Kym Garbatini has spent more than 30 years helping everyone from teenagers to heart-attack victims begin living healthier lifestyles by teaching them valuable weight-management skills. At Medical Weight Loss Solutions, the nutritional and medical staff works with Dr. Frank Mongillo, who specializes in internal medicine, and Dr. Deborah Schroter, who provides cognitive behavioral therapy, to help patients lose weight.
Before creating their medically supervised plans, the doctors perform preliminary blood work, EKG scans, and other diagnostic tests. Armed with this knowledge, they recommend a dietary plan designed to help patients safely lose weight and keep it off over time.
They also encourage patients to use their onsite fitness studio, with certified fitness staff who create customized workouts to complement weight loss plans. Plus, the physicians can inject metabolism-boosting LipoFast shots. Additionally, their center features a food market stocked with various weight-loss products, everything from nutritious meals to vitamin supplements. The food market is open to the public, geared toward anyone who wants to maintain weight loss or sports nutrition.
Budo taijutsu is a Japanese martial art that teaches practical self-defense against armed and unarmed attackers. Few know this better than New England Ninjutsu's founder, Greg Kowalski. While in Japan, Kowalski trained under Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi, ultimately earning his black belt in the art. When he returned to the United States in 1989, he decided the '90s would be cooler if he opened his own training studio, New England Ninjutsu. Today, Kowalski and his staff of fellow black belts—many of whom he trained—teach budo taijutsu to kids and adults.
