Hi, I'm Deserae and I am 26 years old. I have 2 wonderful little boys named Wyatt, 7 years, and Koltin, 3 years. I am an elementary school teacher in Phoenix and I joined Fitness Works in April 2011, in hopes to lose some weight I accumulated from having kids. My assessment proved worse than I expected; 157lbs, (I am only 5'2") a size 15 in pants, and 38% body fat.
I worked out alone and lost about 10 pounds and could not seem to lose any more. I started working out with a trainer and after discussing my goals we worked out a meal plan and a routine. In a mere 2 months I lost a total of 35 pounds, 10 pant sizes and 20% body fat. AMAZING!! The best part is that I have kept it off. August 2012 marks my one year anniversary and I have maintained my weight loss and gained more muscle. I am now an instructor at Fitness Works in Glendale teaching the CXWORX core class and I am also the VFIT Motivational Coach for the West Valley of Phoenix. I'm excited to help you reach your own fitness goals--I know you can do it!
