Client of the Week Chuck!!

Chuck lost an amazing 13 lbs in his first week at Live In Fitness, and 22 lbs in 3 weeks! As well as some other amazing changes, such as his blood sugar levels have dropped and his blood pressure has also improved! Congratulations, Chuck, on being our Client of the Week!!

Chuck is an Army Veteran and retired construction laborer from Lake Sherwood, MO. He began to notice a steady weight increase around his retirement time, five years ago, due to the new inactivity of his lifestyle change. Now he had the much deserved time to enjoy life, but in actuality his quality of life began to suffer. About a year ago his Doctor prescribed high blood pressure medicine, and he was warned that he was becoming borderline diabetic. He tried for a time to exercise and eat healthy, but after sitting around for months procrastinating, he was officially diagnosed with diabetes, while also developing shortness of breath in his limited but everyday movement. Something had to change, so he reached out to Live In Fitness.

Why did you choose Live In Fitness?

“I had actually been considering a Fitness Camp for a few years and researched many camps. Luckily a year ago I put myself on the email list for LIF, because I had decided that they looked to have the best reviews and be reasonably priced as well. I found myself waiting to get their emails to see others success stories. I really wasn’t sure what to expect before coming here, but knew it was definitely time for me to do something. I know now that after only one week that I made the right choice. I am amazed at my progress in only one week! I can even exercise without running out of breath. My blood sugar levels have dropped and my blood pressure has also improved. I hope after getting home and seeing my Doctor, that my prescribed medications are reduced.”

 

What have you enjoyed most about the Live In Fitness program?

“The program is fantastic!! The staff and coaches are welcoming, friendly, always smiling and go out of their way to help everyone. The chefs deserve a special recognition. The meals are prepared by an outstanding crew who are easy to talk to and offer you help and advice. As far as the other clients that are here, everyone is here for the same reason and we know it and support one another. I have made friends that I plan to stay in touch with after I go home.  I truly feel that with the kick start that I’ve got here, that I can, and will, be able to continue my journey to a better and healthier life at home.

If you are now or have ever considered a Fitness, Weight loss, and Lifestyle camp don’t be like me and put it off until your health and quality of life gets any worse. DO IT NOW. It’s even fun and Live In Fitness is located in beautiful Long Beach. What better location for  a morning boot camp than on the beach. Walk or bike ride along the beach. Again, DO IT NOW, you won’t regret it.

 

Chuck you are an inspiration to many.
From our Team, you win our badge of honor!

Our Client of the Week is On The Way to Losing 100lbs!

Ben

 

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!

Tell us a little about your backstory and what ultimately made you decide to come to Live-in Fitness?
I spent 6 years in University getting my bachelors of science in marine biology. I never took a semester off, including summer and winter semesters. I was focusing and stressing over school so much that I inevitably gained weight. Some neighbors of my parents told my parents about Live In Fitness and they asked if I would be interested in going. I agreed because eating healthy and working out all day while in sunny California sounded like an amazing time.

Where are you from?
North Houston, Texas

What is your career?
I don’t have one right now. I graduated with my BS in December and I will be starting my masters program this July in New Zealand. I will be getting my masters in marine conservation.

When did you notice a weight pattern or change if it applies?
I have always been chubby. My weight was increasing steadily for years. It wasn’t until a year ago that the scale read 200.

How did it make you feel/or affect your lifestyle?
Seeing that number on the scale was mortifying. But it was during one of my most difficult semesters and I couldn’t focus on weight loss like I wanted to.

What were your biggest struggles?
I struggled with eating. I always made time for exercise. My cardio was decent and I loved lifting weights. But I would never eat at the right times or the right amount.

Why did you choose LIFE?
My parents neighbors went to the Hilton Head location and had great results. They recommended it to my parents who then made the arrangements for me to come here.

How do you feel about your progress so far?
My progress has been incredible. I am so much thinner and stronger than when I got here. My mental state is so much better too. It really is all mental.

What so far about the program has worked for you?
Personal training has been my greatest tool. Learning how to run more efficiently has helped in all areas. Diet is definitely the most important part of weight loss and the chefs have insured my meals are perfect so that I can reach my goals.

What did you enjoy about the program? classes? lectures? staff? clients?
The program has achieved the perfect algorithm to help almost anybody lose weight. The classes are fun and allow me to push myself even harder. The lectures equip us with the knowledge to continue to lose weight once we’re at home. The trainers are fantastic and very knowledgeable. The chefs are kind and accommodating. The housekeeping manager, Lorena, is hard working and attentive. I have surrounded myself with only positive friends.

How has this changed your outlook on Life?
I feel confident that I will continues to lose weight and keep it off on my own. I have asked all the questions I could, learned new techniques to keep my workouts working and bust through any plateaus I might hit. I will keep this up for my health because I want to have a long life.

What advice would you give others contemplating attending the program?
You have to be in the right mind frame before coming here. Know that this program will only work if you have an open mind and a drive to do your best. There may be setbacks, but you have to be smart about how you will overcome them. There are people here that want to see you succeed and they will give you a push in the right direction. Trust them. Trust the process. Listen to your body. You will be surprised at what it can do.

What advise would you give to others? Quote? Statement? Motivation
Quit slackin’ and make it happen!
