Callista From Ohio
We decided to get fit for our children. We starting exercising in December of 2011 and never looked back. We have run half marathons, a marathon and multiple races. Our habits have slowly evolved over the last year and a half. We now eat healthily and are training to enter our very first Figure and Physique competitions in fall of 2013. We make fitness and health a priority and our main motivators are our three beautiful children. We wanted to be great role models for them. Through all of this, GNC has helped us with all of our supplement needs.
Michael From California
I have a genetic lung disease. Some say I can’t be an athlete. They say I’ll die young. I don’t listen—I define myself. Through hard work and dedication, I have overcome the limitations of my condition. I run, swim, bike, jump rope, lift weights, play basketball—I do anything that challenges me. As a result, my lung capacity is 20% better than a healthy person’s lung capacity. I am an athlete. Thank you GNC.
Cecilia From Florida
Hello there! My name is Cecilia. I'm 30 years old and a stay-at-home mom of two boys. When I first started my weight-loss journey with GNC, I was topping the scale at 220 pounds. I've been overweight for 11 years and was ashamed and embarrassed of the way I looked. With commitment and hard work, 10 months after I started, I lost 80 pounds. I couldn't have done it without GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shakes™ and Burn 60™. Thanks to these awesome products, I was able to accomplish my goal. I recommend these products to my family and friends all of the time.
Kristina From Florida
This is my inspiring weight-loss story told through the eyes and mouth of my nine-month-old boy. Since his birth, on August 30, 2012, I have lost 60 pounds of pregnancy weight! That's right. I gained a whopping 60 pounds while being pregnant. Thankfully, I have been able to lose it all without going to the gym. People ask me all the time, "How did you do it?" Watch this hilarious video to learn how.
William From Florida
Weighing in at 320 pounds, it was a struggle to bend over and tie my shoes. I had hit rock bottom and realized that a drastic lifestyle change was necessary. It has been one and a half years since I made this commitment to myself, and I now weigh 195 pounds. During this weight-loss journey, I have completed two triathlons, three half marathons and one marathon. With the help of my local GNC, I have been able to educate myself and obtain the necessary tools to make this important lifestyle change.
John From California
Eighteen months ago I weighed over 400 pounds and was morbidly obese. I realized that I did not want to die. That is when I started my strength and weight-loss journey to make what I thought was impossible, possible. Since then I have lost 155 pounds. Though I have a long way to go, I know that I will achieve my goal of being a 185-pound hero within.
