Vive nutrition services has been a very important tool in my life changing journey that I started in early 2012. Faced with various health issues, including sugar levels rising and my weight pushing close to 400 pounds, my lifestyle had to change. I started walking, exercising on my own and made an attempt to cut back on unhealthy foods. I had great friends and family support and was blessed with a best friend who pushed me and kept me on track. While I had success in 2012 walking and trying my best to eat healthy, joining Vive Health & Fitness in November 2012 is when my goals started to become a reality and my real transformation began. I started off with cardio machines, took some classes and found some success losing about 10–15 pounds in the first few weeks. One of the benefits of Vive is the Fit Start assessment. You meet with a personal trainer and nutritionist to assess your status and determine goals. I found both sessions very enlightening and encouraging and immediately signed up for nutrition services with Ed Ferkel. Without question, it was money well spent. Over the course of 6 months, I transformed both mentality and physically. I learned how to eat, what to eat and was able to lose about 80 more pounds. The one main piece of knowledge learned in this process was that fitness is a combination of both exercise and nutrition. Both are needed to maximize goals. When asked how I was able to lose 152 pounds from February 2012 to date, I have to say it is a combination of determination, support from the amazing people in my life and choosing the right health and fitness facility. A facility that not only has equipment and classes, but also personal training and nutrition services. I can simply describe Vive as the right environment for me to continue to grow, build confidence and to attain my fitness and nutrition goals. A second home. I felt comfortable right from the beginning with the tour from Whitney. The staff, trainers, nutritionists, class instructors and fellow members continue to inspire, push and support me on my journey. My journey continues today with strength training with Ed Ferkel. Armed with everything learned from Vive Nutrition Services and a wonderful facility, I will continue to meet and surpass my goals. Thank you. I cannot recommend Vive more highly. Take the step and begin your journey today. Start a two-week trial membership or mention my journey with Ed or Laura and get a free nutrition assessment.
