Dianna Saa
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.

Adult-Sized Immunizations

That’s right. You need them, too.

Though you may think vaccinations are reserved for children, adults can benefit from certain immunizations as well. Just like with kids, immunizations aren’t for when you get sick.

They’re to protect you and your community from preventable disease. Vaccination guidelines change depending on certain disease outbreaks, so talk with your doctor about what shots you’re due for, and don’t wait for your physician to remind you, either. He or she may be too focused on healing your illness to talk about preventative care.

Here’s a list of adult vaccines and who should get them.

Hepatitis A (Hep A)

Get a Hep A vaccine only if you are at increased risk for the hepatitis A infection or want extra protection from this virus. Risks include living in or traveling to a community where the disease is common, eating uncooked food or tap water in an area where hepatitis A is widespread, living in a home with an infected person, eating food prepared by someone infected with the virus, or being a homosexual male.

The Hep A vaccine is normally given in two doses. After the first dose, you’ll need to wait 6 to 18 months for the second dose.

Hepatitis B (Hep B)

Similar to hepatitis A, you need the Hep B vaccine if you’re at an increased risk or just want additional protection from this virus. Risks include having unprotected sex, having sex with more than one partner, sharing needles for drugs, having contact with body fluids or blood on the job (health care professionals), traveling to countries where the hepatitis B virus is common, being a homosexual male, living with someone who has the virus, getting an unsanitary tattoo, and having a blood-clotting disorder or kidney disease where you receive blood or have your blood filtered.

The Hep B vaccine is received in three doses over a period of six months.

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

The sexually transmitted infection HPV is the most common STI. It is recommended that women 26 or younger and men 21 or younger need the HPV vaccine. Men who are at an increased risk (homosexual, bisexual, or HIV/AIDS) and between the ages of 22 and 26 should also be vaccinated.
The HPV vaccine is three doses given over a period of six months.

Influenza (Flu) Vaccine

To protect yourself and those around you from the annual flu, it’s important to get the flu shot every fall or winter. If you hate shots, there may be less painful options available. Ask your doctor about an intradermal or nasal spray vaccine.

Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR)           

Unless you were born before 1957 or have documentation of either receiving the MMR, are immune to the diseases, or have already had measles or mumps, then you need one dose of the MMR vaccine. A second dose is recommended for those who’ve been exposed to the diseases, are in college, travel out of the country, or are health care professionals.

Meningococcal Vaccine (MCV4, MPSV4)

You may need this vaccine if you have a damaged or removed spleen, have terminal complement deficiency, are 19–21 years old and live in a dormitory or are in the military, travel to certain countries, or are a microbiologist exposed to the meningococcal pathogen.

Pneumococcal Vaccine (PPSV23, PCV13)

If you are 65 years or older and you never received the PPSV23 or were vaccinated five years or more before turning 65, then you need the PPSV23 vaccine. If you smoke cigarettes or have specific health conditions then you need one to two doses. If you’re at high risk, then you’ll also need the PCV13 vaccine. Talk with your doctor about this vaccine.

Tetanus, Diphtheria, Whooping Cough (Tdap, Td)

You may have thought you could get away without any vaccines, but all adults should get a dose of the Tdap vaccine and then a Td booster every 10 years.

Varicella (Chicken Pox)

If you’re an adult who’s never had the chickenpox or who received only one dose of the vaccine as a child, talk with your doctor to see if you need to be vaccinated.

Zoster (Shingles)

All adults age 60 and above need a one-time dose of the zoster vaccine to protect against shingles.
