The Gift of Fitness & Health

It is Important that we don’t let ourselves go. We focus lots of our time and energy on keeping our families happy, keeping up with our social lives, keeping up with our bills and not losing our jobs. It seems as though we forget that in order to keep all those things in track, we must pay a lot more attention than we do on our physical and mental health.

This holiday we suggest you treat yourself or a loved one who may need this more than anything, to the gift of fitness and health! At Live in Fitness weight loss camp, we provide you with the steps you need to lead a healthier and fitter life. What better way to get started on such an important part of your life, than doing it at a state of the art weight loss fitness camp retreat at Hilton Head island. No better way to get up and be motivated every morning than at our islands retreat.

Our programs are designed and customized to your body type, level and age. After our complete assessments and testing, we make sure to give each person the exact amount of attention their body needs and has been craving.

Find Out Why You Struggle To Lose Weight!

YOU LOSE WEIGHT DIFFERENTLY

Many people think that there is a one size fits all approach to losing weight and keeping your body balanced, but that is far from the truth.  We are all unique, and when faced with losing weight or changing our body composition, we must have a customized approach.  We perform a series of Tests & Assessments so that we can put a specific plan to get you to your fitness & weight loss goals.  One of the obvious pieces of data that we need to be able to put a plan together, is to find out your resting metabolic rate (RMR).  Here is a letter from a wonderful guest of ours who has lost 31 lbs using this important data…….

Dear Live in Fitness!!

Once again I’m thrilled to report I’m stronger than Howard (my husband)!!! (Just Kidding).  No, but usually I do find it hard to pick up my plants in their heavy pots to get them outside for fresh air! But guess what?!  I was able to bring them out with no problem this time…

Also I’m excited to say, that  after the third time it finally is sinking in that the RMR of 1297 is a number that is key to my continued weight loss…This particular test is giving me a platform to guide my vehicle (as Eric taught me) into the ability to deduct my calories from that total and know precisely the needed calories i burn in order to either stay at my current weight of 146lbs or to continue to my goal of 125lbs.

At 5’2 and 177 lbs where I began my journey, it was getting harder and harder  to bring down my cholesterol of 270.  Now I’m excited to get my numbers from my doctor and I’ll let you know!

Please tell all the trainers, the chefs and the entire staff that I could not have done it without y’all… The peace of Hilton Head Island, the amazing meals and those outrageous coconut chocolate chip macaroons at night……tell Matt WooHoo!!

All in all I met great friends and feel you are all like family to me!!

I have to come back again soon and I will!  I had the best time ever!!!

Give my regards to Eric and tell him thank you for bringing a little piece of Paradise into my life!

YOUR RESTING METABOLIC RATE

This is the rate at which your body burns calories (otherwise known as the fuel that revs your engine).  If you consume more fuel than what your tank can hold, you will gain weight.  If you are trying to reduce your weight, you will need to burn off more calories than what you are consuming.   The question is, how do you know how many calories you need to burn to get to your goal?  How many calories do you need to burn to then maintain your weight?  We are able to find this out thru our RMR Testing that we do on site.  Once we have that number for you, we can more accurately determine how many calories you should be consuming each day, and how many more calories you need to burn thru exercise to get to your goals in the most effective and efficient way possible.  You are unique, and your fitness & weight loss program needs to be too!

Ask Eric: ” How Can I Build Muscle Fast?”

Take it from a guy who’s been doing this his whole life.  – Fitness Camp.

I’ve trained professional athletes, actors seeking to bulk up for roles, and everyday people who want to look and feel fantastic. Building muscle is not just about pumping iron!

Strength building isn’t just for guys wanting big muscles. Anyone looking to speed up their metabolism, appear lean, and feel sculpted should be building muscle. Especially after the weight drops off.

Women — training like this is the “Fountain of Youth.” It will tighten your skin. No surgery needed.

Here are just a few of my tips on how to build up lean muscle in the fastest, most effective way possible:

1.  The Feel Technique

A learned technique, where direct pressure applied to the muscle during workout allows the brain to connect to the muscle. When done properly one workout has three times the impact.  So one week equals about three weeks, and one year is equal to almost three years of results. This technique is one of the main reasons celebrities and athletes keep coming back to train with us.

2.  Push to Failure, Punishing Pain at the end

Train like a beast, look like a beauty. That’s exactly what it takes. The last three to five reps of pure pain help rip the muscle so it can be rebuilt, bigger and stronger. Not everyone has what it takes to be toned. As I always say, It takes hard work and an unrelenting pursuit of a goal. So when you think you can’t push any further, dig deep, just a couple more!

3. Fuel Yourself

No matter how long or hard you work your muscles, if the fuel for your body is not optimized, you will not gain lean mass, period!

You wouldn’t put cheap fuel in a formula- one race car, would you? What about an airplane…would you feel comfortable flying on low-budget fuel? No, of course not. Your body is a complicated system that is unique to you. It has to have the correct combo of protein, carbs and fats to maximize lean mass. Protein also controls hormones that will in-turn control your metabolic process.

Eat lean, eat often, and grow your body properly.

Stay strong in mind, body, and spirit!

Leonor -Lost 24Lbs

Leonor

Leonor came to LIFE’s weight loss program all the way from Venezuela in search of a new beginning.  She had planned to attend school that fall in Venezuela as an architecture student and continue her studies, but she knew she wanted to be the best she could be before she began her career. As a child and throughout her adolescence Leonor had a passion for sports. She became a gifted tennis player, and it quickly became her outlet and a great way to stay in shape. However, with no real knowledge or understanding of what it meant to have a balanced diet, the moment she stopped playing tennis the weight began to pile on. Soon enough, and almost seamlessly she had become overweight without even taking notice as to how she let herself get to that point. She had lost sight of her self-image and her self-esteem, and she even stopped playing tennis.  Once, enrolled in LIFE’s weight-loss program it was clear that Leonor was determined to get her healthy life back. Following her schedule thoroughly and relentlessly and pushing herself beyond the limit made Leonor a true exemplary participant. With a level of commitment unrivaled by anybody else in the camp she became a leader and a true inspiration to others. By the end of the program she was able to play tennis again without her weight being an obstacle. In little time she was able to accomplish her weigh loss goals, but the genuine friendships she made, and the commitment to a healthy lifestyle for her were truly priceless.
