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.

Clear the Clutter

Tired of living in a mess? Cut it out!

Where does clutter accumulate in your home? For many people, it’s on kitchen counters and in dressers, desks, closets, or the garage. In some homes, clutter is everywhere you look. Clutter doesn’t just make you embarrassed to have friends over. It can mess with your mind. A cluttered, disorganized home can increase your stress, make you feel overwhelmed, zap your energy, and contribute to feelings of depression.

Wish your home was Pinterest-worthy but don’t know how to get there? You don’t need to hire a professional organizer—though you can if you want. Decluttering only takes two things: time and commitment. If you’ve got those two tools in hand, take these steps to turn your cluttered home into a place of clean calmness.

Empty the Space

The best way to start is with a clean slate. Take everything out of the space, whether you’re tackling a room, a closet, or a drawer. Remove all the utensils, clothes, trash, and tools. Whatever is there, get it out.

Short on time or new to the idea of decluttering? Don’t take on an entire room. Begin with a small space like a drawer. Once everything is out of the space, wipe it down or vacuum it clean. Then move on to the next area.

Divide and Conquer

Once you clear out your space, go through each item, one at a time. Decide whether or not you should keep it. Ask yourself whether the item brings you joy, is useful, or still fits. Remember, the goal is to declutter and simplify your life.

Not sure what to keep or toss? Say goodbye to stuff you’ll never use, things that are damaged, or items you have duplicates of. Get rid of kitchen gadgets you never use, old tech accessories, knicknacks, books you’ll never read, and clothes you’ve outgrown or haven’t worn in a year.

Divide everything into four piles: trash, donate, keep, and relocate. Whatever is broken, damaged, or unwanted should go in the trash pile. Items you no longer need but someone else can use go in the donate pile. The donation pile could also be a yard sale pile if you have the time and energy for a yard sale. Sometimes items need to be moved to another place in the home. Toys don’t belong in the kitchen, dishes shouldn’t be in the bedrooms, and office supplies don’t belong in the living room. Items like this go in the relocation pile. Whatever is most important goes in the keep pile.

A Home for Every Item

The best way to avoid clutter in the future is to give every item a home. As you’re organizing each space, group similar things in the same space. Invest in organizational bins, shelves, hooks, or boxes to help with this process. Things you use on a regular basis should be easy to access. Sentimental items or holiday decor can be stored out of the way, in the attic or garage.

Maintenance

Once you spend the time and effort to clean and organize your home, it won’t stay that way without more time and effort. Keeping a home free of clutter is an ongoing activity. Once each item has its own home, it should return to its home when it’s done being used. This happens as laundry is put away, when the kitchen is cleaned after a meal, and after bills are paid. And don’t do it on your own. Each member of the household should have daily and weekly responsibilities to help keep the home clean and organized.
