Madeira Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
Millions of people across the USA are attending any one of hundreds of fitness camps in order to lose weight and get fit again, and research shows millions are being disappointed when – just weeks after graduation – they are putting on the pounds again.
Linda Mullins, founder and CEO of Core Fitness Solution (http://www.corefitnesssolution.com), says that’s because while ordinary fitness camps focus mostly on diet and exercise, they fail to help participants achieve long-term health and wellness when they neglect the most important ingredients supporting the change to a healthy lifestyle: individual nutrition counseling, personal psychotherapy and follow up.
Research cited by Chase Freedom Diet Reviews concludes that 95% of those who lose weight eventually gain it back within three years. Beyond three years, that failure rate is even worse. That’s why continued follow up for a full year, which is offered by Core Fitness Solution, is so important.
“The main problem with your waistline is all in your head,” declares Mullins, leader of a team of 10 seasoned professionals and experts at St. Petersburg, FL-based Core Fitness Solution, the only fully integrated holistic residential fitness camp in the southeast.
“You can work out until you drop and endure all the fad diets popular at most fitness camps, but you will not know permanent lasting success until you retrain your brain,” said Mullins. “It is essential that you receive personal guidance and counseling from a trusted psychotherapist who will give you the mental tools to break unhealthy habits and embrace healthy ones – permanently. Unless the camp you are considering offers the services of a licensed psychotherapist, a licensed certified nutritionist and follow up once you’re back home, take a pass.”
After personally experiencing a fitness camp herself four years ago, Mullins decided “I could do it better myself”, put together a crack team of experts and licensed professionals, and founded Core Fitness Solution in Madeira Beach in 2008. What was missing at the camp she attended was individual psychotherapy and licensed certified nutrition counseling, two key elements in what she describes as the healthy lifestyle fitness foundation, which includes:
- Rigorous, organized, focused exercise routines with specific goals and objectives
- Realistic nutrition planning, including guidance on proper shopping techniques to achieve optimum health
- Professional counseling from a licensed psychotherapist who can guide participants through the maze of challenges associated with the requirement to retrain your brain as well as you body
- One year of follow up support to help clients fully integrate the changes into their everyday lives for long term success
