12 Week Body Transformation Champions!

August 2013, I was 145 lbs. and in shape. After that Summer, I was traveling for work and spending time with people that were not positive influences. I was drinking and eating to cope with stress and depression and found myself the victim of toxic relationships. I started to gain weight and people told me I would never be in shape again. I was in such a weak mindset, I started to believe it. December 2015, I was 188 lbs. My trainer Shelby was very concerned about my well-being. Shelby got me out of a dark place and got me on track with my food and exercise. I was no longer starting my diet every Monday.
December 2016, I was 162 lbs. Shelby referred me to Stasi Longo. Shelby was trained by Stasi and said, “Do every single thing Stasi tells you to do.” During my first workout with Stasi, I was in shock. While on the leg press, Stasi held this picture of my behind to motive me and it worked. My mind was back in the game and my body was responding. I ignored people that told me I would never make it 12 weeks. Well, I made it 12 weeks, no cheat meal or alcohol and lost 19% body fat. This transformation brought me back to a place I never thought I would be again with my body and mind. I stand here today at 145 lbs. and in the best shape of my life.

Within the last 12 weeks, I’ve worked harder than I’ve ever worked in my life. From food shopping, meal prepping, lifting and doing tons of cardio, my lifestyle has changed. Much of my time is devoted to achieving health, fitness and body goals. The results shown here are a dream come true for me. Everyday that I do something healthy for my body, it is a victory against every person who ever said I wasn’t worthy, wasn’t capable or that I would never be able to achieve greatness. When transforming your body, you are telling those around you and yourself that the impossible is possible through hard work, dedication, sweat and perseverance. Standing before you 100 pounds less from where I started last March, 30 pounds less from where I was 12 weeks ago is proof that anyone can rise from the ashes.
I would like to thank my trainer Stasi Longo for educating me to succeed and most importantly, believing in me when I had given up hope. All too often, you see an unfit obese person before you see the potential that person could have to become great. Stasi saw me at 260 pounds for the potential I could have and has helped me to transform my figure since August. She has helped me overcome many of my obstacles making me a better version of myself. Stasi has given me the gift of transformation and I couldn’t be more grateful for her guidance and expertise throughout this journey.

Congratulations to all of

I have been working out with Stasi for a year now. I am amazed at how much stronger I have gotten and how much better I feel. Strength training gives me the confidence to tackle any task that comes my way. I had trained with another trainer for several years but in this past year with Stasi I have progressed much farther than I ever have. I am an avid cyclist and Stasi has strengthened my legs and cardio so that climbing the city street hills are not “nearly impossible” any longer. I also find myself riding faster for longer distances.
Stasi is always encouraging and a wonderful support. Even on my worst days she pushes me to limits I didn’t think possible a year ago. I am so glad I switched gyms and highly recommend Sonshine Fitness Gym for strength and cardio training.

I’ve always trained on my own but when I was asked to do my first bikini competition I hadn’t a clue where to start. I asked around and everyone told me if I wanted to do well I had to work with Stasi. Let me tell you everyone was right!
While other competitors were freaking out about show day I felt over prepared for never having stepped on stage before. Competitors were asking me what to expect and what they should do when they were on stage! Not only did Stasi prepare me mentally for competition day, but she was the brains behind my winning physique! She truly is amazing at her job. In just 12 short weeks she sculpted my body by learning how it responds to food intake and workouts. She didn’t set any crazy restrictions. Instead she kept it real with me and set realistic goals. Most importantly we did everything natural and healthy the entire prep!
There was not one part of the competition that Stasi was not a part of. She taught me how to pose, helped choose my bikini, choose my jewelry, and choose my stage walk song. The number one thing I loved about having Stasi as my coach was that she gave constructive criticism until everything was perfect. We didn’t stop working on something until it was the best I could do. Stasi understands the dangers of competitions, how mentally challenging they can be. Therefore, she was constantly checking up on me making sure I stayed positive and healthy- even after competition! I could not have had a better coach for my first bikini competition. If you want to be a winner you want a coach who is beyond knowledgeable, who cares, and will keep it real with you.
You want Stasi Longo!

