Client of the Month:
Garage Gym will be announcing a client of the month for all of 2012. Our January winner is...
One word describes Brendan. Dedicated.
Brendan started training with us 2 years ago. We lived in a small ranch just outside of Oneida and we had a 1 stall attached garage, in which I trained a handful of clients after my full-time day job. Brendan jumped on board with us, wanting to become healthier and re-claim his highschool conditioning levels. Brendan drove 50 min from syracuse 2-3x per week to train in our garage. We moved to our new location ( 20 min farther from Brendan), last year. Jan 2011. Brendan was the first client who stepped into the doors at Garage Gym coming to group class 2-3x per week. You might be asking yourself....what does he do for a living that allows him the time to travel and train like that? Brendan is a full-time attorney working 45-55 hours a week, has a wife, a great soccer player of a daughter and another child on the way (congrats). Brendan has plenty of excuses, drive is too long....work takes up too much time...we have too much stuff going on...etc...
Guess what? Brendan never misses his private sessions with me, even in bad weather...hes a champ, hes dedicated.
6 months ago Brendan upgraded his group class package to a private package. He meets with me 2x per month 1-1 and follows a structured program design at his home, completing 2-3 workouts a week.
During our 6 weeks reviews often times the topic of a healthy body = a healthy mind = a healthy life, come up. Brendan is 100% on board with the importance of this and his understanding of long term fitness goals versus short term "fixes".
On a side note some stats:
Clean and Jerk 145lb at a bodyweight of 165
Runs a 6:34 mile
Has competed in both the Garage Gym Games- Finishing all the events as prescribed (no easy task)
For that reason, Brendan has earned the Garage Gym Member of the Month.
