Health & Fitness

By Leslie Rice Hart

A training program, Buff Brides, offered at all New York Sports Clubs and their affiliates-Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington Sports Clubs, can help get you in great physical shape for the big day. The original concept comes from Buff Brides, the book by Sue Fleming.

Sue Fleming, fitness trainer and author, explains, “Brides-to-be are the most committed clients I’ve ever had. They’re motivated, they’re focused, they’re ready. In this society, we’ve been brought up to believe that the most important occasion of a woman’s life is her wedding. On that day, all eyes are on the bride.”

After all, if you don’t look and feel your best, none of the other components will matter. As it is, the planning stages for a wedding are already very stressful – why put yourself under more stress by not having help with this crucial aspect of the preparation? You have experts for everything else – location, food, invitations, flowers, cake. Consider your fitness trainer another imperative part of your wedding plan.

The training package doesn’t necessarily have to be for the bride, however. How about signing-up the parents of the bride and the groom, or the bridesmaids? Why stop there? In fact, anyone who needs to get in tip-top shape for a special event, in a short period of time, needs and can sign-up for this training program.

It is a twelve-week commitment that can truly transform a person’s physique. As part of the package, each client gets their own unique program and results. With perseverance and commitment, what you can accomplish is amazing. I’ve seen it happen time and time again. And you always have the option to start more than twelve weeks in advance and maintaining out your newly sculpted body.

Join the “Buff Bride Club” so you won’t look back at pictures of your big day with thoughts of “could have been”s and “would have been”s. What do you have to lose but some extra pounds!

Buff Brides packages are available at all New York Sports Club locations. The Sports Clubs offer a non-member buff brides package, as well. For twelve weeks the non-member has full access to the Sports Club’s facilities! Now you really have no excuses.

See the club manager or the fitness program manager of your local club for details, or call 888.412.2231 for more information.
