What happens during a weight-loss consultation?

When you come in for a medical exercise consultation at NY FITPROS, you can expect a thorough evaluation. The team focuses on figuring out how your body works and finding out what it needs to optimize health and wellness. The patient must first undergo an initial consultation that includes a pre-participation screening to determine their health and fitness level, including an evaluation of their medical history. This process allows them to provide the appropriate Medical Exercise Training (MET) – and to prevent medically unstable clients from entering the program.

At NY FITPROS, the team does not rely on trial-and-error. Instead, they use the latest methods and tools to thoroughly assess your body's significant functional aspects to determine the right exercise program for you. The SMART START Assessment will be implemented to establish your baseline fitness level, allowing them to assess your current capacity and exercise capability – what you can or cannot do. Ultimately, the results will show whether you require one-on-one training, buddy training, and small group training sessions. Participants in the medical exercise program are also provided with a heart monitor to use during their workouts. 

The SMART START Assessment evaluates:

  • Postural Analysis
  • FIT3D Analyzer
  • 11-Point Musculoskeletal Screening
  • Cardiopulmonary Fitness
  • Push-Pull Strength 
  • Joint Biomechanics
  • Functional Movement Pattern
  • Brain Gauge Mental Fitness Assessment

Based on the information gathered during your evaluation, your medical exercise specialist designs your individualized care program, which may include: 

  • Strength training
  • Personalized self-exercise cardiopulmonary program
  • Advanced MyZone heart monitor with smartphone APP access for exercise optimization
  • Lifestyle coaching 
  • Small group, condition-specific training
  • Customized weight loss and nutrition programming
  • Adaptive yoga
  • Meditation and stress management coaching
  • Massage therapy

What can I expect during the weight-loss program?

Your weight-loss program will also include ongoing analyses and interpretation of body fat, metabolism, and other performance metrics to assess the program’s effectiveness. Your medical exercise specialist conducts follow-up assessments every 30 days to monitor and celebrate your progress. When you reach your weight and fitness goals, the team performs a comprehensive review so you can see the remarkable changes from your initial assessment. 

NY FITPROS is here to help you create long-lasting lifestyle changes to say goodbye to those extra unwanted pounds.
