I am so happy with my appearance now and the amazing changes that have taken place in my body. With David's guidance and support, I went from being a "skinny fat" to a healthy and lean 16% body fat at the age of 47. I am so thankful to David for showing me the right way to achieve the body I want, and look forward to a healthy and lean body forever!

Now think back to the time that you, by chance, worked out with someone who was much stronger, who had a great bench or great squat. What happened when you worked out with that person? Yes, right. You had a terrific workout! You pushed yourself harder than you could have by yourself. Your weights, your reps, your intensity and your results dramatically increased. All because you were around someone who could inspire you. You adapted to the situation. You became stronger and increased your intensity. You experienced a new level of greatness in your life. You put your best to the test. You grow, not only physically, but in every area of your life when you put the best that you have to the test. You do this whenever you put yourself near the people who can inspire you in the environment that is a fertile soil for positive growth.

However, be prepared, when it comes to finding the best gym to train in or the best environment to workout in. to encounter those ego trips. Don't waste your time on them. Look for those who will inspire you to greater achievements. In fact, you will find that the truly successful people you admire, whether they may be in the gym or at your job, are more than likely very approachable and can be very helpful if you will only ask (and then listen, of course).

The truly inspirational people have been where you are right now. They didn't start at the top. They asked many questions of others who excelled at what they wanted to do. They observed and they keep an open mind about how they could use and apply the sessions they learned.

When you seek out those people who are making those things happen with their lives, you are actually seeking to become one of them. You are beginning to do what it takes for you to eventually become an inspiration to others. When you are around those who can inspire you, you begin to reach down deep inside of you to achieve the things you want. That may be a great body, advancement in your career, becoming an expert at your hobby or building a personal relationship into something spectacular. Being near the right people can and will make it happen for you.

Make a statement in your life! The people you admire have all made statements with their lives. You can do the same. In whatever you do, put your best to the test.

March 25, 2004 Facing my fortieth birthday, with a son less than two years old, a pregnant wife, a stressful job as the director of a busy inner-city emergency department and a schedule that at times defies belief, I performed a brutally honest self-assessment. I came to the conclusion that I was overweight, had no energy or time for meaningful exercise and basically was on a downhill slide into the type of irreparable health problems that I spent each day trying to correct in my patients. Enter David DiPasquale.

I met David in November of 2001. At the time I weighed 245 Pounds and had a body fat percentage of 25%. After approximately one hour I left our meeting armed with a detailed diet and exercise plan and hopes for rejuvenation. As I write this letter, I weigh 195 pounds and have dropped my body fat to approximately 13%. I could never have accomplished this without the support and expertise David provided. He truly was the inspiration behind my transformation.

Realistically, as a physician, I should have known better than to let myself deteriorate physically. Eat less per meal, more frequently and exercise more. These are not difficult concepts to grasp. The reality is, that without the education and guidance that David provided, I would still be at least 245 pounds with just as high a body fat percentage. David has a fund of knowledge and enthusiasm for what he does that is unparalleled. Most important is his ability to translate that into a plan that is extremely to follow and shows immediate and longlasting results. He has changed my way of thinking about my caloric composition and intake.

He has given me a plan that I can adapt to my likes, dislikes and lifestyle. He has given me the tools for a dietary and lifestyle blueprint that I will be able to follow beyond his weight loss plan. I have become a walking advertisement for David and his program. I am none to happy to share my experience with others, including here, in hopes that those that may self assess will consider contacting David and allow him to work his magic with them.

Sincerely,
