Greetings Northern Virginia readers! Welcome to our inaugural blog post “Shape Up with VelaShape III.” Our first post focuses on VelaShape because we are seeing a lot of clients who are struggling with "COVID Weight Gain". Honestly, you’d be hard pressed to talk to someone who didn’t gain at least a little weight during COVID. In fact, studies show that the average American gained 29 lbs during COVID! If you gained weight during COVID, don’t beat yourself up too much—it’s not like there was much else to do! Eating was about the only interesting thing we had going for us! Certainly we are still struggling to move beyond pandemic life, but these days, many locals are seeking treatment to help them get back into shape--and at our spa that means VelaShape III.
Our Client Story
We recognize that it’s one thing to talk about getting back into shape, but it’s another thing to see it in action! One of our regular clients agreed to help us chronicle her journey with VelaShape III at Health and Beauty for life. Our client reached out to us explaining she wanted to be bikini ready this summer. She admitted that while she generally eats pretty well and works our regularly, she did experience some weight gain during COVID.
Her goal entailed a 12-week fitness challenge to lose 8% of her weight. She committed to maintaining a healthy diet, working out regularly, and adding VelaShape III to her plan. Her biggest complaint was the appearance of her stomach because wearing a bikini, well, bears all. This 40 year-old mom has loose skin, stretch marks, and pockets of cellulite around her mid-section, so while diet and exercise help a lot, it’s usually not enough to deal with the additional cosmetic issues.
