I started 1/20 at 293. 6 Months later I'm at 240. I also through my lifting and cardio passed the cpat. For those of you who dont know the cpat is a grueling 10 minute agility test for the position of entry level firefighter. It starts with 3 minutes on the stairmill with 75 lbs on. When i first started I was winded going up 2 flights of stairs..
