Congratulations on Client Of The Week Norma! Norma lost a total of 9.5lbs in fat mass and a 1.25lbs increase in lean mass within 1 week!




Q: How did you come about Live-in-Fitness and first meet Eric?

A: I found out about Live In Fitness by searching the web for something like the show “The Biggest Loser.” I had no idea Live In Fitness existed! I found what I was looking for.


Q: Where are you from?

A: I am from Rio Grande Valley, Texas. 


Q: What is your career

A: I am a paramedic, I will be starting nursing school in the fall. 


Q: When did you notice a weight pattern or change if it applies?

A: It honestly felt from one day to the next because I didn’t even notice it but I want to say probably about 2 to 3 years ago. I woke up one day and It was just hard to move around and do daily activities. I feel like it has progressively gotten worst ever since.


Q: How did it make you feel/or affect your lifestyle?

A: I never thought I was in shape. We would eat all the time. I remember getting out of the water and feeling more hungry. Not following a healthy diet made it difficult for me to maintain my flexibility. 


Q: What were your biggest struggles?

A: Not being able to move the way I wanted to.


Q: What did you expect when coming here to LIFE? then & now?

A: The only thing I wanted was movement. Being able to move and do things as a normal person would. I honestly did not expect to lose as much weight as I have!


Q: How do you feel about your progress?

A: I feel so much better! I really do. I feel like it’s almost day and night from when I started to now! I know I still have more to go but this has set me up to go the rest of the way!



Q: What so far about the program has worked for you?

A: I used to be outside all the time growing up being in the water as well as even being called fish as a nickname. Starting my days with the hike every day at Live In Fitness, has helped me get a chance to do lap swims! It takes me back and reminds me of the things I used to love to do. Whether it was diving, fishing, or surfing. I’m glad I got the chance to enjoy the activities here at LIF.


Q: What is your opinion on Eric’s philosophies and approach to fitness and coaching?

A: Even being in the medical field I noticed it’s a very different approach than what I am used to. It’s like “What? Aren’t you suppose to eat less to lose weight?” That approach and the way Eric has his program down works! You can see it and feel the difference! 


Q: What do you look for in a coach?

A: Someone who is accountable. Who can make me accountable that is one of my struggles. I also, look for someone who is positive. I can’t have someone who will be negative or passive-aggressive. 


Q: What is your favorite class? What have been your favorite dishes?

A: I still have to say hikes in the mornings. All of chef Jason’s cooking is delicious but I still dream about his breakfast nachos! I took like 20 pictures of that dish!

Q: What advice would you give others contemplating attending the program?

A: I would advise others to try the program for at least two weeks! Also, bring everything on the list with you! 


Q: What advice would you give to others? Quote? Statement?

A: “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errors and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

—Theodore Roosevelt

daisy - weight loss motivation
Congratulations on losing 6.5 in only one week!

Daisy is from Longview, Texas, where she’s a student studying Elementary Education. That’s when things started to change. Daisy was constantly eating out and always felt tired, becoming extremely lazy.

“in college, a lot of my friends didn’t have the same type of metabolism like me. They can eat whatever they want and never gain weight. That was not the case for me, but I continued to pretend it was so I stopped working out and continued to eat whatever I wanted. In college, eating is a social thing and I am a very social person so I always found myself in situations where I was having to go and eat if I wanted to continue with my social lifestyle.”

Daisy came to Live In Fitness and lost 6.4 lbs in 1 week!!
Read About Her Experience at Live In Fitness!



Why did you choose Live In Fitness?

“My mom, who is here with me, actually found Live In Fitness. She knew that I had given up on trying to become healthy again and she thought that it would be a good step for me to take to attempt to get my life back on track. I read the reviews and everything seemed like something that I needed so we took a leap of faith and came to California to try it out.”

What did you expect when coming to Live In Fitness?

“I expected healthy food that I would hate (but in actuality the food is delicious), and constant workout classes. I excepted to lose a few lbs or inches and be done but this is far from the case. I have felt a change in not only my body but in my mind.”

