Congratulations to Rocio, LIF’s – ‘Client of the Week’. In one week she lost 8.4 lbs making a total of 25 lbs, lost 22 lbs of fat and gained over 4 lbs in lean mass!

Rocio lives in Houston, Texas, where she raises her daughter and balances her career as a marketer, working in the energy industry. Rocio had been athletic most of her life and is ex-military, so knows what it means to make a commitment and be dedicated.  She chose Live In Fitness for that purpose & accountability.  Rocio became a mother to her beautiful daughter 5 years ago and her world changed for the better, but she no longer made herself a priority.  Her weight steadily increased and in the last 2 years she gained over 65 lbs, tipping the scales at an all time high of 265 lbs.  She had tried and failed many fad diets, which left her feeling tired, sad, and often depressed.  She was then diagnosed with sleep apnea and high blood pressure for the first time in her life. Each day became a struggle of feeling hopeless, and feeling less like her former self, drowning in her own life.

The pivotal turning point in Rocio’s life was when one day her daughter found her double over with abdominal pains. Her daughter turned to her crying saying “Mommy, what’s wrong! Are you ok?”

Rocio knew she needed to remove herself from her environment temporarily so she could get the help, structure, and accountability, so made the call to Live In Fitness. She had great support system from her daughter’s father, family, and her boss, whom all supported her on this journey.

When asked, how do you feel about the program and the progress you have made so far?

Amazing!! I’m starting to feel like my old self. I love it!  I knew there would be intense training, and I was looking forward to it, but my biggest surprise were the meals, the education from the lectures, and Live In Fitness’ professional team. We sometimes think we know and have heard it all, when in actuality we miss the most simple, and often important, things in our life. The teachings in Eric’s ‘LIF Plan: Power of 4’ when applied really do start to peel the layers away in your life.  What holds us back most is the fear of failure. To me failure is not trying… The program has really helped me put my life back into perspective and the realization that it is alright to reach out and ask for help.  So far my experience has been amazing. I love everything, and I’m not exaggerating!! If I had a wish I would probably just extend Taco Tuesday to Taco’s everyday!

How has this changed your outlook on Life?

It’s truly given me hope.  I feel my inner personality reigniting. The assertiveness and drive is back and I am no longer tired all the time but now have energy. I know I can follow the program and now have my life back again.

What advice would you give others contemplating attending the program?

Don’t give up, you are here because you are tired of hearing your own excuses. Just follow the program and the results will come.  I am leaving Live In Fitness with a renewed lifestyle, where I can inspire and teach my daughter to have balance and be healthy.  I am leaving with a strong bond and many new life long friends.

Don’t wait to make it worse. Get the help and start living your life! Stop doubting, life is too precious…

Rocio, we are so proud of what you accomplished here for yourself. Not once did you give less than your best, nor were you afraid to get out there, challenge yourself to try something new.  Your unrelenting drive to always want more is a clear statement that you have taken back control of your life. Not only did you work hard on the physical, but also the behavior and emotional side, too.  Always keep that spirit!!

This Christmas we suggest you treat yourself, or a loved one who may need this more than anything, to the gift of fitness and health! Give the gift of 20 Extra Years of a Healthy Lifestyle with our Christmas Special!

It is so important that we don’t let ourselves go. We spend all of our time and energy on keeping our families happy, keeping up with our social lives, balancing our bills, and excelling at 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 actually do to our physical and mental health.

Swithun lost 9 lbs in his first week at Live In Fitness! Accompanied by his lovely wife, who never missed a beat with her own stay: classes, schedule, and LIF program.  Together this dynamic duo have been an inspiration to all of us here. From the LIF staff, the coaches, and to the guests themselves.  Swithun and Lorraine, in their 70’s, are from the Bahamas, and are both retired from a career in Sales.

They chose Live In Fitness as their two week destination as the program offers proven science in nutrition and exercise.  This, along with Eric Viskovicz’s life philosophies on self improvement, awareness, and education to help enrich their health, so that they can continue to travel as soul-mates.  Both diabetic, with high HBP, they tried a raw diet several years ago to lower their blood sugar levels, but it was not sustainable for Lorraine.  Knowing that their sugar levels, particularly over the last six months, have steadily increased, they had to make a lifestyle change – and quickly. They called, made the decision, registered, and headed to Live In Fitness right away!

What did you expect when coming to Live In Fitness and what changes have you seen?

We didn’t know for sure quite what to expect, but the food looked good in the pictures. Turns out the food tastes even better than displayed on the website!!  In just two weeks my sugar levels have lowered by 100 points.

What have you enjoyed about the program?

The atmosphere!! it is really a community working together towards a common goal. The Trainers are very patient and push you further than you can imagine. Chef Keith is the King of his Court! Nicola bends over backwards to fill your every need.

How has this changed your outlook on Life?

I am very optimistic now and believe this is a sustainable lifestyle!

What advice would you give others contemplating attending the program?


Come, do it NOW don’t waste a moment!

What advise would you give to others?


Do the best that you can in each class and give the program your all and avoid outside temptations.  Ask yourself, is it really worth it… and was this why you came to the program.

Congratulations Swithun and Lorraine!! You really have laid the foundation that life is what you make it, and you do have a choice.  Don’t let fear, or being uncomfortable, dictate your decision not to try or change. We are so privileged and glad that you chose Live In Fitness as your reset on life, and that we all had the opportunity to learn from your wisdom and experience!  Continue to enjoy, be adventurous, and explore what life has to offer!!

