Cal Fit Success Story: Rocklin Member, Derek F.


Before I began working with Certified Personal Trainer, Debbie Barry, I felt lethargic, tired and uncomfortable in my own skin. I was 48 years old and knew that 50 was fast approaching. Achieving my fitness goals was only going to get more difficult, and I knew I couldn't do it on my own. As an Executive Coach who walks alongside professionals to accomplish their goals, I knew I needed a Fitness Coach to walk with me on my fitness journey.

Since January of 2012, I’ve lost a total of 65 pounds. I’ve gone from a 41 inch waist, to a 33, and from an XL t-shirt to a large (sometimes even medium). I can now run 5 miles at a 9:45 pace. I can hike and bike without feeling fatigued. I feel empowered now! I’m physically fit with more energy. I sleep better. It has also helped my confidence; if I can do this, what else am I capable of?!
