There are still two good months of summer left and about three of warm sunshine where you could be flaunting your newly shaped body around in skimpy shorts. But what’s been stopping you from getting that hot summer bod? Time? Money? Support? Well, at Envy Nutrition in the NoHo Arts District, you can kiss all of those excuses goodbye!
The community style wellness center opened in November of 2010 by weight loss veteran, Terri Jackson. Inspired by her experience with cellular nutrition, she felt that she could bring that same inspiration to folks in her community who were looking to lose weight as well as athletes who wanted to reach their peak performance.
Envy Nutrition boasts a nutritional shake bar and free Wi-Fi on top of a welcoming atmosphere, so that those who are just dipping their toes into the proverbial weight loss pool can get acquainted with the staff and their services. Such services include a free wellness evaluation that will help determine your body fat percentage along with a free meal replacement shake and tea. For folks who want to pop in for the meal replacement and some support, that will only run you $5.50, and if you purchase packages to keep you on track, the costs are even more affordable.
Better yet, Envy Nutrition offers a six-week weight loss challenge, a $200 value, for only $99 to get started. A portion of that goes into a prize pot for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of the challenge. The challenges are open to anyone, and each week the coaching sessions are fun-filled with everything from facials and pot lucks to friendly conversation about how your week has gone, struggles or not.
Past winners and weight loss challenge participants, such as Linda Franco and 84 year old actress LOU*LOU, rave about their results and even more so about the friendship and guidance they receive from the staff and other participants. Challenge facilitator Susan Shearer adds that the development of trust they gain with their clients is what sets them apart from other weight loss centers with the help of the results-proven products and meal plans.
Teaching people about proper nutrition and how to eat well, in addition to leading a healthier lifestyle in order to have happier, longer lives, is what the coaches at Envy Nutrition do every day. Pop in anytime and even bring a friend as this is like no other health or weight loss center around. Open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at 11135 Magnolia Blvd. in North Hollywood, is where you will find good friends, great support and the road to optimum health.
