Dr. Banas Hello! This is Jerry. Great news since following the program you set for me I have lost 144 lbs.,I am below what doctors consider diabetic, my blood is now 121/72 and I have increased my walking to two hours a day. Thank You so much for saving my life and now I enjoy every day to the maximum. Thank You for all you do for me-Jerry Arnold
This is the best thing I have done for myself and my family. My father and brother have diabetes and are overweight and that is where I was heading. I was beginning to wonder is I would see my kids graduate from college and get married. Not only have I lost weight, but I stopped smoking and I lowered my blood pressure!” -Tod, Attorney
I went from 236 pounds, 42% Body fat and a blood pressure of 132/84 (Pre-hypertension) to 207lbs pounds, 31% Body fat and a blood pressure to 115/68 (Normal). I also greatly improved on my fitness evaluation” -Eugene, Firefighter
I came to Dr Banas for some help with my inability to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. He did a complete evaluation and developed a nutrition and weight loss program that was tailored to my specific needs. He considered my medical history; my past attempts at weight loss and developed a plan that worked for me. I never thought it would be so easy to lose weight and get back in shape! Dr Banas has given me a new lease on life! Through his expertise in nutrition, supplements and exercise, I'm a healthier person. I know I have a long life ahead of me now. I know how to maintain my health and well being - it is a direct result of the lifestyle changes that I learned from Dr Banas. Thank You Dr Banas - I never knew that I could achieve the goals that would take me back to the person I was at 25." –Phil, Business Owner
Thanks again for all your help over the last few months. Seeing some record splits and strength gains with the less volume an higher intensity approach.” Chris D. 11:54 Az Ironman
Dr Jeff trained me for the Alcatraz swim. Hey. I swam and played water polo in high school, but the most swimming that I had really done over the last 30 years was eating peaches in the shallow-end at home on Saturday mornings with my family. In October of 2011, I wanted to teach my daughters that they can tackle challenges beyond what they believe they can. It just takes determination. In January of 2012, I searched for and found Jeff as I was looking for a Certified USA Triathlon Coach. I told Jeff of my dream/purpose. He took me seriously and put me through a series of fitness and blood tests. And, I had my heart, shoulders and lungs checked with specialists. Then, over a span of roughly 100 days, despite asthma and years working at desks, he actively coached me by providing me with daily workout regimens, supplement advice and even PATIENTLY SWIMMING WITH ME AT CANYON LAKE to prepare me for a personal goal/milestone swim. In mid-May, Jeff took me for one last swim, wished me luck and over Memorial Day weekend in 2012, I traveled to San Francisco where my family watched me swim from Alcatraz Island to the shore. A lot of people do this, but without a steady, responsive and interested coach, I believe that I would not have. My only regret is not supporting him by posting this sooner. Thanks Jeff. – Brad
Ironman Arizona. I found the sport of triathlon back in 2004. Heading into my first Sprint Distance, I was excited and nervous as many are, just hoping to finish that day. The good news is I DID finish, but little did I know how addictive the sport is. I set a goal that day to one day complete a full Ironman. Fast forward to November, 2010. The planets aligned for me so that I could finally commit the time to prepare. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t in it to win it or get to Hawaii…I just wanted to finish. After signing up I knew I would need a coach and that’s when I found Dr. Banas. We met for the first time in early November and went over how we would work together over the next 12 months. Dr Banas was incredibly supportive and professional throughout the year. He was always available for my questions, made tons of suggestions to help me improve my fitness, and ultimately cheered me on to the finish of Ironman Arizona in November, 2011. I can’t say enough great things about Dr Banas’ coaching techniques. He tailored everything to my goals down to my “B” and “C” races. I also used his chiropractic services which are as good as any one could ask for. Thank you Dr Banas for your personal commitment to my success! I strongly recommend your services to anyone seeking great chiropractic care, or your coaching services. I am forever grateful for your partnership in my journey to become an Ironman!
