Blast that mummy tummy away–without leaving your home
No excuses now, with Happy Ongpauco-Tiu’s personal training sessions where the trainer brings all the equipment to your place and monitors your weight
After I slaved away at the beginning of the year to get beach body-ready, all I want to do now is sleep, eat ramen and not work out. Having babies takes a toll on your body as it expands and changes, and getting older with each baby makes the slimming process all the more challenging.
Even after losing all that weight and then some, our skin quality is no longer the same as it was, and bits of fat just won’t move without some extra help.
For busy people
I heard about Slim At Home from an old colleague who told me that it was the latest venture of Happy Ongpauco-Tiu, a beautiful entrepreneur and mother I had met several years ago when she first opened the Boutique Hotel in Tagaytay.
After having children and running several businesses, Happy found herself in the predicament many career women find themselves in.
“I am in the food business, so that makes it difficult to go on a diet, especially with all the food development and the food tasting I have to do,” she says. “With all my businesses and personal obligations, I do not have the time to exercise regularly or enroll in a slimming clinic. Hence, I conceptualized this business to cater to busy people like me who, despite the lack of time, still care about staying slim and fit.”
Happy is so dedicated to her new business that customers can text her directly for any questions.
Slim At Home offers a holistic approach to slimming. Treatments need to be done in combination with a proper diet and exercise regimen. It offers personal training sessions in the comfort of your own home, where a trainer brings all the equipment and monitors your weight. That means no excuses now!
I tried some of the services such as the Lipocavitation. It works by using ultrasonic energy to heat the dermis and tighten the deeper layers of skin while helping initiate the production of
collagen. It’s used to target fat cells in specific areas such as arms, inner and outer thighs, hips, calves, upper and lower abdomen pocket fats and cellulites.
“During exercise, the body burns fats,” explains Happy. “It is through ultrasonic technology that the hard fat eventually becomes soft fat, which in turn makes it easier to metabolize in time. It is the muscles that become firm through exercise and not the fat. After the treatment, it is normal that the fat cells are eliminated through body excretions such as urine.”
After the lipocavitation, the therapist did the Thermaslim Radio Frequency treatment on me, which she said would help dissolve fat further.
Another treatment, Cryo Therapy, is a noninvasive treatment that uses below-zero-degree temperature to tighten the skin, which is then infused with rejuvenating serums. It freezes fats in targeted areas, causing the fats to crystallize. About 20 to 25 percent of the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way, eventually draining out from the body through metabolism.
Slim At Home also offers Cryo Facial to rejuvenate tired skin, as well as Theralift, which also uses radio frequency technology to stimulate the formation of collagen to tighten and renew skin.
