Medically Supervised Weight Loss

What does ‘medically supervised’ mean?

medical-assist-weight-lossDr. Tariq backs every step of our program for every client. Initially, we advise that our clients have a
pre-exercise physical. During this exam we do multiple tests and perform screening to include: physical limitations, medical conditions, risk factor analysis, laboratory testing, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), body fat percentage, hormone testing, and metabolic rate testing. Once this is complete, we can customize an individualized program that meets your needs.

Other detailed tests such as EKG’s, respiratory testing with spirometry and/or x-rays or other imaging can also be performed if needed.

Doing your part at home

For most professionals today, making house calls is simply not an option, but few would argue the benefits of healthcare in the home.

This will ensure that proper habits are being formed inside and outside of the gym. This approach will teach you and your family to live a long life enriched with exercise and balanced nutrition!
