Starting Weight: 272 lbs.
Ending Weight: 245 lbs.
After a serious back surgery, I was left unable to do the same exercises I would have normally done at the gym. Mike taught me how to be successful in the gym, and how to prevent any more injuries. Throughout this process, I lost a total of almost 30 pounds, but I gained a friend and a better understanding of how diet and exercise work. Whether it is recovering from a previous injury like myself, or simply wanting to reach your weight loss goals, I highly recommend training with Mike.Chey
On my own it took 2.5 hours at the gym to lose maybe 0.4 lbs a week if that, because of my PCOS. With Mike, I work out 30-40 minutes, eat the right things for my body and drop at least 1-2 lbs a week, sometimes more. I was working hard before, now its just a lot smarter. I have more energy, less mental fog/anxiety and look better. I know how to eat for my body and how to achieve my goals. If you’re ready to work hard, Mike can help get you where you want to be. But you better be ready to do the work.Lisa
Before I started training with Mike Mills I weighed 227 pounds, could not touch my toes, and was suffering from sciatic nerve pain. Mike set me on a strict weight loss program, taught me the importance of stretching everyday, and help me with my sciatica. 12 weeks later I weighed in today at 198 lbs., I can now touch my toes and my sciatica is history. Mike Mills had a lot to do with giving me the knowledge to live a healthier lifestyle.Stephen Drinkard
I view investing in Mike’s Imaging Program as an investment in myself. I told him I wanted to lose weight and improve my health, sleep, energy, fitness, & self-discipline, and Mike has helped me focus on how to make those goals a reality. I had some success on my own before starting with him, but it was much slower with starts and stops that lasted longer than I’d have liked. And I was never sure that what I was doing what what I should be doing to get the results I wanted. Mike helped bring clarity to my journey towards being a better me, and made my program customized to my personal goals. I was really interested to work with him but was worried about the fact that I would have to be an online client due to living in another city. I shouldn’t have worried! He uses all the tools available to him – Skype calls, email, photos, Google docs, texting, etc. to communicate effectively with me. Any time I have questions or concerns, he has always gotten back to me within 24 hours – sometimes within minutes! And he goes the extra mile to make sure I understand the reasons behind his choices for me. I’ve gotten email explanations, journal entry notes, Skype conversations, and even articles that describe the whys of my program. He takes the guesswork out of things for me, and allows me to focus on my goals – while still allowing me to learn about the process behind WHY I am doing these things, just at my own pace (something I requested before even beginning the program). He is driven & passionate in his own life and brings that to the table with me. He makes me want to be better, and makes me believe I can achieve my goals of health and fitness (and a rockin’ body too, let’s be honest here). I have accomplished more than I thought possible in the time I have worked with him, & my body has responded tremendously well to the program he created for me. At one point after beginning my program with him, I lost 8 lbs in just 2 weeks without working out a single day WHILE having a virus – just by sticking to what he gave me to do. Mike is very patient and because of the continuous communication and support, things like getting sick/hurt or traveling are now things I am learning how to incorporate into my life as I lose weight and get stronger rather than things that stop my progress. I’m very glad I signed up with him & I can’t wait to see what comes next!Ainsley
This morning, I want to give a huge Shout Out and an even bigger Thank You to my Personal Trainer, Mr. Mike Mills.
I give Mike a lot of grief on here because when I leave the gym, I am usually worn slap out. However, that is actually a great thing. That means Mike is doing his job. I believe the results to this point will back me up on that.
When I first started going to Mike, I was at the heaviest point of my life, a massive 323 lbs. I could no longer fit into my 2X shirts, was uncomfortable, and a complete blob of a mess. To make this worse… I didn’t believe I could do what was being asked of me.
You see, back in April of 2001 I was in a car accident that left my back pretty messed up. After multiple back and neck surgeries, I had just pretty much given in to the fact that I would never be able to get back in shape. So I just sat around and ate. Oh don’t get me wrong, I tried physical therapy and would try walking and exercise, but after doing stuff…. I would be down for two days, up to two weeks. So I just threw in the towel.
Well, a friend gave me an offer that I just couldn’t refuse, so I started going to the gym. Mike became my personal trainer at that point and I was totally skeptical. Mike explained to me that if I would put forth the effort and dedication, that he would get me where I wanted to be. He told me to trust him, and talk to him about everything I was feeling. He would know the difference between what was good pain, and bad pain.
When we started off, I was a little agitated. I wanted to do more, move faster… but Mike kept explaining that we would get there. I would see results with what we were doing and to trust him and the process.
Well, that wasn’t easy for me to do.
Withing the first month, I could feel a difference. Slowly, I became more agile and felt a little better. Slowly, I was getting stronger and able to do things I hadn’t done since before the accident. Slowly people started commenting on my appearance, and I could certainly see and feel the difference.
In eight months with Mike, I have made a huge dent in my goals. With him as my trainer and with his guidelines on eating, rest, and of course exercise and weight lifting… I have dropped 83 lbs.
That’s right… an average of 10 lbs a month. That in itself would be great. However, that number doesn’t exactly tell the truth. You see, I may have averaged that in weight… but have actually done so much better. While losing fat, Mike has been slowly adding muscle and definition to my body. So actually, I have lost more than 10 lbs of fat each month, because I have actually added solid muscle.
I truly feel like a different person right now, and am 40 lbs away from the goal is set with Mike in the beginning.
So, the moral of my story.
If you want to make a change in your body, add muscle, lose fat, and feel better. I have a trainer that can help you get to where you want to go. Just reach out to Mr. Mike Mills and go over what it is that you are looking to do for your body. His system will definitely get you there if you will commit.
Thanks Mad Mike…….
You have taken me a long long way. I’m ready for the back stretch of our journey.Trey Mcdowell
