After having spent most of my adult life being seriously overweight, diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and flirting with other health conditions, I decided two years ago that it was time to take control of my health and my weight. I joined LA Fitness and began a routine of working out on the machines.
One day, my friends and I saw Pierre’s Cardio Kickboxing class and thought we’d try it, even though we weren’t in shape and thought it could possibly kill us! The class was fun and a very tough workout. We attended weekly and before long realized we were keeping up! Pierre makes the class fun with his always-different routines and humor. He genuinely cares about his students and clearly loves what he does. He always keeps an eye on us to make sure we are doing the moves correctly and safely. I let Pierre know of a recent knee injury I suffered, and he has gone out of his way to make sure I don’t do certain moves that would aggravate it and that I’m feeling ok.
I now take Pierre’s class twice a week and follow him around to boot camps and workshops he teaches at other locations. His methods and style work very well for me – so well that in the two years I’ve been taking his classes I have lost all of my excess weight and gotten into pretty good shape. I’m fairly certain that wouldn’t have happened without Pierre’s support. He is the best trainer around!