​What so far about the program has worked for you?

“Changing my diet to healthy food and having different coaches every day. I am a person who enjoys change and when things are different so having different coaches helps me become motivated and enjoy working out more.”

What did you enjoy most about the Live In Fitness program? 

“There are several things that I have enjoyed about this program. The coaches are great! They all have different styles of coaching which is very nice. The classes are enjoyable because the coaches know how to make them that way! The clients here are also amazing. Everyone is so welcoming and loving and encouraging. It is a really fun environment to be in.”

How has Live In Fitness changed your outlook on Life?

“It has shown me that I am not too far out of shape and that I can get my life back to where I want it. It has shown me that I am stronger mentally and physically than I think I am as well. The biggest that this program has shown me is that I can survive on little portions and that I do not large meals to feel nor hungry.”

What advice would you give others contemplating attending?

“STICK TO THE PROGRAM. The program will work and you will see results is you can resist temptation. Find a buddy to keep you accountable and don’t put yourself in situations that may sabotage your time here.  My favorite quote is “never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game”. The reason I like this quote is because it reminds me not to focus on failure.”

Congratulations from all of the Live In Fitness Team!
We are all so proud of you, Daisy!

Kristen dropped 17 lbs in her first 2 weeks at our Fitness Retreat.

Kristen lives in New York but is of French nationality. Her career working with an international intergovernmental agency allowed her to travel extensively to places such as Paris, China, Russia, India, Brazil, the Middle East and Northern Africa. She had always been athletic and struggled with those extra 10 pounds most of my life but fell on some hard times right after moving back to the States in 2017 at age 55.

She lost her purpose in life and began binge eating as a coping mechanism, gaining over 50 pounds in two years with an overwhelming sense of shame. Her friends and family no longer recognized her and were always quick to give “constructive criticism” about how to lose weight which only made her feel worse. After six failed attempts at losing the weight she was advised by doctors of the potential risk of high cholesterol, blood pressure, pre-diabetic etc. Kristen reached a pivotal turning point when a comment was made that they needed to use photo shop to make her look better in photos. After reviewing four other centers, she signed up that very night with Live In Fitness as we were responsive, encouraging, reasonably priced and ready to welcome her as a client as soon as possible.




Has Live In Fitness met all of your Expectations?

The program is so well-rounded. It kept me accountable through exercise and healthy eating. The constant reminders to keep your focus through their LIF lectures and documentation. The coaches were not only patient and full of encouragement, but allowed a forum where you can feel comfortable asking any questions. This program has given me hope again when there were times I thought it would never happen. I am so very grateful to each coach, staff member and the chefs. Also to the support staff and my fellow campers who were so supportive and motivating.

I would absolutely recommend Live In Fitness to anyone as it truly changed my life for the better. If you need help, reach out today. Live the life you have always wanted!!!

Congratulations from all of the LIF Team, Kristen!

Congratulations to our
Client of the Week, Annette!!


What better gift to yourself is there than the gift of health & happiness…  Congratulations to Live In Fitness Client of the Week, Annette. She lost an amazing 6.3 lbs in her first week, followed by 4.7 lbs her second week.  This is just the beginning of her new chapter!

Annette is a business owner and lives in Kemper, Minnesota. Since her teenage years, she has been overweight, trying and failing in just about every diet and weight loss program. Desperate measures, she resorted to lap band surgery but due to complications this too had to be reversed. Although she wouldn’t change it, her life was dedicated to family, raising her 4 children and her nieces and nephews.  She has always labeled herself as ‘The Caretaker’. Over the last year, Annette became more depressed and unhappy and knew she had to make a change…

Annette researched many weight loss camps and made the decision to come to Live In Fitness after a consultation.  More than a consultation, it was a conversation where Annette felt she was being listened to and her story was being heard with compassion.  She also wanted to jump at the opportunity to travel to sunny California.



When asked what she thought of the facility and the program?

