As a physician, I understand how important weight management is to overall health. For several years, however, I struggled to keep my own weight at a healthy level. When I decided it was time to make a change, I knew that the only healthy and permanent way to lose weight was to eat fewer calories, increase my cardiovascular exercise and make weight training a priority in my life. Over the past year, I have dedicated myself to these goals. As a result, I’ve shed over 80 pounds*, and I feel I’m in the best physical condition of my life. In addition, my blood pressure normalized, my energy levels skyrocketed, and my self-consciousness melted away.
Study after study in the medical community prove that weight training plays a key role in any attempt to lose weight or improve one’s cardiovascular health. Initially, I tried weight training on my own, but I needed the benefits that personal training can offer, including expertise, motivation, safety, and appropriate goal setting.
Fitness Together has played a key role in my transformation over the past year. I get a more efficient workout than I could achieve on my own, along with added benefits of flexibility and core training. Beyond the superior training I receive, the team at Fitness Together has gone out of their way to personalize my experience. The staff is always motivating, friendly, and respectful. They work with my hectic schedule and tailor my workouts to achieve my specific training goals. In addition, Fitness Together offers nutrition and exercise counseling to ensure your success, and periodic fitness assessments to objectively track your progress. For those serious about making a positive change in their health, I highly recommend Fitness Together, as a physician and as a client who has seen Fitness Together make a positive difference in my own life.
