Angie Nation-Pirtle's Client of The Month Monica Boschert

Every month I am going to select a  new client to feature and blog their work outs at Emerge, cardio, and diet.    This month’s client is Monica Boschert.  I have been working with Monica since August of 2008.  In the time I have spent with her  she has accomplished some amazing goals.  She came to me with a primary goal of weight loss.  She, like many others had spent many years on her own trying to figure out the correct recipe for exercise and diet.  I started her on a simple cardio plan 2-3 times a week for 30 minutes in her target heart rate zone and started out with 2 times a week meeting with me “her new personal trainer”  for a training program specifically designed for her weight loss goal.  I also had her journal her food every day and gradually made suggestions and changes to her eating.  She spent 9 months food journaling and documenting every calorie she ate.  In 9 months of journaling and taking advice from me she now has weened herself off the calorie counting.  Monica understands her optimum calorie intake for the day and how her body will respond to different macro nutrients (carbs, proteins, and fats).

  Now you are wondering what kind of results has she had.  Since August she has consistently lost weight and never gained.  She has lost to date over 50 lbs and over 10% body fat.  In August 2008 Monica weighed 197lbs and as of today she weighed in at 142.6lbs.   Her new goal as of spring 2009 is to maintain weight, maybe loose another 5lbs, but really focus on toning and more body fat loss.  She who started with a very simple program with me almost a year ago doing basic gym exercises such as squats, lunges, ball chest presses, and very basic core exercises has now progressed to a very high intensity core/strength training program.  She still continues her 3-4 days of cardio on her own and 2 days of core and strength training with me. 

I am going to blog her progress and measurement changes for the month of May.  Stay tuned for June’s new client of the month.
