Slenderizing just got easier
By Sparta Live | June 24, 2005 12:00 am
There is a new place in town where people can slim down and get healthier without the damaging impact to tender joints.
While there are plenty proven ways to becoming a healthier person, in today’s fast-paced lifestyle, sometimes people have trouble fitting anything new into their schedule, even if that something can make them feel better, look better and live longer.
Donna Hatfield opened the salon in Sparta after using the franchise facilities in Crossville and being very happy with the results.
“I loved it, I went for about 6-8 months and decided to bring a salon to Sparta,” she said.
Hatfield’s grandmother Betty ‘Granny’ Dickson has lost 15 and 1/4 inches and lost seven pounds since she has been going.
“It is so easy and I am real pleased with the results,” she said.
CG’s Slender You is ready to welcome each and every one to take advantage of the motorized equipment on site to assist to regaining strength, endurance and flexibility.
Since 1983, Slender You has offered the health and fitness industry a different way to get in shape. More than 3,000 salons are open around the world with locations throughout Europe, in all 50 states and in the Caribbean.
Patrons come in and lay on the tables while the machine does the work. The first session is free. There is no contract to sign, no membership fee and patrons only pay for sessions they attend.
Hatfield encourages residents to come by and check out the machines no obligation and free the first time. She does suggest people call ahead and make appointments just to make sure there are machines available.
The salon is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Exercise and losing weight reduces the risk of high blood pressure,
The salon is set up with individual motorized tables that focus on different parts of the body to tone.
The leg table offers circular motion through 1,700 step repetitions while pulling legs in time with the table. This situation supports bodyweight so negative impact on hips, knees and ankles is reduced.
The gentle massage action on hips and thighs manage the body through three isometric exercises on the Sandbag table.
Proper breathing and focus on upper stomach and diaphragm direct the action on the Sit-up Table.
The Stretch Table, Vibrator Table and the Waist, Tummy and Hip Table, round out the machines available for use.
Hatfield is working on package details and gift giving ideas.
“We also have men who use the equipment, and even a nine-year-old is a customer,” she said. “The only requirement is for the youngsters to be at least five-feet tall.”
