Creating Optimal Wellbeing
“I was 37 years old and I was at a low point. My life was completely out of balance. I was working more than 10 hours a day and I began using food as my reward to get through those long shifts. After gaining 50 pounds, I was obese.”
Greg was burnt out physically, emotionally, and financially. He had no time for social gatherings with his friends and only saw his family on holidays.
“I was so out of shape that I couldn't do my favorite things like surfing, yoga, and snowboarding. I was embarrassed and frustrated because every single diet I tried didn’t work. I had even tried training with a triathlon coach five days a week with no success.”
Greg began to attribute his obesity to genetics and didn’t think there was anything he could possibly do to achieve a healthy weight.
“When I heard about OPTAVIA and saw the science behind it, I decided to give it a try. I was blown away. With some dedication and the support of my OPTAVIA Coach, I lost 50 pounds in 10 weeks*. I had a Coach that kept me on track, I wasn't hungry, and I had tons of energy.”
By continuing to implement the Habits of Health, Greg has been able to maintain his healthy weight.
“Today, I feel like I can do anything. I can partake in activities like yoga, surfing, and wakeboarding again. Even though I’m in my 50s, I feel like I'm in my 30s.”
Greg wanted to help others find the same success he found so he decided to become an OPTAVIA Coach.
“Not only has becoming an OPTAVIA Coach been rewarding for me personally by helping others improve their lives, it has also kept me accountable to my own lifestyle.”
Now my mission is to help others who feel like they're stuck when their life is out of balance. I love helping people get healthy and creating optimal wellbeing.”
