An exercise physiologist can aid in management and reduction of weight to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
Exercise along with diet are the two most important factors to maintaining a healthy weight. Exercise is used to expend the energy from the food we eat and to regulate our metabolism.
WHAT TYPE OF EXERCISE IS BEST?
Our exercise physiologist will assess your physical capacity to design an individualized program. This can consist of aerobic/cardiovascular exercise, strength training and/or high-intensity exercise to work towards your goals.
WHY IS WEIGHT MANAGEMENT IMPORTANT?
Weight management is important to decrease your risk of metabolic and musculoskeletal conditions.
For example weight loss has been proven to reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis when body weight is reduced by 5-7.5%.
