Blaine Podaima with Al Bernier at Podaima Performance

Al’s Inspiring Fitness Journey in Winnipeg: From Overweight to Fit at 60

Aging can often seem synonymous with decreasing fitness levels and increasing weight. Yet, stories like Al’s from Winnipeg show that it’s never too late to redefine personal health goals. As Al approached his 60th birthday, he took the challenge of getting back into shape, head-on.

Understanding the Need for Change

For many, age becomes a limitation, but for Al, it was a call for transformation. He reflected, “I did not want to enter my 60s going in the same direction that I had been heading for the past 20 years. I was 50 lb. overweight and out of shape.”

Choosing Podaima Performance in Winnipeg

Navigating the fitness landscape can be daunting. Yet, Al found a trusted partner in Podaima Performance. His first interaction with Blaine was telling: “When I reached out to Blaine, he began with a phone interview, ensuring his program was a fit for me. He wasn’t just looking to sign up anyone.”


The Success: A Result of Dedication and Guided Efforts

Al’s determination combined with the structured approach of Podaima Performance bore fruits.

“Well after almost 2 years of procrastinating following that phone interview, I finally pulled the trigger a few months before my 60th birthday… I had a goal to lose 50 pounds in 50 weeks and I beat that by losing 50 pounds in 38 weeks while improving my strength and fitness levels!”

The training regimen, the equipment, and most importantly, the trainers played a pivotal role in Al’s successful journey.

The Personal Touch at Podaima Performance

The Podaima Performance difference is palpable from the first interaction.

  • Limited Client Workouts: Al loved the attention to detail, noting, “I love the fact that there are never more than four clients working out at any given time.”
  • Flexible Scheduling: Flexibility is key, especially for busy adults. Al mentions, “I appreciate the flexibility of the staff to accommodate my erratic schedule when I need to change my workout date and time.”
  • Expertise and Motivation: Al’s journey was made smoother with the consistent encouragement and knowledge shared by the trainers. “Blaine and the trainers are very knowledgeable and friendly and are always encouraging to me about my progress.”

Beyond Physical Transformation

The benefits of a fitness journey often transcend the physical. Al states, “After every workout, I walk out of that facility feeling absolutely fantastic because my energy level is so high.”

His story serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for many looking to make a similar change in their lives. -Al Bernier /
