Eastpointe Health & Fitness Member, John Huhn, loses 200 lbs in 3 years, and is living proof that you don’t need surgery to lose weight!

John had always been active as a child, whether it was playing football, basketball, or doing track and field. But as an adult, he became less active, and his weight gain started to slow him down. In 2018 he was at his heaviest, 428lbs, and that was when he decided it was time to make a change. He had a goal in mind, he wanted to be under 300lbs, but he knew this was a race, not a sprint to the finish line. It would take time, determination, and lots of commitment to get where he wanted to be.

“I wanted to lose weight to be healthy and active, as well as prolong my life.” – John Huhn

Time to Get into Those Jeans!

The Jeans Challenge is a unique version of our challenges which focuses on positive reinforcement and behavioral improvements to determine success rather than the scale weight. Our current group of 15 Jeans Challenge Ladies completed the challenge on November 1st! They logged their workouts and tracked their food intake to be sure they could successfully get into their goal jeans.  We are happy to report that for those women that completed the challenge and abided by the guidelines, the Jeans try-ons were a huge success!

The women will attend a personal shopping event specifically for our Jean’s Challenge winners at Lucky Brand in the Grove on November 21nd and will sport their “new” size jeans for the upcoming holiday!

 

Are YOU up for the Challenge?!!

Our Next Shore Results program – The New Year New You Body Transformation Contest – Starts on January 17th!

Bells and Beers Bingo

 

Legend has it the event we now call “Bells and Beers” was created eons ago when a fellow gym rat asked another to enjoy barley, wheat, and hops in liquid form at an artic temperature. Ever since, Bells and Beers is one of our favorite events in Shore Results. In years past we would lift heavy stuff (Barbells and Kettle Bells) and slip some cold one’s for a small fee which would be donated to a worthy cause.

This year we decided to add an additional layer of earth-shattering excitement by including a Bingo game for a chance to win prizes. This event is a great way to kick off your Holiday giving, get a great workout and enjoy a social gathering with your fit fam all at the same time. The team at Shore Results will lead you through a challenging workout that can be modified for all fitness levels. The workout will be followed by a Bingo game and chance to win some prizes while consuming perfectly frosted and ever so tasty adult beverages.

There is a sign-up sheet at the front desk, please try your best to provide your donation in advance to avoid chaos day of, we can add it to your account or take cash. This year’s donation will be given to the ASPCA. All are welcome so please join us on Sunday, Nov 14th starting at 12pm in the Shore Results area, Cheers!

Restorative Yoga with Nancy is BACK!

A Special 90-minute monthly class

 

A relaxing way to de-stress, re-energize and find balance. The practice is beneficial because restorative yoga works in a passive, not active manner and it places your body in shapes that are effective on both a physical and emotional level, without strain.  It is a prop heavy practice, and you will be provided with the essentials to help you fully ease into the positions so you can truly ‘let go’. Each pose is held for approximately 5 minutes to allow time for the body to release.  Bolsters, blankets and blocks will be used to help you into a relaxing position. Most of the class will take place on the floor with the lights dim and soft instrumental music.

This special class 90-minute class will be offered once per month and will be taught by yoga teacher, Nancy Aufiero­­.  

DATE:   1st Sunday of each month 

TIME:    3:00pm – 4:30pm

COST:   $30 members / $35 non-members

** This class will be limited at this time to 8 participants each week and requires prior sign up. Payment is required at time of sign up.
