28 Day Kick Start

WHAT IS THE BALANCED HABITS 28 DAY KICK START?

The KICK START is a complete nutrition and training program for 28 days that will teach you how to continue your progress long after the month is over.

You devote yourself to everyone and everything else in your life; your family, your children, your career, your community. You find yourself slipping, having more and more difficulty taking care of yourself, knowing what to do and how to do it, and staying on track. You start “diets” and stop, and you’re beginning to fear that you’re never going to get back (or forward) to your best self.

We understand. We’ve been there. We know how tough it is to do it on your own. It’s almost impossible.

You need a formula for success, a path to follow, you need a KICK START!

Your 3 Step Formula for Success when it comes to exercise and nutrition are:

  1. Knowledge – knowing what you need to do
  2. System – having a clear plan of action for doing it
  3. Support – being surrounded by coaches and teammates who will help you stay on track

That’s what the KICK START provides.

We have helped hundreds of people lose thousands of pounds on the KICK START.

WHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR WHITEBOARD TO SAY?

The 28 Day Kick Start has become famous for helping people lose weight, drop dress and pants sizes, transform their bodies, and look and feel better than they have in years. So you have absolutely nothing to lose except those excess pounds. By following 28 Day Kick Start exercise plan and advice on nutrition, you will be making a long-lasting change to your lifestyle that can significantly improve your life.

It turns out, I’ve actually enjoyed having trainers know me by name. If you have a consistent class schedule, you’ll also learn the names of several of the Arena members so it feels like you’re part of a community and not just lugging yourself to the gym. Arena Fitness also does several “adventure” races throughout the year, such as Spartan or Tough Mudder mud runs.

I am eternally grateful for the dedication that all the amazing Arena trainers (Will, Stacey, Joe, Jonathan, Daniela, Phillip) put forth day in and day out. Without them, the TDC wouldn’t have been possible, and without them there wouldn’t be tons of happy clients celebrating their 28-day victories! Thank you Arena for being supportive, motivational, inspirational and above all, for taking our personal needs into account with everything that we do. I couldn’t have asked for a better “family!”

As Doctors of Physical Therapy, we know that proper selection and accurate instruction of exercises is one of the main components to safe recovery from injury and progression in strength and conditioning program. After participating in their Functional Movement Screening (FMS) Day, it is evident that Arena Fitness takes the time and puts forth the effort to select the best exercises and activities suited for each individual. The trainers at Arena Fitness are able to use a systematic approach to determine any precise weakness or dysfunction, which can be improved with their simple, yet effective “Corrective Exercises” prior to performing mainstream strengthening/conditioning activities.

The thing that is most impressive with Arena Fitness is their attention to detail. Combining proper exercise, diet, nutrition, and even screening for proper footwear, they successfully motivate, instruct, and guide each individual to achieve their health and fitness goals.

All the Best!!!

“When I first started the TakeDown Challenge (TDC)  I was 230 pounds and came in with the mindset that I needed to make a change, something had to change because whatever I was doing was not working.

At the first TDC meeting we received our folders with a breakdown of how the TDC works and the lifestyle change we were about to embark on. The folder had everything we needed, it had recipes and a simple sheet that helped you make your own meals in case you did not want to do one of the recipes. The best part was if you had any question no matter what they were, Stacey Garcia was right there to answer them, she was there every step of the way. Not only did she provide you with the knowledge, but she also was also your biggest supporter.

There was also a Facebook page for everyone participating in the TDC, I have to say that was a big help for me, to see other people going through the same thing and sharing how they were feeling because many times I felt the same way.

The other big part of this that helped me were the trainers, Daniela Stratman and Joe Garcia, I really could not have done as well as I did with out their support and motivation. They helped me to always dig deeper and to realize that when I thought I had given everything, I still had more to give.

This was such a great experience, not only did I find out more about myself and what I am capable of, but I also gained the knowledge of food and how to properly fuel my body.

You could not ask for a better gym than Arena Fitness, it has a great family environment, everyone there is friendly and the staff is the Best!!! All the trainers are great people who you can tell really care about you and your success, when you go to Arena Fitness you are not just another face in the crowd, you are Family.”

It’s the best gym I’ve ever been to – and I have interviewed a ton of gyms. No one holds a candle to these guys in terms of attentiveness, positive attitudes, and passion towards fitness. Highly recommend Arena Fitness!!

