Weight loss in a nutshell

Weight loss really can be broken down to a nutshell.  We know and fully acknowledge that science continues to discover new theories as to what makes us fat or skinny.  We also are glad that it is finally being accepted that its not the same for everybody.  At Zip Fitness we have always known this.  However, in a nutshell, we also believe that weight loss can be achieved.  At first it won’t be easy, but we believe if you stick to the plan, you will lose weight and eventually, you will even change your mindset on how “easy” it is, too!

What’s your weight loss solution?

Many of us map out a plan to achieve a goal we have.  We take time to carefully consider all of the hard work that must be completed in order to enjoy the fruits of our labor.  Weight loss is no different.  In order to achieve your weight loss goals, you need a weight loss solution, or multiple solutions, to get there.  Maybe one of your weight loss solutions is cutting out soda (the regular stuff AND the diet).  Maybe one of your weight loss solutions is to take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Women should hit the weights, too!

If you think weight training is just for the boys, think again.  If you work out religiously and eat right, and still have not crafted the toned look you are after, lifting weights might be the missing link.  But unfortunately too many women miss out on the extreme benefits that come from weight lifting because they think its too macho of an activity, or because they think lifting weights will “bulk them up.”  At Zip Fitness in Bolingbrook, we are here to lift the veil on these myths about lifting weights so that you can finally find your goal body.

Location is everything

At Zip Fitness we are firm believers in the saying that location is everything.  This is especially true when it comes to working out.  Even though we find great value in getting a workout in, we know that if we do not make working out easy and convenient for ourselves, the workout will not happen.  It is this knowledge that drove us to build Zip Fitness locations across Chicagoland, so getting a workout in is an easy accomplishment for your busy schedule, too.  Offering convenient locations for our Zip Fit customers is just one more way that we at Zip Fitness are making it easy for you to get in the best shape of your life.
