Dana Sepko finds Fit City Success after making a life changing choice

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) -  A dance teacher, who has been active all her life, found herself in a position where a lot of moms find themselves.  Her body changed after having children and she just couldn't drop the baby weight. Dana Sepko finally made a choice that helped her find Fit City Success.

Dana Sepko says she remembers the day well.  It was June 6th of last year.  She was tired of feeling sluggish and struggling with knee pain, so she made a phone call to a gym that changed her life. I had it in my mind I was going to do Zumba.  Zumba is the closest thing to dancing that I do on a normal everyday basis," says Dana Sepko.  "I thought that would be a great place to start, I had no intention of joining this gym."

But Dana Sepko decided to join XTC Fitness and Sports, anyway.  She didn't want to weigh 165 pounds anymore.  Dana was skeptical about turning to a trainer, but she says Sam Brown turned out to be just what she needed to re-shape her body and lose weight and inches.

He crafted a tough workout for her that combined weights and cardio.  "Weights was one of those things I was worried about when I first started," says Sepko.  "Because the way my body is built, I did not want to look like a man.  I was worried about bulking up."

Sam Brown with XTC Fitness & Sports explained, "I told her she needed to strengthen those legs up.  I told her in building muscle, you burn more calories and more fat than if you were just doing cardio all of the time." 

"A month later he measured me," says Dana.  "I lost 7 inches all over."

Now, 8 months after revamping her diet and working out with Sam.  Dana is 30 pounds lighter and she's lost 35 inches total.

Dana says the thing she is most proud of is by losing the weight, she doesn't hurt anymore.  She no longer has to take anti-inflammatory pain medicine for her knee.

Dana says being a busy mom-- one of the hardest things for her was planning meals ahead of time, but she does now and it has made a big difference.
