Duration: 20-25 minutes
All sessions begin with private red light therapy body sculpting where we wrap your body in Contour Light wraps that are placed directly on your skin. Contour Light is clinically proven to target areas of fat, like the waist, hips, thighs, arms, and chin, that can be resistant to diet and exercise. The red lights, which are a form of low-level lasery therapy, are a safe and noninvasive way to liquify and deflate fat bubbles to support your weight loss and fitness goals.
In a double-blind study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, 67 volunteers were randomly assigned either low-level laser therapy or a matching sham treatment three times a week for two weeks. Those who received the real light treatment lost a combined 3.5 inches in their waist, hips, and thighs while the sham group did not.
A larger study of nearly 700 people, also published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, included six low-level laser therapy treatments over the course of two weeks and found participants lost more than 5 inches across their waist, hips, thighs, arms, knees, neck, and chest.
Another study published in the Journal of Obesity Surgery examined the impact of low-level laser therapy on 40 healthy men and women, who had their waistlines treated for 30 minutes twice a week for four weeks. Cumulative girth loss added up to about 2.15 centimeters and led to significant cosmetic improvements.
A study published in the International Journal of General Medicine, found that the combined impact of low-level laser therapy and moderate-intensity aerobic exercises improves the cognitive function and quality-of-life of Alzheimer’s patients. The results included a decrease in patient BMI and waist to hip ratio.
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Next, step on to our vibration plates to support your red light body sculpting session by flushing lymph fluid and fat cells from your body. The lymphatic system is a complex maze of ducts and nodes that drain toxins from the muscles while delivering antibodies to help fight disease, but it doesn’t have a pump, so it relies heavily on muscle activity to move the fluids. Using vibration plates gives the body a high-speed workout, which not only moves lymph out of your system, it also activates more muscles and, according to a 2009 study from the European Association for the Study of Obesity, can increase calorie burn by as much as 50 percent. Drinking lots of water and eating clean can further support the Red Lite Gym process.

Your Red Lite Gym session ends on the gym floor where you can do any workout you like. Our gym includes strength and cardio machines, a functional training area, as well as an app packed with workout videos and inspiration from our virtual trainer. Research shows pairing exercise with red light therapy is a crucial part of getting the weight loss results you’re after.
A study published in the journal of German Medical Science found that out of 40 overweight participants those that used red light therapy combined with moderate exercise and a healthy lifestyle lost fat and improved their body composition significantly more than the people who didn’t incorporate the light treatment.
Another pioneering study conducted several years later and published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine examined the impact of light therapy on women seeking to lose weight. It found more conclusive evidence that applying light therapy immediately after a training session led to a more substantial increase in fat loss than in participants who received a placebo treatment after exercising. It also found light therapy increased skeletal muscle mass and promoted positive changes in the metabolic profile.
Researchers have also demonstrated that red light therapy can prevent muscle soreness and improve performance, which means more workload capacity, fatigue resistance, and exercise recovery. One study found that athletes were able to perform nearly 30 percent more weighted leg extension reps and had significantly lower lactic acid levels after receiving just a couple of minutes of red light therapy.
