(Sponsored) Greenpoint Fitness & Wellness Center, Human@Ease (31 Nassau Ave) seeks two test subjects for a holistic weight loss case study.
Human@Ease is looking for two ideal candidates who are highly motivated to participate in a 12-wk case study.
We are looking for one male and one female between the ages of 24-55 who have struggled with long time weight issues (losing or gaining), and are currently experiencing issues with managing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Each participant must be willing to complete the 12 week program in its entirety with full compliance. Participants’ progress will be photographed, documented and displayed for marketing and informational purposes.
This is a new program that will be launching end of summer called the B.E.S.T You! Plan (Balance. Energy. Strength. Tranquility). It’s an all inclusive holistic fitness, detox, & weight-loss (or gain) program that includes personal training, life & nutritional coaching, body assessments, classes, infrared sauna sessions, data tracking & more.
This program is set up and designed to deal with past conditioning and emotional obstacles related to food; proper diet and exercise education; and strengthening and improving not only the muscular and cardiovascular systems– but all systems of the body. The BEST You! Plan is guaranteed to deliver life long results.
This program is perfect for anyone who has ever struggled with weight issues; lack of strength, energy & motivation; confusion surrounding diet and exercise; health & musculoskeletal issues; or anyone who just finds it difficult to staying committed to a program.
Each participant will receive 12 consecutive weeks of personal training, life & nutritional coaching, detoxification sessions, & classes. Requirements must be met to be selected for the case study.
We will be holding interviews for interested individuals on Sunday August 18th at 5:30pm in the Ohm Room at Human@Ease Fitness & Wellness Center 31 Nassau Ave (btwn Guernsey & Dobbin). Please email any questions to Dy at: bestplan (AT) humanatease.com and write “case study info” in the subject line.
I decided to include Dishan in the weekly portrait series, first because she is gorgeous and a real character, but also because she is part of my weekly butt kicking series at her business Human@Ease, where she trains me. I asked Dishan a few questions:
I fell in love with GP about 5 years ago and I knew I wanted to open my business here. There is such an awesome sense of community. You have this amazing blend of people that gives GP that trendy feel but still with some original NY attitude.
Where do you get your daily coffee?
I usually make my own in my french press … but if I don’t, I usually order from 5 Leaves or Lokal. They are the close by.
I am a sucker for anything with almond paste.
What is your favorite exercise?
That would have to be the deadlift using a trap bar. Sometimes my workout consists of just that one exercise and I am fried! I understand many of your readers don’t know what this exercise is, but believe me when I tell you, you can get an amazing full body workout in under 7 minutes with just this ONE exercise!! No joke.
Favorite place in GP?
Hmmm, this is a tough one! There are so many great places in GP and all the local businesses take such pride in their establishments and do their best to make you feel so welcome! I really couldn’t pick just one. But if I was forced to choose, I love being here at my own business in GP because it’s such a stress-free environment and I get to make others feel welcome.
Donation based yoga is still the hottest workout out there. It has morphed into a social phenomenon in which tons of people come together to achieve fitness & well being. Student donations make yoga affordable for all to bring wellness to all.
Human@Ease aims to create a donation based yoga program where people give what they can during class and a percentage of revenue is given to a local charity. TRUE GIVING makes donation based yoga even better, keeping wellness affordable, and giving to local charities to further spread the love.
“We take care of our bodies through fitness, why should we stop there? With this program students not only benefit but we get to help others in the process.” – Alexander Smith (Human@Ease Trainer)
Students will vote at the end of each class for which organization to donate. This way each student will know where their donation is going and how it is helping out the community. What is better than being able to help others as we work to improve ourselves?
Human@Ease would like to welcome you to visit the gym.
Just because you weigh a buck twenty soaking wet doesn’t mean you can’t afford to lose some excess body fat. Yes, even skinny people need to exercise. So if your tone is feeling not so toned, contact Human@Ease and we’ll give you a complimentary body assessment when you mention ‘Greenpointers,’
Stop by Human@Ease and mention ‘Greenpointers’ for 15% OFF!
Apply the discount to any drop-in Class, Personal Training session, or Infrared sauna session*
*Please note that personal training and infrared sauna sessions require an appointment