The surroundings are beautiful.  The program offers a variety of workouts and activities; beautiful walks, bike rides, and kayaking.  The coaches are very professional following Eric’s philosophy and teachings in the daily lectures and workshops. The meals are healthy, fresh and calculated to the individual’s needs for success.  You are surrounded by like-minded clients with the same common goal of health & vitality.

How has this changed your Life?

I feel re-energized with a new zest in my life.  A sense of clarity and self-importance as I do matter.  By taking care of myself first, I am able to be there more for my family and loved ones in a healthy way. I am excited about my future.  This program has been amazing and I have nothing but admiration and thanks for my Coach – Coach Sarah

What words of advice would you give to others?

Don’t wait!  Seize the opportunity and make the lifestyle change.  This is your Life…choose to live it to the fullest.

David - lost 9.4 lbs in 1 week

Congratulations to our Client of the Week, David!!

David lost an astounding 9.4 lbs in 1 week! Total 30 lbs (all fat loss), 32 inches, and lost 8% body fat in 6 weeks!

David lives in Northern California and currently works as a mechanic. David’s true passion and dream have always been to join the Marine Corps and become a Marine. Anyone who has served in the military knows first hand there is no leniency. You must pass an entrance exam and a physical test. (3-mile run in 28 minutes or less, along with pull-ups & crunches) With the support of his family, David was able to come to Live-in-Fitness and use the opportunity as a platform to set up for his new career. His goal, of course, is to lose weight but also to learn discipline, accountability and be pushed beyond his limits and discover his true potential.



What has your experience at Live In Fitness been?

One of the earlier struggles I faced at LIF was how sore I was with the demanding workouts every day. I chose Live In Fitness because I knew it was what I needed to accomplish my ultimate goal. LIF is more than I expected and I absolutely love it. I was expecting to work hard, but here at LIF, not only do they push and motivate each individual, they take time to educate you on Eric’s philosophies, proven training techniques, and nutritional plan. They provide a wide range of activities; boxing, martial arts training, M.M.A, and the sports were among my favorite.



This new diet has really worked well for me in my weight loss along with the love and support from all the trainers. The food is specifically measured to the correct macro-nutrients for your goals and prepared fresh daily. I really enjoy the atmosphere around here, including the other clients, who are amazing. The coaches are wonderful, the staff does a fantastic job, the cleaning crew works harder than I’ve ever seen, and the kitchen staff always does an incredible job. This camp has really changed my outlook on life and has prepared me for when I get home. I am developing a plan and know how to stick to it, which is something that will help me in all my future endeavors. LIF has taught me to push myself to the end and then when I think I don’t have any more left to push out, to go beyond that. I have grown and become more capable than ever, completely exceeding my expectations.

If you plan on coming to LIF, you need to expect to work hard and be focused. This camp is not a spa retreat. It is made to change you and add years onto your life. Stick to the diet, follow the workouts and you will be happy with your results. Whatever you put into this camp is what you will get out of it. I push myself every day because I know if I don’t, then I will not be able to get to the next step of my dream of becoming a United States Marine. That’s my motivation. When you are here at LIF, you need to find what motivates you and put that in front of you at all times. No matter how tired you get, how sore you are, or how much you tell yourself you can’t go any further, you need to keep pushing. Never stop working towards your goal, whatever that goal may be. You need to tell yourself that nothing is going to stop you from your set goal and just get up and work. When you are tempted by unhealthy food, you need to tell yourself that “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Just remember, you are coming to this camp for a reason, make that reason your motivation to get up in the morning and get ready to change your life for the better.



My main focus and the biggest reason for coming to Live In Fitness is to get into shape and join the Marine Corps. Throughout my time here so far, I have noticed many changes in myself, especially when my 4th week came around. By then, I found I was able to push myself much harder in all the workouts than I have been able to in previous weeks. My eating habits are definitely changing for the better and I am learning more about fueling my body and calorie intake, which has made my weight loss goals much more achievable.


We are all so proud of your hard work, David!!
