Johnny used to be on a bunch of medication for diabetes, blood pressure, pain, and heart burn. He used to be over 300lbs. He got the lap band surgery and hit a plateau at 270lbs and THAT was the moment he signed up at SDSW with Coach Ben Landry. That was the moment Johnny Tavernier screamed out to the world that "enough is enough and I am taking by my health back"! Less than 6 months in the program, he lost another 60lbs of body fat and gained 10lbs of lean, solid muscle! He's more athletic, agile, flexible, powerful and strong. He has more stamina and one thing is for sure: he is no longer back at who he "used to be"!
