Meet Nan!

Nan has been one of CFP's greatest success stories. In 2013 she couldn't be on her knees without pain. Now she squats, lunges, crawls, pushes, and pulls with the best!

I have been strength training with Bret for 2 years this April. 

My proudest accomplishment is feeling so much stronger and more confident in doing things I hadn't done in a long time like getting down on the floor and up again. Now it is a piece of cake!!

I am looking forward to getting even stronger all the time! One goal I would like to achieve over the next year is being able to walk further without wearing out!

My favorite junk food is chips and my favorite drink is wine now and then!

My most love it exercise are the pull ups and hate it are single leg squats!

I train 2 days a week and outside of the gym I love to play golf and garden!

I attribute my continued success to Bret for his positive encouragement and my positive mindset telling myself I can do this!

My favorite ability I have gained from my workouts is non stop energy!!

Training with Bret is the best thing I have done for myself! After 2 major surgeries - knee replacement and back surgery 2 years ago I was a mess! Because of Bret's encouragement I am where I am today & can now keep up with my kids and feeling great!
