Yesterday Prime Fitness was witness to the culmination of an amazing personal journey that began in March of 2011. Josh Rosario made a decision to create a much needed change in his life. Reaching a point on the scale that was nowhere near healthy, Josh knew it was time to do something. So the journey began. Over the course of the next 8 months Josh lost an amazing 80 pounds on his own by changing the way he eats and adding a few cardio sessions a week to his exercise routine. This was only the beginning though, as all of us(friends and family) were blown away by his dedication and consistency Josh was encouraged to take it to the next level. Thrilled with his own results Josh knew he could keep pushing. So, Josh joined us here at PRIME FITNESS where he began training his body in a way he never had before. Being part of the Tuesday/Thursday PRIME ENERGY group training was definitely the boost that Josh needed.
The holidays were upon us and PRIME decided a “fitness challenge” was needed to help everyone stay focused during the grey of winter and the temptations of the holiday season. The challenge was simple, who could lose the most body fat percentage by the Thursday before The Super Bowl. The challenge was to last about 10 weeks with everyone throwing $25 into a pot for a little extra incentive for the winner.
The results were in last night and PRIME could not have been more proud of the folks who were part of it all. Between all the participants 47 lbs. of fat was lost and 30 pounds of lean mass(muscle) was gained! Outstanding performances from everyone. As the numbers were tallied and we got down to the winner, what was witnessed next can only be described as truly amazing.
Beginning the contest at 20.42% body fat, the next 10 weeks proved to be just the thing that Josh needed to take it to the next level. The final count for Josh was only a 2.4 pound change on the scale, but his body fat % changed greatly. He completed the contest at 10.9% body!! That means Josh lost 21.52 lbs of fat and gained 19.22 pounds of muscle! Amazing work! Dedication and consistency were Josh’s training partners(with a little help from PRIME ) and we are thrilled to have him as part of the PRIME family. We want everyone out there to know that you can do it. What is your own challenge? What is your goal? It can be anything! Make the decision, turn the page and get started on your own fitness journey, “Don’t Stop Believing”!!
Thank You Josh for your inspiration.
