Incredible story from our corporate wellness director Keven Burdorf and our friend Sherri!

When Sherri began working with PTI in 2016 she was mentally stressed out by being overweight. She expressed that she did not feel good physically but even more did not like who she saw in the mirror. She had thrown in the towel on her weight and felt that working with us was her last resort. It did not take long for her to find a passion for running. It started out slowly but over time she was able to run faster and for greater distances. In class she was exposed to what a balanced diet is supposed to look like and she immediately began implementing it at home with her family. After 9 months Sherri was almost a completely different person physically however her mental attitude had done a complete 180. She was all smiles and energy, she had found her happiness again.

Recently I was contacted by Sherri and asked to run a 5k with her, her first one ever. I was honored by the request and accepted. Since I had not seen her in several months I was unprepared for the Sherri that I met at the race. She had smashed her weight loss goal out of the park and had kept faithful to her new found lifestyle. She now looks amazing and is looking to run more races now that she knows she has trained properly for it. We are so proud of Sherri and all that she has accomplished.Keven & Sherri!
