If you are thinking of joining Amerefit, RUN! This has been the worst experience for me. I bought the 12 month program because at the time they only offered 6 or 12 month options. This included metabolic testing, nutrition sessions and 52 personal training sessions. Also an armband which is an activity/ calorie tracker. However, what sold me was this was supposed to be personalized and cater to your body. I NEVER received anything more than a cookie cutter standard diet plan and told to buy their supplements. When I wasn't losing the weight, not once did they ever try to adjust my diet. They did offer more testing and ways for me to spend more money. I was told the doctors met weekly to review EACH patients chart and that they were constantly communicating to personalize the program so that people were successful! NOT TRUE!!! I broke down and paid for a cortisol test. I had to call twice for the results. Finally one of the doctors called me back. Gave me a list of over $200 worth of vitamins to order from Amazon! That was 3 months ago....never heard from him again! I found out they closed their gym location and ended the personal training sessions. I did not find out because they called me because that would be how a professional business operated. No, I found out through word of mouth. They actually had a client show up for her scheduled time and the doors were locked. At least they weren't playing favorites and we all got the same unprofessional behavior. Since my contact is not up and I have not used all of my training sessions, I called for a refund. After spending $3588 for this program and only using approximately 12-15 of the training sessions, I was told I would get $108 back. What a joke! I also asked for a breakdown of how the original $3588 was spent and a breakdown of how the refund would be calculated. Not only did I not see the breakdown, Dr. yen refused to even acknowledge my email. The lack of communication at the so called business is ridiculous. At this rate, not only will they close the gym doors, but the entire business. They are full of talk and no action other than to offer ways for toy to spend more money.I am in the process of going above Dr, Yen to get a realistic refund. they broke their contract and I should be refunded. I guarantee that if i didn't follow through with the contract they would expect to keep my money. I dont see how they can ethically treat their clients this way and expect to have a growing, successful business. I would actually give them negative stars if possible! RUN, RUN, RUN!
I joined Red Circle Nov 2012 - 8 months ago. I have only lost 9 lbs. I went to the location last Monday and there was a notice from the landlord and the doors were locked - no notice to their clients. They have discontinued the best part of the program - the personal trainers. This is just a basic low carb diet - the same diet I have been on for years - nothing special.
I started Red Circle in July 2012 and lost 10 pounds almost immediately. I signed up for the one year program and I'm so glad I did. I was sick of the guess work of trying to diet on my own. I have an extremely jammed work schedule but I go to Red Circle every week, without fail because I see consistent results. I'm still losing weight (more slowly now so it will stay off - thank you, Josh and Kayla) and I'm gaining muscle so my body composition is changing for the better. My clothes fit better and I even pulled some things out of the donation bag that I thought I would never fit in again! Bonus. My BMI is the best it's been in years and I know I'm getting healthier - I just feel better. I learned how to eat based on MY body (thank you Kayla, Sarah, Dr. G and Suzi) and they have plenty of tools and support to keep you on track. I get my B12 shot (thank you, Nicole) and weigh-in with a full body composition reading so I can SEE my success on paper.
I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Voss location. The staff at this location are stellar. They really want to see you win, they keep it simple and they really go the extra mile for their clients. I'm half way through my year and I'm exactly halfway to my goal.... excellent program.
Best Weight Loss Program By Far!!! – I started red circle about 5 months ago right before my wedding and realized that I should have come a lot sooner. They did a metabolic test on me that told me where most of my problems lie and even did a genetic test that showed me what concerns I can face from my gene pool (lol) and how to work around that. Suzi was great at helping me to set up meal plans and guide me through the toughest of times and always kept my moral boosted! Speaking of boosted I was even able to receive metaboost and B-12 shots that really helped to get me kick started! I lost over 25 lbs in time for my wedding and still continue to go the the awesome trainer that they provided for me and feel better than ever! I would highly recommend Red Circle and the awesome service that they provide in helping you get where you want to get and maintain that healthy feeling! Red Circle Rocks!
Successful Life-Style Weight Loss Program – Red Circle is a life style program that really works! The staff takes an all-around analysis of you to decide what works best for weight loss. My body was a little reluctant and was very comfortable with where it was on the scale, but with the help of the Staff, we were able to figure a way that got me out of my rut and has really changed my body. I am half way to my goal weight (haven't been there in 5 years) and am excited to see how my body is changing each day!
