I love ZG! I lost 70 pounds…which is great, but for me the ZG concept is bigger than that. I think the most important thing about ZG is that you learn a framework for healthy living that you can sustain over your lifetime…so once you lose the weight you know how to maintain that loss and you have the support to do it. You learn the principals that govern how your body chemistry and mechanics intersect with your diet and exercise. Once you have that foundation, you can develop a way of eating and exercising that fits the ZG framework and that you like! I really appreciate Dr. Zacharias, she’s been accessible, more than willing to help and opine on my process, and sincere in her desire to help those with the ZG community reach their health goals as are the trainers. There are so many classes and trainers at ZG. I find it very easy to work with trainers I like and keep my workouts interesting and fun. I’ve made friends there too. Good times! So for me, ZG has been a game changer. I feel like I’ve dodged the bullet of diabetes, heart disease, joint problems and the repercussions of obesity…just in time.
My child has been attending the City Wide Boxing Club. I find that he has improved in his behavior and seems to love the sport. The Coaches really care about the children and their success in life. I am thankful the organization has a free program that does so much to help single Mothers, and parents with teaching their children the importance of valuing themselves, staying out of trouble and respecting others. The Boxing Program really has helped me and my child.
