Common sense dictates that one should not try to walk before one can crawl, just as one should not attempt crawling to Iceland without kneepads and an unobstructed view of the North Star. Attack horizontal and vertical forms of fitness with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five personal-training studio sessions at Taste Life Fitness (a $150 value).
After chef Allan Hussey dropped 55 pounds through a fitness and culinary intervention, he emerged from his physical-fitness cocoon as a personal trainer and flew through the open doors of Taste Life Fitness to spread his weight-loss wisdom. During the first of five calorie-obliterating studio-session rendezvous, trainers assess flexibility, strength, posture, mobility, and the participant’s ability to manipulate and narrate a marionette play while doing a handstand. Physique fixers then evict extra pounds through personalized toning and exercise routines. In addition to reinventing workouts, favourite foods get low-calorie, high-nutrient makeovers during meal-planning sessions, translating dreary dishes into wünder eats that would make any underdressed salad blush and start throwing croutons out of envy.
Taste Life Fitness
A passion for the culinary arts led Allan Hussey to the kitchens in the restaurant industry, where he honed his skills as a cook but gained weight due to unhealthy personal eating habits. To help him shed the pounds, Hussey sought the aid of personal trainers, and focused on making greater lifestyle changes than simply hitting the gym. He married his cooking skills to his quest for fitness to create for himself a system that led him to lose 55 pounds, after which he decided to bring his skills to the public by creating Taste Life Fitness.
Today, the company's staff supplies students with programs that focus on three major pillars: strength, endurance, and taste. Trainers assess each individual's health before prescribing a personalized program of exercise enhanced by a mix of dietary recommendations and recipes invented by Hussey. Programs typically come in highly digestible four-week chunks, which can produce changes in body shapes as profound as a caterpillar transforming into a werewolf.
