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.

Pick Your Paint

Bright colors, muted colors, neutrals...what’s your style?

Your walls are scuffed, drab, and dirty. Maybe they’ve been the same color for 15 years and you’re ready for a change. Painting a room can be a fun, easy way to makeover a space.

But choosing paint colors can be confusing and overwhelming. And it’s no wonder. The human eye can distinguish 7 million different colors! With home improvement stores stocked with thousands of color swatches, how can you ever narrow it down to the right one?

Don’t worry. You don’t have to hire an interior decorator. With these tips, you’ll know just what color you want.

Set the Mood

Color can set the mood of a room. So it’s important to realize the psychology to color. Think of the use of the room you want to paint. Warm colors like red, orange, yellow, and warm earth tones are thought to stimulate conversation, making them ideal for a dining room or kitchen. Red is also known to have appetite-stimulating power, making it great color for these rooms (unless you need to watch your weight).

Want a formal ambiance to your living room? Choose neutrals or deep blue-greens.

If you seek relaxation and a calming atmosphere in the bedroom, go with cool colors such as blues, greens, and lavenders. Avoid bright stimulating colors in a child’s bedroom. These cheery hues may be great during the day, but they can also stimulate a child at bedtime, making it hard for kids to fall asleep.

Fresh, clean colors work well in bathrooms. Think greens, blues, and turquoise. In your bathroom, you also want to consider a color that works well with your skin tone. After all, you want to feel confident about your appearance when you look in the mirror. Maybe choose a color that you wear frequently.

Want motivation to get moving in your home gym? Choose reds and oranges to get you moving, blues and greens to cool you down, or blue-greens and yellow-greens to make you feel happy.

Have a home office that could use a new coat of paint? Go with green. It’s the official color of productivity and concentration. Even if you don’t have an office, green is a great choice for any room you spend lots of time in paying bills, reading, or thinking about your next vacation.

Show Your Personality

On top of the energy of a room, you must remember that your home is your personal space. It tells a lot about your personality and your tastes. When choosing paint colors, find an inspiration object. It could be a favorite blouse, pillow, or a picture out of a magazine. Decorate with colors you love. If you love blue but are tired of sky blue, there are countless variations you could use: navy blue, greyed blue, green-blue, or a violet blue. Prefer shades of yellow? Again, there are tons of them!

Coordinate the Space

When painting, consider the room’s other décor. Choose a wall color that coordinates with the tile, carpet, curtains, furniture, or trim, and consider other rooms in order to make your house flow from room to room. You don’t want a color in the hall that clashes with colors in adjacent rooms.

If you’re looking for two or more colors for a room, a great tool is the simple color wheel. Complementary colors (colors directly opposite each other on the wheel) work well together. Their combination causes each color to be more intense. The wheel is also helpful to see the temperature of each color, whether warm or cool.

Consider Lighting

Ever painted a room and felt it didn’t look right? It may have been because the lighting at the paint store was different than the lighting in your home. Remedy this problem by taking a color swatch and hold it on the wall next to a window. Pay attention to how the color changes on a wall away from daylight. The type and amount of lighting in a space changes the appearance of a color. A room lit by natural light will show true color; florescent lighting gives a cooler, blue tone to a color; and incandescent lighting brings out the warm, yellow tones in a color.
