Beach Living in Panama for Just $1,000 a Month in an Up-and-Coming Haven InternationalLiving.com


Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 12, 2015

The town of Las Tablas on Panama’s Pacific Coast, is renowned for everything from colorful Carnival celebrations to artisanal textiles, pottery, and leatherwork. And beaches. Life in this sunny region of Panama is good , say the expats who, in increasing numbers, have begun to settle there.

“Las Tablas is graced with more sunny days and less humidity than any other part of the country,” says InternationalLiving.com Panama editor Jessica Ramesch. “And the cost of living is the lowest in Panama. Here, a couple can easily live on $ 1,000 a month, including rent.”

Originally from St. Louis, expats Joyclyn and Armand Brodeur came to Las Tablas in August 2014 to test-drive their Panama retirement.

“The couple yearned for a tropical, beach lifestyle,” Ramesch reports. “At the same time, they wanted to choose a place where it was possible to live on a Social Security check.”

“Las Tablas fits the bill,” they say, citing the excellent infrastructure and affordable healthcare.

The Brodeurs chose Las Tablas so they could live well on little, without sacrificing the good things in life. They go to the local expat hangout, Ponchalo’s, several times a week. The cost averages $ 20 total, including beverages. “Recently we had a to-die-for filet mignon for $ 6 at a place around the corner,” they report. Utilities are also inexpensive and they rent their small home for $ 200 a month.

“The Brodeurs are most enthusiastic about the quality and affordability of the healthcare, however. Both have been to a local dentist and were impressed with the offices, equipment, and thorough manner,” says Ramesch.

With more money in their pockets and no shortage of time on their hands, the two have been able to fully immerse themselves in the culture of their new home.

Attending a recent festival in rural Panama, Joyclyn said, “I saw a bull run, and it was fascinating.” At this festival, there were oxcarts painted in bright primary colors, local boys in traditional garb, and girls in richly embroidered polleras—Panama’s much-admired national dress worn for traditional events.

When they’re not dancing and socializing, the couple enjoys their laid-back lifestyle in Las Tablas.

“The day starts with Panamanian coffee—usually on the front porch. We have a papaya tree in the backyard and have fresh papaya regularly for breakfast,” Armand reports. “It’s a simple, effortless lifestyle…though the nearby beaches do make it sound a bit glamorous.”

The Brodeurs do most of their traveling by foot, as many of the locals do. And all the walking has had an unintended effect. “We have dropped an incredible amount of weight,” says Armand. “And we’re not even eating as healthy as we ought to.”

New Year’s Fitness Resolutions Just Got Easier: Fit Body Boot Camp Announces Record Sales for December, the Slowest Month of the Year


Chino Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) January 08, 2015

In perhaps one of the most newsworthy statements of the young 2015, Bedros Keuilian wants to let American’s know they can indeed maintain and accomplish any fitness goals set for the coming year. While such ambitious resolutions are often regarded as short-lived wishful thinking, numerous new Fit Body Boot Camp locations should make achieving these goals much easier.

The popular fitness brand is the nation’s fastest growing indoor fitness boot camp franchise with hundreds of locations worldwide and new locations opening each month.

And according to its founder and CEO, there are numerous new locations scheduled to open in the first months of 2015. With record breaking franchise sales for December, new locations around the country will be made available to many Americans and their resolutions.

But it isn’t just Keuilian who’s getting excited about the exercise brand. The analysts over at Entrepreneur Magazine recently released their list of The 10 Types of Franchises to Watch in 2015, and featured among the fitness franchise category was Fit Body Boot Camp.

Yet the growing popularity among business insiders and investors is merely a reaction to the fitness company’s popularity among consumers and its ability to produce noticeable results.

“That’s why we call it ‘The Unstoppable Fitness Formula,’” says Keuilian, “we’ve carefully developed this powerful fitness system that combines innovative and constantly changing workouts, personal attention from certified fitness instructors and personal trainers, and careful nutritional guidance prepared by licensed health professionals.

“It’s exactly this system that allows our clients to achieve such impressive results and it’s what is going to allow anyone the ability to achieve, maintain, and even surpass their New Year’s fitness resolutions.”

Exuding confidence and encouragement, Keuilian presented his vision for the company:

“As one of the fastest growing global brands in the group fitness and personal training industry, Fit Body Boot Camp’s Global Goal is to expose and engage 20% of the world’s population to a healthy and fit lifestyle by the year 2020.”

Whether Keuilian and Fit Body Boot Camp will experience the fruition of this particular resolution remains to be seen. For those seeking assistance with their personal New Year’s resolutions, however, Keuilian is certain about one thing: Fit Body Boot Camp is their best bet for transforming their bodies and lives.
