Lia Santini (6-month update)

When a 30-day challenge turns into a 6-month challenge, the results can be life changing…

In May of this year (2015) Lia Santini accepted my 30-day challenge and lost 7-inches off her body and 6-lbs of body weight.

You can read about Lia’s 30-day Challenge here.

At the conclusion of the 30-day challenge Lia decided to continue to train with me and the results speak for themselves.

In 6-months Lia has lost a total of 12.5 inches off her body, 4 of those inches coming off her waist. In addition to the inches, Lia also lost 11-pounds of body fat.

Starting in October we began additional measurements using the TANITA Total body composition analyzer. Below are Lia’s Body Fat measurements.

Body Fat Measurement

This body fat graph show a downward trend from 23% body fat to 20%, thus putting Lia in the Athletic range for women!

Muscle mass

Lean mass body weight

This graph (above) shows Lia’s lean body mass which correlates to the body fat graph seen earlier. This means, that most (if not all) Lia’s weight loss has been body fat, this is a good thing!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, Lia is getting much stronger too. You may not believe this but Lia has never been able to do a “dead hang” pull-up. So after months of training Lia did her first unassisted, “dead hang” pull-up.

There you have it, in 6-months, Lia has lost body fat, built muscle and improved her over all strength.

Who’s next?!
