Of course, the gym does get extremely busy at peak times, but as a 24-hour gym, you can plan your visits to avoid this. This serves as proof of the great value and variety of machines. A timetable of classes are available which range from Circuits to Spinning, and Kettle Bells to the ominously titled Military Body Blast. They are very accessible to view and reserve places on, as each member has their own account on the Pure Gym website. The classes are priced from £1 to £3 and there are up to 10 places available for each class. The smug sense of superiority when booking a 7:30am class is unbeatable. The reality of shivering down to the gym on a dark Winters' morning with a make-up free face and exchanging morning pleasantries with the milkman, is another matter entirely. Needless to say, I only attempted this once and will perhaps try it again in the Summer months.

"People who lose 100 pounds or more feel healthier, they know they are healthier, they can do things they could not do before. But when they look at their body, it's a constant reminder of where they were – and it can sometimes make it difficult to move on with their life," says J. Peter Rubin, MD, director of the Life After Weight Loss Surgery Center at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.


For most of us, there comes a time, when we look in the mirror or stop for a break after long stairs and say to ourselves: “it’s time to hit the gym”. Fortunately, the growing popularity of active lifestyle led to creation of many gyms and sport clubs – we have plenty to choose from. So... which to choose? Think about what you’re going to use at the gym. A treadmill? Maybe some weights? If yes, do you really want to pay for everything, including sauna, swimming pool and fully-equipped spa section? Not likely. Then, mix low price, clear rules and professional equipment without fancy and unnecessary additions. What you get? Pure Gym.

While some of these problems still occur (notably the need for transfusions), experts say it's on a much smaller scale in the last few years. In a study presented in 2003 at an American Society of Plastic Surgeons conference in San Diego, researchers found that many such complications could be avoided if patients allowed more time to elapse between weight loss surgery and plastic surgery.

Body Sculpting™ is a strength training workout that combines flexibility and cardiovascular conditioning using just one set of 5-pound (each) dumbbells. Body Sculpting™ is designed to shape and tone the body without building muscular size or bulk. Body Sculpting™ is highly recommended to those enrolled in a weight loss program because it helps retain lean muscle tissue while boosting metabolism. We offer a variety of classes geared to accommodate all fitness levels.
It’s ok to be skeptical! Come meet the staff, and let us meet you! First, our trained staff will show you our wall of client success stories, then, we’ll do a body composition analysis. It’s very detailed and will show valuable information like your body fat percentage, muscle mass, visceral fat and your metabolic age. If time permits, you may also do a mini-trial session. It’s just a few minutes under the LED technology, but you can experience what it’s like, and see that’s it’s pain-free and very relaxing! You will then meet with the Lipolysis Consultant who will answer all your questions. Many clients can start their first session the same day! What are you waiting for? Client results vary.
Signs of a sharp instructor: Instructors should tell you to use moderately heavy weights so that you don’t do more than 15 reps per set. Watch out for instructors who do dozens of repetitions with light weights: You’re not going to build much strength or tone that way. The instructor should correct your form and remind you where you should feel the exercise. Watch for a warm-up and cooldown, too.

The duration of a typical body sculpting treatment lasts for about thirty to forty minutes (maximum is an hour.) During this time, it is recommended to bring something with you to pass time since you will not be under a general anesthetic. Other ways to pass time is to get some of your work done or take a short nap while the procedure is going on. Comparing this to traditional surgical methods, which takes up to 10 hours to complete and a prolonged period of one month of downtime to recover.

This personalized attention coupled with expert skill and artistry is the reason why Coolspa is known as NYC’s premier body sculpting center.


We all have stubborn areas of fat that just won’t respond to time at the gym, and don’t even respond as much as we wish to weight loss. Working out and watching your weight is an important part of staying fit, but you can’t control where on your body your fat is deposited when you gain weight, or from where on your body it leaves when you lose weight. Crunches don’t necessarily burn belly fat; nor does running necessarily burn thigh fat. Exercise burns calories but your body decides (based more than anything on your genetics) where the fat comes from to pay that caloric debt. With arguably the best body sculpting NYC has to offer, Coolspa can help you get rid of that stubborn fat.

PureGym has redefined the industry with its affordable, high-quality and no-contract offering, and the success of this strategy is reflected in the company's continued growth. Launched in November 2009, in February this year, PureGym reached one million members - a milestone never previously achieved by a UK gym group - and in March opened its 200th site. In addition to the acquisition of Soho Gyms, PureGym plans to open at least 20 gyms a year - extending its position as the UK's leading gym operator. On average PureGym members pay around £20 per month compared to typical average prices in the market of around £40. Members benefit from fully equipped facilities and between 50 and 80 classes per week included in the monthly membership price.
 3. Crystallized fat. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes and when the machine is lifted, what’s left is an abnormal mold of frozen, crystallized fat—like those pin impression toys you stick your face in and it keeps the shape. The fat is then massaged back into your skin where it dies and is absorbed and eliminated by your body, never to return again. 
There are no side-effects to a body sculpting procedure which must be reason enough for anyone who wants to try the treatment. Unlike traditional surgeries which pose a risk of infection due to going under general anesthesia not to mention the risk of post-surgical allergies. Apart from that, there is no indication of pain anywhere in the body sculpting procedure. Patients might experience a mild discomfort and that is only due to the initial focusing of light on their designated area. There’s no other sign of discomfort throughout the whole procedure. Plus, none of the patients have reported any type of infection that occurred as a result of the body sculpting procedure.
PureGym will convert all of the Soho Gyms sites into the PureGym format through a rolling refurbishment programme. Similar to the successful integration of the LA Fitness business, which it acquired in 2015, PureGym will invest in refurbishing the gyms, providing Soho Gyms' existing members with access to first-class facilities and a growing nationwide network of 214 gyms. This transaction will bring the number of sites in PureGym's London estate to 59[1].
In the past, liposuction would come with heavy downtime, taking weeks or even months to fully recover from the pain and swelling because of the procedure. However, at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute we employ an advanced form of liposuction named VASER Liposuction to significantly reduce the recovery time. With VASER, you can expect to return to y...

