Chicagoland Fat Loss Camps -

South Holland

Started out of a need for change

Jackie was referred by a friend in OKC that noticed she was severely depressed after losing her dad. At her heaviest weighing 215 lb.  Jackie gained 30 lbs in 8 months.  While on a business trip to Paris, Jackie passed out in flight which was a wake up call.  Although never learning a clear reason why flight incident happened,  it got her attention.  While working a very demanding schedule, Jackie's first Garza 6 Week Fat Loss Challenge was done totally online. Due to her desire and commitment, Jackie lost 50 lbs in eight months in 2016 ALL FROM HOME OR HOTELS!

After having some success online, I started praying to God for a way to open a camp in South Florida but instead we found a few months later in South Holland.  My mom Gwendolyn de Lepine, sister Angela and business partner Nakia Samuels with help from my husband Rick, we opened our first camp in June 2017.  Our first 6 Week Challenge had 35 Challengers which we were very excited to have join the Travis Garza's 6 Week Fat Loss Challenge; we know it would be life changing.  In the is six months of business the South Holland camp went from 35 to over 500 new members which lead to opening of the second camp located on the city's South side at 9406 S. Perry Chicago, IL.

Due to the success of the Travis Garza's 6 Week Fat Loss Challenge program and a outstanding family focused camp culture, Chicagoland Fat Loss Camps currently has 6 locations (Bolingbrook, Chicago, Lansing, Matteson, Oaklawn, South Holland))in the Chicagoland area and our NEW location opening soon in Atlanta, GA. (Riverdale).


We celebrate our member's success because they are family. Our family continues to grow with hard work, dedication and encouragement.
