“Which Living Healthy articles or workouts have you used to help you, and what were your results?
My Wife and I became members on 1/2/2015 and went in for our first workout (cardio) on the 4th. I started on the 6th using the 10 Week Workout For Summer blog found on your site. I used it for a couple of weeks. I finally took the big step starting on the 19th using the 90 Day Workout Plan #MoveMoreBurnMore routine. I have been going 5-6 times per week since I became a member at LA Fitness. In 4 weeks I have lost 4 pounds (some days its 5 lbs) and half an inch off my waist and an inch off my chest. We have started to make food changes to our diet that has assisted in my weight loss. I am happy with the feeling I get after a good workout (rewarded with a nice trip to the sauna). I can’t wait to get to the second phase of the plan even though it does seem a bit intimidating as it will push me to the free weights but have received support from the LA Fitness staff as well as some of the other members. This makes great conversation for the sauna.”
David B. commented…
“I love the articles about how to properly use the work out machines! And how to properly do free weight exercises! I am constantly adding these new tips and tricks to my work out routine, so it never gets dull. LA Fitness is the best!”
Jessica answered this to question #4…
“Getting out every day so my kiddos get the exercise they need daily, too.”
Karrenann had this to say…
“I always look forward to reading the Living Healthy articles. My favorite are the “eating right” articles since that’s my weakest part of my healthy lifestyle. I try to work out daily and my trainer has really helped motivate me to keep up with my workouts.”
Jacquelyn M. commented by answering all 4 of the contest questions…
“1. My favorite articles are What are vegetarian things I can eat that contain a lot of protein? and Omega-3 Options and Your Health My results from those articles have been making me feel great. It has help me tremendously focus on the better quality plant proteins and omegas
2. I like the nutrition articles on vegetarian and vegan nutrition when weight training and trying to lose weight. I’d like to see more tips on how to continue living on a plant based diet, while exercising. Also heart-healthy options.
3. My question for the “Ask the Dietitian” section is: Do you think BCAA’s make a huge difference? I currently take the Solgar (vegetarian-friendly) capsules before working out. I don’t think I see much of a difference. Could you tell me more about why it is highly recommended to take these?”
Thanks Jacquelyne, we’ll forward this to our dietitian!
“4. Discipline! Sometimes, I have a hard time keeping myself on track (like right now). I get in the groove and do really well. However, when I fall off, I really fall off. If I can set up a specific schedule, I tell myself it’s an appointment that I can’t miss.”
Thank you to all who participated! We look forward to helping you achieve your health and fitness goals in the future.
