April Wood had trouble walking and moving when she weighed 440 pounds. She knew it was affecting her children, so she started a life transformation journey.
Matt Hoodie, her trainer in north Scottsdale, knew what she was facing. He too had lost 150 pounds.
"It gives me a little bit different perspective than a trainer who's maybe been in shape his whole life or her whole life," Hoodie said.
Wood trains once a week and recently became a Zumba instructor.
Now down 280 pounds, she is facing a new challenge.
"One of the biggest challenges is the loose skin," Hoodie said. "It can tear and it can be really painful so I made a GoFundMe for her."
