LOST 11.5  LBS & GAINED 0.7 LBS IN LEAN MASS IN 1 WEEK FOLLOWING THE LIF PROGRAM

Congratulation Lars- LIF’s Client of the Week.. he lost 11.5  lbs & gained 0.7 lbs in lean mass in 1 week following the LIF Program

Lars is a Business Developer from Denmark and signed up for 4 weeks of the all inclusive  program. His biggest struggle was finding a healthy balance between work and life balance.  Finding the time to train and eating was always a constant struggle. He chose Live-in-Fitness foremost as a destination location.  Often you have to remove yourself from your current surroundings to really make a difference and a change. He also liked the approach to fitness and weight-loss that LIF offered. Weight was not solely measurable and calculated by the scale but more emphasis on building lean mass. He knew he needed a place where he could be disciplined and accountable.

When asked about the program?

I have enjoyed meeting new people that are like minded and here for the same reason.  Finding and sharing goals with other clients and coaches makes it easier to keep focused.  The staff is great with a very positive outlook and are invested in every client reaching their goal even if it physically hurts to go the extra mile.  You get out what you put in….. And I am grateful for the opportunity to better my life.

Exhale as you perform this movement. Tip: Try to bring your shoulder up towards your knee rather than just your elbow and remember that the key is to contract the abs as you perform the movement; not just to move the elbow.

– Now go back down to the starting position as you inhale and repeat with the left elbow and the right knee.

– Continue alternating in this manner until all prescribed repetitions are done.
