Today we are going to share an empowering story and honor one of our favorite clients – Seth . He has been a member of Core Principles since late 2016 and before we tell his story let us just start off by saying that Seth is one of the most positive, upbeat and fun-loving clients that ever came through the CP door. I can’t recall a day when Seth comes in to the studio without a big, beaming smile on his face. His positive attitude and enthusiasm are contagious and that’s why we adore him! Seth is a very successful businessman, a great husband, a proud Superdad and a huge Mets fan. Prior to joining CP Seth was not very active and struggled with being consistent about exercise and his diet. His schedule was super-busy and working out was just not in the top of his priorities. The lack of exercise and inactive lifestyle finally caught up to him, and Seth’s family and his doctor recommended he get his health in check. Seth finally decided to stop making excuses, take action, start moving and get in shape!
After joining Core Principles, Seth soon noticed positive differences in what he felt like and what he looked like! After just 2.5 months he became stronger, had more energy and improved his endurance. What Seth really liked about Core Principles is that he felt that it wasn’t just a regular fitness studio, but a community of people that supported his mission of getting healthy. Following the initial period at CP, Seth was determined to keep going. He quickly progressed and started crushing his exercise programs! This led to even bigger and better results… Seth had lost over 20 lbs in a course of a year, and felt like a brand new man. He observed a difference in how his body moved, had more stamina and got rid of some the aches and pains that bothered him for a while. Seth started truly enjoying fitness and achieving his goals! His health has improved immensely and he even ran a 5K recently, which made all of us very proud of his accomplishments! In addition to having a great family and a fulfilling career, Seth finally made himself a priority and it was paying off!

Now, let’s talk about some of the key components that got Seth to where he needed to be… His achievements didn’t happen overnight and Seth learned that improving his health is a process that takes a lot of patience and practice. The hard work, consistency and a great, positive mental attitude, is what kept Seth coming to the gym on a weekly basis. His determination to get healthy and work on himself, the support of his family and coaches at CP made him a success story that he is today. Like many of us, Seth’s busy schedule that once got in the way of his health was no longer an issue due to a shift in his priorities and a strong commitment to fitness. Even on a busy day Seth decided to make healthy choices, and carved out a little bit of time every week to be present, workout and take care of his health. Even if he was having an off day, or felt tired, he would show up and perform a lighter workout based on his capabilities and energy levels. With the help of his coaches, Seth realized he didn’t need to be perfect, or dedicate his whole life to fitness, but make little room for it everyday and that was more than enough!Seth learned that though he couldn’t control many things in his life, such as work deadlines, unexpected family obligations or whether the Mets make it to the playoffs, he is in charge of his decisions. Soon, a series of small steps towards progress, and day-to-day healthy choices led up to great results and Seth finally taking charge oh his health. We feel that Seth’s story is very empowering and wanted to share it with our readers, to remind them that even though life gets in the way sometimes, it’s not impossible to make room for self-improvement! Seth continues to work on his health & fitness. Though he has occasional setbacks, his attitude to keep going and moving forward is what matters most and has contributed to his successes. We continue to enjoy seeing Seth work towards his goals and seeing his smile every time he walks through the door! Way to go Seth! We couldn’t be more proud 🙂
