This 3 month comprehensive program brings together all of the necessary elements for successful weight loss. Our unique program is divided into five phases designed to chart your progress through out the program and make any needed adjustments along the way.
My best friend and I read your book and began our journey of losing weight together by utilizing your diet and exercise plan on October 1, 2007. We are both 57-years-old and in good health, but were extremely overweight, and almost to the point of no return. January 7, 2008 marked our 100th day of following your diet and exercise program. We are very grateful to our Lord for giving us the tenacity to “keep on keeping on,” and to you, for sharing your knowledge. To date, we have both lost over 40 pounds each, and have dropped 3 to 4 clothing sizes. We plan on continuing our journey of staying healthy and wanted to say “Thank You.”
We have one quick question in regards to your exercise program. What is the difference between an oblique crunch and the reverse trunk twist?
Thank you again.
Phase One: Application
Phase Two: Assessment
Physiological Testing – Meet with one of our certified fitness experts to determine your physiological status using the following:
Metabolic Study – determines your individualized metabolic rate. Our nutrition staff will then develop an eating plan for you based on how many calories your body actually burns per day instead of basing your nutritional needs on a formula which can be inaccurate.
Cardiovascular Assessment – includes a pulmonary function test, rest and exercise ecg, peak heart rate, VO2 max and anaerobic threshold. Our training staff will use these numbers to develop an individualized cardiovascular and circuit training program to ensure maximum fat burning during your workouts.
Body Composition – determines your body’s amount of lean mass and fat mass. These numbers help us set realistic and obtainable goals for your program. Your body composition will be rechecked at the end of your program to check progress.
Nutritional Assessment – Meet with our sports and lifestyle nutritionist to assess your current diet and develop a realistic meal plan using your metabolic rate as a guideline for caloric intake. Your baseline measurements will be taken at your initial visit and will be remeasured every 4 weeks to evaluate your progress.
Lifestyle Challenge – Meet with your trainer and develop your lifestyle plan.
Phase Three: Training
