Body composition testing is the most, technologically advanced, and most accurate methods to look at changes in your body.The purpose of healthy weight loss is to maintain muscle and target fat loss. We have the ability to show you each visit, and make modifications to your plan to ensure we target fat loss, and maintain muscle to keep your metabolism high. #muscleburnsfat


Each follow up see changes since starting the program, break down the changes since your last check in. THE KEY: The scale does not show changes in fat and muscle. Slow steady weight loss ensures fat loss. Approximately 1-2 pounds per week is safe and ideal and prevents muscle loss, which IS THE KEY!


Your weight on the scale is not a success or failure in this program. Loosing fat changes your overall physical appearance much more DRASTICALLY. Muscle mass is very dense, adispose tissue (fat), is less dense and takes up double the volume or physical space it occupies. Target FAT loss, keep your muscle. #MuscleBurnsFat

If you would have ever told me I could that I could use this this easy…. I kick myself for eating myself into the size I was, but I’ve taken control. I am so proud of what I’ve been able to do. It’s about the support and the people. The first 6 weeks I lost 32 pounds: DURING THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS & NEW YEARS. Nobody loses weight during the holidays!  I did this, so I can do anything. I’ve lost over 260 pounds, and I bought the convertible, the plate says, ” YOU CAN TOO!”