If you are looking for a lifestyle change and want to work for results, this is a great company to help you get there.
Finally! A weight loss program that brings it all together – I was a little skeptical at first but once I learned how complete their program was during my initial consult, I decided to try it out. I was impressed by how much medical testing they did. Not only did they measure the expected (weight, body composition, blood pressure), they also ran blood tests, a genetic test that showed what type of food I should be eating to lose weight and keep it off, and even scanned my neck arteries for look for plaque buildup.
Now that I'm about 4 weeks into the program, I'm very pleased with the program they developed for me because I've continued to lose weight every week (3-5 pounds per week). My blood pressure is coming down without meds and I'm feeling better than ever.
The coaches at Red Circle call themselves e-coaches, I'm guessing because they are always texting or emailing me. They've really helped me to stick to my plan. I know myself well enough to know that I need the outside motivation to keep me from slipping up.
One final thing, they also offer foods like power bars and meal replacement shakes. I really like the chocolate caramel bars. Great mid-afternoon snack!
Best Program By Far! – I have tried diets after diets and even tried the same diets twice. I'm glad I sought out help. It's not easy to do this on your own. I knew I wasnt doing something right. Because why would I still not loose weight. Well Red Circle did testing and come to find out I have a Thyroid problem. Now that its regulated ! My personalized Diet plan and Trainer have helped me achieve amazing results. And I was on the verge of thinking all diets are all the same and I would just have to learn to live that way. I'm Glad I Gave REDCIRCLE a chance!
Best weight management program ever! – I am thoroughly impressed by the RedCircle program. Most other programs are cookie-cutter regimens which are not individualized at all - a one size fits all kind of approach. At RedCircle, I was thoroughly evaluated by a dozen or so medial devices, right from the get-go, to find out exactly in what shape my body was and what kind of a weight management plan I would respond to. The measurements ranged from evaluating my cardiovascular health to my body composition and metabolic rate. From that point onwards, they created a 'me-specific' (sic) plan that was designed specifically to help me reach my goals. It was extremely tailored and individualized to fit my needs. I always got the feeling that the program wasn't about my immediate weight loss but a change in life style. This is the best strategy as I read somewhere that 90% of the people regain the weight they lost after getting off the program. I firmly believe that the habits that I've picked up over the last couple of months with this program, and the tools that I've been equipped with by RedCircle, will help me keep off the weight for life! Of course, health is a welcome byproduct of an ideal weight and nutrition control - and they are monitoring my health at regular intervals as well. My goal was to lose 25 lbs and I'm already down 16 lbs in under 2 months. You should expect an average weight loss of around 2lbs per week. Although initially, you achieve a faster weight loss but it starts to taper down as the body gets adjusted to the new routine.
Anyway - I recommend this program for anybody who is serious about their weight gain/loss and health. You have to be mentally ready to submit to the guidance of the coaches and stick to the prescribed program for all of it to work otherwise you'll be wasting everybody's time and money, not only yours. The coaches are extremely dedicated and take personal interest and pride in helping you reach your goals - but again, if you don't follow the instructions, you'll have partial results. And to reiterate, the best part of the RedCircle program is that you gain life long habits that help you stay healthy and maintain your ideal weight for good!
Give it a shot!
Great Experince, Life Changing – Great People helping you along through the entire process! They are so knowledgable and Encouraging!
I'v lost a Great amount of weight Thanks to there Encouragement. All other diets I have tried did not offer anything nearly compared to what Red Circle does. Thank You Red Cricle for customizing a plan to fit me :)
I finally have control of my body! – Redcircle doesn't even compare to any other weight loss program out there. I'm losing weight, toning up, and having fun doing it! I love how my body is changing in front of my eyes. The staff keeps me accountable to my goals and genuinely cares about my progress. I’ve done other programs before and felt like their best interest is for me to keep weight on so I will continue to be reliant on their supplements, but I now feel in control of my body after completing my Redcircle program. I’ve never felt this way before. Thank you, Redcircle staff!
