This is some seriously inspirational stuff.
It's not often that you hear about massive weight loss without the use of a gym, but Jared Zaworski proved that it can be done. Our friends at BroBible had the chance to interview him and see how he did it.
Brandon Wenerd spent some time discussing the journey with Jared, and heres what he had to say:
My name is Jared. About 7 months ago I was 302 lbs. I was 24 years old and told myself I couldn’t be 25 and be over 300 lbs, so I figured it was time for drastic changes. I wanted to lose 100 lbs by my birthday on October 6th. Today is the 26th of October and I’m 190 lbs.
I completely cut out all soda and sugar based drinks, started drinking a gallon of water a day and cut out bread and all fast food. I lost almost 60 lbs in the first two months and got addicted to the results I was seeing. So I just kept going. Losing 110 lbs in 7 months isn’t easy, but is definitely obtainable if you stick to your diet and do a lot of cardio. I love basketball so I played a lot of that and also started jogging with some sprints involved to get the heart rate up. I also incorporated box jumps.
The one thing I’ve prided myself in is that I have no set foot in a gym once. You don’t need a gym to meet your fitness goals. You can jog, do push-ups, and do sit-ups anywhere. Now that I’m at a weight where I feel comfortable, I started weightlifting to tone up and build some lean muscle.
On why he though it was important to lose the weight without going to the gym:
To be honest, I wanted to show that gyms are overrated… I would just jog about a mile and a half to my buddy’s house who had his own basketball court and play every day — either by myself or get a good pick up game going. After the game was over, everyone would be dead tired and would drive home. I would then jog the 1.5 miles back home. I think that really jump started the weight loss.
How his life has changed since losing the weight:
My favorite thing about the weight loss is people asking me for tips on how to do it and saying I have inspired them to start their own journey.
When it comes to my social life, I have always been a social person — what people would call me the life of the party. I party less because drinking definitely doesn’t help the weight loss, but I’m still a bro a heart so it’s hard for me to turn down a good turn up. When it comes to girls, its funny to me — I’m pretty sure they are more shallow than guys. Not saying I was abstinent before, but losing the weight has helped in that area. Lol.
I do landscaping and pressure washing(..mobile detailing) for work, so not carrying around 110 extra lbs has been a big help.
We tip our protein shakes to you Jared, congratulations on the transformation and being such an inspiration. This is proof that with dedication and some grit anyone can accomplish their goals!
