Weight loss studio celebrates success with name change

Samudra Weight Loss Health and Wellness has changed its name to Success Weight Loss.

Registered nurse Kristin Bjarnason is hosting an open house on June 27 to celebrate the change of her business’ name from Samudra Weight Loss Health & Wellness to Success Weight Loss.

Just how much is 15,200 pounds? Think 15 horses or nine old-school VW Beetles. It’s also the number of pounds that a Comox Valley weight loss studio has helped its clients drop since opening its doors just four years ago.

To commemorate that accomplishment, Samudra Weight Loss Health and Wellness has changed its name to Success Weight Loss. Past, present and future clients are invited to celebrate alongside owner Kristin Bjarnason and her team at a ‘Celebration of Name Change’ open house Saturday, June 27 from 1 to 4 p.m. at their Sixth Street location between Tulio’s and Atlas Café.

“We wanted a name that mirrored the growth and transformation of both our clients and our business,” says Bjarnason, a registered nurse and weight loss coach. “So we held a name-change contest with our clients, and Success Weight Loss was the winner.”

The new name couldn’t be more appropriate. Success Weight Loss offers a medically researched and designed program that employs an Ideal Protein diet in conjunction with personalized, supportive coaching that ensures clients meet their weight-loss goals. Bjarnason is proud that she and her team have helped so many people lose so much weight, and the nurse in her equally values the decreased blood pressure and blood sugar levels that come with that weight loss. In fact, that was what drew her to the program in the first place.

“I did the program myself and lost 25 pounds, but what I really liked was the healthy approach to losing weight. I just knew I had to share it with others. Not only is Ideal Protein scientifically proven to help with weight loss, our personal approach and motivation set us apart from other programs.”

Bjarnason notes that weekly meetings, regular body composition analyses, daily videos, goal-setting rewards and a one-year stabilization follow-up program ensure certain clients attain and maintain their targets.

Guests of the open house can sample foods made with Ideal Protein, share in clients’ stories and receive a free body composition analysis. Door prizes will be awarded. The first 10 visitors will receive $20 gift certificates. Guests are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to support the local food bank.

“Our name is changing, but our commitment to motivating, educating and inspiring others as they achieve their health and wellness objectives remains the same,” she says.

Call Bjarnason at 250-334-7008 for more information.
