Community Matters

If it's fav Bible vs day mine is Jude 22 - And of some have compassion making a difference. GPP does this for me. Love this place. GPP has made a difference with their great community and helping me to become fitter, which has affected so many other areas - relationships, energy/attitude, even time management. Thank you so much for making this available to those of us who could never come to a formal class at GPP.

1 Year of GPP

Also, was going to mention this yesterday but totally forgot. Yesterday was my one year mark at GPP. I started 6 weeks after having my first baby thinking it would kick start my workout routine again, and I quickly became addicted. Here I am a year later, at my lowest weight ever, and at my strongest ever. I dropped the baby weight fast. I started to see muscles fast. I ran my first half-marathon 5 months after having my baby without any training other than GPP (longest I had run since the baby was 8 miles). I recovered quickly. Totally surprised myself.

Point is, GPP works. I've had fun, made friends, and become stronger. Thanks to my sister Sid for encouraging me to get in the doors and start, and now I'm hooked. Thanks GPP. - Morgan 

23 LBS Down in Less Than 4 Weeks

First of all, I love GPP as it is and it's been making me a progressively better person every day since Intensive training certification. Just throwing it out there. Frankly Im going to do whatever you tell me to do. I've lost 23lbs since you were here in NWA doing intensive with us. I think it hasn't quite been 4 weeks yet. -SlimJim

Down 6 After 4 Day Cleanse

I ended up losing 6 pounds after doing the 4 day cleanse. I definitely wanted to lose the weight, but even more important to me was a good "reset" on my eating. I didn't seem to be able to get on top of my diet. I had gotten into some bad habits (i.e. eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted) and couldn't seem to pull myself out of it. The cleanse totally did that for me. Yes, it is stinkin' hard, but it is SO worth it. I feel like I have control over my food now, instead of the other way around. -Amy Vercillo

10 Weeks In

This is my 10th week in GPP. I am feeling stronger and I know I am stronger. I can't wait for week 20 to see what progress has been made! For me, so much of this journey is mental..some times I think there is no way I can complete a workout or I am afraid I will puke.. and I don't ever want to do that especially with other people around. :) The only reason I post this is that hopefully someone else can identify and it may help. -AJ

GPP is the Best Thing I Have Ever Done

About a year and a half ago a friend if mine introduced me to GPP. And I'm completely hooked. It's the best thing I have ever done. I accomplish things I never thought to be possible. It's amazing stuff and I truly believe in the program. My friend and I get the crazy stare from other people while we are GPPing at the Rec Center. It's alot of fun.  Thank you Neil!

Lost 18 inches & 15 lbs

Hit my one year mark the other day. I have lost a total of 18 inches and on my scale from my heaviest to lowest I have lost 15 lbs. I love the physical change I have had. My running has improved, I am not a whimp anymore and my jeans are much smaller but what I love even more is the change I've had on the inside. I respect myself so much more. I am finally learning that "I am not my body". When I first started GPP I told my husband I was going to go for just a few months to help train for the Ogden half, one year later I'm telling my husband I'll be going to GPP for life. Thank you Neil, Lizz and Meg and of course all you GPPers.

Down 25 lbs, Passed PT Test

I have to give a shout out to Dr J. Stanley. He has made some incredible progress in just a few short months. He came to Ft. Sill at the end of July, and started GPPing about 2 months ago. He is now down 30lbs (25 of which he is crediting to GPP) and he passed his PT test. Before GPP he could not meet the minimums for PU or SU, he needed to peel over a minute off his 2 mile run, and he couldn't pass the weight/tape. Well, last week was a milestone for him. He did it all with flying colors! Good job Jay. As a reward you can now be deployed.

Lost 11 lbs & Feel Strong

Happy Birthday to ME! Today is my birthday. 38!  I weighed in this morning...Pre-Baby weight. (15 years in the making) I hit it once before this summer, but then slipped a little with the onset of the FALL binge. I've lost 4 pounds since starting GPP Turkey Day Challenge and 11 pounds total since starting GPP this summer.  I feel great physically, but the changes I am making in all other aspects of my life are incredible. I feel empowered and healthy and strong and free. I just want to wrap my arms around people and tell them to live and be happy, to serve and to love. I attribute so much of that to all ya all at GPP! Thank you for the best birthday ever!
