There are many roads to weight loss and better health, but not all of them are right for every person. That’s why each course of treatment at Advanced Fitness Medicine begins with a slate of in-depth tests, assessing everything from hormone levels to metabolic rate to body composition. Armed with these results—and with 25 years of experience as a primary care physician—founder Dr. Roderick Frazier employs a custom combination of supplements and lifestyle guidance to speed clients toward their health goals.
The clinic’s location helps, too: it shares an address with Quality Life Fitness, and Advanced Fitness patients gain access to group classes and a wealth of cardio and resistance equipment, inspiring them to become as strong and sleek as a brand-new elliptical machine. All certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, the weight-loss counselors working alongside Dr. Frazier are well-equipped to help patients get the most out of the ultra-modern facilities.
Losing weight requires a 24/7 commitment, which is why BaroSolutions Wellness and Weight Loss’s online support hub never closes. Program participants can contact a nutrition coach 24 hours a day via live chat or phone to discuss their progress through the program’s fitness routines and three-phase meal plan, including specialty plans such as a 10-day detox regimen and plateau-buster meal plan. Further guidance comes from an ecookbook stocked with 365 recipes for dishes that contain less than 300 calories, which helps participants fulfill their nutritional goals without resorting to eating only paper-thin slivers of cheesecake. House-brand diet supplements accelerate the weight-loss process by suppressing cravings, which catalyzes fat burning. For in-person support, clients can visit one of the clinics in the wellness centre’s network, staffed by nutrition- and weight-loss-savvy professionals.
When he was diagnosed with a rare, debilitating form of arthritis, Stephen Steeves took his health into his own hands. Through delving into nutritional and naturopathic studies, he not only relieved his pain, but he also lay the groundwork for his professional future. Stephen went on to become certified in clinical nutrition and naturopathy, adopting a philosophy of "personalized preventive care" shared by his wife and colleague, Amy. A lifestyle-therapy educator and certified colon hydrotherapist, Amy Steeves combines her skills to design personalized wellness programs. She and Stephen employ a diverse spread of techniques to keep body engines humming, from nutrition counseling to infrared-sauna detox and computerized body-composition analysis.
A healthier weight is always the intended destination at Antoine Weight Loss Clinic, but the road there can take many different routes. Perhaps the best starting point is a counseling session, during which the client and one of the clinic's experts can personalize a plan for slimming down. The counselor might recommend a diet program that combines low-calorie foods and meal replacements. To round out plans, the specialist may also suggest adding in supplements, lipotropic injections, or hormone-replacement therapy.
The trio of sculptors behind Shape Body Center spend their time perfecting the human form. But rather than working with clay, they work with their clients’ bodies, helping them get into better shape. They help them achieve their goals with a combination of physical and nutritional services, ranging from noninvasive lipo and infrared body wraps to nutritional supplements and meal plans. They also count among their list of body-altering services “good ole’ fashioned motivation,” something they offer freely to everyone who walks through the door.
The staff at nuYou Image helps their clients cozy into warm body wraps that deploy infrared heat to stimulate circulation and promote detoxification. When paired with a healthy lifestyle, these relaxing treatments can help burn calories and smooth the skin.
