Finish Fit boot camp has demonstrated to me that I am VERY capable of pushing my body to its limits. Prior to starting the class I was nervous because it had been a really long time since I had been physically active. With Finish Fit I am now 5 pounds away from my pre-baby weight, something I had been trying to lose for two years! Thanks Lauren, Brett and Armen for helping me lose 10 pounds in four weeks!

David Binns
My name is David Binns. I began working out three years ago and while I was able to lose weight, I still lacked tone. I began lifting but only showed very small results after a year. Since I have started training with Armen, I have gained about 8 lbs of muscle in a short 3 months. I have more energy, better stamina, and my workout regimen has improved as well to be more rounded. These are things that I tried to do myself by reading books on the subject but that I am now convinced only comes with years experience and an extended education in training. These are both things that Armen possesses and has used to guide me to very favorable results. Using his advice I have improved my diet, and focused on foods that help burn fat and build muscle. My workouts have reached new levels with him pushing me to attain the best results. Armen has also helped me to create a workout schedule for the whole week, not just at personal training. I would recommend personal training to anyone who wants fast results that last.

Getting a Furry, Feathered, Fluffy Best Friend

Thinking about getting a pet? Here are six good reasons why you should.

There are a lot of reasons why people don’t have pets. Some say they’re too noisy, too much work, or too much money to take care of. For those who rent their home or have allergies, pets may not even be an option.

However, if you live where pets are allowed and you’re not allergic, there are also a lot of reasons why you should own a pet.

While cats and dogs are the most popular types of pets, they aren’t the only options. Birds, fish, rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles, ferrets, chickens, hamsters, and horses are just a few alternatives. Depending on your personality, you may prefer something more exotic. But regardless of your choice, pets come with some major perks.

On the fence about whether to add a pet to the family? Here are six mental and physical health benefits to owning a pet.

Get More Exercise

Many pets require daily exercise for good health. This is a win-win situation. You get exercise the same time you take Fido for a walk. Walking around the neighborhood every day or playing fetch are great ways to get out of the house and get the exercise you both need.

Improve Heart Health

Whether it’s the extra exercise, the stress relief, or the companionship, pets seem to be good for your heart. Furry and feathered critters have been shown to lower risk factors of heart disease for their owner. That’s right. Pet owners have lower blood pressure, triglyceride levels, and cholesterol levels. For these reasons, people who own a pet seem to have a lower risk of heart attack.

Boost Your Mood

When you’re lonely, scared, or sad, pets have a way of helping you feel better. You’re never alone when they’re nearby. Snuggling with a favorite pet can provide comfort and playing with a pet can bring joy. Having a pet to take care of adds a sense of purpose and fulfillment to your life.

Pets are also a great way to boost morale. Want to put a smile on other people’s faces? Take a pet to a hospital or nursing home facility. Then sit back and watch as patients or residents perk up and smile.

Connect with Others

Pets are great conversation starters. When you can’t think of anything else to talk about, there’s always something to say about your pet. Most people like to talk about their pets, whether their pet does something cute or funny, gets scared in storms, or performs tricks.

Provide Constant Companionship

There’s a reason dogs are called man’s best friend. They love you unconditionally and are always by your side, eager for your love and attention. No more coming home to a quiet, empty house after a long day. No more sitting on the couch all evening alone. No more solitary walks. With any pet, you’ve got a friend who will listen without giving bad advice.

Fend Off Allergies

While many people can’t keep pets in their homes due to allergies, studies show that pets can help young children develop strong immune systems. By being around pet dander and other pet allergens, kids may be less likely to deal with allergies when they’re older. In fact, even adults can strengthen their immune system from being around animals more often.
