Getting into Shape

by VIVE Katerin Staff on July 20, 2013

It's mid-January and by now, many of us have let our New Year's resolution of hitting the gym go by the wayside. Maintaining the motivation to keep going to the gym and running on the treadmill or using the nautilus machines can be difficult when doing it alone. For many, the repetition seems boring and the results we hoped for seem to slower to acheive than expected.

If your lucky enough to live in the Hartford, CT area, then you may be able to enroll in the female only, small group sessions of Lori Ann Marchese of Body Construct. Lori Ann is professional bikini and fitness model who has won numerous awards and has been featured on the covers of several magazines. Lori Ann got into fitness and wellness in her late teenage years and made it a way of life. She founded Body Construct as a way to help other women to lose weight, shed pounds and build strength as well as confidence. Lori Ann provides her students with intense, yet varied workout sessions that combine strength conditioning and cardio exercise. She also coaches them on the proper diet for building a toned and lean body, while eating enough to not feel hungry and want to cheat on the diet.

VIVE Katerin visited Lori Ann's Body Construct studio - located in the basement to maintain privacy for the women - no men allowed! We had the chance to look in on one of her training sessions as well as interview her and a few of her students. Check out the VIVE Katerin video below.
