4 Ways to Make Muscle With Mimi
Mimi is one of those people who lights up your day the second you meet her. More than just a friendly face in Texas, though, Mimi is a fighter. Diagnosed with MS in 2002 and weighing just over 450 pounds a little over a year ago, she knew that something needed to change.
“I was having a hard time; just playing with grand kids, just getting through the day. So I decided that was enough and I learned how to eat right and I wanted to learn how to exercise better.”
She joined a gym, hired a personal trainer, and has now lost over 140 pounds (let’s pause and say HOLY MUCK, Mimi, that’s amazing!) and continues to work towards her fitness goals.

Aaron put together the workout routine below for Mimi. He also works with her on building her stamina so that she’s ready on September 29 to conquer the three miles between obstacles. It’s important to note that Aaron is a professional and ensures Mimi’s safety is taken into consideration while doing these exercises… make sure you do the same!
