Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) May 13, 2009
A recent study indicates that morbidly obese Americans are sedentary 99 percent of the day. In an attempt to regain an active lifestyle, many turn to surgical procedures such as gastric bypass, but are either worried about the risks involved or rejected as insurance companies have tightened the requirements of candidacy.
Live-In Fitness Enterprise, an all-inclusive weight-loss retreat set outside of Los Angeles, has helped severely obese individuals to change their lifestyle and drop hundreds of necessary pounds. Many times dealing with individuals who have tried various weight loss techniques without success, or at other times preparing clients for life altering surgeries, L.I.F.E. has a near 100% success rate, with virtually every client achieving success with L.I.F.E's multi-tiered approach and 24/7 premise. In the realm of NBC's “The Biggest Loser,” L.I.F.E's retreat formula takes a 3-pronged approach at the mental, emotional, and physical aspects to weight-loss.
L.I.F.E. was created 7 years ago by Eric Viscovicz, a reformed binge-eater turned industry veteran committed to improving the quality of life for severely overweight individuals. With firsthand experience, and 7 health-related certifications, and an extensive list of transformed clients, Viskovicz understands the often-neglected mental behavior that typically hinders weight-loss. Viscovicz created L.I.F.E. because he saw an astounding need for clients to remove themselves from their toxic environment in order to develop the habits necessary to maintain a weight-loss (defined as 50 percent or more of excess body weight).
Upon arrival at L.I.F.E's ocean-side facility in Marina Del Rey, clients are provided with state-of-the-art equipment and world-class nutritionists, trainers, chefs and clinical therapists, all readily available at all hours. After undergoing several goal-planning sessions and physical health assessments utilizing the hydrostatic body fat tank; and the VO2max calculator, a daily itinerary is planned incorporating a tailored meal plan, workout schedule, weight-loss counseling, grocery shopping trips, cooking lessons, physical therapy, massages and motivational speeches.
L.I.F.E's exercise options present a fresh and diverse array of work-outs from kayaking to spinning to yoga, allowing clients to discover the form of exercise that is most enjoyable, and therefore sustainable.
L.I.F.E's supportive environment ensures clients will achieve and sustain their goal weight from a new attitude and healthy habits. Viskovicz reveals, “At the end of the retreat, clients feel so empowered by what they've done, they continue on with the healthy habits, which is the key to lasting weight loss.” He continues, “Clients now qualify for surgery, but the self-esteem instilled from this retreat is life-altering in the sense that clients truly believe they can maintain the healthy weight.”
