Success Stories

You will get out of it what you put into it! Individual results may vary, but if you consistently work hard and stay focused the results will come. Here are a few of our favorite success stories:

Say hello to Toby Sansom who lost that LAST 8 pounds to feel and look her very best. Those last 5-10 pounds don’t have to stick around. They can be shed and we know how to do it! “I wanted to thank you for the past 8 weeks. You are a true motivator. One of my goals was to get back on track with my physical activity and my food intake. I feel I have been quite successful in these areas. This wasn’t about a diet – but about a lifestyle change! For this I can’t thank you enough. My other goal was to wear my jeans with a belt and my shirt tucked in, and feel good about that. Sitting at the airport with my jeans and belt on and my shirt tucked in. Loving it!”

Let’s put our hands together for Vickie Seeger who completely transformed her composition in just 4 months. Vickie lost 20 pounds, 2.5 inches in her chest, 3 inches in her waist, 2 inches in her hips and 2 inches in each thigh. She also realized a 24mg/dL drop in her cholesterol during this time period! “Stephanie and Justin were easy to work with and provided excellent and informative guidance on how to make the changes that provided positive results.  I am amazed at how easy the meal plan is to follow and the healthy weight loss that started on week 1 and continued each week after. Stephanie is professional and very friendly at the same time and wants everyone to have a safe and excellent workout.  Justin incorporates a wide variety of movements which makes for a tremendous total body workout. Thanks to the direction from Stephanie and Justin, I exceeded my weight loss goals and can’t thank them enough for their guidance, support and continued encouragement!”

“Meet James Sharpe, a long distance meal plan client who has absolutely crushed his goals and transformed his body, WOWSER!!. Here is an excerpt from his testimonial: “I had been struggling with my weight for many years. I got myself into the constant cycle of fad diets. All I did was fluctuate up and down and every time my weight would go back up, it would even increase beyond where I was before I had tried the fad diet. 2 years ago I started working out 6 times a week but knew I needed to support my exercise regime with a structured meal plan. I started talking to Justin Check about what I should be eating and making it achievable within my stressful working week. He developed a meal plan that was easy to understand and achievable with my busy work and social life. It has been 2 years I have lost over 30 pounds and have improved my body composition month by month!”

Say hello to Chelsey Scheiner, a FIT pregnant woman! “I started looking online for prenatal/maternity workout classes around town, but really couldn’t find anything! Then luckily I stumbled across Stephanie’s own pregnancy blog on her website, which is how I came to find out about Check Total Health. Our first personal training session was when I was 17 weeks pregnant, and I was hooked. Stephanie has been amazing to work with. First of all, the mobile personal training they offer is an incredible opportunity. It makes working out so convenient, there really isn’t an excuse to not do it. She was able to work around my sometimes crazy work schedule and we fit in about 2 sessions per week. Also, I had so much faith in her to train me during my pregnancy because she had just gone through the same thing about 5 months earlier. I trusted her to design the workouts to fit my ever-changing pregnancy body and energy level. Plus it was really fun to be able to share my first-time-mom-to-be journey with her, every week was a new and exciting milestone! She seemed as excited about my pregnancy week by week as I was! The workouts were tough but great. I could feel myself getting stronger every week. I kept thinking how crazy it was that I felt like I was getting abs yet growing a big baby belly at the same time! I am very proud of myself for committing to this workout routine during my pregnancy. At a time when I could have easily let myself go, I feel like I did the opposite and I have had a fantastic pregnancy because of it. I have gained 30 pounds and I am really happy with that. I am 39 weeks pregnant and just finished my last session with Stephanie before the baby comes. I am so happy that I found her! She has helped me stay strong and flexible and healthy all the way through this pregnancy. Now all that’s left is to welcome this baby into the world! Thanks again, Steph! Looking forward to our post-baby workouts next!”

Say hello to Tristan Chapman, an avid cyclist and former professional beach volleyball player. Tristan embarked on a 7 week mission to follow a Check Total Health meal plan and take Stephanie Check’s indoor cycling classes a few times each week. In addition, he lifted weights and cycled outside. In 7 weeks Tristan lost 26 pounds. Here’s what he has to say about it: “Thanks for putting together a successful program that helped me achieve my goals. It’s been hard work but you made it fun too! Your food program & recipes did the trick as my wife also lost weight. (She looks great!) We are leaving today for our anniversary cruise and it’s good timing to look and feel so healthy again. We’re both appreciative of your energy and expertise and plan to continue working with you going forward.”

And here’s Eleanor Snedden‘s success: “I joined a weight loss and fitness challenge hosted by Check Total Health (CTH) as I was overweight and my blood sugars were out of control.  I knew this would be a great program to get me back on track with a proper eating and fitness plan. CTH encouraged all of us through the 8 week program and as a result, I’ve lost over 15 pounds and my blood sugars are back in the normal range.   I want to thank CTH for the coaching they provided me as well as the other attendees.   I’m sticking with their program as I feel great and want to lose more weight.  Thanks CTH!”

This is Dot Boudreaux and her pictures are really incredible for just 8 weeks of hard work and healthy eating! “Just wanted to thank you for your guidance during the weight loss challenge.  I had a back injury 2 years ago and exercise was limited.  It’s been a long healing process, got back into yoga and spin.  Then the challenge,  thought I would sign up.  Well I have to say I’ve never felt better!  Cravings are down, the food plan is simple and it worked for me…finally  shedding the weight that has been hanging on to me. Stephanie can’t do enough for you she is available for every question and totally supports you.  Again I thank you I will continue losing until I get to my goal..Thank you!”

While it’s true that Stephanie Check is a Personal Trainer in Southwest Florida and has been working out for many years, she still has to put in the effort to overcome weight gain such as when she gave birth to our daughter, Liv. The first picture is Steph just one week after giving birth and the second picture is Steph 8 weeks later (9 weeks after giving birth). Steph followed a Check Total Health meal plan and worked out 5-6 days a week once given the OK from the doctor. In the 8 week period she lost 5 pounds, 8% body fat and put on a substantial amount of muscle.
