Rabbi Brian came to me obese, deconditioned and very weak. He also had a bad knee and could barely walk or move. His quality of life suffered greatly from his condition. He was depressed because he couldn't play with his kids or perform simple activities of daily life. He felt like he was a failure to his family and his followers.
This past week he fit into a shirt that he hasn't fit into in a long time, he carried a heavy basket full of vegetables and fruit, up a hill, to his van -he used to need to have someone carry it for him, and he played with his kids, outside, for 4 hours, which was impossible a few weeks ago.
He used to struggle to do simple tasks like closing the back hatch on his van. Now he can close it easily, with one hand. He can now walk much better without a limp.
He is rapidly improving his quality of life and adding years to his life. His morale and confidence are much better and he now has a new sense of hope.
He still has a long road ahead of him. But he is so much better off than he was a month ago.
And that is why I do what I do.
It is so much more than just getting people in shape.
It's about saving lives and empowering people to achieve a higher quality of life.
