Personal Training for Weight Loss
Typically when you think of using a personal trainer, it is for weight loss. If you have knee pain or back pain, it’s natural to think that if you can just lose weight your pain will decrease. We take a different approach to help you achieve this goal faster. Because we specialize in working with medical conditions, we will first help you eliminate your joint pain, therefore allowing you to exercise easier and lose weight faster. There is no reason to push through the pain and create more damage to your joints. Throughout the process we will work with you on your nutrition and hold you accountable to your program so that you will lose weight. We have seen some amazing weight loss transformations with our clients.
Before you start our weight loss program you should talk to your health care provider about your weight. Doctors do not always address issues such as healthy eating, physical activity, and weight control during general office visits. It is important for you to bring up these issues to get the help you need. Even if you feel uneasy talking about your weight with your doctor, remember that he or she is there to help you improve your health.
Talk to your doctor about safe and effective ways to control your weight. He or she can review any medical problems that you have and any drugs that you take to help you set goals for controlling your weight. Make sure you understand what your doctor is saying. Ask questions if you do not understand something.
Let your doctor know that you are going to start our weight-loss program. Once you start the program we will communicate with your doctor by sending them monthly progress reports. These reports are important to help your doctor manage your medical conditions.
Successful, long-term weight control must focus on your overall health, not just on what you eat. Changing your lifestyle is not easy, but adopting healthy habits may help you manage your weight in the long run. Our weight-loss program is effective because it includes ways to keep the weight off for good. We promote healthy behaviors that help you lose weight and that you can stick with every day.
Our safe and effective weight-loss program include:
- a plan to keep the weight off over the long run
- guidance on how to develop healthier eating and physical activity habits
- ongoing feedback, monitoring, and support
- slow and steady weight-loss goals—usually ½ to 2 pounds per week (though weight loss may be faster at the start of a program)
