How Wayne Combated His Weight Gain During Lockdown

How a weight gain during lockdown spurred Wayne into losing 11% body fat.

The last 22 months have, unfortunately, not been kind to some people all across the globe, with many people admitting to lockdowns and restrictions taking their toll on health – both mental and physical. 

Wayne Benoit was no exception. Living in Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) Wayne realized he was gaining weight, with his clothes beginning to get tight around the waist, and when he looked at himself in the mirror, he really didn’t like who or what he was seeing. 

So when the gyms finally re-opened, he decided it was time to do something about it. 

How Wayne Got There

It was a gym called LF3 Fitness in Little Italy, Ottawa, Ontario that called Wayne’s name. LF3 stands for lifestyle fitness based on 3 core pillars – be strong, be healthy and be resilient. Wayne signed up with a focus on HIIT-style workouts. 

“They have some of the best trainers I’ve ever worked with, they’re high energy and they really push you to be your best,” he says. 

Now training at LF3 Fitness five days per week, Wayne originally started his journey using a meal prep service called Meal Prep Ottawa, a company that specializes in macro balanced meals specific to an individual’s needs. After learning everything he needed to learn about macronutrients, Wayne now does his own meal preps after discovering what his body responds to best. 

“As far as supplements go, I use an herbal Test Booster (Mutant) in the morning, one scoop of protein (Mutant) in my morning shake, BCAAs (Mutant) during my workout and creatine (EFX Sports) pre and post workout,” Wayne explains. 

“Since my journey began, my energy levels have increased dramatically and although I still have more goals to reach, I’m starting to really like who I see in the mirror.” 

The Best Bits About The Evolt 360

Wayne admits he loves the Evolt 360 body composition analyzer, saying his favorite features of the body scanner include how thorough each scan is and how easy-to-understand the reports are. 

“The number on my bathroom scale is not nearly as important as the ones that Evolt can provide,” he says. 

“My absolute favorite feature on the Evolt Active app is seeing the graph of my progress.”

“I’d recommend to anyone that no matter what your fitness goals are, whether it be losing weight, gaining weight or building lean muscle, get an Evolt scan to begin your journey so you can track and see your progress at any time.”

It’s time to take a comparison of some of Wayne’s Evolt 360 body scan results! The first scan we’re comparing was conducted on 24 August 2021, and the second was done on 19 November 2021.

A Starting Point. Because the number one reason members quit a gym is that they don’t use it enough, Evolt gets them motivated by providing a baseline measurement of the overall fitness. This motivates them to improve and provides an easy-to-understand measurement of their progress.


Better Nutrition. By using the free Evolt app, your clients can easily monitor the macronutrient breakdown that is updated with each scan. It takes the guesswork out of a nutrition plan.


Easy Reporting. Through Evolt Insights, our cloud-based reporting program, trainers have easy access to member profiles, allowing them to monitor their workouts and progress. It also facilitates automated Club Challenges.


Recurring Revenue. Evolt 360 actually creates a third revenue stream after membership dues and personal training fees. Do the math: If you add just $20 per month to your base membership for one scan a month, each client adds up to an additional $240 a year — $4800 a year for getting as few as 20 clients on the machine.


Unique Lead Generation. You can take your Evolt 360 out of the club to special events. Think health and wellness fairs, senior centers and recreation programs! The lead generation opportunities are limited only by your staff’s imagination.


Training for Trainers. We don’t just send you a box and leave you on your own. Evolt provides a proven on-boarding program for all new clients to make sure everyone understands the process and the science. Your success is our success.


Backed by Science. Evolt 360 is the exact opposite of a one-size-fits-all product. Its science accounts for the unique and personalized characteristics of every individual. Just like your club should!


And one more thing: Scientific literature has written time and time again that there is no such thing as a direct measure of body composition — except in a post-mortem dissection of a cadaver. Scientific validation of BIA technology has proven the use of specific algorithms that consider age and gender to improve the accuracy of body composition measurement. The Evolt 360 takes that even further by incorporating five specific personalized variables – height, weight, gender, age and impedance – to provide the most accurate body composition measurement for any individual.
