Laserfit by Contours

Sometimes all we need is motivation and a little bit of help to achieve a realistic way to lose inches off our body.  A few months ago, I was invited by Contours to try out their Laserfit program and when they told me that the treatment was painless, I was immediately on board.

What is Laserfit?  Laserfit is a procedure that comes with your own personal fitness facilitator, you will get to experience a compact package of Zerona (a non-invasive cold laser exposure to melt fat), workouts, Vibrafit exercises and nutritional guides, which are broken down into:
  • 40 minute Zerona treatments
  • 10 minute interval training work out
  • 10 minute Vibrafit exercises
  • Do daily 10 minute workouts at home
  • Maintain a 7-inch diet plate recommendation following a healthy eating guide
  • Do behavioral modification techniques

Here's my Laserfit experience with Contours.

On my first session, my entire body was measured in inches (neck, right arm, left arm, back, waist, hips, right thigh, left thigh, right knee and left knee) so that they can give an assessment on the number of sessions that I would need.  I was advised that I would need 6 Laserfit sessions.

For each one hour session, I had my own private treatment room.  But before my Zerona laser treatment would start, I would need to strip down to my undergarments, and lie on the treatment bed face up with the Zerona targeted on the middle part of my body - stomach, hips and upper leg for 20 minutes.  It is totally painless while the treatment is ongoing, all you'll hear is a the sound of the machine. 

After 20 minutes, I was asked to lie on the treatment bed face down with the Zerona targeted on the middle back part of my body - lower back, buttocks and upper leg for another 20 minutes to complete the 40 minute Zerona cold laser treatment.

After my Zerona treatment, I have to change to my work-out clothes and follow a 10 minute work-out on video together with my personal fitness facilitator.  You'd think a 10 minute work-out would be easy but the ones they have were actually quite challenging to do. 

After my 10-minute work-out, I'd stand on this machine and do 10-minute Vibrafit exercises.

You must hold on to the handle bars, this machine shakes your entire body for a whole 10 minutes.

For the entire Laserfit Program, you must follow a diet which is a 7 inch diet plate recommendation divided into 1/4 portion carbs, 1/4 portion protein and 1/2 plate greens.

Now, it's the moment of truth.  I was a little anxious about the results because my entire session was held during the busy and party-filled months of December (food everywhere) to January.  But after 6 sessions of Laserfit, they measured my entire body again so that I can see how many inches I've lost.  Adding all the inches lost per body part, I lost a total of 14.7 inches off my entire body after the Laserfit program. 

The price per session of my Laserfit program is P6,500 per session, for 6 sessions it costs P39,000.  Some would probably say that it's a bit costly, but for me, I guess you can't put a price tag on your own health.  If a program can help you lose weight safer and faster then it would totally be worth it.
