LIFE IS A SPORT:
Life is a sport and you can win at life. Like an athlete however, you just have to train for it. This means taking a deeper look at your nutrition needs coupled with a highly customized functional fitness training program and this is why we think our Movement Studio was designed with you in mind. Whether you want to take your athletic performance to the next level, build lean muscle, reduce body fat, improve your energy or optimize your health, our functional fitness prescription provides you with a personalized roadmap for achieving your goals in our über-trendy, urban movement studio.

GOALS:
Our goal with functional fitness is ultimately to help you maintain or improve your quality of life by emphasizing core stability and reducing your risk of injury. We focus on exercises that closely mimic the activities of daily living and by doing so, we train your muscles to help you do everyday activities safely and effectively. This includes squatting, reaching, rotating, putting things away over your head and picking things off the floor. A squat for example is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up from a chair or floor, or pick up objects from the floor.

WHY FUNCTIONAL EXERCISES:
Functional exercises also tend to use multiple joints and numerous muscles so instead of only moving the elbows, a functional exercise might involve the elbows, shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles. An example of this is multidirectional lunges and done properly and effectively, this exercise can help prepare your body for common activities, such as vacuuming and yard work. All our fitness programs have been designed around this philosophy so whether you choose to work out one-on-one, in pairs or groups, our team of personal trainers/ exercise physiologists, physical therapists and nutrition coaches, will help you improve your flexibility, agility, reduce inflammation and strengthen your core.

BENEFITS:
Along the way you will start to notice the difference in your muscle tone, endurance, strength and overall health. Our nutrition coach and movement specialist will also work with you to provide individualized nutrition recommendations, eating plans, counseling and goal setting. A variety of health or performance related topics customized to you will be covered and may include a selection of: optimal wellness, healthy eating, athletic performance, diabetes prevention, and heart, digestive and bone health, hormonal health, menopause and weight loss.



Got a question?



 Amenities included with ALL services:

Because self-care is a must, regardless of which service you may be coming in for, we encourage you to plan to arrive early so you can take advantage of our complimentary wellness spa amenities. If you are feeling active, skip the trip to your regular gym that day and get a mindful workout in our state-of-the-art movement studio instead. Feel free to soak and freshen up afterwards using our luxurious rain shower and bathroom offerings. Otherwise, if you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, then a complimentary snack and beverage from our pantry bar might be just what you need. Grab a book from our library and unwind amongst beautiful art in either our main gallery lounge or the reading room in the artist’s loft.





 



Baton Rouge's only Comprehensive, Prescription - Assisted, Weight Loss Program:

FACT SHEET:

FACT #1: WE ARE THE PREMIER COMPREHENSIVE WEIGHT LOSS FACILITY IN BATON ROUGE

We are the local experts and have a combined decades of experience under our belt. What we heard over the years was that clients found it extremely difficult to navigate the health and wellness space and specifically the weight loss industry. This is due in part to the internet and the vast amount of conflicting information out there. Should we be consuming carbs or no? Does cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar work? How about supplements that claim you will lose a ton of weight only to realize it was all a hoax? Well, our goal is to dim the noise and sort through the clutter for you. We have gone back to basics and have assembled a team of specialists who will journey with you. We rely only on tried and true, proven, research methods. 

FACT #2: THERE IS NO QUICK FIX. WEIGHT LOSS IS A JOURNEY

Contrary to what you may have been led to believe, there is no 7, 14 or 21-day diet that is sustainable. Weight loss and specifically healthy weight loss, is a journey which includes a lot of education, the appropriate amount of fitness integration, reassurance, nutrition coaching and perseverance. These diet fads, like the paleo diet, Whole 30, etc. provide results for the short term but most of the weight is regained once you stop the diet and return to your previous habits.

FACT #3: FOR BEST RESULTS, USE IN COMBINATION

For clients who have struggled with weight loss and suffer from weight-related issues, then weight loss medications might be right for you in "conjunction" with the appropriate nutrition and fitness program. Unfortunately, not everyone who is overweight is a candidate for weight loss medications and this is something that will be explored during the Physician consultation.

FACT #4: IT IS BEST TO ASSESS YOUR FITNESS LEVEL

Once you have been deemed to be an appropriate candidate for our weight loss program, you will then undergo a complete fitness assessment with our personal trainers/ movement specialists. At this stage, we will determine which functional fitness exercise regimen will best suit your body type, frame, muscle mass, etc. It is during this segment, that we have been able to identify joints or muscle groups that may impede your successful participation in our fitness programs and possibly need attention from our Physical Therapy consultant. **For clients with certain medical conditions, we may recommend you get a clearance from your primary care physician or Cardiologist before initiating any fitness program.**

FACT #5: IT IS BEST TO ASSESS YOUR NUTRITIONAL STATUS

If you often feel bloated after eating or have frequent complaints of indigestion or abdominal cramping, we strongly recommend that you get an ALCAT test which provides information on over 350 possible foods or chemicals that could be sabotaging your weight loss and your health in general. Armed with this data, we can make informed decisions on foods to eliminate from your diet which will give you the optimal opportunity for success.

