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.

Why Golf? 

Seven reasons why you should hit the links this weekend.

It’s a fact. You either get golf or you don’t. Many don’t see the fun or purpose of a slow-moving, expensive game of golf that takes up hours and hours of time. While others dream of spending a day walking the fairways, teeing off, and putting.

Whether you’ve never golfed or hit the course every chance you get, there are good reasons to get out there and tee off. Here are seven ways golf improves your mental and physical health.

1. It’s A Life Sport

Unlike some sports, golf is one of those great activities that is adaptable to any age or stage in life. Whatever your skill level, whether male or female, you can still enjoy a game of golf. And while it is hard to master the game of golf, it is easy to learn. From the youngest child learning a game of miniature golf to an elderly adult who’s spent years mastering their form on the golf course, golf is a life sport. Learn it today, and you’ll be able to enjoy it for the rest of your life.

2. It Burns Calories

Even though you’re not running or jumping during a game of golf, you still burn a good amount of calories during an 18-hole round. Walking for a round of golf, which is about five to six miles, can take three to five hours. This amount of walking can burn an average of 1,500 calories. Walking on a hilly course will burn even more. Of course, driving around in a golf cart will lessen the potential calorie burn, as will golfing only nine holes. However, if you walk a full 18 holes, a game of golf has the potential to burn more calories than a gym workout.

3. It Provides Effective Exercise

For good health and weight loss, you should take at least 10,000 steps a day. Walking while golfing can easily exceed this number. All the walking, frequent bending, and carrying your golf bag provide exercise. Since your arms, core, back, and leg muscles are all involved when you swing the golf club, your golf swing provides a full-body workout. So the more you practice your swing, the more exercise you get.

4. It’s Low-Impact

While providing a high level of enjoyment, golfing has a low risk for injury. It is a low-impact sport, which makes it an ideal workout for older people or those with arthritis, knee problems, or joint pain.

5. It Reduces Stress

Being out in the fresh air while exercising and doing something you enjoy are great ways of managing stress. It’s no wonder many people turn to golf as a way to reduce anxiety and improve their mood. Even practicing at home helps. Get in the front yard and spend time focusing on your form. As you do this, the worries of the day fade away and stress will leave your shoulders, back, and mind.

6. It Offers Social Interaction

In our fast-paced world with constant communication, people report being lonelier than ever. Thankfully, golf is a great chance to socialize. A golf course or clubhouse is a great place to meet new people, enjoy social interaction, and engage in a competitive round of golf with a friend.

7. It Teaches Life Skills

Like other sports, golf teaches players life skills. A single round can take hours, you have to wait until it’s your turn, and you have to spend time calculating your next shot. These factors all help you increase in patience and focus.
