You can tell by the smile that Trainer Bob, from Fitness Evolution, enjoys his job. He is obviously having a great time showing my work-out partner, John Uran, how it's done. John, on the other hand, doesn't look nearly as happy.

If you're part of the St. Cloud Weight Loss Challenge, how's it going for you? Have you been working with a trainer? It's honestly the only way I can do it. I know myself too well to  trust that I will do it on my own. But I guess that's why trainers do what they do! And Bob does it well.

He's probably one of the nicest guys around. Minnesota nice. But don't let that fool you. Bob played hockey for UWS Superior. He knows how to toss a hockey puck around. And he's not afraid to toss us around the gym. But I wouldn't have it any other way!

Truthfully? I coasted through the first half of the challenge. But each time I worked with Bob at Fitness Evolution, it made me want to try harder. So this week I made the commitment to give it my all. There's room in our twice-a-week work-out sessions. Join us!
