CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Two Coastal Bend businesses are teaming up to help provide a chance to fulfill a popular New Year's resolution.
Charlotte and Levi Murray said they’ve lost a combined eight of 90 pounds over time thanks to dedication, focus and sticking with a keto diet and going to the gym at Hybrid Fitness Academy.
The Murrays said baby steps led to big success.
“It's really a lifestyle,” said Charlotte Murray , a local educator.
Margie Castillo, owner of PHAT Keto Company in Corpus Christi, said she hopes to educate the public on the benefits of a Keto diet.
Castillo said her business is teaming up with Hybrid Fitness Academy to educate people in the Coastal Bend on the benefits of staying healthy for the new year and tackling fitness goals.
“So this is something that we learn as we go and share and that is how we help other people,” Castillo said.
Santos Rosales, owner of Hybrid Fitness Academy, said consistency is key for those wanting a healthier lifestyle.
“So they eat right but they don’t work out," he said. "We do offer personalized custom-meal plans, and we also offer the unlimited training sessions."
Charlotte Murray said she has gained so much muscle, she now has a new perspective of her body and what healthy looks and feels like.
"What I love about our trainer is he tells us you know, our success is just not determined by the scale,” she said.
And Levi Murray, a local educator who describes himself as a dessert connoisseur, said he appreciated the restaurant’s dessert menu.
“You know from the cheesecakes, to the cakes in a cup, the cookies," he said. "She also personalizes things, like the birthday cake. So it opens up a window of opportunity that you did not have before.”
If you are looking to start your new diet this year, Phat Keto will be having a special until the end of February providing $5 off a 12-inch or 16-inch pizza.
