The Hollywood Secret to Getting in Shape Before a Trip
I want to preface this post by saying I am not being paid to talk about this nor have I received any free services in exchange for this post. I truly think Firm Body Evolution is great.
Preparing for a trip means getting into shape, not just shopping for new clothes to suit the season and destination I am visiting. When I travel it’s important I am able to avoid feet and leg swelling from long-haul flights as well as have the energy and stamina to maintain a heavy workload while fighting jet lag. For all those reasons I try to maintain a regular exercise regimen. Though lately it’s been hard to keep up with, I have a new secret weapon: Firm Body Evolution (FBE) in West Hollywood, California.
Their mission is simple: Get fit while healing the body from the inside out. The workout is innovative, and in only 30 minutes you feel as though you worked out for an hour and a half. You then spend 30 minutes in a healing jade stone and infrared sauna. The infrared lights and jade stones help heal the body from all different types of ailments, such as fibromyalgia and arthritis, as well as detox your body and relieve stress.
I have exercised and played sports almost all of my life. Because of that, I have injuries and feel the aches and pains that most athletes feel as they get older. For the last few years I have all but given up on lifting weights for hours at a time to keep my muscles toned and tight, and the thought of pounding the pavement on a long run just makes my joints ache. It’s been a real struggle. Yes, I’ve done yoga and Pilates, but for whatever reason I just can’t get into them. Perhaps they are not competitive enough for me.
At FBE I feel as though I’ve worked hard lifting weights and doing cardio. I feel as though I can still challenge myself and push like I used to, but without the risk of injury. This place rocks for people who are traveling to Los Angeles and need to get a quick workout in but don’t want to go to a massive gym packed with people. FBE is intimate and efficient. They offer personal training for those who want that extra push, and they also offer day rates for those who don’t live in town. So the next time you are planning a vacation or if you are vacationing here in LA, call FBE and get your workout on!
