August’s Client of the Month is EMPOWER Raleigh’s very own Dan “The Man” Shattuck! Dan began training at the Raleigh location in March of 2014 after having lumber spine surgery on Thanksgiving of the previous year. He recognized his need for more than physical therapy, and due to the close proximity of the studio to his office, he decided to give EMPOWER a try. We sat down with Dan and asked him a few questions about his EMPOWER journey:
Q: What are your health/fitness goals?
“1. Achieve a level of physical fitness which would improve my health and stamina.
3. Mental Clarity
4. Add Fat-Free mass
5. to more closely resemble Rob King (just kidding)”
Q: What is your favorite thing about training at EMPOWER?
Dan: “I like the personalized approach my trainers have taken with me and their recognition of my limitations along with their focus on my strengths. The Whitehurst Method has made me a new man! All jokes aside, I have never had a better training experience. EMPOWER is professional , compassionate, and highly competent in the field of exercise and personal training. The staff are superior and one would be very hard pressed to find an equivalent professional training center in the Raleigh/Durham area.”
We also asked Dan how his life has changed after being awarded the honor of August’s client of the Month. His response, ” I just don’t want anyone to treat me differently. I’m not a celebrity; I just want to work out in peace.” This, of course, was after the EMPOWER Blog paparazzi asked for pictures and an autographs.
Congratulations Dan! Keep up the hard work and stay awesome!
