Chris before after 7 Before & After

“Before I finally made a phone call to Samantha, I had seen her articles and advertisements in our local paper for several years! During those years, I gained about 10 pounds each year with a combination of bad eating habits, a stressful job and no exercise. At the beginning of last year I went on a cruise with my mother and when I got back I looked at the photos we took. I could not believe the person in the photos was me – how had I become so out of shape? I thought I didn’t have time to work out but Samantha convinced me that I had to make time and also make the changes in my eating habits to become healthy and lose weight. The time I have spent with Samantha has been one of the best investments I’ve made in my life – she has inspired me to eat healthier and how to work out effectively to lose the fat I needed to lose without losing muscle. She has shown me a way that I can follow for the rest of my life. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 4 in 7 months and I’ve lost over 138 inches all over my entire body! I feel better and have more energy than I have in years. I encourage you to give her a call today – don’t waste another day! You can do it too with her help.”

“My New Years resolution for 2010 was to get back into shape and to improve my health. I was turning 40 in May and I wanted to make a significant change in my life but knew that it would not be easy for I did not want to start a program or a diet and give up like I had done for the past 10 years. We have two beautiful boys and like most mothers, I have struggled with weight ever since I gave birth. My boys are eight years apart and I started to feel like I did not have the energy to keep up with my youngest son. I was afraid that I was not going to be able to play with him the way I did with my older son because I was so much older and out of shape.

When I met with Samantha we talked about fitness, health, healthy eating, nutrition, family, Christianity and my goals. She shared inspirational material with me to include, audio CD’s and prayer cards. Samantha also provided me with a healthy eating manual, which I keep in my gym bag to this day and refer to often.

I started training at Pure Personal Trainer in a small group and the best part about it was that even though you were training in a group, everyone had different strengths and levels of fitness so our trainer adjusted the weights and repetitions according to each person’s fitness level.

When I eat something now, I think about how badly I really want it and if it will be worth it once I shove it in my mouth and swallow it. I eat one slice of pizza with a salad now versus 4 slices of pizza. I make better choices as Samantha taught me that I am not dieting…eating healthier is a way of life for me now.

My best advice for anyone who has been challenged with trying to loose weight is to invest the money in working with a personal trainer, because that will give you the jump start you need and trainers will push you like no one else will. Also, remember that healthy eating and exercise is a way of life and not a diet. You have to set goals for yourself and stick with them. Work out with a friend or make a new friend at the gym where you train because accountability is everything.”

“I can’t believe the difference I can see and feel in only 2 weeks!”

“YES! I am feeling SOOOO good about my results! I’m 56, 5’2″ and I’ve lost 3 pants sizes and almost my height in inches of fat! THANK YOU SAMANTHA!”

It only took a year and a half for my weight to climb up 30 pounds and my body to become unrecognizable. This happened from a stressful job, late night eating and chocolate had become my best friend. I realize now I ate a LOT of chocolate!! That added up to a sugar addiction, mood swings and weight gain. Yuck! I looked and felt dumpy. I looked and felt OLD and UGLY and my clothes kept getting tighter and tighter. Every time I looked into the mirror I hated what I had become. I loathed myself and how I looked. I had no clue how to get out of this “ever expanding woman” syndrome and I felt a bit more hopeless – not good. I’d seen Samantha’s ads and the photos always caught my attention. I knew I needed help to get myself back. I knew I needed to be educated about what, when and how to eat. Also I like the concept of accountability. I like having a well defined plan and having someone mentor me through that plan. I must experience success or I will lose interest and give up. Samantha’s ads and testimony on her web site gave me the belief that I would experience success with her. I set very high standards for myself and Samantha set them higher. When I turned 56 in August a week later I called Samantha for an interview. I did not like being asked how I was going to change my life so that I could succeed at her program but I knew I would do whatever I needed to do to get myself back. And I knew that Samantha had the knowledge, skills, talent to assist me on that journey. Her program was absolutely what I needed. Samantha is the most determined person I have ever met. I made my commitment not only to her but to myself as well. I can honestly say it was NOT difficult but it took determination, patience and consistent dedication. I did NOT feel deprived; I felt empowered and that is VERY important to me! I understood the mistakes I made in portion sizes and the timing of my meals. Being free of my cravings for chocolate within 1 week was amazing! And I lost 26″ in the first 4 weeks. Wahoo!

leslie power1 Before & After

Samantha gave me the tools, education and encouragement to get myself back. She has given me all that I need to go forward in my journey as a strong, healthy, empowered, slim and fit woman. I LOVE who I am and how I look. I even love how I feel after a good workout when I have proven to myself that I can do what seemed impossible just 12 weeks ago. My decision to work with Samantha was a life changing decision. What she taught me has changed how I look, feel and how I will live my life forever. Wow!!!! THANKS Samantha!” – Leslie Atkins

I Feel 100% Better than I did 6 Months Ago!

