IN-BODY ANALYSIS

Measuring your body composition.  The InBody will look further than the number on the scale and show you what your body is really made of.

How does it work?

The in-body shows us how you are build and help us select the best fitness plans to your specific needs.  It displays a visual representation of your data and history that is both motivational and easy to read.

Measures amounts of percentages of fat, muscle and water throughout the body and analysis lean and fat mass of 5 different regions in the body.  Then it will provide us with a single page result.  It will give us accurate analysis every time, resulting in correct treatment recommendations.

What is Electro Muscle Stimulation?

Electro muscular stimulation is a form of stimulating muscles using light painless, electric impulses.  Just as our central nervous system sends electrical impulses to control our muscle action, electro muscle stimulation replicates this natural process, sending electrical impulses to muscles from the purpose of burning fat and strengthening muscles in our bodies.  However with EMS treatments the process can be intensified, reaching deeper muscle layers which are difficult to activate through conventional exercise.

A standard Slim Active Slimming course comprises of 2 x 45 minute sessions per week, over a 4 week period with 8 treatments per month.  Every 45 minute treatments results in the equivalent toning and firming normally attained by up to 6 hours of physical exercise.  The treatment improved over blood circulation resulting in the strengthening of the heart, and it also eliminates fatty deposits and toxins by improving the working of the lymphatic glands.

STRENGTHENING OF CORE ABDOMINAL MUSCLES

EMS therapy involuntarily activates your core and abdominal muscles

CORRECTION OF MUSCULAR IMBALANCES

Exercises antagonistic muscle group and the core muscles simultaneously.

EXERCISING WHICH IS EASY ON THE JOINTS PREVENTING STRAIN AND INJURY

No weight loaded added and strengthens your stabilizer and mobilize muscles to support your skeletal structure and joints

INCREASING OVERALL STRENGTH AND ENDURANCE

Deep muscular training offers an increase in speed, strength and power due to anaerobic fast muscle activation

IMPROVEMENT OF YOUR POSTURE

Every major muscle group gets activated simultaneously , strengthening the body as a whole

REDUCTION IN CELLULITE

With the Slim Active Computerized EMS slimming machine we use a frequency that breaks down cellulite cells very effectively by effectively breaking down the collagen build up which causes the orange peel like appearance

RELIEF OF BACK PAINS

By strengthening the stabilizing and mobilizing muscles we have a very high success rate in relieving lower back pains.

45 MIN EQUALS 6 HOURS OF CONVENTIONAL STRENGTH TRAINING

Due to every major muscle group being activated at the same time every 5 seconds, you get a lot more contractions and muscle trained than conventional training

INCREASES LYMPHATIC FLOW

With reducing the toxins your body you have a much better energetic and healthy feeling

FIRMS AND TONES FLABBY MUSCLES

With the Slim Active Computerized EMS Computer your muscles are making 25 contractions within one minute, therefore it shortens and tightens flabby muscles and decreases your centimeters on your body.  A total of up to 90cm can be expected in a 4 week course

TREATMENTS ARE PERFORMED IN A PRIVATE CUBICLE WITH A RELAXED ATMOSPHERE

While the Slim Active Computerized EMS slimming machine does the work for you, you can relax and get the workout without the sweat and strain.

Detoxifying the body promotes weight loss

WHAT IS THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?

The lymphatic system is the secondary system of circulation in the body with a very complex set of tasks. The major tasks are cleaning and nourishing the cells. 

Sounds simple enough, but without it, we wouldn’t survive long. The lymphatic system is a sort of go-between from the blood circulation to the individual cells.

Lymph is a clear fluid containing nutrients and oxygen similar to blood but without the red and white corpuscles. It comes from the general circulation and is deposited around the cells to keep them nourished. 

The cells are able to discard waste and toxic materials into this fluid.  The lymphatic vessels pick up this waste and any excess fluid from around cells and transport it, via the lymph nodes which filter it, back into the general circulation.  It’s a one-way shuttle, so lymph should only ever flow in one direction – away from the cells and towards the heart.

WHAT IS LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE?

Reasons for Poor Lymphatic Flow

Poor lifestyle choices are the commonest causes of an inefficient lymphatic system, though they are certainly not the only ones.

