My husband and I met Anthony at GNC a few years ago and have always loved picking

his brain about some general nutrition and fitness advice. He has always been very

knowledgeable and methodical with his responses to our questions. We have always had an interest in weightlifting and it is our go-to hobby for our whole family. After having my daughter I was able to rebound fairly quickly.

 

But I noticed that I had reached a plateau that I could not overcome. I battled it off and on for a solid 2 years and started to shift my mentality to be “it is what it is”. Anthony would casually mention, in his humble approach, that he was doing some personal training and coaching and would love to help out if we were interested.

 

I was hesitant about“hiring a trainer” for a few months, but after watching his Instagram account and really getting to understand him and his approach more, I decided I had nothing to lose by giving it a shot with his program.

 

Signing up with Anthony is hands down the best investment I have ever made for my health. In just 4 months I am crushing my goals left and right. His approach as a health and lifestyle coach has not only helped me become leaner, but I am stronger and healthier, both physically and mentally since he has started guiding me. I don’t have to have the “it is what it is” mentality and I can be in control.

 

I refer to him as often as I can. He’s helped friends and family members obtain their own goals and catered to their specific health and wellness needs. Through this process, I have developed life long skills and habits that I can take with me as well as a friendship.

I started working with Anthony Santana onMarch 2018. I had been working out on my own for 2 years prior but was not seeing the results I had hoped for. I was overweight and unhappy with my physical look.

Working with Anthony this past year has helped me lose 20 pounds. He is so patient with me and just laughs off my whining and pushes me to give my best. My strength and endurance have increased, and I am happy with how my physical looks. I enjoy receiving compliments and shopping for fitted clothes that I would normally be too afraid to wear. My confidence is steadily growing every day.

Working with a qualified trainer has not just helped me look better physically, but it has also taught me to be more conscious of my nutrition. Making this lifestyle change has been the best thing I could have done for myself.

My relationship with food was something I never understood, and since nutrition isn’t really taught, I thought I was eating right. But when you hit 250 pounds, something is wrong.

 

I’ve tried and failed at numerous diets throughout my life and had pretty much conceded, that this is me. Being a recovering drug addict, I traded the drugs for food and alcohol and over the last 12 years, my weight continued to climb. To the point where I was 100 pounds overweight, and losing hope.

 

My daughter then told me about Coach Anthony this last December, and really encouraged me to make contact with him to see if he could help me. I was hesitant because the last thing I wanted was another failed attempt under my belt. And I also was embarrassed at reaching out and asking for help. After a couple of months of listening to her, about how much energy she had, and re-learning how to eat, I was still hesitant, because I had such a huge number looming over me of pounds to lose.

 

January 30 of this year, I weighed in at 250 pounds. It was now or never feeling. I contacted Anthony on February 4, 2019, and it is one of the best things I have ever done in my life! Since the first day, we discussed my eating, my relationship with food, and what I hoped to achieve. I did have a hard time understanding everything at first. I thought it was way more complicated than it really was, and I thought to log and measuring was going to consume my life. Quite the contrary. The first two weeks, I dug in deep to understand, I counted every calorie, read every nutrition label, logged every meal, and began to see it all come together. That combined with the phone call support from Anthony, and text support, and understanding that this is a journey… not a race, I started to see and feel the small wins, and my idea of “dieting and weight loss” was the reason I had not been successful before now.

 

He started me off with baby steps, gradually increasing my steps each week and I worked on tightening up my macros. I can honestly say that I have never once felt deprived, I am not starving or miserable. In fact, I eat more food now in a day than I did before! In 12 weeks, I went from a girl who had no motivation, no drive, no energy and no understanding of how to fuel my body, to a girl who is literally climbing mountains, and hiking miles every day. I’ve shed nearly 30 pounds, and over 13.5 inches overall, and my energy is thru the roof. What once was a chore and something I would dread… I now crave and can’t get enough of. The scale no longer defines who I am, the results I am seeing are a combination of my mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as physical. I have never been so motivated! I feel AMAZING! This program has truly changed my life and I can say that this is my new lifestyle, and I love it!! I still have a long way to go, and a lot of weight to lose, but it is no longer haunting me, hanging over me. Every step I take and the more I push myself is bringing me to a freedom I have never had!

 

I am forever grateful for Anthony, he is extremely knowledgeable, and I really feel like that without his guidance and encouragement, I’d still be on that couch, complacent with where I was in life.

This story is not over by a long shot! To be continued….

