Three Trophies!!!



How did you meet Tracy Beckham and why did you feel you needed a Personal Trainer?
I ran into Julie Pryde, a member of a gym that I previously belonged to. Our timing to connect was perfect, since I was looking to enter my first figure competition and “step up” my game in working out. I saw the significant difference in her definition and symmetry and heard that she had competed. I shared with Julie that it was difficult to find someone that I could just talk with about competing, that didn’t want money up front. Julie said that Tracy was very personable, detailed, really knew about nutrition & dieting (which really helped her with competing), and would give a free consultation. If that wasn’t enough, then she added….and she is also now, one of my really good friends. That sealed the deal for me. I gave her a call and I was REALLY glad that I did. Even after 15-20 years of working out on my own in many different gyms, trying many different diets, it has been an incredible journey working with a trainer who has current fruit on the tree.

What goals did you have and how did Tracy Beckham help you achieve those goals?

My original goal was to refine my workouts enough so that I could go on stage and compete in a figure competition for the first time at 45 years of age. I felt that was a personal goal big enough for me. Then when I met with Tracy and we talked a few times, she asked a few more questions and one of them was “Would you like to become ‘pro’, maybe compete nationally or internationally and travel?” I believe that a great leader and coach is a true visionary, and can help you see beyond what you’re capable of seeing for yourself. After a few seconds, I said, “Well, why not?” Tracy helped me to see well beyond my own thinking and limitations. Because we all know, that my current thinking got me the results that I had, and I was now looking for different results.

Tracy’s meticulous attention to detail, portion control, the way my body responded and looked day to day and week to week is amazing!

How did the diet or training help you in your life?
Wow. Where do I begin? When I first saw the food plan outlined for me, I had momentary thoughts of what I would be missing. ut I also knew that I had committed to a goal, and even without knowing Tracy yet, I knew she had the results, and that Julie, her client and friend, also had the results similar to what I was looking for. I knew that I had to have faith in the process and that the sacrifice would pay off.

Tracy helped me with an elbow injury that I’ve had for at least 6 months or more. With her specific instructions, and following them, that specific injury no longer exists. I’ve also always had issues when I worked out previously, with lower back tightness/soreness and a new injury in my hip flexor aea. Tracy’s experience with many various routines has helped me not only work around them and produce amazing results, but also be injury free!
In just a three to four weeks, I noticed significant decrease in bloating, which has always been there, and I felt would be normal for me forever. I also noticed that my energy levels had increased, and I was starting to lose weight.

I learned so much about how my body responded to portion control, the balance of healthy fats and “good” carbohydrates. Tracy taught me how to pay attention to my energy levels and my body. I also learned how important it was to stay in constant communication with Tracy to tweak things just right to be “competition ready”. This experience also gave me the confidence to know that if I could do this by committing to a goal and working with someone and being a good student, I could do just about anything!

On October 1, 2011, at the San Francisco Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini show, I went from 124 pounds to 103.5, we placed 1st in my class, 3rd in the 35+, and 3rd in the 45+. Three trophies!! I’m the leanest, most defined and feel the best I’ve ever felt, both inside and out! But we’re already looking at a new game plan, and new goals for the November 5th show in Sacramento and next year. If we did this in only 6 months, I can’t wait to see what we can do next!

And anything else you would like to share in the testimonial?
I specifically remember about an early conversation with Tracy when she said to me, “You’ll need to trust me if I’m going to be your coach. We’re a team. And if you trust me and follow the directions, the results will motivate you.” I truly believe that when you commit to your dream and mentor with someone that has fruit on the tree, you have to believe in your heart and with faith, that the desired result is shared and that you truly are a team. I had never had a personal trainer, a coach or a mentor in my work outs. Tracy has the experience, the knowledge, is meticulous with detail to help results for anyone! She is encouraging, motivating and is a great friend. She truly cares that you reach your potential and achieve your own personal definition of success.

I believe that there is a higher purpose for me. There are no accidents, and meeting and working with Tracy is no exception. I hope to help encourage other women to become the best they can be, and to achieve their dreams and goals too. Working with Tracy has been an amazing experience, I know it’s only the beginning! I have already recommended her to anyone that has complimented me on my progress. I couldn’t have accomplished these results without her!!