  • Lack of exercise – lymphatic fluid needs muscle power to push it round the body
  • Poor diet – may increase congestion and produce more waste for the lymph to pick up and dispose of
  • Pollutants – environmental and dietary
  • Surgery and trauma
  • Pregnancy

MAJOR BENEFITS OF LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

  • Skin care:
    For a clearer complexion and to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in facial tissue, as well as reducing puffiness around the eyes.
    Old scar tissue can be reduced while the appearance of new scars can be minimized. It’s commonly used before and after cosmetic surgery.
  • Detox:
    At the end of winter, or after a period of high stress, the body will really benefit from lymphatic drainage, to reduce the sluggishness brought on by too many starchy, high fat foods and too little exercise.
  • Headache:
    Most headaches including sinusitis have a component of congestion that responds well to   lymphatic drainage.   Once tissue is decongested, blocked fluid and blood flow improve, reducing pain and discomfort.
  • Promote healing:
    After surgery or injury, the tissue may be swollen and sore. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle treatment that will help drain the tissue, reduce inflammation and improve healing.
  • Pregnancy and after:
    There is often fluid retention in pregnant women and lymphatic drainage can improve comfort especially in legs and feet.  Breast feeding will be enhanced by this treatment, especially when there are problems with blocked ducts and sore tight breasts.
  • Reduce swelling:
    After long periods of immobility such as air travel or lessened mobility, fluid tends to stagnate in the tissue making it puffy and tender.
    Conditions such as arthritis often have joints that are congested with fluid. All of these respond well when fluid is reduced with lymphatic drainage.
  • Relaxation:
    Because it is such a gentle treatment, it is one of the most relaxing.  And the relaxation is enhanced as the cleansing and rejuvenating effects relieve stress.

Most people will notice improvements in their level of well-being after a treatment because lymphatic drainage has so many benefits.  Keep yourself looking and feeling in tip-top condition with a regular treatment.

There are no calorie counting or worrying about complicated meals.  Slim Active provides a detailed easy to follow meal plan which introduces you to a healthy nutritionally balanced lifestyle that will not only enable you to lose weight but give you a whole new lease on life.  The meal plan is livable, affordable and flexible enough to fit any lifestyle providing you with a variety of foods to choose from.  After you have done your body analysis, the correct meal plan will be suggested to you according to your medical history and or current medication that you are on.

An average weight loss of 8kg can be expected on a 4 week weight loss program.

 What can fat dissolving injections do for you?

One of the methods that we use for contouring is Lipolysis. Lipolysis is a fat dissoving injection.

Lipolysis, a safe, VERY EFFECTIVE and gentle method to sculpt targeted regions of your body.

‘Lipo’ means fat and ‘lysis’ means dissolving; so, Lipolysis is a term used to describe the process of dissolving fat by means of injection with a fat dissolving solution –  into resistant fatty deposits. This procedure results in the permanent rupture of fat cells and circumference reduction of the treated areas.

Many years of extensive experience throughout Europe and America has shown this to be a very safe and effective way of removing small unwanted fat pockets from any stubborn areas.

Smaller areas like bra-bulges, fat pockets around the knees and arms can also be performed. Intra-cutaneous & mesodermal micro injections can also break down cellulite as well as improve skin texture.

How does it work? 

The treatment is performed by specially trained professionals and involves micro injections with very fine needles with a non-medical product, directly into the unwanted fat deposits.

The active ingredients are Phosphatidylcholine (PPC), a component of Soy Lecithin, which may have the ability to emulsify fat. Lecithin could prevent the body from storing fat in the targeted regions and may improve the fat burning capacity of the body.

The second component is Deoxycholate (DC)a saline solution (salt solution) that keeps PPC in a soluble state. We believe that during application, active substances lead to the damaging of the fat cells making their membranes permeable, allowing the outpouring of their contents into the interstitial fluid surrounding the fat cells. Transportation takes place via the lymphatic system, therefore the need to drink a lot of water. The fat is broken down into a soluble form and removed by normal liver and kidney function.