“When I contacted Pure Personal Trainer in late June, I was desperate. I felt terrible about myself – I didn’t like my body, the way I felt and the way I looked in my clothes. I had been a chronic stress-eater and was never one to pay attention to portion sizes. I was suffering from a serious sugar addiction and would snack on cookies and chips late at night. I was completely frustrated – I would try to work out but by the end of the day, I had absolutely no energy. I would make attempts to eat healthier but the sad fact was, I didn’t even understand what “healthy” meant. I decided that I HAD to make a change when I saw a picture of myself from a recent vacation and I couldn’t believe how big I let myself get. I didn’t even recognize myself anymore!

sara before after Before & After

The moment I walked into Samantha’s office and started talking to her I knew I found what I was searching for. I had realistic goals and I was willing to put in the time and effort to lose the weight the healthy way. Samantha was fantastic. She was able to relate to my personal story and actively listened to me. She shared her background with me and I could tell she was confident she could help me achieve my fitness goals. We worked out a plan together and when I left her studio that night I felt that a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I had confidence that I was going to get the results I wanted and it felt wonderful to regain control. I realized that I had made a change from feeling sorry for myself to being empowered and taking control over my habits again. I was truly energized and so excited to put my plan into action with Samantha’s guidance! Over the next three months I underwent the biggest transformation of my life as I worked out with one of Samantha’s personal trainers, Chris Williams, only three days a week. I completely kicked my dependence on food for comfort as I followed Samantha’s inspiration and incorporating healthy food into my life. I saw immediate results both in my physical appearance and in the way I felt. Each week as I saw the pounds melting away, it gave me even more inspiration to work harder. I was transforming my lifestyle and that was a key attribute to my success.

sara gordon clothes Before & After

I have achieved all my goals and more…I have lost 35 pounds and have gone from a size 12/13 to a size 5/6. My waist size has changed dramatically – when I began seeing Samantha, I was squeezing myself into a size 32 waist in jeans. Now, I can easily fit into a size 27 which feels fantastic! I tell Samantha and Chris that they are the best thing that ever happened to me and I mean that from the bottom of my heart! I feel like a totally different person now than I did 6 months ago. I am actually excited for beach season this year and I cannot wait to go bathing suit shopping. I can’t remember another time in my life in which I had more confidence in my appearance. I have changed my lifestyle and my entire view on health and fitness. I love the food I eat and I am never hungry! I enjoy exercising now and have all the energy I need to get through the day and more. I feel that I am living to my true potential; I have a healthy body, mind and spirit. Samantha gave me the tools and guidance I needed to change my life and I embraced them whole-heartedly. I can say that, without a doubt, I feel 100% better than I did before I started with her. I start each day by looking at myself in the mirror and actually being HAPPY with the person I see looking back at me. Now, I look the way I have always wanted to look and my husband can’t believe the results either! I can honestly say that my results have surpassed even my expectations. Don’t spend another day feeling bad about yourself or your appearance. You have the power to change your life for the better and to maintain an active lifestyle. I will never allow myself to go back to my old habits. I am a new person thanks to Samantha and Chris at Pure Personal Trainer!” – Sara

Classy Consignment is a great consignment shop right down the street from the studio. She is in the same plaza as K-Mart, on Collier and 54 and I have gotten some of my most FAVORITE outfits there. It’s a great place to also get clothes as you are losing weight, if you need some in between sizes at great prices. Tell her you know me and you can get $10 off a purchase of $30 or more. You will love it!

