Eli Sapharti: FAT Boy FIT Man

(click the banner to enter the site!)


“At  42 years old and I am in the best shape of my life. Just a little over 4 years ago I was in the WORST shape of my life. Not only physically, but also emotionally and mentally. I believe these all go hand in hand.

In 2008 I had ballooned to almost 300 lbs standing at 6′ and my body fat percentage was well over 40%. My blood pressure was elevated, I felt tired all the time, if I walked a flight of steps I would lose my breath, my joints were hurting, and I was always getting some type of flu or cold.

Around March of 2008, shortly before the end of an almost 18 year marriage, I had what many would call an epiphany. One day I looked at myself in the mirror and couldn’t believe how unhealthy and just plain fat I had allowed myself to get. At that moment I knew I had to do something to change this downward spiral and begin setting the right example for my 3 children.  As I thought about past attempts to lose weight I realized that the “quick fixes” and fad diets I had tried, although successful short term, were not going to work if I wanted to make LIFE-LONG changes.

That is when I decided to try a different approach and came up with my ONE STEP AT A TIME = SUCCESS! approach and principles.   Small, consistent changes allowed me to acheive the body I have today 180 POUNDS with 10% body fat. I am also an avid runner having finished my last 10K in 47:43 and my last 5K in 22:01 and two half marathons in 1:49.  All being my personal best times. My drive and passion today is in helping inspire, motivate and teaching YOU that YOU too can achieve a healthy and strong body YOU can be proud of, no matter how much weight YOU have to lose.

“Whether you’re running a spring marathon or just a neighborhood 5K, follow these 30 tips from 30 veteran marathoners to have the best race of your life.”

From Gabriel Sanders: Honestly, I have only recently joined the world of running, influenced and supported  by my beautiful girlfriend Carey Yaruss, who recently ran the NYC Half.  These 30 tips are definitely helpful and inspirational to those just starting out, or longtime veterans, and really hone in on aspects that may be overlooked.   I actually already incorporate some of these tips into my training and yoga sessions (concentrating on form, hydrating, listening to your body, and focusing on the task, to name a few), but these are primarily for runners.  Read these through.  Even if you already know them, it’s always good to get a refresher.
