise came when hiking for a week in North Carolina. My endurance had significantly improved. I was out front of our hikes with a 30 year old physician while the other folks who were junior to me in age brought up the rear!

I am so pleased with my performance both in my rock climbing and my hiking. I don't want to sound immodest, but it's really cool at 66 to be better than the younger people. I think the other rock climbers were shocked!”

Working one-on-one with her trainers has been such a positive and supportive experience for Meg…

“The research shows that we push ourselves further when we’re working out with a trainer versus working out by ourselves. That is certainly true for me when working with The Perfect Workout trainers. They are great motivators!

Each trainer has been fun to work with, possessing a good sense of humor. And I want to give a HUGE shout out to my trainers who are SO much fun and so inspiring. They’re personable while still being professional, and they are consistently encouraging and supportive. All that makes it easier to push past my inertia on gray days when I don’t feel like going.

After just a year at The Perfect Workout, Meg has gotten back into the workout groove, achieved her strength goals, and now – there’s nothing holding her back.

“I'm much stronger. I have much better endurance and all that makes me happier! I have no concerns about my ability to do any activities I choose. That's a great feeling, especially when you're 66! I cannot recommend this program enough.”