“The day I met Samantha, it changed my life. Before I met her, I felt invisible because of the continuing frustrations I had with my weight. Now I don’t feel invisible anymore! ** I WAS BUSTING OUT OF A 14, BUT NOW I CAN EASILY FIT INTO A SIZE 6! ** I was consumed by negative feelings about myself. I would fight myself all day long between eating, starving and binging; caught in a circle of guilt. Thoughts of food were obsessive, food was my consolation. My very first visit with Samantha changed my life. She had so much energy and this amazing belief in her own ability to help me be successful. She made me believe that I too could realize my personal goal, with a lot of hard work. I have lost 30 pounds and 50” in 12 weeks! It’s not just about reaching a number on the scale. I have changed inside; the way I think about food and myself. I’m a different, more confident person now with tons of energy. I have never felt healthier in my life. I have never been more motivated. Nothing tempts me. The old me always gave into temptation. The new me is excited to be alive and feeling good. My clothes are too big! I had to go shopping! And . . .the best part is I don’t feel invisible anymore!” – Laura 52

“As a mother of four children over the last 12 years I’ve not devoted much time to myself, and as a result I developed issues with weight.

Samantha not only shows you what’s given her success, but also explains the mechanics behind the exercise and food. She’s great!” * Lori

OF FAT! ** I really can’t believe how easy the transformation has been. I only wish I had called Samantha sooner!” – Karen

Kris said she was amazed when she saw better results with me in 4 weeks then she saw on her own in 4 months!

Susan’s testimonial continued from article:

“I always told myself that once things slowed down at work, I’d try to lose weight. The only problem was that work never slowed down. After being overweight for several years, I finally decided to take action, but had no idea how to begin. I thought it would be a long and difficult process to slim down. Luckily, I was wrong. It turned out to be much easier than I expected and I have now lost over 40 pounds!

I’ve never worked with a personal trainer and had quite a few fears. I was afraid it would hurt to lift weights. I was afraid that I would develop big muscles. I was afraid that I would need to work out constantly to lose weight. I was afraid that I would never eat the things that I enjoyed. Well, none of these fears came true. Samantha helped me put everything together and calmed my fears.

I learned that I don’t need to be obsessive about exercise or my diet in order to lose weight. I learned how to balance the amount of food I eat with the amount of exercise that I do. I have so much more control of my body now. I feel empowered. I feel that I can continue to monitor myself and continue to lose weight. I’m looking forward to the day when I can fit into the size I wore in college! Thank you Samantha, for teaching me how to find balance.

Geoff’s testimonial continued from article in the paper:

Several years ago, I decided that I wanted to begin bicycling again. I was out of shape and had fond memories of my “fit” days in high school when I used to ride my bike everywhere (even after I bought my first car). Back then, my bicycle was not only a means of transportation, it was something fun to do to stay healthy. I went out to the local bike shop and purchased a new road bike, intent on restoring my body to the slim and fit self I remembered so well. Unfortunately, after several years of riding I had actually managed to gain weight and my cycling hadn’t really improved at all (still as slow as when I first started again).

My wife and I decided to see Samantha early in 2006 because we decided that it was time for a change. I had decided to participate in the MS150 ride, a 172 mile two day charity cycling event to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the date was fast approaching. With that goal in mind and the hope of carrying less weight with me on those 172 miles, I went to Samantha hoping that she could help me prepare for the event. I had never worked with a trainer before and, to be honest, working out with weights intimidated me. I never really learned how to use any of the equipment in a gym and I really didn’t understand the principles of weight training. Moreover, I didn’t really understand anything about how to eat (perhaps that’s why I managed to gain weight while cycling semi-regularly).

During the five months we’ve worked with Samantha I’ve – Lost over 40 pounds and 10 inches from my waistline – Gained a solid foundation in the mental and physical aspect of working out with weights – Learned how to push my body to new limits while becoming so much more in tune with my body’s needs – Learned how to manage my food to keep not only keep the weight off but also to keep my body functioning at peak athletic performance – Increased my average cycling speed by over 4 MPH

- Increased my weekly cycling mileage to over 100 miles per week

With Samantha’s personal training, I feel freer than I’ve ever felt before. I’ve learned so much and I’ve become so self-sufficient that I will never again be a slave to bad eating habits or laziness. What’s even better is that, as my health has improved, I’ve found that I enjoy cycling more now than at any other time in my life. Thank you Samantha for your help and your support, I truly couldn’t have accomplished so much in so little time without you!”

“Are you next? You will get phenomenal results when you work with me! Are you ready for it? You are the only one who can make the decision to take action and make a change. Don’t wait another day, week, month, year – then oops, 5-10 years have gone by and you ask yourself how did my body and my health get this way?! Invest in your present and your future self, call me for your consultation.”
