I love everything about this place. Faculty is amazing and friendly! My fiance, mom, and I have been going here since March 6th 2013 to lose weight for the wedding in April 2014. My fiance has lost over 50 lbs, my mom has lost 40 lbs and I have lost 50 lbs. I never thought I would actually have a chance to look healthy and amazing for the up-coming wedding, but Metabolic has made it possible! I highly recommend them to everyone I know!
