Here’s an example testimonial:

I’d like to express my sincerest appreciation and thanks to all of the staff and trainers at Excel Body Fitness (XBF), and a special thanks to Carolee Auslander. I was introduced to XBF back in April 2010 by Steve Poythress who was a member that significantly benefited from the 12-week program and underwent a life changing transformation by losing over 26 pounds and a body fat loss of 10 percent. I thought to myself, if he could do it — then so could I! I began with the 4-week slim down session and immediately realized that the staff was truly committed to fitness, nutrition and going beyond to make sure their members succeeded with meeting their desired goals.

[comparebar name=’Aubrey’]Although I was seeing results, I wasn’t truly committed to the program as I was either away on business travel or was just plain lazy and decided to stay home, lay around and eat. At this point I was always tired, didn’t want to play any physical games with my kids — basically I was ready for a transformation. I joined the 12-week session that began on January 3, 2011. This time I was mentally focused and was committed to succeeding. I began the program weighing 240 pounds. In 12-weeks, I lost 34 pounds and is down from a waist size of 40 to a comfortable 34. I have an elevator at my work. While it is very convenient, I have chosen to take the staircase. I am also preparing myself for an upcoming 5k run! I could not have done this without Carolee’s challenging and rigorous exercise routines, motivating me to go beyond my potential, and most of all her advice and follow-ups on my nutritional efforts. I also have to give a special thanks to Steve, who turned me on to XBF. He kept me focused on my eating habits, made sure I attended every class, and most of all encouraging me to compete with him at every task! I will never forget being outside in the morning doing push ups in my driveway while Steve walked out to take his kids to daycare. That’s what I call true dedication! I am a true proponent of XBF and all that it has shown me. Today I am feeling 10 years younger and my wife is thrilled. I am able to play outside with the kids without becoming exhausted. And I get frequent compliments from co-workers and friends about my physical transformation. To that end, I challenge you to give XBF a try! I can attest, it will change your life forever! I just started the 4-week slim down today and is looking forward to the upcoming Fall 12-Week session.
