Why I Got Started

It all started when I was flipping through some pictures of my family reunion in December 2004. My family reunion was earlier that year, July to be exact. That's when I came across a picture of me standing on the beach with my shirt off.

I was totally disgusted how I looked. I let myself go way too far. I knew right then and there, it was time to make some changes physically and mentally. I was determined and ready, I had seen enough.


How I Did It

Well I started working out 5 days per week. I didn't know what I was doing, all I knew was the fat had to come off. I was about a month in and then BAM! I felt like a wall was crashing down on me. I had no energy, I felt weak and I wanted to quit; I had no idea how important nutrition was.

That's when I knew I needed answers. So, I started my search for answers. Growing up, I always admired Sylvester Stallone (who would of thought ... I'm Sicilian) for his success and fitness level. I started doing some research on him and I came across his new Product line on www.instonenutrition.com I was so excited!

Bible

I ordered everything he had available. I also entered his LIFE CHANGE CHALLENGE. It was a 16 week challenge. In 16 weeks I went from 196-to-164 pounds. I also ordered the Body Sculpting Bible for Men which lead me to an extensive 14-day workout which became my routine; after mastering the routine; I took the exercises that best suited me and my fitness goals and designed my own routines to change things up once in a while.

My Advice To Others

I would like to start off by saying thank you to Instone for helping me achieve my goals. They have been there all the way through. When I needed answers all I did was call them. If you decide to use Instone products you can call them at 1-866-Sly-Says! It's definitely worth it.

It's Definitely Worth It.

People should know that anything is possible if you want it to be possible. You always need to have that inner self keeping you going. I had one and I also had an idol to look up took, Sylvester Stallone.

If he hasn't shown the world that anything is possible I don't know who can. He has achieved and has made ME believe. Don't give up ... keep the clock ticking. You have to take control before it's too late.

I would like to add: you should reward yourself once a week and eat what you want (Within limits of course). Plus it keeps the body guessing. I hope that my story has motivated you to get on track and take control of your life. If anyone has any questions drop me an email. I would be happy to help fcastiglione@ellsouth.net.

I'm not a Doctor or anything but I can motivate you. Life is to short, grab it while you can and hold on as long as you can. I would like to thank my family for all the support. I love you all!
