John was born in Long Island, New York and thrived there until just over a year ago when he relocated his family to Scottsdale, Arizona. John’s wife, Lisa, and their two boys are huge supporters of his SICcess. Johnny (six years old) and Joseph (four years old) love the fact Dad is training to live a long and healthy life. His boys have always been actively involved in sports, playing baseball, swimming, and doing karate, and now he’s in better shape than ever to keep up with them.
Before planting roots in Scottsdale, John spent his life on the east coast. He graduated CW Post University with a degree in Marketing and Finance. John has been able to grow and build great relationships from each job he’s had growing up (although delivering newspapers on bike during snowy, New York winter mornings was challenging for him at times!). Of all the jobs he’s held, John likes his current businesses best, as they both allow him the ability to help others reach their goals and objectives, employ great people, and give back to local communities and charities. John currently trains with Coach Jesse, who commends him on being a driven, hardworking individual and a pleasure to coach.
According to John, SICFIT has changed his life; “Jesse and the team have shown me a sustainable way to workout and diet, while having fun and fitting it all into my busy and ever-changing schedule!” John has lost almost 30 pounds since joining SICFIT, and the weight loss isn’t stopping there. He plans to continue living a healthy lifestyle and change his body for the better.
What’s a typical workout like for the former New Yorker? Not burpees! Burpees are John’s least favorite movement (can you blame him?!). He trains one-on-one with Coach Jesse, focusing on gaining strength and losing those last few pounds of fat.
So why is he so dedicated to his SICess? John says the answer to that is his family. “Unfortunately,” he says, “I have lost a family member and a few friends, all about my age. I have often wondered if they would still be here if they had taken their health a little more seriously. I realized I was making some of the same lifestyle choices that they were; I decided it was time to reevaluate my lifestyle and put myself in the best position possible to help my family and be a positive role model to my children. Jesse and SICFIT have definitely helped make this happen!” John works hard to live the life he’s built! The SICFIT community couldn’t be prouder.
