Q & A with Rachel Cosgrove, Owner of Results Fitness
What's the best way to make sure that I don't rebound this time when I lose this extra weight?
The number-one secret weapon to sustainable long-term fat loss and changing your body "for good" - I'm talking "love the reflection in the mirror" changes - is to make strength training a priority. Most people make the mistake of prioritizing cardio when trying to lose weight, but that can lead to a slower metabolism and weight loss that's only temporary. Learning to properly lift weights burns fat, increases your metabolism and sets your body up to not only gain strength but to stay fit and young. Lift weights two to three times a week with a full-body fat-burning, strength-building program and you'll notice changes in your body like never before.

Q & A: How the Megaformer can Yield Mega Results
How can the Lagree Fitness model help me lose weight and create long, lean muscles?
If you want to lengthen, tone muscle and torch body fat, you've found the right workout! Motivate offers the Lagree Fitness Method developed by fitness visionary, Sebastien Lagree. Unlike any other workout, Lagree Fitness is designed to target the slow-twitch muscle fibers - think long-distance runners versus sprinters. These muscle fibers are your endurance muscles, which are longer, thinner and are your fat-burning muscle fibers. This will have you burning calories long after class. With the limitless versatility of the M3 Megaformer, Motivate's classes will push your body's limits, revealing a stronger "you" inside and out. The Megaformer allows you to move seamlessly from one exercise to the next, keeping the heart rate up and the muscles effectively working throughout the entire class. Motivate offers a fun, engaging, welcoming place for women and men to go and feel strong and powerful. You'll quickly learn to love the burn and "shake" that comes with Lagree Fitness!

Chill Out this Summer with the Coolest Recovery in Town
If you're suffering from inflammation, auto immune issues, soft-tissue injuries, joint pain or just "I pushed it too hard" fatigue, you've probably heard by now that cryotherapy can make a significant impact on your recovery. Why was pro-basketball social-media newsfeeds filled with pictures of superstars like LeBron James in a cryotherapy machine before the Finals this month? Simple: Because it works! In the two to three minutes you're in the cryo chamber, your skin is exposed to temps as low as -240 degrees. It's a "dry" cold, thanks to the nitrogen gas used, and the time passes quickly as you chat with your professional cryotherapy therapist. During that time, though, amazing things are happening to your body, as freshly-charged blood cells rush to points of injury at the same time as inflammation markers and toxins are flushed away, to be passed naturally through your system. Your first treatment will put a pep in your step; follow-up sessions will build upon each other to make a dramatic impact in your mobility, flexibility, comfort and energy levels.
