Sacramento Weight Loss Success Story: Gary S. | Cal Fit

Critical Health Inspires Change

At 221 pounds, I felt sluggish and always out of breath. I had high blood pressure, my triglycerides were in the high 600s, and my diabetes numbers were high due to the amount of alcohol that I had consumed throughout the past 50 years.


I started my program with California Family Fitness because my doctor advised me that if I didn't start a fitness and nutrition program, I was going to die.

All of the Rancho Cordova gym staff — from the front desk to management — made me feel welcome from the very beginning. I soon began my fitness program with my personal trainer, Stephen Lacy.

Personal Training is the Cure

I was impressed with Stephen’s enthusiastic attitude, and with his encouragement, I was able to stop drinking and begin a healthier lifestyle. In just 6 short months, I went from 221 pounds to 186.

At 63 years old, I feel 20 years younger and am loving life.

My doctor was so impressed with my improvement that he wrote Stephen a letter and said that in his 23 years of practice, I was one of few patients he'd seen make such a dramatic health improvement!
