Nick Francour

My story begins in Bloomington IL with a New Year’s resolution for 2010. Like most people I always made resolutions but never ended up following through with them. For as long as I can remember I have been overweight. I was always putting everyone else’s needs before my own. I had become a pro at lying to myself—tricking myself into thinking I wasn’t as unhealthy as I actually was. I don’t remember the exact reason why, but something just snapped within me and I knew I needed to make a change. When I stepped onto the scale January of 2010, I looked down to see a 325 staring right back at me. I decided I wasn’t going to allow myself to be fooled by my own lies anymore. I remember looking at myself in the mirror and thinking "What happened? How did you allow yourself to become this person?" So then I asked myself "What are you going to do about this?" and decided then and there to change my life.
For the first time I decided to make the change, not for anyone else: this one was for me. I started eating right and going to the gym, taking the stairs—anything I could do. I had some good success doing things on my own and I was very self-motivated. I heard of a new program called Ferrell’s ExtremeBodyShaping opening up. I hadn’t had a support group before but joined as part of their initial 10 week session. At Ferrell’s I found exactly what I needed—a group of people who wanted to make a change in their life and knew the emotions and struggles I dealt with. I was excited to continue my journey and be able to share my story and help others to succeed just as I was. After my initial 10 week session was over, I was so excited and so motivated with this program that I decided to become an instructor. I had gone on to lose 100+ POUNDS!!! I was overwhelmed with the changes and successes I have made.
I had met my wife, now have 2 beautiful daughters, and relocated to Dallas TX. After being away from the gym and finding all the excuses not to find the time, I found myself back there at the 327 pound mark. Discouraged and down I saw that Shannon and Mustaali were in Dallas as well, and opening up a FXB!!! I joined as part of their grand opening! During my 10 week session here in Texas, I lost over 26 pounds, tripled my pushups and sit-ups, shaved over 3 ½ mins off my mile run and was back on my journey getting the support and motivation from my new Texas Family! I have gained my confidence back and know that I did it once, I can do it again. I'm here to help and support anyone that I can, and if I can do it you can do it! Let’s get to our goals together!!
