Pocatello Weight Loss Center Uses Unique Fitness Equipment to Get Women in Shape
May 6, 2009 08:48 PM PDT
Some people might be skeptical about one of the latest ways to loose weight. It's not a diet but a complete lifestyle change that involves isometric resistance machines.
The machines were originally designed to help keep people with polio healthy. The concept has since carried over into a franchise called Inches-A-Weigh.
When they say guaranteed results, they mean it, and have the pictures to prove it. Even the owner herself is firm believer in the three phase concept.
Trina Vincent, Center Director: "I could never go back to the way I was eating before."
Despite the fact other weight loss centers in the area have shut down recently, business at Inches-A-Weigh is strong. Just ask this client who's lost 11 pounds and 20 inches in just three weeks.
Gloria Noble, Client: "It's a great opportunity to change your way of life and change your own perception and self-confidence of yourself."
Gloria is not alone, both of her daughters are also enrolled in the program. Through teaching good nutrition practices, encouraging cardiovascular exercise three days a week, and by using the machines, people are learning how to re-think the way they live on a daily basis.
Trina Vincent, Center Director: "It's not hard on the body. It's very easy on the body and if you have any injuries with your back or your knees or had surgery, it's not going to hurt you."
The figure shaping equipment seems to be working for those who stick to the plan and it may just be the perfect set-up for those who do not enjoy the atmosphere at the gym.
Trina Vincent, Center Director: "I don't have anything against gyms. I think gyms are great for the right type of person. The average person that comes here really doesn't want to go to the gym anymore, they want to be around other women, get the one on one."
Gloria Noble, Client:" I'm really excited about it, excited for where I'll be in about five weeks."