My thirteenth birthday present was a gym membership.  Since that day, I’ve been addicted to the gym.  It kept me out of trouble in my youth and gave me something positive to put my negative energy into as an adolescent.  I grew up watching my mom deteriorate from Multiple Sclerosis.  She was diagnosed when she was 39, I was 10.  Since my early years in the gym, I’ve carried a dream of becoming a body builder.  At the age of 35 and with the dreaded age of 39 on the horizon, I decided to make a serious attempt at becoming a body builder.  Two of my coworkers recommended Stasi to me.  From the first visit, I got a good vibe, a comfortable feeling that this was a good fit.  I told her, “I want to know what it’s like to be a body builder.”  In the end, like it or not, that’s exactly what I got.

Stasi seemed unsure of my capability to compete at first.  She critically assessed my physique and noted areas that needed improvement.  Stasi designed a diet and workout program specific to my needs.  She recommended necessary supplements.  Every month she would change the workout so that I wouldn’t become bored and would take my measurements to ensure the diet was working.  As I hit plateaus, she tweaked the diet and workout programs to ensure my goals continued to be met.

SUSAN WRITES……..

“I was so shocked and pleasantly surprised after a recent Doctor’s appointment concerning my blood test results!
My LDL (bad cholesterol) went from 130 to 98, My HDL (good cholesterol) increased by 8 and my overall cholesterol decreased by 21 points! The only thing that I did differently this past 3 months was signed up with Stasi at Sonshine Fitness for personal training. I can’t believe these excellent health benefit results!”

I focus on the Paleo lifestyle, whole food nutrition, exercise and am on my way to a dramatic body transformation working with my trainer, Stasi Longo (Sonshine Fitness), to get my body tight, toned and perfect! My goal is to prove that you don’t need weight loss surgery or plastic surgery to have the body of your dreams, just the mindset and the willingness to work hard. The question is, can I accomplish this?

Can I have a body that doesn’t shake, a body that is solid, a body that I am proud of? Only time will tell, so please, take this journey alongside me to find out just how far a fat to fit person can go!

My nutrition journey started when I read It Starts With Food back in 2013. I tried some of the Well Fed recipes, enjoyed them, but didn’t excel or take any of the information too seriously,

Talking About Sonshine Fitness & Stasi Longo

Dawn

My first appointment with Stasi Longo was ? 2008. My fellow figure friends told me I should be a figure competitor (I actually wanted to be a fitness girl, but at 36 with a limited gymnastics background I didn’t pursue it).
The first appointment I remember being intimated by Stasi’s trophies, her competition picture, and the many pictures of her champions throughout the studio. (I can’t remember where/why but I did feel that way at one time). Stasi had trained so many and everyone looked so great! What had I gotten myself into? I couldn’t do this! Oh boy.
Stasi asked what my goals were – I told her I wanted to compete. She shook her head and said, “In what?” “All my friends said I should do figure”, I replied. To which she replied, “Ok, put on these heals.”
We both chucked after that and Stasi said, “Take off those heals – you’re a bodybuilder.”
Those words have been in my head ever since.
Stasi’s strong faith, confidence, and many, many, MANY words of encouragement got me through my first 16 weeks of training………READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

MEL

My name is Melanie Denny. In April 2013 I competed in my first figure competition at the NANABF Natural Pittsburgh, and I placed 4th and 5th at that competition. I knew that I wanted to get back on stage and hopefully place better than my first show; however, I needed the right person to direct me. That’s when I contacted Stasi Longo. Stasi was instrumental to me during my contest preparation. I met with Stasi every few weeks at which time she assessed and evaluated my posing technique. During our meetings, she also monitored my weight, fat loss, and muscle gains. Stasi developed different training routines for me to work on that included specific attention on developing my symmetry.

Rather than isolation exercises, I started doing a lot of power lifting and compound movements. These compound exercises took my physique to a completely different level. Not only did Stasi build my physique, she also helped me build confidence in myself……READ FULL TESTIMONIAL
