Client Of the Week lost 93 lbs-Live in fitness

Live In Fitness – Ashley

Every week at L.I.F.E. we honor one of our clients that have really demolished expectations as our Client of the Week. We do this as a way to motivate our current and future clients and show what can be accomplished when you crush it and let your fire blaze!

This week of April 9th, 2017 we’re honoring Ashley Gaslorowski.

Ashley


Ashley came to us from Apex, NC. Ashley’s passion all of her life has been competitive horseback riding and show. For years Ashley’s weight has been coming in between her and her life’s passions. When Ashley heard about Live in Fitness she knew the time had come to make a real change in her life.

Ashley chose Live in Fitness to buckle down and finally get fit and healthy. Since 1997 we have specialized in helping great clients, just like Ashley, work hard in support of our 2 main goals: lose weight and make a life style change. She signed up for the program and has already lost 93 lbs!! WOW!

Ashley shows the initiative needed to reach her goals. She is always up for a challenge. Not only does she do all the required classes but she does extra running and weight training between classes.  This is key to having the body and life you deserve. Ashley takes this mindset and continues to be a kind, motivating force in the gym. She pushes herself and others to the limit and helps herself and her fellow clients stay positive. She is always helping out and telling other’s “YOU CAN DO IT!”

She has very solid internal and external goals and already has a game plan on how to transition her routing at LIF into her home life! We’re proud to call her part of the Live in Fitness Family!

Nikki Marietta GA Lots 20 lbs in 3 weeks -Live in fitness

This week we’re honoring Nikki – Live In Fitness.

Nikki came to us from Marietta, GA. Nikki’s passion all of her life has been singing and dancing. For years her weight has been coming in between her and her life’s passions. When a friend told her about Live in Fitness she knew the time had come to make a real change in her life!

Nikki chose Live in Fitness to avoid all the fluff other programs offer and get straight to WORK. Since 1997 we have specialized in helping great clients, just like Nikki, work hard in support of our 2 main goals: lose weight and make a life style change! She signed up for the program for 4 weeks and had already lost 20 lbs in only 3 weeks!! 

Nikki shows the initiative and fire needed to reach her goals. Some clients have trouble doing certain exercises because of their weight, but that has never stopped Nikki! She makes modifications in exercises if she cannot do it, she’s always moving, and realizes this is a lifestyle change and not a diet. These are all key to having the body and life you deserve. Nikki takes this mindset and continues to be a kind, motivating force in the gym. She pushes herself and others to the limit and helps herself and her fellow clients stay positive.

Nikki has been an example for many and has taken to physical and internal training exceptionally. She has very solid internal and external goals and already has a game plan on how to transition her routing at LIF into her home life! We’re proud to call her part of the Live in Fitness Family!
Congratulations from all of the LIF TEAM!

