The Texas Medical Weight Loss Clinic staff operate under the guidance of internal medicine doctors who specialize in bariatrics. Each client's journey begins with an evaluation by one of those doctors, allowing the medical professional to customize a program for success. The doctors may recommend fat-burning B12 injections, FDA-approved appetite suppressants, or a low-calorie diet to help the patient reach his or her goals. The team also offers the innovative Newtopia plan, in which doctors, pharmacologists, dieticians, clinical psychologists, and exercise physiologists use a genetic profile to determine nutritional protocols and the likelihood of developing scales from prolonged pool exposure.
Cathy Moses Baldasserini studied dance and therapy and received full scholarships to New York dance conservatories such as Martha Graham and Alvin Ailey. She began practicing Pilates as a way to hone and refine her body, the instrument of her self-expression. Now, she teaches it full time at her fitness-dedicated studio, Pilates for Life.
Joined by nine other teachers, Cathy reforms students' bodies with both basic and machine-assisted Pilates, yoga, kettlebells, and tai chi classes. She uses Pilates for its renowned ability to strengthen the site of injuries or chronic pain and to provide conditioning for weak joints, problem backs, and those who have osteoporosis. She also implements devices such as reformers—a system of pulleys and sliding platforms that enhance Pilates's classic horizontal exercises—and towers, which incorporate the natural resistance of gravity into Pilates movements.