Ultrasound energy (UltraShape). This type of treatment uses ultrasound energy to break down fat. It is the most time-intensive of the four types, taking approximately one hour per treatment session. Instead of hooking you up to a machine, a technician will move the device around manually. It uses a mechanical vibration to break down and destroy fat. This works on the abdomen and isn’t meant for other areas, Dr. Khetarpal says. There is no discomfort, she says.
Maybe you’ve lost a lot of weight and that little extra skin is bothering you. Perhaps you’ve just given birth, but your clothes aren’t fitting right. No matter what the reason is, the results of a tummy tuck can be something to look forward to.

"Be aware that we live in a very competitive environment whereby youth is king and people are looking for less-invasive procedures, and these procedures are now for the first time being directly marketed by the manufacturer in consumer magazines," points out session moderator Franklin L. DiSpaltro, MD, a plastic surgeon in West Orange, N.J., and a past president of ASAPS.
A typical CoolSculpting procedure in the U.S. can cost anywhere from $1,000-$4,000. Although the fat cells destroyed by cryolosis are gone permanently, it doesn’t mean a patient cannot regain the weight. Regular diet and exercise should always be a part of a healthy lifestyle. Also, body sculpting is not pain free. Many patients who claim to have a “high pain tolerance” report intense soreness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness both during the procedure and up to weeks afterward. Always, always consult your doctor before trying procedures like selective cryolosis.
Results will be visible within the first 3-4 weeks and will continue to impress in the months that follow. At 2-4 months, most clients will see their full outcomes on display. According to the FDA, a CoolSculpting treatment reduces the amount of fat by an average of 20-25% in the area treated. With repeated CoolSculpting sessions, this number can climb. Be sure to schedule a follow up visit following your treatment to assess your results.
When a budget gym was scheduled to arrive in Leeds, it bridged a gap for me. It was offering an alternative to paying upwards of £40 a month in other city centre gyms, whilst also eliminating the possibility of failing my personal fitness quest by going running independently. At £9.99 per month, I was impressed at the value of my contract, but reserved judgement on the quality of the gym, as it had not yet opened. The chain is able to offer such a price because it provides a 'no frills' gym, with no pool, sauna or steam room. It is staffed from 8am-8pm, with CCTV monitoring the place 24-hours a day. Six other friends had joined at the same time and we hoped that a pact-like agreement would apply positive peer pressure to our motivation! Plus, anything to prevent me from having to hear Davina McCall's not-so-dulcet tones on her fitness DVD was a welcome addition to my life. During opening week, Friend #1 was our pioneer in testing out the gym. On his much anticipated return, his report was not entirely satisfactory. "It's quite good, but it does have the feel of a correctional facility." Not a great account, but I remained hopeful. Perhaps this merely revealed more about Friend #1's chequered past rather than the quality of Pure Gym. Nevertheless, this intrigued Friend #3, Friend #5 and myself into going later that day. On entering the gym, I saw that the previous description was a pessimistic one. Although the space has a functional appearance, there is an impressive array of exercise machines. As well as the usual suspects of running machines, bikes and rowing machines for cardiovascular training; there are also some great strengthening machines, both individual and multi-station. A circuit training area, a space to use medicine balls and a free weights area complete the layout. Of course, the gym does get extremely busy at peak times, but as a 24-hour gym, you can plan your visits to avoid this. This serves as proof of the great value and variety of machines. A timetable of classes are available which range from Circuits to Spinning, and Kettle Bells to the ominously titled Military Body Blast. They are very accessible to view and reserve places on, as each member has their own account on the Pure Gym website. The classes are priced from £1 to £3 and there are up to 10 places available for each class. The smug sense of superiority when booking a 7:30am class is unbeatable. The reality of shivering down to the gym on a dark Winters' morning with a make-up free face and exchanging morning pleasantries with the milkman, is another matter entirely. Needless to say, I only attempted this once and will perhaps try it again in the Summer months. As well as the classes, there is also a small fee for the use of their sunbeds. It is these extra charges that suggests Pure Gym is to other gyms, what Ryanair is to other airlines. At such a cheap rate however, I see this as no hardship. With fairly spacious showers and changing room facilities, Pure Gym more than fulfils my fitness needs. To summarise, if you are at the gym to actually do some physical exercise on a budget, rather than pose in the steam room and chat to friends, then I would highly recommend Pure Gym.
