Last May I was contacted by a friend to ask if I wanted to be on a New TV show Sheep Shape. This show is no ordinary show. It is a show about overcoming adversity. It just so happens I have had to do a little of that. On March 1st, 2007 I was in a severe helicopter crash in Iraq. I suffered severe life changing injuries. I flat lined twice, my left leg was amputated above the knee, I had 9 fractured vertebra, a crushed pelvis, my left hand was crushed and one of my fingers partially amputated, along with a few more injuries.
As a result of all this the outlook for me was not bright... at least to everyone but me. I was still alive.
After extensive rehabilitation, a ton of hard work and over 30 surgeries later I began to walk. Which brings me to the 28 Day Challenge. I saw it in a magazine and thought I would try it in preparation for the upcoming sheep hunt I was about to do. I knew I needed to get myself into a lot better shape than I was in.
At the start I weighed 240 pounds. Along with the 28 Day Challenge I had help designing a training routine to get me back into shape. In 4 months and two 28 day challenges I lost almost 50 pounds of fat and put on around 20 lbs of lean muscle.*
The 28 day challenge was easy to stick to because it tastes great and the meal replacement shakes are filling. I have had every product WA offers and still continue to use it today. I am an air traffic controller which is a high stress job. I use Energy & Focus and Hydrate & Recover every day and I really feel that it helps me.
I would recommend these products to anyone... Great products and great people. I was really impressed when I received a call from Mark, the founder of Wilderness Athlete asking me if I was satisfied and how everything was going and thanking me for using the product. It's not too often that you get a call from the founder of a company thanking you, needless to say I was impressed.
Thank you Mark and Wilderness Athlete for your passion in changing lives, which is exactly what your products do.