I have known Anthony for a number of years. Our relationship began at the gym I was working out at and he was training at. We also have some mutual friends also involved in the fitness industry. I saw one of Anthony’s posts one day on social media offering a 90-day nutrition program. I was quickly on board.

 

Being a trainer myself, I realized I had reached a physical plateau and was ready for some proper instruction and guidance nutritionally. We had a consultation and picked a start date. Anthony first took the time to learn about my current eating habits and nutrition levels. He then began to adjust weekly to what my body needs in order to achieve my results. Every week I had new goals, new macros, and several conversations to check in and game plan.

 

He is extremely knowledgeable on what needs adjustment and for how long depending on the weekly outcome. He is also fantastic at making suggestions on different foods and nutrition sources. It’s a wonderful feeling to have someone really understand your body and physical needs. About 3 quarter way through the program I developed some severe stomach issues and could barely eat. Fortunately, I had Anthony in my corner to help with eating suggestions to naturally strengthen my gut and immune system.

 

I still encompass those foods into my daily eating habits to this very day. Additionally, I have already passed on some of that knowledge to friends and coworkers. Spread the word, pass the knowledge right? In the end, I got close to my goals, and the only one to blame was myself for not getting all the way there. Man do I love food! However, I gained some invaluable nutritional tools and macros principles that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Thanks, coach for sticking with me, being patient, and being a great teacher and motivator.

In August of 2014, I stepped on the scale to see that I had reached an all-time high weight of 180 pounds. I was tired, nauseated, had chronic headaches, a blood pressure that was steadily creeping up and I had zero self-confidence and no self-esteem other than to look in the mirror and tell myself how awful I looked.

I began eating better and noticed a pound or two drops off, and then I decided to join a gym. When I was approached by Anthony, I was afraid. Afraid of failing, afraid that I could not handle it and that I would look like a fool. I was wrong!

Anthony began with encouragement. He would push me in ways I would not push myself, always telling me that he was right there, and he was, every step of the way. We began with weekly training sessions, and the results were phenomenal! I was beginning to feel better, and the pounds were melting off. He celebrated every pound with me, encouraging me on to the next goal.

 

When I did not know what to eat, I could text him and he would guide me in the right direction when I was feeling like I could not lift that weight one more time, he reminded me that I could and I did. He would drop and do the last set of push-ups with me just to push me on. Training with him improved my body, my mind, and my spirit 100%. I am in my late 30's and am in better shape mentally and physically than I was in my 20's.

I lost 45 pounds in my 6 months of training with Anthony. It was the best decision of my life. He is more than a trainer. He is a person that cares about his clients well being. He is a great motivation and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to nutrition and fitness routines. Always there, always available and always positive. I cannot thank him enough for the changes he helped to celebrate with me. Training is now a lifetime priority for me, and I have kept the weight off and continue to see positive changes; body and mind.

Before I started with Anthony a was severely lacking in energy and was always tired. I had a feeling I wasn't fulling my body properly. I had never really paid attention to my food before or thought that food could make a d difference in my overall energy during the day.

After the first couple of weeks of working with Anthony and improving my food, I realized I was sleeping better and had more energy throughout the day. We also worked on my water intake and once I dialed that in I notice an even greater improvement in my energy during the day.

I have a very active and challenging job and after working with Anthony it is great to feel like I can accomplish anything in my day because I'm focused and energized.

Improving my nutrition has helped me gain more mental clarity and focus, my clothes fit better and overall have more confidence.

Emotionally I am a lot calmer and have less anxiety because I actually feel in control of my body and how it feels.

To anyone who is on the fence about working with a professional nutritionist, I say go for it. Not only was Anthony a wealth of knowledge and have a personal reason for wanting to help people feel there best, but he has also given me the confidence and education to master my nutrition on my own.

I started working with Anthony because I wanted to lose weight and improve some of my underlying health conditions.

During our time together he was very patient and motivating. Always building my confidence and being there for me every step of the way.

about 2 months in I started to notice my body composition changing and my clothes started fitting a lot better.

Working with Anthony has made an everlasting impression on my and even after we started working together I continued to these weight by implementing the things he has thought me.

Tell this day I am more confident and healthier them I have ever been.

I have developed new healthy habits that will stick with me forever and have kicked a lot of my anxious habits as well.

All my health issues have been resolve or managed as well.

Working with a profession was worth every penny because I am fully confident that I can continue to see improvements all on my own after working with him.
