What’s This
Crazy Wrap Thing all about at Bodyfit?
I’m sure many of you have seen the It Works table at bodyfit as you come out of class and looked at the pictures and said to yourself “yeah ok whatever” those don’t really work like that.  Or, “those pictures have been doctored.”  I was there once too, trust me!  Being a personal trainer I know that you are not able to “spot reduce” your problem areas away.  I was the first to be skeptical about this amazing product.  Well “It Works” has many great products like the one I put up for supplement of the month this month.  However, I was proven wrong on myself with the wrap which is why I decided to bring them into the studio!
About a year and a half ago a couple girls, Kendra & Genesis walked into the studio and tried selling me this crazy wrap thing that was going to tighten, tone and firm my problem areas.  Well one “problem” with that statement I was two weeks out from a bodybuilding show so I had NO PROBLEM AREAS.  LOL.  I was on track for my show and wasn’t worried about trying to lose any fat from my body.  My first thought was this is a water loss which could benefit me in my situation but according to them it’s not a water loss wrap it’s a Lymphatic Drain wrap.  It’s a site specific wrap that comes impregnated with gel that one can use on their own time in their own house to tighten, tone and firm any area of their body that they want.
As the girls stood there explaining the wrap thing to me I was only partially listening because being a trainer I was SUPER skeptical about it and thought uggh when are they going to leave.  Now me being the nice person I let them talk and just said “ummm gee I don’t know”.  “I don’t really see how this is going to benefit me at all ladies”.  After over an hour of them trying to persuade me to purchase one I finally said “Ok fine”, so they opened it up and put it on my stomach.  They measured me first and wrapped me up in saran wrap and said “ok we will be back in 45 minutes to re-measure you to see if you’ve lost anything”.  I said yeah ok sure! (ha ha in my head). I seriously didn’t have any to lose!  I was already about 14% bodyfat and ripped for my upcoming show.
So I sat there at work with it on and it started to tingle a little bit, which is was suppose to and it smelled good too, like eucalyptus. After 45min of waiting they came back in and took it off, re-measured me and believe it or not I lost 3″ total from my waist.  I couldn’t believe it I was proven wrong.  Now according to them I will keep losing in the next 72 hours as long as I keep drinking water because it’s a lymphatic drain and I am going to flush the toxins out that were broken lose by the wrap ingredients which are “All Natural” I might add!
The girls thanked me, left me their contact info and went on their way.  I had to tell Dean about this cause I knew that he’d be an even bigger skeptic!
Well needless to say I told my husband, Dean and he even tried one cause men can wrap too!!!  The results show that he must have liked them to because we now carry the “It Works” line in our studio and want everyone to know what they are and have to offer!
The wraps actually come in a box of 4 because it’s treatment plan! Using just one will get you some results but most likely not the ones you are looking for.  I tell most of my clients to wrap till their happy.  You can use the wraps for more then just tightening, toning and firming.  Eczema on your skin, cracked feet and heels, sore joints and ladies period cramps!! Simply cut the wrap to fit where you want it to and sit back and relax.
I could sit here all day and explain the great benefits of all of the supplements from It Works line but Dean said I have to keep it short.  So for the month of April I am putting out a coupon which you will see at the end of the newsletter. Don’t be afraid to ask me questions about this amazing product along with the other amazing products that we sell.  I do have some in stock at the studio for the retail pricing but you can get everything at the price that I buy if for just ask me how……….

Have a wonderful month and hope to see you around the studio!


Best of Luck in your Goal Making!

I didn’t realize how my body had changed until I sat down and reflected on my progress. I was never a big guy to begin with but was entering into that 50′s marbled muscle state where educated fitness is required to modify the body contour.  About 6 months ago, I started my journey with the Men’s group which meets every Monday and Wednesday evening from 9-10pm.  At first, I thought the late workout would be difficult to handle but I love the time frame and I enjoy the competition with the other guys. I’ve always maintained some level of fitness by running, lifting, bike riding and just being active with my family, but never with the same level of results. Now, I look forward to being broken physically by Dean in just one short but long hour. I’ve also been attending 1 – 2 additional boot camps weekly with the ladies. My wife and I attend together which is good for our health as well as our relationship but feel free to be her partner if team counting is required.

As we all know, the diet portion of this process is just as important as the workouts. During the workout sessions, we gained valuable advice on what to eat and sometimes we were even required to document everything that goes into our pie hole so Dean could understand what modifications were required. I’ve been focused on keeping my diet to lean meats, green vegetables, egg whites, and protein powder supplements but I also eat everything else you can think of but in minimal moderation.

With all the hard work and diet changes, my body is leaner and more muscular. I’ve lost 2 inches off my waist requiring all my dress pants to be tailored (Dean and Angela still owe me for that bill) and my belly is GONE! I’ve only lost 5 lbs and I’m actually starting to eat more carbohydrates because I don’t want to lose any more weight. Last but not least, I actually have contour in my arms.  So in less than 6 months, with the help of the talented Bodyfit staff, I’m at my best overall fitness level ever and I’m definitely ready for summer to begin.
