tblAll interventions are provided by a licensed health professional

The first visit will be approximately 1 hour in duration to discuss health history, needs, and goals

Our approach, following the initial client intake, is to immediately get the client moving, with exercise interventions taught and performed in the most efficient and effective way possible. During these sessions, there is ample time to provide health education including nutrition and to discuss lifestyle issues in order to determine additional needs. It is important to note that exercises aren’t simply performed – it is a massive learning experience with clients understanding anatomy and the effects of exercise on all body systems down to the cellular level. With resistance exercise, clients will understand how each movement affects muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. There are opportunities to teach, such as the “theory of aging”, which states that while we need nutrition, every bite we take causes oxidative stress on our cells leading to aging – simply a tool to get clients thinking about food in a different way. The ultimate goals of our program are habit and lifestyle change by challenging our clients to understand their bodies, how they work, and the necessity of daily maintenance.

Healthy eating education emphasizes nutrient density of food and the priority to choose whole, unprocessed foods. However, our greatest contribution to dietary education will be concerning what actually happens inside the body when food is consumed. How it affects organs, hormones, and cells. How it causes aging. How some types of foods combined with inactivity create insulin resistance over time. How food consumption should be based on activity level. There are so many research studies and areas of science to discuss with the client during sessions. No time is wasted. Most counseling will occur during exercise training.

Upon entrance to the program, each individual is encouraged to bring at least one other family member, friend, or co-worker to each exercise and educational session, not only to reach more people, but also to provide an additional level of support by creating groups of individuals who are able to hold each other accountable, assist with transportation, and provide emotional support. Those we help, will be able to teach others what they have learned, increasing our program reach.

The ultimate goal of this program is habit and lifestyle change.  We focus on simple changes, simple exercises, and demonstrate that interventions are not difficult at all to do.  Many people feel that in their current state of health, making a change would be like "moving mountains".  It's just not true.  Getting healthy is really not complicated at all, it just requires consistency.  When clients understand that our bodies require daily maintenance for optimal health, behaviors change for the better. Part of this program is focused on time management, the importance of consistency, and being efficient with exercise interventions but we understand that people have busy lives and may, at times, not be consistent with exercise or eat the best. When these setbacks occur, clients who have been a part of our program will maintain the knowledge to know exactly what to do in order to get back on track.
