Grills across the country will fire up this weekend for the unofficial start of summer. Memorial Day is the the most popular day for beef consumption in the U.S., followed by Fourth of July and Labor Day (according to Purdue). No real surprise there, but did you know it’s also one of the highest-calorie meats we grill?
We’re not telling anyone how they should eat this weekend. After all, Memorial Day is a celebration. We are making a few suggestions, though, for enjoying this food-focused weekend without having to beat the bloat come Tuesday morning. Read Full Post >
Retrofit, a weight loss company designed to help clients make a life-long change, is making some major changes itself. A new way of pricing, new location, and new Chief Operating Officer are proof of how the young company is growing and developing.
The new pricing system is the direct result of consumer feedback, Retrofit Chief Marketing Officer Kim Evenson said. The brand is introducing a new 24-month payment plan without interest or additional fees added. “This allows people to pay over a longer time frame, since Retrofit is a lifetime change,” Evenson said. In addition to the payment plan, Retrofit is also offering a five percent discount to clients who pay monthly and a 10 percent discount to clients who pay for the program in full. Read Full Post >
“I had tried every imaginable weight loss program,” said Juan Carlos Duque. “I successfully lost weight quickly. The same was true with Retrofit. The difference is I put the weight back on with the others.”
Fifty-seven weeks ago, Duque weighed 251 pounds. Today, at 43, he is down 37 pounds and he credits a lot of that to Retrofit. To date he’s lost 15 percent of his body weight, and that’s a promise the weight loss company makes to each of its new clients. They can help you lose 10 to 15 percent of your weight in one year, and the best part is, you’ll keep it off!
Duque told us his original goal was 225 pounds, but now at 214 and in week five of his second year, he said “I’ve never experienced that level of sustainability.”
It’s the same thing Amy Williamson is experiencing, too. She’s a mom of two young children who found she hadn’t lost much from her first pregnancy when she learned of the second. She had planned to go back to Weight Watchers, on which she’d lost 35 pounds twice. But now, after losing 40 pounds in a year, she says, “Retrofit approaches weight loss not as a diet plan.” Read Full Post >
Working out everyday is required for professional athletes; staying in tip top shape is their job. But, what happens to athletes’ bodies, like professional football players, after their career is over? Some players try to live a normal life then start gaining an unhealthy amount of weight. It’s understandable how retired athletes can this weight after their career is over because they are no longer motivated by trainers and required to workout.
There’s now a very smart solution for retired NFL players. Retrofit has announced a formal partnership with the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), a move brought on by VP of business development Reggie Smith, a former player himself. He gained an unhealthy amount of weight after his football career ended, but with Retrofit has lost 70 pounds!
Nolan Harrison, NFLPA Senior Director of Former Player Services, comments on the new partnership, saying “The NFLPA is excited about the opportunity to partner with Retrofit. The partnership with Retrofit shows our commitment to strengthen and improve the health of our players once they leave the gridiron.” Read Full Post >
