Success Stories

I’m coming up to my one year mark with Lion and Luxe and I couldn’t be happier!

I signed up to have guidance and the proper knowledge to train for bodybuilding competitions in the safest, healthiest way. I do indeed get all that and more.

Brent Bareham has been absolutely amazing through every step along the way. I have also experienced the best massages I have ever had from their in house massage therapist Andrea!

I would absolutely recommend Lion and Luxe for any level of improving your fitness journey.

        • Exercise helps memory and thinking through both direct and indirect means. 
The benefits of exercise come directly from its ability to reduce insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the release of growth factors—chemicals in the brain that affect the health of brain cells, the growth of new blood vessels in the brain, and even the abundance and survival of new brain cells.

Exercise also improves mood and sleep, and reduces stress and anxiety.

Many studies have suggested that the parts of the brain that control thinking and memory (the prefrontal cortex and medial temporal cortex) have greater volume in people who exercise versus people who don’t.
        • Throwback Thursday - Weight watchers

In the early 60's, Weight Watchers was founded by Jean Nidetch of Queens, NY.

When Nidetch decided to lose weight, she tried various fad programs until she eventually lost 20 pounds following a New York City Board of Health sponsored diet. 
When she found it was getting difficult to keep pushing herself, she decided to create a support group with other friends of hers who wished to drop pounds.

Today, that group of friends has grown to millions of women and men around the world who use the products and services of Weight Watchers to lose unwanted pounds.

Scientists have theorized that Shiatsu massages can improve a persons health due to the calming effect it has on the sympathetic nervous system. --
Our nervous system has feelings? --
Well, no.. but kind of. --
I know that sounds a bit confusing but stick with me for a second… --

        • A hot commodity in the '50s and '60s, the vibrating belt was used to shake your waist, legs, arms, and butt into shape. The machine was marketed as a way to vibrate fat and make it easier for your body to "flush away". As an ad in 1958 put it:
"It is this speeded up motion of your tissues... 3200 times a minute...that aids in fast, effective, spot reduction... that actually helps trim down the size of your measurements wherever it embarrasses you most!" The increasing popularity was not surprising - you could reduce fat and lose weight without actually doing anything! 
The fact that this sounds too good to be true should have been a huge red flag for many.... Scientists eventually discovered (unsurprisingly) that you can't vibrate fat off of your body, which subsequently lead to this fad's quick disappearance.
