TruSelf Sporting Club

Thank you Matt Holden for giving us the ability to showcase your personal transformation! As we all know, it starts with the personal decision within your truSelf to make a life choice to get back into shape and it doesn’t hurt having the guidance of a personal trainer Nikita!

My name is Matt Holden and I started coming to TruSelf Sporting Club San Diego gym in early July after about a 5 year break from any physical exercise. I came and went mostly running and using random machines. In early August I jumped into a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) class and was completely lost but Nikita Madison was patient and encouraging. The next day I scheduled my free personal training session and met with Nikita. We started working together on August 8th, the day of the pictures on the left. With her guidance and motivation I was able to begin a program of physical training and nutritional discipline. The pictures above show the beginning of what I plan on being a complete physical transformation.

When I first came in I was a size 36-38 waist depending on the brand, completely sedentary, weighed 210lbs and had 21% body fat. After 90 days of training hard with Nikita once a week, eating clean, and taking two HIIT classes a week I’m down to a size 32, active in all aspects of my life, weigh 188lbs, and my body fat is somewhere in the 17% range.

I’ve never felt as good as I do today in my life. Without the professionalism and experience of my personal trainer Nikita and the entire gym staff, I wouldn’t be reaching these goals and setting new ones. I get to learn something new everyday and I get to see other lives changing around me. The positive environment is contagious!
The best thing is that I have a professional, understanding, and passionate trainer who continually tailors a program to my needs and abilities that I can reach out to with any questions.
