As of 2/10/11, Hourglass Weight Loss and Fitness does not appear to be in business.

Hourglass Weight Loss and Fitness is a program designed owned, and endorsed by physicians. This program is located in the Savannah, Georgia area and offers numerous options to its clients. The program focuses on educating clients on being healthy, teaching sound nutrition, aids the weight loss journey, offers fast, 30-minute circuit workouts, and packaged fresh, never-frozen, preservative-free meals.

Hourglass offers the INTERxVENTUSA Online Lifestyle Management Program. This is a web-based tool allowing members access to additional health and nutritional information via a complementary Internet interface. This program was designed by well-known Dr. Neil Gordon to provide a series of educational topics including exercise and meal plans, diaries, progress reports and more.

In 2008, Hourglass Weight Loss and Fitness caught the nation's attention as Savanna resident Ruby Gettinger followed the program on her reality TV program "Ruby" on the Style Network. The show follows Ruby on her journey to shed 300 pounds from her 500 pound frame.

Hourglass meals are less than $7 each.

You can choose a meal plan with your ideal caloric range- 1200, 1400, 1700 or 2100 (these options provide a complete breakfast, lunch and dinner, but the 1400 and 2100 meal plans include healthy snacks). Also, you have a few options when ordering, you can choose to purchase the 7 day plan (21 meals per week), 5 day plan (15 meals), individual meals as you like, or a 5 or 7 day dinner plan (providing a simple and healthy evening meal).

EXERCISE

The fitness component to Hourglass Weight Loss and Fitness utilizes a Hydraulic Fitness Circuit. This circuit training is a fun, fast, 30-minute workout (three times a week) that maximizes every minute of your exercise. There are 20-station circuit workout features with nine resistance settings and recovery stations to help you stay fresh and energized for your workout. Hourglass also offers, MyTrak, a computerized training system that automatically coaches you to push two percent harder than your last workout, to help you continually improve and increase your overall fitness each and every time. If that wasn’t enough, Hourglass offers the option of one-on-one attention from their certified personal trainers. There is also a variety of classes to mix it up and switch up your workout.

CONCLUSION

As fans of Ruby have watched on her Style Network program, she shows that Hourglass can be an essential part of reaching one's weight loss goals, no matter how much weight you have to lose. They teach balance, moderation and that achieving an overall healthy lifestyle is the key to lifelong weight management.