FACT #6: MAJORITY OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS WINS WILL DEPEND ON THE FOODS YOU CONTINUE TO CONSUME

That said, once armed with the above data, we urge you to consider having a diet plan customized for you by one of our nutrition coaches or take advantage of the Meal Prep option. Choose to have your foods prepared and pre-portioned for you 2-3 times/day by one of our approved food vendors for at least 8 weeks but typically, up to 12 weeks or longer. This takes away the stress of having to take a day a week to prep and prepare your foods so you can use that time instead to focus on self-care.

ARE YOU READY? LET US MAP OUT A SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY FOR YOU:

Goals will be set and a progress map will be designed for you. There will be periodic, strategic weigh-ins and subsequent follow-up Inbody assessments to follow your progress to help make modifications to your customized plan.





Personal Functional Fitness Training Sessions

Your fitness program is only as good as the people behind it. The movement specialists at HCG combine their expertise and design workouts to get you the results you are looking for whether you are new to exercise, rehabilitating an injury, ready to lose weight or looking to further enhance your fitness level. The first appointment with your trainer is the assessment which includes an in-depth review of your health and exercise history, body composition test, metabolic measurement, movement screen and postural analysis. You will receive instructions on how to prepare for the assessment. Your trainer will create your program based on the assessment results and your fitness and health goals. At this point your sessions begin. The assessment will be repeated at the end of every package to show you your progress as well as to motivate you!

1-On-1 Personal Functional Fitness Training

Our one-on-one packages come in 6, 12 or 24 sessions to accommodate your goals and time constraints. For example if your goal is to lose weight we strongly suggest 24 sessions for better results. Your trainer carefully designs each workout to progress you toward your goals as well as to educate you on how the exercises will benefit you. We believe this information is vital so our clients can take better care of their health and well-being.

Small Group Functional Fitness Training

Studies show working out with a partner or friends increases the likelihood of sticking to an exercise program. For this reason we also offer personal training in small groups of 2, 3 or 4. No assessment is required for group training because the workouts are less customized. Your trainer will review each client’s health and exercise history and design workouts that takes into consideration each person’s strengths as well as common areas that need improvement.

After your free class you can pay either per class or purchase an 8 or 12 class package. Once a class is full your name can be placed on a waiting list through the app. You will be notified through the app if a space becomes available.


Interval Fitness Training

We could recommend a traditional workout to you but since we are mostly science and research driven, not to mention your valuable limited time, we have opted for the high intensity interval training method. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) describes any workout that alternates between intense bursts of activity and fixed periods of less-intense activity or even complete rest. Super-efficient HIIT is the ideal workout for a busy schedule—whether you want to squeeze in a workout during your lunch break or to get in shape for a fast-approaching event. Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training (done three times a week) than the person jogging on the treadmill for an hour. One Canadian study compared the fat-loss effects of interval training versus a traditional, slow cardio regimen and showed that the traditional regimen burned twice as many calories as the interval regimen, but those who performed intervals lost more body fat.

More recently, a study in the "Journal of Obesity" showed that 12 weeks of HIIT reduced body fat and increased muscle mass. There were also substantial reductions in total abdominal trunk and visceral fat, and increases in lean body mass and aerobic power. The most surprising aspect of the results was that the subjects' diets remained the same. And that's not even the best part! Using the Tabata training method, you can complete an effective HIIT workout in just 4 minutes.


Tabata

Named after Japanese researcher Izumi Tabata, who has conducted extensive research on interval training, Tabata consists of performing an activity all-out for 20 seconds, resting for 10 seconds, and then repeating the on-off sequence for four minutes total.

One of Tabata's most famous findings demonstrated that 20 seconds of all-out cycling followed by 10 seconds of low intensity cycling for four minutes was as beneficial for VO2 max (maximal aerobic capacity) as 45 minutes of long, slow cardio performed four times per week.

Since VO2 max is generally considered the best indicator of an athlete's cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance, this study was a game changer.

It conclusively showed that positive health benefits derived from traditional aerobic training could be accomplished with high-intensity interval training.


HIIT/ Tabata training has been shown to improve:

• aerobic and anaerobic fitness

• blood pressure

• cardiovascular health

• insulin sensitivity (which helps the exercising muscles more readily use glucose for fuel to make energy)

• cholesterol profiles

• abdominal (visceral) fat and body weight while maintaining muscle mass.

During a HIIT workout, your body can't shuttle enough oxygen to your muscles during periods of hard work. Therefore, your muscles accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. The result: Your metabolism is revved for hours after you leave the gym. Trainers refer to this phenomena as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC. The biggest way to use it to your advantage is to regularly work short, intense bouts of exercise into your workout regimen.

InBody 570 Body Composition Analyzer


The InBody 570 goes beyond traditional body composition analysis. It not only analyzes how much fat and muscle you have, but it also measures your Total Body Water and divides it into Intracellular Water and Extracellular Water, values important for understanding a user’s fluid distribution in medical, wellness, or fitness contexts.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis: Safe, low-level currents are sent through the body through the hand and foot electrodes. The impedance the currents encounter are measured, and from there, your body composition is derived. With InBody's patented technology, BIA has never been more highly correlated with gold standard methods until now.
