Fitness Management: Boosting Your Vitality Through Exercise
It is not necessary to become an exercise fanatic to achieve weight loss and improve your health. But enhancing your physical activity is critical to achieving
lasting health. Through the Total Approach, you will learn ways to gently incorporate more physical activity into your daily habits. Our dedicated professionals
create a personal schedule of activity enhancement that fits your lifestyle.
Behavioral Counseling: Getting Ready for Getting Better
Weight problems can take an emotional toll on those affected, and reasons for weight gain may often be traced to an emotional origin as well. But education and
self-discovery are the roots of all change, and through the Total Approach, your healing can be complete. Your growth and learning will positively influence your
overall health and wellbeing, in body, mind and spirit.
Our experience shows that three components make up the most effective formula for healing your body and lifestyle—knowledge, skills and support. The Total Approach
provides all these. Private counseling sessions with an experienced behavioral therapist will help you recognize and unlearn destructive habits and self-defeating
behaviors. You will learn how think positively, better manage stress, prevent setbacks, maintain motivation and build self-esteem. Practical, healthy behaviors
will become second nature to you.
And from your first day of participation in the Total Approach, you will feel the entire staff of Cederquist Comprehensive Weight Control behind you, to guide you,
engage you, encourage and inspire you. We are there to help you get well, feel better and build a happy, lifelong practice of healthy living!
