Working out on the Minus Calories Machine at Active Hive
Many of my friends have wondered how I lost so much weight just a month after delivery. I put on a total of 10 kg during my pregnancy and I lost about 6 kg in a week and after about six weeks, I was back to my pre pregnancy weight.
Losing weight is not as difficult as it seems. It is about adopting the right approach. I went for a series of post-natal massages (I will elaborate more about the massages in another blog post), exercise classes and the 30 minutes Active Hive Minus Calories Workout. After delivery, it is vital to have a healthy and nutritious diet. I do not recommend going on diet or starving yourself as it causes extreme fatigue and is detrimental to your health.
The Minus Calories Machine
When I was invited to try the Active Hive Minus Calories Workout, I accepted the invitation without hesitation as I was eager to shed the extra pounds I have gained so that I can go back to work looking fit and trim again. Active Hive Minus Calories Workout is a 30-minute workout which helps to burn calories faster and more efficiently than other exercise programmes and weight loss methods. In fact, you can burn over 500 calories in just 30 minutes! What is most amazing is that the Minus Calories Machine not only burns fats, it also uses infrared and ionised Air Technology to increase blood circulation, boost your metabolism, eliminate toxins, stimulate collagen production, shape the body and reduce pains and body aches due to rheumatism and arthritis.
Active Hive's 7Rs Approach
This machine is only available at Active Hive – a fitness and wellness centre that emphasies on a 7Rs approach which includes Responsible, Right Exercise, Right Consideration, Right Nutrition, Right Effort, Right Balance and Rest. Active Hive is not a commercialised fitness centre where you can go for cardio classes and gym workouts. It focuses on a personalised one-to-one approach where a special programme is customised to suit your needs.
I went for a total of five sessions and after every session, I felt energised and rejuvenated. During my first session, the staff, Nikki did a body composition analysis for me. She took my height and weight and my measurements and produced a printout indicating my body fat percentage, bone mass, muscle mass, metabolic age and visceral fat rating. After the body analysis, I was brought to a small room with the Minus Calories Machine. It resembles a step machine just that it emits warm, infrared light. Initially, I was a little sceptical as I was expecting to have an intensive cardio session. Nevertheless, I went ahead to try it. Before the start of each workout, Nikki would apply the Anti-cellulite and Body Sculpt cream to my arms, thighs, tummy and chin. The cream is supposed to help to accelerate the fat burning process. It left a tingling sensation on my skin.
During the workout, I could catch up on my favourite drama on the tablet provided, and this helped to keep me entertained throughout the whole workout.
After about 10 minutes, I started to feel warm as the heat got more intense progressively. At the end of 32 minutes, I was perspiring profusely. I managed to burn over 600 calories during the first session. On the fifth session, my stamina increased and I burnt over 1000 calories. There is also a significant reduction in inches.
Enjoying rejuvenating juice after the workout
Somehow, after the workout, my skin seemed to look more radiant probably also because I was treated to a glass of rejuvenating fruit juice after each session. I like the concoction with apple, orange, celery and other veggies. I am satisfied with the overall results after the five sessions. I have lost two inches on my hips, one inch on my right thigh and 1.8 inches on the left thigh and 0.5 inch on each arm.
Active Hive Minus Calories Workout is perfect for busy people who are looking for a personalised, customised programme and have no time to go for exercise classes or spend long hours in the gym. It is effective and you can see significant results after a few sessions. Active Hive also sells health products such as chia seeds, quinoa, truffle olive oil and more.
