The Teenage Entrepreneur That Took The Luxury Car Scene By Storm: Meet Durim Zuta!

Durim Zuta is anything but your average 18-year-old in New York City. In fact, he’s the owner of a self-made luxury car service that is conquering the Tri-State area of New York City. The business is named Tristate Luxury Rentals– and it also doubles as a vehicle customization shop. In just under four years, Zuta has made a name for himself in a shark-filled industry that usually requires dozens of years of experience.

Zuta grew up being a car-lover. At age 14, Zuta was already taking his father’s Rolls Royce to local car shows in the city, hoping to see some of his bucket list dream cars on display. At these shops, he connected with a number of automobile entrepreneurs– most of which became a source of networking for teenage Zuta. Seeing as he was thoroughly interested in cars at such a young age, they all offered him the same piece of advice: learn the ropes, keep a good head on your shoulders, and find the business potential within your adoration of cars. “‘There’s plenty of money to be made in the world of cars’, is what they’d tell me,” Zuta mentioned while talking about his experience at the shows in the city. “I started learning about the business and immediately knew it was what I wanted to do,” he says. Not long afterward, he was using his network of car collectors and serving as a broker for a small set of established clients. Four years later, Zuta purchased his first Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, and Tristate Luxury Rentals became a reality.

Currently, the business has a “Fleet” of nearly a dozen luxury cars. For about $1,400 a day, you can drive the same Lamborghini that started the business, or any of the other cars in The Fleet, subject to availability and price ranging. In addition, the business offers a 24-hour chauffeur service to those who are interested in riding in style, but would rather take a back seat in the experience.

In just a few years of service, Tristate Luxury Rentals has already provided services to a long list of A-list celebrities and artists including French Montana, Ray J, Casanova, Lil Uzi Vert, Diddy, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and dozens more. While the cars are a good asset for personal enjoyment or even a special occasion, most of his VIP clients use the cars as props for music production videos and television shows. In the future, Zuta hopes to grow his Fleet by purchasing a rare assortment of cars not often seen in the market and, in turn, cater exclusively to a smaller circle of high-end clients.

Tristate Luxury Rentals has a showroom located in North Jersey where The Fleet is on display for clients’ choosing. The vehicle customization shop is located on the rear side of the showroom and is open to the public. In the coming months, the business is scheduled to open another location in North Jersey. Zuta also plans to grow nationwide in the next few years.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the cars in The Fleet’s lineup:

Lamborghini Urus
Mclaren GT
Rolls Royce Dawn
Lamborghini Huracan Spyder
C8 Corvette
Rolls Royce Wraith
BMW M5 Comp
BMW M8 Comp

According to Zuta, we can expect that list to double by August 2022.

The Role of Medicine in Achieving and Sustaining a Healthy Body Mass

The CDC’s latest numbers classify approximately 42 percent of Americans as obese, and over two-thirds of American adults qualify as either obese or overweight. Living with excess weight heightens people’s risk for debilitating and chronic but otherwise preventable conditions like stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

With new weight-loss drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy on the rise, many are wondering if these medications live up to their hype and can even help end the obesity epidemic. Sergio Padron, founder and CEO of online healthcare and weight-loss support company MD Exam, believes they can — up to a point.

“It’s important to approach these medications with a thorough understanding of what they can and can’t do,” Padron says. “Magic pills for weight loss don’t exist.”

The importance of achieving a healthy body mass

According to Padron, achieving and sustaining a healthy body mass is key to good health. To obtain your body mass index (BMI), online calculators like this one from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute ask for your height and weight, run them through the standard formula, and generate your score. The last step is to find this number in the standardized ranges considered underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese.

“Many healthcare professionals use the body mass index (BMI) for a quick approximation of most people’s health,” he explains. “All you need is the patient’s weight and height, and you can calculate this number.”

There are exceptions, however. “In particular, bodybuilders and other athletes can generate results that make it seem like they aren’t healthy, when in fact they’re in excellent condition,” Padron explains. “That’s because BMI doesn’t consider muscle mass, and muscle is more dense than fat. In addition, BMI doesn’t account for visceral fat being more dangerous than fat deposits elsewhere in the body.”

That’s why Padron cautions people not to make snap judgments based on BMI alone and to seek a more comprehensive view from healthcare professionals. “Factors like body composition, blood markers, and lifestyle need to be considered,” he explains, “which is one of the many reasons why we only offer individualized care at MD Exam.”

If your BMI falls in the overweight or obese categories, then it’s time to make a change. “Unfortunately, excess body weight means you could be developing major health problems that you otherwise wouldn’t,” Padron says. “Being overweight has also been associated with depression. In my experience, it can have a negative impact on self-esteem and even lead to the development of eating disorders.”

Luckily, groundbreaking new drugs have become available to help people recover their quality of life.

How Ozempic and Wegovy can help

According to Padron, pharmaceutical solutions like Ozempic and Wegovy can help most people achieve and sustain a healthy body mass. These medications reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, thereby enabling people to regulate their consumption better.

“One of the most important things our patients report is that they’re no longer tormented by cravings,” Padron says. “They find it easier to avoid overeating in the first place.”

In addition, Ozempic and Wegovy have been shown to decrease visceral fat — the dangerous kind of fat deposits. “The idea is to optimize health and well-being, not just lose weight,” Padron says. “We want to make sure you lose the right pounds. When you lose visceral fat and keep muscle, you are heading in the right direction and your body composition improves.”

In some rare cases, however, Ozempic and Wegovy aren’t effective. “Luckily, other interventions can be effective in those cases, such as Tirzepatide or classic weight-loss drugs,” Padron says.

Yet Padron emphasizes that weight-loss drugs alone are insufficient to achieve and sustain a healthy body mass.

Personalized, comprehensive support

“Just taking a pill won’t make pounds disappear,” Padron says. “To lose weight, it’s necessary to get real about your lifestyle and actually change your habits. If you haven’t been exercising, for instance, then it’s time to start getting up a little earlier and going for a morning walk. If you haven’t been eating well, then it’s time to stop buying soda and junk food.”

Easier said than done? “We know it’s hard,” Padron says. “That’s why our program takes support seriously. Our medical staff works with patients one-on-one to develop treatment plans that will work for them. We also provide coaching and connect patients to each other for mutual support and accountability. MD Exam is a community. People make friends for life on our platform.”

Lose weight, feel great

Obtaining a healthy body mass often leads to increased energy levels, improved mobility, and reduced joint pain. It can also help control chronic conditions like high blood pressure and sleep apnea, as well as forestall the development of preventable diseases. If that isn’t already enough, it can also boost patients’ self-confidence and mental health.

“Our patients experience an incredible feeling of accomplishment and empowerment,” Padron says. “Losing weight can be truly transformative. I can’t tell you how many people have told me their whole outlook on life has become more positive.”

For Padron, helping people lose weight is its own reward. “I love watching people shed their depression and come back to life,” he says. “This is the most rewarding work I can imagine.”
