4 Months of diet and more than 200 hours of weightlifting later~
As an old fencing coach told me one time, "Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect."
That surprised me the first time I heard it, because I'm sure everyone including me grew up hearing just practice will get you there, but now I think understand what he meant. Thanks coach!
Last year: 136 lbs - 16% body fat
This year's competition ~
Start: 148 lbs - 13.9% body fat
End: 159.5 lbs - 8.9% body fat
This gym, and this program have really changed my life in every way for the better.
I feel better, look better, I'm not nearly as self conscious as I used to be. I have more energy on a daily basis. I get out my stress and frustration in the gym. I make friends who care about their own health and fitness , and try to help them learn and grow also. And most of all, I changed my habits, not into a hobby, but into a new lifestyle that I'll maintain forever.
Have been working with Rasaun Rorie at Rapid Results for nine months - he is fantastic trainer and fun to work out with as well. Am 52 years old and when I started was 217lb and size 42" pants (25% or more body fat) - borderline obese with major health issues including blood pressure and cholesterol. Now am 190 pounds and size 34" pants (17% body fat) and no longer taking blood pressure and cholesterol medication. Took my blood pressure today it was 120/79.
Hit my target weight of 190 pounds in the first 3 months and got to about 19% body fat (dropped to size 36" pants). Have progressively worked on improving strength and endurance since then. Fitness is a long term commitment not a quick fix.
The owner LaurieAnn Bonus very efficient and focused on clients success. The atmosphere at the gym between the trainers and clients is warm and friendly.
If you need to get fit and healthy and want help from a trainer then Rapid Results provides professional and flexible training services.
Joining RRPT has been one of the best things I've ever done for myself. The owners Laurie Ann and Todd know their craft. If you are wondering how successful they are, you just need to go by the gym and look at the countless before and after photos they have. They are passionate and serious about giving their clients the information and motivation you need to reach your workout and fitness goals. They love their jobs, their clients, and working out.
I've been a member now for about 6 months and have never felt or looked better. The gym has a fun, laid back, and encouraging atmosphere. I couldn't ask for a better gym experience.
I am proof...168 lbs from 226lbs and 36% body fat to 22.3% BF and still going...This is a lifestyle change not a fad...
I have been going to to Rapid Results for just over 18 months...I can't say enough good about the trainers and how they care for individuals and their needs. I am 44 and have been overweight my entire life, and obese as far as body fat. I finally had enough and decided to walk in and told Laurie Ann I need help. She sat down with me and explained the program and I was sold...In my short time I have gone from a couch potato to someone who loves going to the gym. I still have a long way to go but RRPT has set me on the right course, I was 225, 5' 8", and 36% body fat and miserable...I owe my life to these guys!!
So much has changed…
1) I have not popped single oral steroid in last one year, compared to eating 10-15 pills every 2-3 months
2) My pre-diabetes was cured within 6 weeks of starting my program
3) My lung capacity was 20% when I was hospitalized, it was 58% in Jan 2015 and 70% as of Oct 2015
4) I have not felt the need to use rescue inhalers or nebulizers in last 1 year, preventive inhaler usage has reduced by 50%
5) I started only being able to do 3-4 minutes on cardio, now 30 – 60 minutes is manageable
RRPT has changed my life and my outlook towards life, food and health. Going the gym has become as addictive as food used to be once upon a time. The team at RRPT makes you feel like a family and push you beyond your limits to attain what might be a dream for you. I cannot thank Laurie Ann, Todd, Paula, Randrell and Rasaun enough for helping me in my journey.I am happy to say that while being healthy was the most important goal, I have also lost 25 lbs and 7% body fat in the journey and I am not done yet. If you have health/weight related struggles and are looking for a coach to help you through, RRPT is the place to be. Thank you RRPT for giving me my LIFE back!
RRPT(e.g. the "FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH") gave me back my health and the body I had 40 years of go!
When I first read about RRPT, I had a weak, post-op shoulder and I was extremely overweight. I was disgusted with the weight gain that I couldn't lose on my own. I met with LaurieAnn, but I thought she would tell me to strengthen my shoulder first and then come back. Instead, LaurieAnn welcomed me and explained that RRPT works with people with all kinds of injuries and that RRPT trainers have the education and experience to work around injuries. She went on to explain that I would be better to rehab with professional trainers while working on my weight loss.
I was amazed that my trainer, Todd, worked around my fragile shoulder, never once inflaming the affected muscle groups, yet giving me a great workout! After several weeks, we carefully began to train those particular shoulder muscles. I cannot tell you how fantastic it feels to have a healthy shoulder now able to lift weights. It feels wonderful and there is no way I could have achieved this on my own.
And regarding the extra weight that I came in with that was distressing me . . . it's gone!! I'm super healthy; my doctor is ecstatic. My energy and endurance are unstoppable. I have toned muscles. I feel like I'm 26 years old again. I am actually 60 years old and lost 35.5 lbs. in 24 weeks eating whole, healthy foods. LaurieAnn created a custom meal plan and a training and cardio schedule for me that jump-started my metabolism and shredded my fat. The cardio program is awesome! The classes are focused, fun, effective, and small, which gave me the individual attention I needed as a beginner. Above all, the trainers are like no other - they are highly experienced, knowledgeable, and they really care about all their clients. This is a special place!
Thank you RRPT for getting me in perfect condition . . . for my next 60 years!
After vacation, I changed my goal to muscle/mass gain. Laurie Ann modified my nutrition plan and Todd and Doug personalized my workouts with that in mind. I continued for another 2.5 months. By the end of my membership, the crew at Rapid Results had added significant muscle to my arms, shoulders, and back and I was definitely in the best shape of my life!Laurie Ann, Todd, and Doug sincerely care about your personal gain and will motivate and push you to do your best. If you are looking to add muscle and definition and wanting to see dramatic changes to your body in short order, then Rapid Results Personal Training is definitely the place for you!
My journey at Rapid Results Personal Training started 4 weeks ago. In that short amount of time, I see a big difference in my stamina and endurance. I went from zero exercise, low energy, and unhealthy eating habits to regularly exercising 4 times a week. I hated the cardio when I first started and could only do 10 minutes. Now, I actually am starting to look forward to my cardio the most. I am doing a full 30 minutes, which is something I NEVER thought I could or would do. Laurie Ann and trainer Doug are very patient with me, even when I complain. The environment at the gym is relaxed & family friendly. My 15 year old daughter and husband are also going and we are learning to eat better and exercise together. This is a lifestyle change for us that hopefully will last forever. I still have a long way to go. However, I feel better and better everyday. For that I am thankful to Laurie Ann and trainer Doug. They are helping me improve my health, and the health of my family.
RRPT changed that. WIth the help of Laurie Ann and Doug I have changed. I have lost almost 20 pounds and am down 3 pant sizes in a little over 3 months. I am stronger have more energy than I've had in a long time. I now love going to the gym. The nutrition plan is essential to getting where you want to be fast and it's not something you find at most gyms. It's really pretty simple. If you do what she tells you to do you will lose weight and get stronger. I can't say enough good things about this place. Join the family, you won't regret it.

As far as a previous comment mentioned: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! I would rather pay for the experience of a professional trainier than pay various doctors due to sickness or injury from trying to save a buck.
I recommend Rapid Results Personal Training over ANY and ALL other trainers in Cobb County!
I highly recommend RRPT and Laurie Ann for anyone old and young who truly want to achieve their full health and fitness potential!
