Don Matthias Story

In college playing football, I was 275. But it was distributed differently, to put it nicely. And life got busy, had kids, a career. And I became one of those people that didn't work out. And then I think I just realized that I was out of shape. And I think that it just as a trigger, just like I need to do something, I asked for a trainer that would hold me accountable and push me. 

Five. I need you to exhale. 

Big part of it was my trainer Shaun. And he is all that. 

It had nothing to do with me at all. I just looked him in his eyes I asked him, I said are you interested or are you committed. He was committed. Don was definitely committed. And I said, Don, you want to get all Shaun. feel free to text me at 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 in the morning. I'm going to always respond. It's my purpose is to develop people. 

He had that unique ability to care about our results. But also was interested in everyday life. Shaun's all about changing lives. 

Go, Two, straight up. 

I used to crave sweets and bread and carbs. And now, it's not there. I was just back in for a physical and my doctor was like, what are you doing. Because he was amazed at my weight loss and the bloodwork that came back. He's like, this is all changed. 

Oh, my goodness. Don started exuding confidence, I mean, walking a little better. It makes me feel great. I mean, I go home and I brag about Don to my wife, to my friends, to my family. 

When I started working out and committed this time I was 270. And now I'm under 230. 

I'm just very proud of him. Because I know it's a lot of hard work. 

That's it. All the way up. He deserves to be in the best shape of his life again. Like he is on pace to look better than he did in college. 

You know, if I needed to help somebody else and help them believe that they could do the same thing, I would say it's success. But I'm not done yet.
