I am an endurance athlete (cycling and running) and focused on improving recovery (not weight loss), but was recommended to come here. I was amazed that, after just one short visit, I had a in-depth picture of my body composition health and immediate recommendations for improvement. Small changes in my eating habits, working on flexibility, and adding some nutritional supplements are my new goals. Weekly visits over the next few months will track my progress and keep me motivated to sustain the change.
Huge thanks to superstar Vanessa for her warm greeting and knowledgeable instruction. Clearly an expert in this field, and an endurance athlete herself. Highly recommended!

I've been on their program for about 7 weeks now and have lost 23 lbs - heading for 58. I find the food to be tasty and the structure around eating to be easy to follow. Additionally, the encouragement from the excellent staff in Ashburn make the weekly weigh-ins something to look forward to.

EMP 180 helped me accomplish my goal of a 20 pound weight loss within a short several weeks time. My consultant (Kim Spivack) was very professional and caring throughout. I highly recommend the EMP 180 weight loss program to anyone needing a successful plan. Thank you EMP!!!

I just started the EMP 180 program on Saturday, January 11th and have seen great results already. The staff has always been very helpful!

I write this review a little more than one year after I met my goal weight and “graduated.” Everyone at EMP180 really cared and supported me in my journey. (Big shoutout to Kim Spivack at the Potomac and Rockville locations!). I could not have done it without their support, knowledge and commitment to my success. The estimate provided of how long it would take me to meet my goal weight was on the nose. I followed the program faithfully. Most important for those of us that find it challenging to maintain a weight loss: EMP180’s support does not end at graduation. Critically, EMP180 gave me the tools needed to maintain my success and has continued to provide support long after my graduation. I have benefited from EMP180’s aftercare. I still go for regular weigh-ins and meet with a counselor for continuing guidance. It’s a great service and I encourage all graduates to take advantage of this benefit! They’ve gotten me back on track more than once without judgment. Just lots of positive reinforcement and genuine care for me.

I've lost 35 pounds in 4 months and could not have done it without the positive weekly support I recieved. The food was good and always had plenty of it. I like the opportunity to check in once one meets their goal. All the staff are very supportive and professional in all they do. Couldn't be happier and look forward to the opportunity to maintain my weight and knowing that I will always have a backup team to support me.

The system really works. You eat their food and make a healthy dinner and the weight comes off. The staff is very knowledgeable and explains your loss is detail

EMP180 in the Ashburn location is an awesome and supportive organization that really helped me through my weight loss journey - both from a nutrition perspective as well as an emotional perspective. Each counselor I have worked with over the past 4 months have been friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive with helpful tips on any adjustments that were needed for my personalized plan. I was able to follow the program easily (even with work travel) and exceed my weight loss goal in the timeframe outlined on day 1. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to start and maintain healthy eating habits for a more energized and healthy life.

I reached my goal in 6 weeks. In those 6 weeks, I can't tell you how much I've learned about my body and proper nutrition. I had been doing everything wrong. I didn't have a lot of weight to lose but none of it was coming off. It turns out I was way more focused on exercise than nutrition. Proper nutrition and understanding what you are really lacking is so key. EMP180's consultation is really in-depth and then every week you check in and find out the tiny adjustments you need to make in order to reach your health goal. It was life changing for me. Also, I learned and this was one of the biggest things....I learned that once you stop eating certain foods, you stop craving them. I had no idea this was possible. I don't like to give up anything to be honest (part of my problems) but since I gave certain foods up for just 6 weeks, I don't even want them anymore. I had no idea this was possible. Plus I did this over the holidays -- the hardest time to do this. Anyway, I would highly recommend this program. Now I've graduated and I can continue to go back for nutrition guidance for life. No other program does that. The nutrition coaches - most of them have exercise backgrounds too so you do end up getting consulting on exercise as well. I rate them 10 Stars! But I can only give them 5.