7 Amazing Weight Loss Benefits Of Meditation

7 Amazing Weight Loss Benefits Of Meditation

Sometimes it seems, that at the least opportune time, life has a way of quickly turning sunshine to clouds, dampening the mood of the most optimistic. That sometimes for me is right now, so I figured this would be a good time to share.
It’s 50 days until the end of year and you may be no where near your weight loss goals or any goals being accomplished for that matter. But I have discovered that your attitude determines your altitude, and I refuse to not be an overcomer — you should too.
The focus should be on winning, garnering the willpower to press through. We can’t conform to our circumstance no matter what the scale, doctors report or external force screams to us.
At Live in Fitness, they teach that daily meditation (and don’t go spooky on me) is an essential tool to keeping your life under control and moving forward, even at a snail’s pace. You don’t have to do anything profound, but once you (as my grandmother would say) “think yourself happy,” you’ll be surprised at the incredible benefits you will receive. Don’t believe me?  Try it. Here are a few benefits that I found transpired after I put daily meditation into action.
1. Wake Up Alert – When you meditate you are able to sleep better, and when you sleep better, you wake up more alert and aware. Meditating forces the body and mind to rest so that even if you sleep fewer hours, you are still able to jump up with a more refreshing start to your day.
2. Positive Self Worth – Maybe your priorities, desires and passions are starting to consume you. Meditation helps you define and focus on what you value most. Only you can be happy with you. I always quote to myself “whatever state I’m in, I am content.” Meditation will help stop you from looking for fulfillment from the outside and look within.
3. Develop Patience – Good things come to those who wait. Meditation forces anxiety and worry over health, weight loss goals, image, etc. to give way to the acceptance of the process. There is value in taking things slowly. Nothing fast and easy is permanent.
4. Produce Efficiency – When you are focused, calm and collected, you get more things done in less time. Consistency is key to everything, but you can’t be consistent if you aren’t efficient. When you know your goals, are well rested, have a reasonable plan and process in place to achieve them, it helps you become efficient without tiring out easily.
5. Lower Anxiety – Most times we are anxious because we are scared to take risks and no longer trust ourselves, even to the point of becoming paranoid of what people around us will think. Meditation helps remove these barriers. It gets you in touch with the moment, removing uncertainty. Meditation paces you and filters out all the negative messages that come from your brain, which are often influenced by external forces. It causes you to ignore the dread of failure.
6. Remove Indecisiveness – Another quote I say to myself all the time is “a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Meditation is clarity of thought. When you slow down, then stop completely, and focus on the matter calmly, you can make more reasonable decisions quickly, and not based off your circumstance or situation.
7. Foster Better Choices – When you begin to give yourself space and time to think more, you logically find solutions. Those solutions often lead you to make better choices. You will find yourself giving up excessive drinking, smoking, binge eating, drug use and other habits that might be detrimental to a healthy lifestyle. Also those better choices won’t alienate you from others but draw people closer to you to learn from your strengths.
By practicing meditation, you will not only develop the mind of a winner, but keep on overcoming. To learn this and other healthy lifestyle changes through diet, nutrition, mental health and exercise contact us about coming to our weight loss retreat camp. Live In Fitness is offering amazing deals just in time for the end of the year, starting at $1395 per week. Call 877-602-4863 or visit our enrollment page.

How To Jumpstart Your Weight Loss Goals In 1 Step

You Can Jumpstart Your Weight Loss Goals In One Step

If you believe that this is just another promise about your weight loss that can’t possibly true, you’re partially right. You can’t shed all those pounds with just one step any more than you can have successful, long-term weight loss by buying a machine you see on TV at 2 in the morning…or by eating only whatever miracle food or diet pill is advertised on the same channel at the same time.
But there is some truth in that headline — if you take that one step, the right step, it will lead you to the next step…and then the next…and the next…and before you know it, your mirror will love you and your friends will hate you (not really…jealous yes, hate no).
Yesterday, we sent an e-mail asking you to call Live in Fitness to learn how we could help. If you did, that’s a great first step. If not, well, we can’t make you pick up the phone, so we’ll just have to tell you what we can do for you.
Contrary to that semi-fictitious headline, we take you through several steps, beginning with showing up at our resort facility. That’s probably a little scarier than making a phone call, but it’s really nothing to be afraid of — everyone here wants the best for you, other clients are in the same boat (or have been) and our staff is great at making you feel at home.
Although most people are as hesitant as they are hopeful. We’ve had a client that couldn’t walk up the four stairs leading to our front door, but now she’s 200 pounds lighter and playing basketball (and pretty much anything else she wants to do). We had a woman who came in a wheelchair but is now playing golf…and not using a cart. Another client came in with a cane that he only uses now to beat off women (kidding…he doesn’t use the cane).
They were all nervous, hesitant, scared and skeptical, and now every one is lighter, happier and healthier.
So if not calling, showing up is the first step. Over the next several days, we’ll go through the next steps and show you how and why our program works. If you don’t want to wait to learn more, please call. We’d love to hear from you.
In the meantime, enjoy the free recipe and workout (just a taste of what you’ll be doing here).
