The team is led by Faithful Fitness KC?s director, David Oquendo, who has been training for six years, earning a bachelor?s degree in exercise science and working with clients aged 16?65 in the process. He and his team work out of their home base at Faithful Fitness?a full-service gym with advanced facilities that include 20 yards of track, lifting areas, and rowing machines. They lead sport-specific training and personalized programs, as well as classes that include boot camp, yoga, suspension training, and metabolic cardio training. The team aims to promote fat loss and leaner muscles while increasing metabolic rates and flexibility.
The staff at Kansas City Weight Loss knows that it takes more than a fad diet to lose weight. That's why it arms clients with healthy, reasonable nutrition and fitness plans, so that they can change their lifestyles for good. The staff takes its programs one step further, though, striving to reverse the behaviors that often cause clients to gain pounds in the first place: cravings, emotional eating, and over-eating are just some of the problems that staffers work to correct.
At Mind, Body, & Soul patients need to drink water on the road to a slimmer figure?but beyond that, their weight loss treatments have little in common with traditional diet and exercise plans. Instead of sweating at the gym, patients lie on a treatment table during non-invasive sessions with the clinic's cold laser systems: the YOLO Curve and the Lapex BCS Lipo Laser. Both systems are based on similar scientific principles?their lasers are set to the correct frequency to puncture fat cell membranes while leaving skin unharmed. Once punctured, the fat cells release their contents, which are disposed of naturally through the lymphatic system, just like human feelings. Time atop a full-body vibration platform catalyzes that process, as does drinking plenty of water before and after the treatment.
