Promoting Wellness through Exercise and Proper Nutrition

April 27, 2018

Medically integrated fitness centers managed by Power Wellness focus on overall well-being and quality of life. Under the supervision of a Medical Advisory Committee, comprised of physicians and healthcare professionals, these centers offer a plethora of programs targeting individuals with chronic conditions and special medical needs.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) , more than one-third (39.8%) of adults in the United States are considered clinically obese (1). The Nutrition Reviews Journal by Oxford University Press notes, “Individuals with high intakes of dietary fiber appear to be at significantly lower risk for developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases” (2). This is just an example of many of the benefits members can experience with proper nutrition.

At the Loyola Center for Fitness, we offer the Change Your Weigh™ Program focusing on lifestyle and behavior changes that contribute to long term health and wellness.  A multi-disciplinary team including a registered dietitian, lifestyle wellness coach and personal trainer provide 360 support for participants.  Over a 10-week period, participants lost an average of 4.9% body fat, 8 pounds! Learn more about the program here.
