Why an Exercise Physiologist for Weight loss? Isn't it diet that will help me to lose weight?
This is one of the most common questions that we get asked and whilst we acknowledge the role that calorie restriction can play in the initial stages of weight loss, latest evidence supports the early introduction of a tailored exercise program to increase lean muscle mass which can in fact help you burn more energy and help you continue this, even at rest!
What other benefit can come from exercise if I'm trying to lose weight?
It is common for those individuals that are weight loss candidates to also need to improve the management of other health conditions like blood pressure and cholesterol. Evidence demonstrates that those that participate in an exercise program that incorporates both strengthening exercises as well as cardiovascular exercise will enjoy the benefits of exercise on both blood pressure and cholesterol as well as other aspects of their health including bone density and mental health.
What if I'm already seeing someone to help me in my weight loss journey?
That sounds great! If you are working with other medical, allied health professionals or fitness professionals, we look forward to communicating with them frequently so together we can best support you to create long term strategies that work.
We also offer the Life! program onsite for those that prefer a combination approach of group based education and support alongside our individual exercise sessions.
