Before beginning our program, you will be asked to come in for an Orientation meeting. During this appointment, you will meet with a clinician who will describe our program in detail and answer your questions. If you decide that the program is the right fit for you after the orientation, you will be scheduled for four 1-hr assessments. We generally recommend the assessments be scheduled in 1 or 2-hr time blocks vs. a single 4-hr marathon appointment.

Initial Assessment

At the Orientation, you will receive a program binder containing a number of forms to complete, including an in-depth Pre-Assessment Questionnaire. Please complete this form and bring it with you to your first assessment appointment.

Initial Assessments Include:

  • Metabolic and Body Composition Analysis and Exercise Plan
  • Nutrition Analysis and Diet Plan
  • Behavioral Assessment
  • Physician Consultation and Physical Exam

Comprehensive assessment
