Now he’s a lean, mean, Canadian carving machine
I have been overweight for over 25 years. At age 54, my doctor said my weight had increased to 315 pounds and that I was now diabetic.
This was an eye opener for me and I had two options: take medication to control my sugar levels; or change my diet and start exercising. I chose the latter.
I purchased a good elliptical trainer and a home gym. I started working out everyday and cut most sugars and and anything deep fried from my meals.
The first three weeks was very tough. I was majorly depressed and had a really rough time. But I felt that I had abused my body all these years and it was now time for payback. I didn’t want to die young, like my parents due to unhealthy lifestyles (and cancer).
When I noticed Trikke on a late night infomercial, I thought all infomercials were bogus. But watching the body movement, it seemed as if the Trikke would be a really good exercise, seeing as how I damaged my knees long ago hiking.
I stumbled across a cheap Trikke knockoff and purchased it, only to find that it was a blast to ride but too small for me. I found a Trikke dealer near me and purchased a real Trikke T8 Air. From that point on, weight loss has been a blast!
I started at 315 pounds. Over the course of two years, I’ve lost 120 pounds and now weigh 195. It’s like going back in time. I feel so much better now. I used to snore, had sleep apnea, headaches and heartburn. I now have none of that! I sleep better, too.
Eating healthier and exercising is the key. I didn’t even follow any diet plan. I just ate smarter, reading all the labels. Trikke made my weight loss so much more fun. I still can’t stop riding and I’ll never go back to a bike.
I used to have severe back pain due to a bulging L4 Disc. I spent two years going to a chiropractor with no relief. After riding my Trikke for three months, my back pain was gone! I was amazed. It strengthened my back and my core, and helped build up my old, lazy muscles.
I quickly upgraded to a T12 and have now carved over 8,000K (5,000 miles) on it. I still enjoy it as much as the first day. I would like to say thank you to Trikke for such a wonderful product, and durable, too!
