One of our greatest success stories deals with Kerry L. At 47 years of age, Kerry is the classic "workaholic"! He came to the studio in March at 242 pounds seeking to lose weight and improve his health, but I could not start with him until April because his blood pressure was too high and we needed medical clearance first. At our last assessment in August, Kerry weighed in at 195 pounds. In four and half months, Kerry lost a total of 47 pounds and his skinfolds dropped by 46%! His waist girth alone decreased by 23.7 cm (that's 9.5 inches!) In fact, he can now fit in size 36 pants. The last time he did that was Grade 5!
His blood pressure returned to normal, and get this, all his success was achieved without performing any aerobic work whatsoever! He is asked constantly: "How much cardio do you do a week?" And his answer is always: "None!" He appears healthy, muscular (I hate to use the word "toned") and strong not drawn, weak and loose like so many who simply diet (by dropping too many calories) and perform excessive aerobic work.
Kerry and his family left for a 3 week vacation to Europe. Before departing, he mentioned to me that it will be the first time that he can remember where he will not have to conceal his body with a towel on the beach or at poolside. Now that's what I call success! -JP

"I am 53 years old working in the high-stress, deadline-driven media business. I have battled weight throughout my life dealing with a 30 pound fluctuation. I have tried every new weight loss program on the market and found that most were very successful for a time, and as soon as I became bored, my weight slowly crept back.
I first saw John Paul on CityTV’s “Perfect Fit” while I was aimlessly churning away on the elliptical machine my trainer stuck me on at the health club I had just joined. I was very impressed with his vast knowledge of nutrition and strength training.
JP’s custom designed workout program and diet has helped me to lose pounds and inches. I no longer ache in the mornings or feel pain when I do simple chores.
My blood pressure and cholesterol levels have plummeted and I will not have to take the drugs my doctor recommended. JP’s holistic approach has helped me to handle my stress and I am finally able to get a restful night’s sleep.
I highly recommend John Paul Catanzaro to anyone who is looking to improve their overall health…no matter what age they are!"
"I have been a client of JP's for over 4 years now. He is the consummate professional. I continue to be impressed with his wealth of knowledge relating to fitness and overall health.
JP takes his work very seriously and works very hard. He surrounds himself with experts in nutrition, naturopathic medicine and other professionals. At the same time he is constantly researching new techniques. His research is not limited to exercise but he also spends a vast amount of time studying all the latest developments in Nutrition and Healthy Lifestyle.
It is my distinct pleasure to recommend JP a first rate personal trainer. His ongoing commitment to his clients and his craft goes above and beyond the call of duty."
