For those of you who do not know me, I’m Allie Ploense and have been working at the Workout Company for almost 5 years now. This semester I’m am doing some nutrition internship hours at the gym. Many of you probably do not know my weight loss story so I would love to share it with you all.
About 6 years ago I was playing at a softball tournament in the Wisconsin Dells, and suddenly the opposing team started making fun of my weight. I was devastated and spent several months feeling sorry for myself, then one day my dad suggested I join him at the Workout Company. Slowly but surely I began coming daily with my dad and using the machines and running on the treadmill. Once I become more consistent with working out I started tracking what I was eating on MyFitnessPal, and began having my mom cook healthier meals. Little by little the weight started coming off, I really did not even notice the change until one day my best friend’s mom pulled me aside and told me how good I was looking and to keep up the great work. After she noticed the change it just sparked something in me to keep going. After several months of hard work I ended up losing 90 pounds on my own, and have been fortunate enough to keep it off for the last 6 years. This major life change lead me to make the decision to major in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics at ISU.
I would love to help you all reach any weight loss goals you have, which is why I am opening up my services to all of you here at the gym. During the week I have set hours when I will be able to meet with you and they are as follows:
Friday: by appointment
If any of those hours don’t work for you please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment. I cannot wait to hear from you all.!
