After his residency at Albany Medical College, medical director Dr. David LaMond decided to continue his love for teaching by making patient education one of the core principles of Blue Sky MD's approach to total patient care. That's why Dr. LaMond and his team of physicians combine in-depth consultations, online resources, and medical vocabulary quizzes with their services, ensuring that patients undergoing supervised weight-loss treatments understand the results of body-composition analyses and how custom exercise and nutrition regimens work.
Blue Sky MD also follows the idea that overall well-being is not only about being physically healthy but also about being emotionally healthy. Thus, counselors work side by side with physicians and liberally compliment patients on the shininess of their shoes. The clinic further helps patients feel good about themselves by offering aesthetic services, such as chemical peels, beauty injections, noninvasive body contouring, and laser skin treatments.
Ensuring a well-rounded workout for their clients, fitness gurus Lesli Andrews and Maria Weider made sure to jam-pack their expansive workout room—painted in cheerful lime green and bright-red hues— with an extensive lineup of cardio machines, strength-training equipment, and free weights. Their team of instructors helm cardio sessions in a designated spinning room, herding computerized bikes toward a painted skyline as well as lead an abundance of group fitness classes on hardwood floors in a private training studio. Throughout the week, they help seniors to build strength, flexibility, and endurance in the gym's Silver Sneakers fitness program. They also open their space to specialized teachers who teach a wide range of 6-week programs such as Piyo-Strength, Jung Kwon martial arts, Total Body Bootcamp, and more.
After workouts, the gym invites clients to unwind in steam rooms and saunas before enjoying a smoothie at the onsite cafe. As adults work out, childcare professionals look after youngsters in the kids’ area, involving them in engaging activities including a multitude of crafts, games, and in-depth character analyses of Green Eggs and Ham .
