Hostyle and Peter Hamilton the comeback kid!!
As many of you may or may not know, before the amazing Eric Whisslle came on the scene and lost 150+ lbs.
We had another inspirational transformation with Peter Hamilton.
Pete had lost over 120 lbs with us at Hostyle Conditioning. Infact Peter was Eric’s Inspiration when Eric started with us 18 months ago.
Then Peter had some big kicks in the face from life, he lost his job adn was unemployed for months, knowing he had to do something about his situation Pete decided to go back to school for some computer thingy…
In the meantime Peter fell back into some old dirty habits and soon gained all the weight back, and maybe a bit more.
Pete and I are also friends and I kept on him to get back into the groove. To be honest I was worried that he wouldn’t. I sat down with him and had a very frank conversation with him.
One of the things he was concerned about was coming back to the Hostyle group and facing everyone, after all he was one of our poster boys for success.
He said that he knew we were much bigger and busier and he was embarrassed about how he had let himself go.
I told him that everyone, and I mean everyone falls down in life, but only Heros, get back up and get back at it. I knew Peter was a Hero..he just had to be reminded of it.
I also explained to him that the people at Hostyle loved him and they would be soo happy to see him back!
Well, that was 8 weeks ago…
Today Peter achieved 2 awesome bench marks
He is now down…50 lbs!!!!! since coming back and he benched a personal best 185 lbs today!!!
I am very proud of Peter, not just Â for these achievements although they are amazing!. I am stoked that he faced his fears of coming back.
More great news is that as a result of his comeback and getting fitter and healthier he went out and landed what he calls his “Dream” job with Canadian Bank Note.
Proof that when you build your health and fitness, you build your confidence and awesome things happen!!
