What brought you to Health and Wholeness?
Rob: Originally, I was seeking an edge to my workout routine since I tend to reach a plateau with my body rather quickly. As a result, I consulted with Christian Elliott who was my Personal Trainer between 2007 and 2010. After a conversation with Christian during a Health and Wholeness Open House, he suggested a consultation with Sumi Singh for an aggressive, effective, and efficient nutrition and workout regimen. This is precisely the edge I sought. Based on the lack of results I noticed on my own, I realized that my challenge stemmed from my nourishment consumption. I soon learned that Sumi was the solution to my challenge.
How many days of the week do you train and for how long?
Rob: On my own, I was working out 4 to 5 times regularly for 30 to 45 minutes prior to my program with Sumi. Of note, this was a gradual progression. Originally, I started working out twice a week due a busy work schedule. As I began to feel more lethargic and winded from simple everyday activities, I increased my workout frequency to 3 times per week...then 4...then 5. At one point, I reached 7 times in one week and STILL no results.
Under the auspices of Sumi, she taught me how to be mindful of my caloric consumption coupled with a dynamic workout routine. The results are irrefutable. I began to notice significant progress within two weeks. By the time I reached the first milestone date, I overshot my original goal. This occurred with the second milestone date as well.
What are your biggest motivators?
Rob: Maintaining a fit lifestyle has always been a goal of mine, however, this time I wanted more definitive, physical results.
What is the most significant change you have made/noticed since coming to Health and Wholeness?
Rob: By far, the most significant change has been my nourishment (food and supplement) consumption and portion size. I eat much healthier now than I did before I was under the direction of Sumi. Of note, I ate healthily before, but my regimen lacked some basic elements. Further, my workout routines had become static.
What have you learned about yourself since starting your journey with us?
Rob: The best lesson I have learned throughout this journey is will power. I am reassured that one of my strengths is pure will power.
What advice would you give someone starting on his/her own health journey?
Rob: I have 3 pieces of advice that I have found priceless:
1) Be consistent...start small and continue with small progressions
2) Be persistent...do not allow obstacles to discourage you
3) The secret to success is 1 and 2.
My journey with Sumi Singh has been quite enlightening. Not only have I surpassed my fitness goals, but I have also acquired some unexpected benefits as well. I feel more alert in mind, agile in body, and confident in spirit. Sumi has unlocked a whole new person within me, for which I am extremely grateful. Thank you Sumi!
