Dave Shankle - Success Story

The Workout Center and Brian Raneri have been invaluable to my fitness goals. I came to Brian with a goal in my head that most would deem unachievable, and with the utmost professionalism, Brian began to put together the plan that would become my new way of life. I wanted to join the U.S. Air Force and had to meet certain weight requirements. When I first met Brian in October of 2009, I was 298 pounds and horribly out of shape. I had to be at 220 pounds for anyone from the Air Force to even be allowed to talk to me about joining. Brian put together a plan for me, and we set up training sessions tailored to my weight loss and strength goals. Brian is a trainer that carries with him the knowledge about the human body and what works and what does not. He is also willing to spend the extra time to make sure you feel you are getting what you need out of his gym and his workout plans. He provides a very comprehensive approach to the plans and will demonstrate all workouts and lifts so that you can maximize your potential and get the most out of what he has provided you with. After a short time with Brian, I began to see results and gains like I would have never imagined. As the program he wrote for me progressed, we moved on to workouts that I would have never been able to see myself doing just a short time before. With the help of Brian, I am now happy to say that I am in peak physical form and I swore into the Air Force on April 30th, 2010 at a weight of 216 pounds. Even after he helped me achieve the impossible, Brian has been there for me with any questions I have had and advise on what was necessary for me to achieve my goals. Brian has opened a new world for me and helped give me the confidence I needed to move forward with my plans. I am now proud to call him my friend as well as my trainer. Ever dollar and every minute spent with Brian was more than worth it and no price can be placed on the improvements in my health and general outlook on life that he is directly responsible for. Brian is a dedicated trainer and will go above and beyond to help people be the best that they can be, no matter the amount of time or effort it takes. I am deeply grateful to him for the amount of work he put in with me. He has helped me in more ways than he can possibly ever know, and for this I say, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
