“We always thought we were in fairly good shape for our age (both 63). We had been fitness walking for years or using a gym for our daily workouts,” said Christine Garrett. “Our eating habits, however, had deteriorated over time, and we found we snacked a lot at night and NOT on healthy foods.”

“We finally acknowledged that we were overweight and no longer as toned and fit as we wanted to be,” she explained. “It had gotten to the point that photos of us were not exactly ‘complimentary’ – shadows would simply not cover our pudginess!”

About this time, Christine, along with her husband, Bob, started noticing several of their friends were looking fitter, healthier and happier and they asked questions to try and discover their secret. It turned out that each had been transformed at RobZFitness, so the Garretts summoned up their courage and “marched our not-so-svelte bodies to his facility for a fitness evaluation, which (unfortunately) validated our concerns,” Christine said.

After Rob explained his proven program of nutrition, cardio and weight training, the Garretts signed up and began their training that same week. The Garretts personal trainer, Taylor Greene, constantly assessed their progress and pushed the couple to improve.

“Bottom line – we are so excited with our progress,” Bob said. “After three months of intense training, there has been a huge change in the way we look and feel.”

Bob’s body fat dropped from 25.8 percent to 13.5 percent after 12 weeks and he lost 20-plus lbs. Chris lost just shy of 20 lbs., and her body fat percentage went from 32.4 percent to 19.4 percent.

“We no longer mind having our picture taken,” Christine said. “We eat healthier foods, we have more energy and we are committed to continuing on this path so that we remain toned and fit.” RobZFitness is located in the Steinmart-anchored Lithia Crossings plaza at 3438 Lithia Pinecrest Rd. in Valrico.

“We promise…try it and you’ll be so glad you did!!” said the Garretts.
