Intensive Lifestyle Program

The Intensive Lifestyle Program looks at the components of a healthy lifestyle to get you started on your way to feeling great. Most chronic diseases can be prevented or improved by lifestyle, but a healthy lifestyle also helps immediately by improving sleep, energy, mood, and focus. The program consists of 12 weekly 90 min sessions and access to our gym for the duration of the program.

FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM 

  • Weekly group sessions lead by a health coach
  • Personalized exercise prescription
  • Supervised exercise: for those that need assistance starting or continuing with an exercise program
  • Focus on eating for pleasure and health at the same time
  • Discussions on sleep
  • Using mindfulness to improve resilience
  • Coaching to help make these changes doable and fun
