Nerijus and I met in an elevator at a networking party. He graciously introduced himself and I ran away because he looked too fit to talk to. I’m a writer. He’s a trainer. I’m a before picture. He’s an after.
Here’s where it gets interesting…Nerijus has designed a 6-week training program to help those committed to the cause, finally realize their dream body. I haven’t exercised all winter (it was a really long, dark, cold winter this year) and I have an okay build but I wouldn’t mind firming up and losing about ten pounds.
I looked through his website and saw fit person after fit person. Not sure I belonged among the ranks, I sent him an email with one big question: I’m a normal person who runs to catch trains and away from scary people on my way home late at night. I can lift the weight of a keg, with the right motivation. Could I do your program?
We decided to find out. And then to tell you, so you can decide for yourself if this is a good way for you to get into shape.
I’m writing a daily blog for the next 6-weeks, so you will know what it feels like every step of the way. You’re welcome to live vicariously through the blogs, but actually going down to Central Park and trying out the classes burns a lot more calories. And it’s a lot more fun!
