CHRIS STOKES - LOST 10% BODY FAT
I can’t say enough about how amazing Jeff is! His training program and nutrition plans are perfect for achieving the goals you set. He’s not only a great trainer, He truly cares about his clients and pushes them to their full potential. I am a lot stronger, more cut and have way better endurance now thanks to Jeff!
BRIAN GRIDER - LOST OVER 100LBS
Growing up I was always the heaviest kid. My breaking point was my 21st birthday, I weighed 303, and I had to hold my breath to tie my shoes. No one should ever have to endure such an experience, especially be being so young. Having grown up through depression and a rough family life at home, I found solace in food. I am fortunate for Jeff. He was always there to support me through the rough years and hoped someday that I would be willing to take the first step toward a healthier life. When I did, he was right there with me, unwavering support, texting me daily, holding me accountable for my diet, going to the gym with me and sprinting along side me on the stationary bike or running laps with me in the pool. Eventually losing over 100lbs as I write this testimonial. I have never been more active, more fulfilled in how I see myself as a person and owe much of that to Jeff and his abilities as a personal trainer and support as my best friend. Through his knowledge and patience and commitment to excellence toward myself and countless others he has impacted over the years, I can say with full confidence he has been the driving force behind who I am today.
CARA SAMSON - LOST OVER 45LBS
After my second child, I really let myself go and my weight got up to 199lbs. Everyday activities would tire me quickly and I suffered from on and off feet pain. I was over being overweight/ obese and I knew I needed to make changes in my life. That is when I decided to join Grizzly Baird Fitness in October 2015. I discussed with Jeff my goals and let him know my weaknesses. From there a workout and nutrition plan was devised. I worked out with him 3 times a week and each week we would review my challenges and my accomplishments. I would have my ups and downs but Jeff really encouraged me to stay positive and keep on the right track. He is very knowledgeable and whenever I have questions about nutrition or fitness, I’m sure to get an answer. Even when I am working out on my own and have questions all I have to do is shoot Jeff a text and I quickly get a response. Jeff is passionate about his work and has a contagious energy which keeps me motivated. March 2016 (5 months later) I have lost 45lbs, increased my energy, and have no more feet pain. Working out is a part of my life now and I have Jeff to thank for that!
BRYAN LERILLE - DOWN 20% BODY FAT
Bryan is both patient and persistent. He understands that long term success takes time, and, as a result, has maintained steady progress over the years. I've been training with Jeff for 4 years. He has taught me to take interest in my physical health. When I began training with Jeff I weighed 265-270lbs, was pushing a 40" waist and had a body fat percentage of about 38%. Today I am at 203lbs, wearing 32" pants very comfortably, and my body fat % as of 5/6/2016 is 18.1%. Jeffs education in kinesiology has play a huge part in my progress. He knows how your body is supposed to work. I've never sustained an injury or had any undue soreness. You will be totally drained when your workout is done but you will have had a great time with him. If you are looking to improve your quality of life, contact Jeff.
NICK AVISE - DOWN 20LBS AND 8%BF
Two months ago I decided to partake in a 12 week challenge. I knew I didn’t have the discipline to write my own meal plan and workout plan, so I knew I needed someone to train me. I am pretty active and know my way around the gym, so I didn’t need someone to train me 1-1 per say, but I did need someone to help me with the workouts and nutrition. Enter Jeff Baird. Jeff not only asked me specifically for workouts and foods that I enjoy, he asked me what I didn’t like to eat, and what I didn’t like to train. Additionally, he asked me very specific questions about my timeframe and questions regarding my fitness history. He did all of this in an attempt to provide the best plan for me and my individual body! Not my body “type” but for my body and for my goals! He did so in such a way to avoid foods I don’t like and workouts I don’t like to do! Thus making the experience much more enjoyable. I write this testimonial today at the eight week mark of my journey. I started at 193 pounds and I am currently at 179 pounds! I have gotten to the point where I am no longer looking at the number on the scale because the results in the mirror speak for themselves! Jeff is a constant reminder that diet and fitness are both needed to achieve your goals. I mean it when I say, if I can do it, anybody I can. I was always against hiring a trainer or coach, but Jeff has erased all doubts from my mind. Once I am done with my cut, I have full intentions on utilizing Jeff for a clean bulk! Did I mention his online coaching is incredibly reasonably priced? Not only do I look good, I feel great! I highly recommend contacting Jeff today!
ME, JEFF BAIRD - DOWN OVER 13% BF
“Here is my personal "mock" contest prep transformation. From 220lbs and 17% body fat, to 190lbs and 6.5% body fat. Never let anyone or any thought slide in between you and your goals. Anything is possible as long as your mind is willing”. I went on to compete in 2015 at 173lbs and 4% body fat. The transformation, both physically and mentally was staggering, and I look forward to pushing each and every one of you towards accomplishing similar goals.
