At Lbf, we specialize in fun and challenging workouts using practical “equipment” while focusing on skill development and efficiency of fundamental human movements. We work one-on-one in a semi-private environment, but also train at the Hill, the beach, the sand dunes, the park, etc. What kind of equipment do we have? The answer is nothing you’re accustomed to seeing in your average gym, but everything that translates well into the “real world.” For example, at the LbF studio we utilize Kettlebells, Balance Beams, Ropes of all kinds and purposes, Suspension Equipment (USA, Jungle Gym), Sandbags, Heavy Ropes, Slosh Tubes, Heavy Bag and Gloves, Balance Board, Parallettes, rock climbing holds, a huge heavy tire, monkey bars, a cargo net, a ring traverse, and more!
Meet our Trainers!
Ryan is a has-been athlete/ironman/personal trainer turned Primal. In March 2009, he stumbled across an article that rocked his world. After reading (and re-reading) this convincing piece, he reduced his training significantly, altered his eating style, and became healthier and fitter than ever. Now he only does fun events (at least to him) and short races and devotes much less time to “the grind” of endurance sports. His current focus is to engage in creative and enjoyable workouts, and allocate more time for recreation and relaxation.
Laurie, aka the First Laidy, is a hairstylist in Providence who maintains a healthy and sexy body without much exercise at all! Although her adaptation to primal living was somewhat forced upon her when she moved into the cave, she embraced the food aspect and became very involved in preparing meals. You’ll (occassionally) see Laurie at a kettlebell class, but will mostly read about her delicious recipes, as well as gear reviews, tips for grocery shopping, and more!
Dave Decamp weighed 333 lbs in the Summer of 2011. At the time he was taking 7 different medications and was dealing with: Type 2 Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, and Acid Reflux. Like many people, he had already tried several different diets, weight loss programs, personal trainers, dieticians, gym memberships, and anything else that sounded like it would work.
After losing about 40 lbs, Dave hit a plateau in the fall of 2011 and was looking for a solution. It was then he met Ryan and was introduced to the paleo/primal philosophy. After a bit of skepticism, Dave adopted this lifestyle and immediately began losing more weight! Since the winter of 2011/12 Dave lost another 50lbs, and got off all his medications! Currently his blood pressure and blood sugar levels are normal, his sleep apnea is non-existent, and he no longer deals with the discomfort of acid reflux! As of July 2012 Dave’s weight is down to 248 lbs and he has completed 3 Tough Mudders, including a “Double Mudder” weekend at Tough Mudder New England #2!
Dave is happily married to his beautiful wife, Maureen, and has three wonderful stepchildren. With their new bodies and increased energy levels, he and Maureen (who has lost 25lbs since the winter of 2011/12) now spend their time outside being part of the world rather than watching other people live their lives on television.
Bottom line: helping people is our passion! We consider ourselves successful if/when we help people feel good and attain the ability and/or confidence to do what they never thought possible. Whether that be place in a road race, hike to the top of a mountain, swim across a bay, score more goals for your over-30 (or 40, 50…) soccer team, or simply be able to do yard work again; the human body can do it! It’s the brain that may need some instructions and a little motivation!
