Weight Management

 

Weight loss is a goal that many people share, though the means of achieving this goal is different among individuals.  The science of weight management is complex and continues to expand, today we know that there are many medical conditions, food intolerances, hormone imbalances, life situations, and medications that can lead to weight gain. Whether it is 10 pounds or more, achieving a healthier weight can help prevent or treat many of the most common chronic diseases as well as improve one’s quality of life.
At Thrive, many facets of a successful weight loss program are accessible under one roof in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The process starts with a complete and detailed history and exam with a physician, after which a program is formulated specific to one’s medical issues and personal preferences. Among the benefits of choosing Thrive is that we offer a team of specialists including a nutritionist, health coach, personal trainer for fitness assessment, and a multitude of yoga and exercise classes amenable to a range of physical ability. We also provide a series of wellness classes to help maintain a focus on optimizing health. Studies show that regular contact with a provider is an integral part of most successful weight loss programs, and being part of a group, whether it is a fitness, nutrition or wellness class, can bring positive energy and provide support.
