Join me on welcoming Takara Russ to the 1% podcast!

Takara was born and raised in San Bernardino and is the eldest of 6 siblings.

She is a special education teacher for the San Bernardino School District and has one of the most challenging but rewarding jobs working with preschoolers from age 3-5.

Takara struggled with her weight since she was a little girl, and never really knew how to lose weight the healthy way. She would starve herself and find that even after she lost weight, she would not only gain the weight back, but add on more!

Takara started her weight loss journey at the camp weighing in at 241 pounds. She was depressed and went in determined to simply lose weight, but walking out, she gained so much more than that

Todays Podcast is about Takara’s journey from being overweight and depressed, to a healthy life filled with happiness and fulfillment! Are you stumped on whether or not you should join a camp near you?

Take a listen to Takara’s journey and decide for yourself!

Enjoy the podcast!

Sam Bakhtiar is the Co-Founder of Camp Transformation Center that has impacted thousands of lives and grown to many locations with a vision of becoming a household name globally. From 1-1 personal training to expanding their offerings to group training which proved to be very affordable, they decided to expand into other areas and people liked the model so much that they decided to franchise this concept which proved to be successful. Being raised by a single mother, Sam immigrated from Iran to Pennsylvania, America after a series of bombings and fearing for their lives, his mother decided it was best to leave the country for a better life. After not making the cut for the basketball team, Sam went to the local boys club after his mother told him that he should start training and try out again the following year. However, Sam was fascinated by the people training at the gym and their physiques which inspired him to train to become a Champion Bodybuilder.