The   difference comes into play due to the fact that we add a non medical cocktail of herbs and seaweed that may speedup fat metabolismgeneral metabolism and movement of the emulsified fat into the lymphatic system. It is necessary to emphasise that this procedure is not an alternative to a healthy diet or exercise, but helps to target areas not easily affected by regular exercise and dieting.

Product  is made up of:

Phosphatidylcholine (PPC):
May damage the membrane of the fat cells in the treated zone, dissolving the fats and expelling the toxins.

Making the membrane permeable
Leading to the outpouring of the dissolved contents into interstitial fluid surrounding the fat cells.

Deoxycholate (DC) saline:
Keeps PPC in a soluble state.

Scientific Definition of Cellulite

“Toxic Oedemantous FibroSclerotic SuperficialPanniculitis”
Inflammation of the subcutaneous adipose tissue

Understanding Cellulite

CELLULITE FORMATION:

Cellulite is a condition where fat cells push through the connective tissue beneath the skin.
The subcutaneous laver of fat lies below the skin on top of a layer of fascia ( fascia is a collagen-based sheet of connective tissue.) There are vertical, fibrous cords connecting the fascia to the skin. There are also arteries and veins running through this superficial fat layer. When the structure of this superficial layer becomes disturbed (via inflammation, estrogen, aging, trauma, edema, oxidative stress, decreased blood flow, fat cell enlargement ) the fascia, fibrous cords, skin, and fat cells lose the organised structure.

Contributing Factors of Structural Changes:

Disturbance of energy homeostasis IN THE BODY is regulated by the chronobiology (BIOLOGICAL RYTHMS) of adipocytes through the mechanisms of lipogenesis and lipolysis.

1.
INCREASED LIPOLYSIS AND DECREASED ADIPOGENESIS

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Significantly enhances the synthesis of the coenzymes involved in the anabolic process of reducing adipose tissue. Increased synthesis of these energy transporting coenzymes, NAD and NADP, increases lipolysis by increasing the oxidation of adipose tissue.

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Has an inhibitory effect on adipogenesis and down regulates the expression of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) and other transcription factors implied in the expression of genes involved in the development of pre adipocytes into adipocytes. 

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Mobilizes fat stores from white adipose tissue aids in the hydrolysis of triglycerides and free fatty acids to the mithochondria of the cell for the production of ATP.

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Stimulates cell metabolism and actively promotes the hydrolysis of triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, thus reducing adipose storage. This is particularly useful in the cellulitis phenomenon where, due to an alteration of the microcirclation, adipocytes are stimulated to synthesize and accumulate higher amounts of triglycerides, resulting in an increase of the cell size.

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Increases lipolysis by inhibiting the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase, which is responsible for catalysing the conversion of cyclic AMP to AMP. The resulting high tissue concentrations of cyclic AMP activate inactive hormone-sensitive lipase and promote lipolysis.

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Glaucine in CELLUWAY TRIPLEX
is a molecule capable of stimulating lipolysis and inhibits the emergence of the new fat cells. This results in a visible reduction of the appearance of “orange-peel skin” and restoration of the skin’s firmness. 

2.
INCREASED LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE, DETOXIFICATION AND DECREASES INFLAMMATION:

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

The cleansing action of CELLUWAY TRIPLEX stimulates the lymphatic system, reducing the volume of fluid built up in the subcutaneous tissue. The powerful antioxidant effect of CELLUWAY TRIPLEX prevents oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

Blocks NFK-B signalling and pro inflammatory mediators thereby reducing inflammation.  

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX

CELLUWAY TRIPLEX COCKTAIL, working in perfect synergy with CELLUWAY TRIPLEX ENHANCE, contains YOHOMBINE that improves circulation, drains the body’s fat cells and tightens and tones the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Lizel

I am 67 years old and joined Slim Active with my daughters to encourage them. I am so delighted as I have gone down two dress sizes and have lost 21 cm’s on my hips alone. I will continue until I have reached my goal weight, and my daughters are also doing very well. I am feeling so well and energetic – thank you Christa!

I am 31 years old and I’ve had several weight “ups” and “downs” during my life. Yo-yo dieting and all other kinds of dieting worked for a short time, but I was never able to make them long lasting lifestyle habits.  All changed when I joined Slim Active at the right time for the right reasons.