“I’m a dad, husband and a business owner. Days can be busy, sometimes I get to the gym and
sometimes I don’t. I used to be a member at Arena and wish I was still but my current schedule does
not support it. I ran into Will and I brought up how much I missed their training. He recommended I just
try out the Kickstart program. “Thanks, but no thanks…” I thought. I just can’t get to the gym, that’s
why I have an extra 15 that all dads have. All of my mind’s excuses were just that…my excuses. “I know
how do eat, after all, I’ve done paleo, atkins, low carb, high fat, low fat, high carb…” And none of them
really worked.

So I enrolled, because there was literally no reason not to. Extremes never worked for me and I
don’t have a lot of weight to lose. But that’s just it, extremes never work because they are not realistic
or maintainable. My body is not different than basic biology. Arena IS a different type of gym. The
Kickstart is different type of program. Neither one is trendy nor a flashy, but both work for exactly that
reason. The effort and the commitment are up to me…that’s why I had a successful Kickstart.”

“After living with my post-baby body for 2 years I finally had enough! I knew I needed to find a strong program to help me lose the weight.  I found Arena fitness on Yelp and saw that enrollment for the January 2017 Kick start was taking place. I contacted them via the website and talked to Jonathan the next day. We decided the best option was to try the $20 one week trial. 
I hadn’t worked out regularly in about 6 years and pregnancy had left my abs still separated (Diastasis Recti), so I was unable to a sit-up or push up and could not sustain running for longer than 1 minute. On top of being out of shape, I had  been living with a hip injury for 3 years ago that was still causing hip/back pain.  I was so nervous walking into Arena on my first day. Will, met me at Arena Northridge and listened to all my concerns and talked me through various work outs and stretches to help with my hip/back pain. After my trial week, I was so impressed with the individual attention I got in the semi-private and group training sessions. Will and Phill always made sure the exercises didn’t put extra strain on my hip and were so attentive to my body positions. My form was so poor on all the exercises. I had no idea how much the rest of my body was compensating for weak abs and hips.
 I signed up for the January2017 Kick Start and was very impressed by the program and the meal plans. As a nurse, I am wary of gimmicky diets/fads. But I had no hesitations because all the nutritional information was presented with evidence (and it made sense).  I stuck to the nutrition and exercise program to a T. I didn’t miss a weigh in and looked forward to watching the pounds come off. On the Kick Start program I lost 12.5lbs and 18 inches total. I felt great. At the end of the program, I decided to join Arena as a member. I chose the twice a week membership, as that is all my schedule allows me to go. I continued to follow the post-program guidelines for nutrition and exercise. 
Since the end of the kick start program, I lost another 18lbs for a total of 30 lbs. I still follow the nutrition plan but it is has become normal eating for me. I don’t even think of it as “dieting” or depriving myself. I work out twice a week at Arena and two times at home. I am the strongest I have ever been.  I have not had any hip pain in the last 4 months!! My abs now have definition and not separation. I can actually do real push ups (and even plyo push ups) and sit ups. And for the first time ever, I enjoy running. Joining Arena Fitness was the best decision I made for my health and my body. Now, my focus is not weight loss, its about keeping my body healthy and getting stronger so I can continue to keep up with my toddler.  
Thank you Will, Phill, and the WHOLE ARENA TEAM! You guys are so awesome!! Thank you guys for always pushing me to do more reps, more weights, different activities and always looking out for my safety!”

For years I spent hours in the gym, 5 days a week hundreds of repetitions and miles to nowhere..Then I found obstacle course racing (OCR) and with that a purpose for all of those miles and sets. Each event was a little farther sometimes multiple events in a weekend or a day. Now several years later I find myself making my second attempt at an extreme endurance event in the form of the SISU IRON. Team SISU (derived from the Finnish term Sisu) is the brainchild of Matt Trinca and Daren De Heras, formed to train people to prepare for extreme endurance events and soon after developed their own version of an endurance event called the SISI IRON. The IRON is a 30+ hour event that takes place at the base of the San Gabriel mountains in Monrovia at a Boy Scout Camp called, Camp Trask. The Iron is a test of endurance and will. for 30+ hours athletes complete individual and team tasks including 12 to 15 mile hikes, withstanding the cold murky water of ‘frog pond’, difficult memorization tasks, math problems, archery, wood splitting, 15 mile run for time and a grueling PT session.
This years event takes place April 29- May 2 and I have been preparing by training with the crew at Arena Fitness in Encino and Northridge for the last several months. Thanks, Arena, for getting me ready for this amazing event!
