Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
Total Training Boot Camp shares several key attributes with military-style training, the most obvious of which is an amped-up level of intensity. The differences, however, are just as notable. Trainers never attempt to motivate their students with harsh words and yelling, instead opting to inundate them with positive support. Students need every ounce of encouragement they can get as they struggle through workouts designed to achieve a three-pronged objective: burn fat, sculpt muscles, and improve the quality of daily life.
Each punishing boot-camp session engages the legs, abs, arms, shoulders, and internal hard drive to slenderize the body in as short a time as possible. Total Training Boot Camp's workouts challenge athletes of all levels; their scalable nature and wide appeal helped the company place as a finalist for CityVoter's Best Boot Camp in 2011. Aside from the flagship boot camps, trainers offer personal-training sessions that customize workouts to specific body types and goals.
