I'm not only the president, I'm also a client. ;)

My story? I have been a certified fitness professional since 1995. Even being a fitness professional, I still had my slip ups and weight fluctuations. This picture is the exact opposite of what you'd believe. On the left, I was teaching 25+ classes per week AND working out on my own. I was working out approx. 26 hours PER WEEK.  I was easily burning over 3,000 calories per day. In my mind, I thought I was invincible and that rules didn't apply to ME. I'd leave work and head over to some fast food drive thru. I'd justify my poor eating habits with the fact that I was burning SO many calories per day. "I earned this meal! I burned like 2700 calories today, so I'm treating myself to these cupcakes!" I thought there was just NO WAY I'd gain any weight!! WRONG! It was then, when I was THE MOST ACTIVE, that I gained all the weight! This is when I started to look, learn and study about certain foods and how they affect our bodies. I was SO shocked to learn all the interesting facts about how the body reacts to certain foods. It's not just about Calories IN vs. Calories OUT - there are MANY other factors involved with fitness and fat loss goals and M6M breaks it all down for you.
