Nutrition, Weight Loss and Personal Training
When should I consider Weight Loss?
Obesity is an excessive amount of body fat. It’s usually determined using BMI (Body Mass Index), which compares your weight to your height. In general, a BMI between 18.5 – 24.9 suggests normal weight, while 25 – 29.9 is overweight. A BMI above 29.9 indicates obesity. Click here for a BMI calculator. The majority of Americans have at least one area where they would like to loose a little weight. Are you a candidate for weight loss?

How do you treat obesity?

You’ll have a comprehensive medical and lifestyle exam. Your BMI, metabolism, and health history, as well as family history, all play important roles in weight loss.
Personalized exercise program
Regular physical exercise is an essential part of healthy weight loss. Discuss any exercise preferences or limitations during your health screening.

How long until I lose weight?
