Dan The Viking Lost 27 Pounds With A Simple Formula

Meet Dan. He’s a real life Viking who came to me to tone him down for the battlefield (Oh, he also works a stressful leadership role in the school system down in Texas too).

Here’s my Q & A with him.

1) Where you were before working with me / getting my program?

Prior to working with Mitch, I’d kind of been losing some weight on my own, up and down, yo-yoed. I tend to follow a program and then put the weight back on almost as quick as I lost it. The biggest thing that was holding me back was simply not knowing what to do. I kept trying to educate myself, looking at the research.

2) What were you skeptical of? (What held you back from taking action sooner?)

I would find lots of vague answers, a lot of conflicting information as far as what worked, what didn’t work.

And I didn’t seem to find a good program that seemed to work with older guys, I’m in my late 40s right now. And then I found Mitch.

I spoke with Mitch several times before I committed to working with him, and Mitch really convinced me through his knowledge, his passion for what he does, and his beliefs in that it works, and that he follows this himself.

3) What was your BIG breakthrough from the coaching?

It’s turned out to be so much more than just a program. It’s been a lifestyle change for me. And that’s where I feel that Mitch is really… is better than most programs I’ve ever tried to work.

I’ve learned how to make choices, I’ve learned knowledge, and with that I can make those life decisions on my own.

I’m no longer following a program, I’m living my life. And because I’m not following a program, I’m not worried about all that weight coming back on as soon as I’m done following a program or I stop buying certain foods or anything like that.

4) What have been your specific results from the coaching?

I’ve worked with Mitch close to four months now, and my most easy to measure results are I’ve lost close to 27 pounds, that’s a little over 12 kilograms for you Canucks up there in Canada.

And in addition, my work pants, I was wearing a size 42 with a little elastic band, and I was afraid I was going to have to a larger size before I started working with Mitch. And now I’m comfortably fitting into a size 38, so I’ve lost four pant sizes on my work pants.

And that’s just the easy to measure stuff, that doesn’t count having more energy and overall confidence and just every morning when I get out of bed, overall I feel better about the day and where I’m going with everything

5) Who would you recommend this program/coaching for?

Honestly, I can’t recommend Mitch enough, especially if every morning you’re looking in the mirror, and you’re tired of what you see, and you’re serious about making a change, you need to contact Mitch.
