3 Years, 38 lbs and 6 Sizes Later
by Ebony Cooper

In 2012, I gave birth to my daughter. I was 30 years old and completely unhappy with my health. My meals consisted of fried, processed and fast foods on a regular basis and physical activity wasn’t a factor at all. I realized that something had to change and the only one who had the ability to change me was me.
 
I was concerned about my physical body and ironically it was my pastor that introduced me to a life of physical fitness and healthy living. We joined a gym together and started working out for an hour daily. The first thirty minutes was cardio exercises such as the elliptical and walking on the treadmill; the last thirty minutes consisted of ab (ex. crunches, planks) work and/or weightlifting (ex. chest press, tricep curls). Within the first year of working out together, she helped me manage my diet, build endurance and she even taught me how to run. The work was paying off. I could see the results. I fell completely in love with physical fitness; the gym was my secret addiction.
 
In 2014 I was introduced to Synergy Coach; in January of 2015 (after months of procrastinating) I started training with Coach Larry. I attended strength training classes two days a week; a typical class began with foam rolling and stretching, weight lifting, cardio and ends with foam rolling.  The foam rolling and stretching help to prepare the muscles for the workout.
 
I increased my sessions to 3-4 days a week. After sharing my wellness goals and a month of training, I was introduced to ID Life Nutrition. Upon completing my ID Life health assessment, I became aware of the areas where my health and nutrition were lacking. My issues were that I lacked energy, proper nutrition and sleep. They all played a major part in my unhealthy living. I started taking nutrition supplements daily and pre and post workout drinks were my best friends; I began to sleep effectively and my energy increased. With my consistent exercise routine, combined with my new nutritional focus; The results were evident - the transformation happened rapidly.
 
The past six months has been one of the greatest investments in my life and health; Synergy has given me the ability to understand health, wellness, nutrition and how to become physically fit. With the support of Synergy Coach, combined with ID Nutrition; I am down 20lbs and (counting) I feel phenomenal. My lifestyle will never be the same!!
