Syatt Fitness: The Week In Review (5/10/2015)

by Jordan Syatt May 10, 2015

G’morning and happy mothers day!

This past week was a crazy one, to say the least, culminating with my 24th birthday bonanza on Friday night. Then Garrett and I continued the celebration on Saturday evening at Mistral in downtown Boston for what turned out to be arguably the best meal we’ve ever had.

Now I’m ready for a fun and relaxing mothers day which will be spent eating way too many lobster rolls with Garrett and my mom, Andrea.

I hope you have a fantastic mothers day and enjoy this brand new installment of The Week in Review!

Mind Blowing Client Transformation: Erin

Erin and I have been working together for the better part of 6-months and, as you can see, her transformation is nothing short mind blowing.

ErinA performance coach at a fantastic New England based facility, Erin came to me looking to lean out while emphasizing strength and performance.

Over the past 6-months Erin has dropped roughly 12lbs of fat, added a ton of muscle, and gained inordinate amounts of strength.

Congratulations, Erin! You’ve worked INCREDIBLY hard over the past 6-months and made extraordinary progress. I’m so excited to continue working with you and to see how much more you accomplish in the months to come.
