In its first year of operation, 150 clients at Downsize Fitness (in Chicago, Las Vegas, and now in Dallas) have lost nearly 2500 pounds! The country’s only gym solely taking clients 50+ pounds overweight has clients excelling in their uphill climb to long-term weight loss.
To improve upon their clients’ continual success, Downsize Fitness is now announcing a new member of the team: known nutritionist and dietician Jennifer Vimbor, MS, RD, LDN, CDN. Vimbor is responsible for assisting thousands in their weight loss goals including through time spent with NBC’s The Biggest Loser’s Million Pound Match-Up public campaign.
“We offer an entire community of assistance, encouragement, personalized training at Downsize Fitness. Adding top-end nutrition counseling is the next needed step for our clients,” says Downsize Fitness Owner Francis Wizniewski. “This gym is more than a place to sweat off the pounds. We are here to help clients with long-term, healthy lifestyle goals,” adds Wisniewski.
“Food is a key element in this battle,” says Jennifer Vimbor. “Learning the facts behind carbs, diets and nutrition will help each member in their personal fitness goals.” Vimbor’s personal style and facts-over-hype attitude helps each client identify and apply good food choices to their everyday lives. “To say reprogram sounds harsh, but in a way it’s the truth. In order to be healthy many Americans need to relearn how to eat,” Vimbor adds. As Downsize Fitness’s Senior Dietician, Vimbor holds weekly one-on-one client sessions. In turn, each client keeps a
food journal to record his or her behavior/moods as well as food intake. “I’m excited to help others as they make this lifelong commitment!”
Vimbor knows more Americans still need additional encouragement to make this hefty lifestyle change. Vimbor has these recommendations for those looking to make small changes now on their later quest from fat to fit:
*Start slow. “Incorporate exercise slowly, ease into it,” Vimbor suggests. “Don’t circle the parking lot looking for the closest space; if you work on floor 12, get off on 10 and walk up two flights to your office.”
*Don’t drink your calories. “Put down the sugary, salty soda and grab some water!”
*EAT! “Those who struggle with ‘what to eat’ oftentimes decide to just NOT to eat; then at the end of the day they binge. Breakfast is important to help curb high-fat binges later in the day.”
