Bob Della Salla is a lifelong athlete and avid golfer who came to Body Elite to help his golf game, feel better and to get back in shape. He’s made a lot of progress in just four month.
I’ve known Steve and Jason for years. Last fall, I ran into Jason at the Emmaus/Central game and we got to talking about Body Elite. I had been thinking a lot lately about doing something serious about getting back in shape and from what I knew about Body Elite, it seemed like it would be a good fit for me. Soon after that, I got a phone call from Alyssa to schedule my consultation with Steve. I’m really glad I got that call.
Growing up, I was always an athlete. I played football and baseball throughout high school and in college and I was always in great shape. But for the last ten years, the lack of exercise just made me feel ‘not good’. I had gained a little weight, lost a little strength and just wasn’t myself. I was having sleep problems. My body was just telling me that something wasn’t right. So I came to Body Elite, and I couldn’t be happier that I did.
The thing that attracted me to the place was that when I met with Steve, I felt that he had a really good understanding of my expectations and of my goals. When I started working out there, I loved it right away because of all of the varied routines and styles that come with working with a whole team of trainers. One of the things that took me by surprise was the amount of new things I learned about exercise. I figured that at 47, and being a lifelong athlete, I thought I pretty much knew all there was to know about exercising. But I’ve been learning a lot of new things and I appreciate the depth of knowledge that the BE trainers have.
The results have been even better than I expected.
I’m an avid golfer and one of my goals was to gain strength and flexibility to help my golf game. I went into the winter with an 11 handicap. Since April, when I started handing in scores for this year, I’m down to a 9 and expect to keep dropping. That’s a huge improvement. I’m hitting the ball farther than ever, and I am certain that is a result of my increased speed and flexibility. I’m also far less fatigued at the end of a round, so I am finishing stronger than I did before. Overall my game has improved a lot.
Every year, I play in the Brookside club championship. This year, I expect to compete in it.
Aside from that, I’ve lost about a pound a month since starting here, and about 1 ½ inches from my waist. I feel a lot better and am sleeping better now, too. In all, I am really happy with the decision I made to join Body Elite and I recommend them highly.
