Chino Hills Personal Trainer -It’s time to put up or shut up

A few weeks ago I ran into my very good friends Elaine Maxwell and Christina Del-Rosario at RA sushi in Chino Hills.

We were talking a bit and I noticed that Elaine was very unhappy about the way she looked. She said that due to a back injury she hasn’t been able to work out and therefore has gained 20lb.

Of course I knew that that’s not all there is to it.  So I asked about her diet and she admitted having an affair with In-N-Out double double on a regular basis. 🙄

So, being a proud fitness expert I issued a challenge to her. It’s called “put up or shut up”. (OK I deleted a word there that wasn’t appropriate).

You see to us fitness trainers there is nothing worse, I MEAN NOTHING WORSE than someone complaining about how they look without doing anything about it.

It reminded me of my insecure girlfriend in college who wasn’t happy about her body but when it came down to going to the gym she had more excuses than a pregnant nun.

I hope you are reading this post Ginger. lol  (yes that was her name. Real name)

Now remember Elaine actually has a valid excuse for not working out her back is really in bad shape. (she is like 6’0″ tall or maybe I am just short) but what’s the excuse with the love affair with In-N-Out.

On the opposite side of my college girlfriend is my beautiful wife Johnette. She thinks the gym is like Disneyland. If you let her,  she will workout all day and night.

Sam, watch out because I am determined to win this bet; however, honestly I feel like I’ve won already. There is no losing in this contest but I’m still not going to let you take my money 🙂 I win no matter what. Belinda, thank you so much for the encouragement and nice comments. I checked out your website the other day and you have an amazaing story and transformation. You inspire me.
