LIVEWELL Exercise Clinic

LIVE WELL is a medical fitness clinic, not a gym, focusing on safe and effective programs that improve your health and wellness. All of our evidence-based programs are designed by exercise clinicians and approved by our Medical Director to prevent or rehabilitate health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity.We also closely monitor you before, during and after exercise by taking your pulse, doing blood pressure readings, or measuring your blood glucose levels if necessary. We know what exercises to avoid if you have high blood pressure, the best exercises for diabetics with foot neuropathy, and how to begin to exercise again after a heart attack, for example. You will not find this kind of of medical expertise, clinical supervision and individual attention at a regular gym.

Exercise is a powerful medicine. Regular exercise at the right intensity can:
Reduce the risk of heart disease by 40%;
Reduce the incidence of high blood pressure by almost 50%;
Lower the risk of stroke by 27%;
Reduce the incidence of diabetes by almost 50%.

Exercise and good nutrition can be very helpful to cardiac rehabilitation, but different heart conditions require different approaches to exercise. This is why LIVE WELL customizes your program and tailors it based on your specific medical history and heart condition. Our primary goal at LIVE WELL is that your exercise program be safe and appropriate for you. We start off low and move slow. You will be supervised at our clinic and we will communicate with your doctor or cardiologist to keep him or her apprised of your progress and condition. Our Heart Strong program would be the right fit for you.

At LIVE WELL we create a custom program for you that suits your body, strengths, fitness level and addresses any health issues you may have. However, when you come to work on your individual program, you will be joining a group session, where others like you are working on their own programs in the same space. You will do a group cool down together at the end of your session. Over time, you will get to know other members, share wins and frustrations and become part of the community. Most of our members find exercising in a group format fun and motivating! Research has shown that working out in a group dramatically increases your chance of success and sticking to your exercise regime.more info
