According to the National Weight Registry 89% of people who have lost 30 or more pounds and kept it off for at least a year reached their goals through a combination of diet and exercise. Only 10% succeeded using diet alone and only 1% succeeded using exercise alone. So if weight loss is one of your goals, practicing proper nutrition is essential.
Exercise is only one aspect of living a healthy way of life. By exercising right but not addressing nutrition you are missing a key component to healthy living.
Just as our personal fitness trainers customize a workout specific to your body and fitness goals, our Nutritionist will help you understand your own specific nutritional needs and how to use this information to optimize your overall health.
