Headline: Meet PTC success story Tony Holladay

One of the best things about working in the fitness industry? Seeing our clients make incredible transformations — hands down! Tony Holladay made a commitment to get healthy last fall, and in that time, he’s lost about 60 pounds. Today, he shares a little bit about his fitness journey. 

What inspired you to schedule your first appointment?
I’ve known for a while that I needed to lose weight and get in better shape. My daughter and her boyfriend suggested I contact PTC trainer Fran Martin, and I decided it was time to improve my quality of life from a health perspective. For me, making up my mind was the hardest step. Once I got started, the momentum just grew.

What changes were you hoping to make in your life?
In addition to losing weight, I wanted to get stronger and build my endurance … and I’m definitely seeing a difference! I’ve lost about 60 pounds, and my core is a lot stronger, which has a positive effect on everything else, like balance. 

What is your favorite thing about working with Fran?
I look forward to my workouts, which are scheduled three times a week. The more I see results, the more I want to keep going. Plus, Fran and I have developed a camaraderie, and we always have a good time. 

How has your life improved since you began your journey?
I feel 200 percent better. In addition to the weight loss, I feel a lot better about myself when I look in the mirror and go out in public. My quality of life is so much better. Even little things like getting out of a chair are so much easier … I just stand up now without even thinking about it. 

What would you tell someone who is thinking about taking the leap?
Do it! The biggest part is making up your own mind and convincing yourself that you can do this — but I’m a living example that it can be done. You just have to put your mind to it and stay motivated.