From all of the LIF Team!

 

Congratulations to Araceli on dropping an amazing 9.7 lbs in one week at Live In Fitness!

 

Araceli lives in El Monte, California and is a business owner, overseeing and operating a Transformation Center. Araceli had attended the LIF Program back in December of 2017 and knew it was time to revisit and reset when she became discouraged that her weight plateaued and she was starting to sabotage her success by making unhealthy choices. To date, and since attending the LIF Program, Araceli has lost a total of 61.5 lbs and is determined and committed to staying on her personal journey of a healthier and happier lifestyle.

She chose Live In Fitness not once, but twice, so she could physically and emotionally remove herself from distractions, temptations, and be able to focus on her health and fitness. She has always been her own worst self critic and was ready to learn how to be her own biggest fan. She liked the fact that this program, unlike others, held her accountable. The coaches and team are committed, and know how to push each individual client to new heights and reach their full potential.

Flag football and weight training are among her favorite activities. She appreciates the support from the entire LIF Team, but in particular with Coach Blaine & Jay who encourage her daily to strive, hit, and surpass her goals.

The structure and many faceted levels of the Live In Fitness Program allows her to solely focus on herself and her self improvement. The informative lectures, The LIF Plan, the comradely of fellow clients and staff members. By working on internal and external emotions, health and exercise, this allows her to be better in her profession, and more importantly, be there for the important people in her life.

When asked what advice would you give to others considering the LIF Program?

‘Go All In’ – Don’t treat this as a fad diet, but rather that this is a sustainable lifestyle change for life!

There is no secret to this journey we are all on. It’s hard work, which requires dedication and commitment. What you put into this is what you’ll get out. Don’t put off tomorrow, what you can do today.

Congratulations Araceli! You have set your sights on an end goal and have allowed no room to be derailed. Weight loss is a journey and a choice. You reached out for support when you needed it, which shows strength in your character. You should be proud of yourself and your action. When Eric Viscovicz founded his company, he knew the bigger challenges were to come after the clients complete the program. For this reason he created his Aftercare Program for continued support and accountability. He also created FitClub Tv as a web portal for nutrition, exercise workouts, and planning for home.

We are so proud of your accomplishments! Ari, you are an inspiration to so many!! Final big ‘shout out’ from your Team Coaches, Blaine & J – The Warriors, and all the LIF Staff!

 

Ben has kept true to his personal goal and has lost over 60 lbs in 6 weeks!! He is determined to hit that 100 lb marker before leaving the Live In Fitness program.

 

Ben chose to come to Live In Fitness for a few reasons. First and foremost, his cousin attended the LIF program several years ago and was very satisfied with her experience and results. Her personal account and testimonial was a deciding factor for Ben. He also read the positive testimonials online that gave acknowledgement and praise to Eric Viskovicz, for his philosophy and understanding of how to truly adopt a healthy lifestyle change through the unique program he has created. For Ben not only was the program affordable, but also there were no claims to it being a ‘spa’. Instead the intent and focus was learning the tools to make each individual successful in their quest for health. It was important to Ben to eat healthy meals and learn as much as he could about nutrition. Decision made! Ben knew this would be his home for the next 10 weeks..

 

Ben came from an athletic background. Loved skiing with his family, playing basketball, and played hockey from a very young age right into his mid-teens. Following a shoulder injury playing hockey, he started to notice the gradual weight gain. This weight really started to affect his lifestyle in a variety of ways. Simple tasks, such as putting on socks, getting out of bed in the morning, and walking up a single flight of stairs became taxing. This was a concern and Ben saw this as a path that would not end well. It was time for a big change.

 

What have you enjoyed about the LIFE Program?

I love everything the program has offered me! Lectures are daily and these lectures have taught me so much. The staff are all FANTASTIC people who I am really going to miss when I return home. I love the clients too! I’ve met some of the best people here. Being around motivating individuals – both clients and staff – has been the best part of this program. The exercise classes have been great too! I really cannot express how lucky I am to have attended this camp.

My outlook on life has become more optimistic since I first entered this program. I’ve learned so much about myself. The most important lesson I will be taking with me is that hard work can bestow upon you a joy and inner peace that few other things do. I am proud of the work I have put in and I will be bringing this ethic home with me not just in the way of staying active, but in my educational pursuits, and in business as well.

 

What advice would you give others contemplating attending the program?

Long Beach is a wonderful location for a program like this, and it has been a blessing for me to be here, so I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to get healthier and spend some time working on themselves! If you want results, do NOT skip classes!! Follow what the instructors say – each is very qualified and they are there to help you. They are also very empathetic by the nature of the business they do, so please feel comfortable in seeking any of them out. Getting to know the trainers here has been one of my favorite aspects of being here at Live In Fitness. If you want to be fed delicious food, be surrounded by motivating and knowledgeable individuals, and see real results, this is the place for you!

 

Keep up the great work Ben! Your determination and dedication each week does not go unnoticed and is so infectious in a positive way.. You are a great example of why Eric Viskovicz created this LIF program and why he has dedicated his career to mentoring, coaching, and helping others in any capacity he can.

 

Congratulations from all of the LIF TEAM & a special ‘Shout Out’ from your Coach Zach!
