We have an amazing challenge for you!

But take caution: doing this exercise 200 times a day may put you at risk of having a bikini bottom by June. See picture below.

If you’re a Squatting Veteran, Squatting Rookie, or have had any trouble shaping your butt or legs and really tightening up, FEAR NOT! This is the perfect video for you.

Squats are one of the most popular exercises in the world and one of the ones most frequently done incorrectly. Although squats are considered to be a leg exercise, it’s really a full body movement that works almost every muscle group in the body. So whether your goal is to gain strength or lose weight, squats are one of the fastest ways to get there.

If this is the first time you’ve squatted, you might be intimidated about starting a new exercise. Don’t sweat it! Or rather..DO SWEAT IT! BUCK UP! We’re here to WORK! We’ll walk you through every step and make sure you’re doing everything correctly and getting the most out of your exercise! If you’re up to the challenge, do this exercise constantly, every day, and you will see the results you crave!

Remember: There’s only so much you can do on your own! Our fitness retreat specializes in intense, effective, and accurate techniques like this to get your body to absolute peak condition. These videos are part of the aftercare system you receive after completing our program at Fitness Retreat camp. Take your health and fitness to the next level and join us at our facilities in Los Angeles!


Fitness Retreat

Ask Eric:  “Help! How can I get control of my life & my weight?” 

Ask Eric:  “Help!  I feel life swirling around me, but am unable to enjoy it or get control of it.  This has resulted in me being in a very unhealthy place with my weight and my health. How can I get control of my life and my weight so that I can be happy?”

This is a painful question that so many people are struggling with in their lives.  The feeling that you cannot have the things in your life that you most desire.  The reality is, that you absolutely can, and I am going to spend the next few weeks helping you to do just that…..get control of your life, your health and  your weight, so that you can achieve all of the things that you desire!  


You might be thinking, “Fighting Monsters?  Is this guy serious?”  Obviously fighting monsters is an analogy, because as you’ve been told from a very young age, there’s no such thing as monsters.  However, you were afraid of them, and that fear was very real, not to mention some of the actions you took to avoid them.  So, if the concept of fighting monsters seems silly to you, think of monsters as anything and everything that stands in the way of you achieving your life goals, as well as your fitness and weight loss goals.  And if, by some freak occurrence, we discover any real monsters along the way, we’ll mess them up, too.


If we’re going to be fighting monsters together, you probably want to know a little bit about the guy who will be fighting with you.  Specifically, what makes me a monster-fighting hero who can melt pounds off of you with superhuman mind powers?  Well, unfortunately for both of us, I’m not a superhero, and I can’t telekinetically make you thin, healthy and happy.  I’m just Eric Viskovicz, a regular guy who has battled some pretty fierce monsters over the years, including a debilitating stutter, a propensity for binge eating, and an 8-year-old monster named Bernard

I’m also a guy who loves what he does.  I love getting results.  I love seeing people happy and successful.  I love that people from all walks of life, including several elite athletes and celebrities, have turned to me to help them achieve their weight loss and fitness goals.  But mostly, I simply love that I’ve chosen a path (that I’m still on by the way) of self-reflection, self-honesty, dedication, discipline, and determination.  Because I’ve taken this path, I‘ve been rewarded with my beautiful partner in crime, Sarah, our three awesome children, and a successful fitness business that affords me the opportunity to do the one thing I love to do most: Help people like you.

Before we march off to battle, it’s important that I give you a little background on the L.I.F.E. Power System that we use at Fitness Retreat.  This is the formula for success that I’ve developed over the last couple of decades, and it works where other programs, fad diets, gimmicks, etc. don’t.  How?  It’s based on sound scientific principles, from nutrition science and kinesthetics to cognitive therapy and meditation techniques.  But the key to the system’s success is that we work from the inside out, moving from your thoughts to what you tell yourself, then ultimately to nutrition and exercise.  In other words, we’re going to kick the you-know-what out of the monsters that have been inside of you for years; we’re going to beat down those that dwell outside of you, and then we’re going to live a healthier, happier, fitter, fuller life.

Like you, every person I help, and have helped, is different.  They have different ages, genders, body types, shapes, sizes, and goals.   They also, like you, have a very distinct group of monsters that they have to face, and usually quite a few of them.  So many in fact, that instead of listing every possible monster you might encounter, I’m going to classify them into manageable groups:

The Monster Under the Bed – These are the monsters you can’t see or hear.

The Monster in the Attic – These are the ones you can hear, and the sounds, at times, are so frightening that they’re paralyzing.

The Monsters Inside You – These are specific to you.  They are born with you and will always be inside you.  These we’re not going to fight necessarily⎯ we’re going to tame them.

The Monsters Around the Corner – These show up on a daily basis and try to trip you up.  We are definitely fighting these!

 In the weeks to come we’ll delve into exactly who and what these monsters are and how we’re going to defeat them.  All right, it’s time to go kick some ass!  Don’t be scared… I have a battle plan and a whole bunch of sweet weapons.

Stay tuned Until Next week when we tackle our first monster, “The Monster Under the Bed”.  And if you are itching to get started and make the changes you need to make right now, check out our life changing program at Fitness Retreat and you will benefit from Private in Depth Sessions with Me where we will battle the monsters together!

What Can I Learn at A Fitness Camp?

Fitness camp is about more than just going on a vacation and coming back lighter. It’s an opportunity to learn the skills and information you need to live a healthy lifestyle.

Personalized Approach

On daytime health and wellness shows and internet ads you will routinely hear, “This one thing is the key to weight loss.” However, the truth is that there is no one secret to losing weight. Everyone is different and a personalized approach to losing weight is an essential component for success. A fitness camp like the Extreme Weight Loss Program at Live in Fitness begins with testing and interviews designed to get a picture of your goals, personality, and physical condition. A personalized plan is then created for your specific needs and preferences.

Following fitness programs that are “one-size-fits-all” often end in failure for one reason or another. Maybe it is difficult to stick to because it doesn’t recognize your behavioral uniqueness or maybe you aren’t seeing the results you want because it’s not tailored to your goals.

Accountability is Key

Working out at home with a video program can be good if you manage to stick with it, but that’s easier said than done. Life gets in the way. Work makes you too tired so you skip a day. You have a strong craving for a chocolate glazed donut so you decide to have a cheat day. Before you know it, you’re back to old habits. In any given moment, you are going to do what you want most and if nobody is there to encourage you, it’s difficult to stick to a fitness program.

At a fitness camp, you eat and exercise alongside peers with the same goals and professionals who know how to help you meet those goals. This clearly demonstrates the importance of accountability in weight loss and fitness in general. Once you complete the camp, you can take those principles and apply them at home. Work out with a friend or spouse. Find a gym buddy with similar goals.

Nutrition and Exercise Work Together

At the most basic level, nutrition is how calories come in and exercise is how they go out.  Paying attention to both is the best way to achieve your fitness goals. However, there is more to it than that. Exercise puts a strain on your body and drains you of energy but the right foods can answer the new demand for energy. The right nutrition plan can improve bone, muscle, and joint health to reduce the chance of injury. Heart healthy food can keep your cardiovascular system free from heart disease. If you really want to get into nutritional science, you can try foods that promote balanced brain chemistry to keep you focused and positive about your fitness goals.

How to Continue at Home

By learning about what fitness techniques work for you, the importance of a support system, and how diet and exercise work together, you can take the same ideas home with you. A good fitness camp will not only help you work towards your goals while you’re there, they will give you what you need to continue toward your goals.
