Weight Management

Fitness and Cardio*

Being overweight or obese has become twice as likely as having a healthy body weight in the United States. As a result, rates of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular conditions including hypertension, elevated cholesterol, heart attacks, heart failure, and strokes continue to climb. The Wellness Center at Estes Park tackles the underlying cause of many health risks by addressing necessary lifestyle modifications to achieve a healthy weight. Relying on data from initial client assessments, science-based weight management programs are used to customize daily training regimens, nutritional guidance and cooking demonstrations. To enhance wellness and to ensure success after returning home, tools for monitoring on-going progress are offered such as subscriptions to ongoing weekly sessions with nutritionists via phone and e-mail.

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Grab the Good Stuff

Plan ahead for your lunches. This is a critical step in maintaining a healthy diet. Don't leave it to chance. If you do, you'll be much more susceptible to fall into old habits and reach for something unhealthy. The next time you go to the supermarket, make a list and buy specific ingredients for your lunchtime meals. Make sure you prepare them ahead of time. It is important that they are convenient, nutritious, and delicious!

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Forgive Yourself

Give yourself a break! An occasional indulgence in a high-calorie treat won't negate all of your hard work. It's ok to diverge and "cheat" every now and then. Just make it the exception and not the rule! Do not give that treat so much power. Instead of focusing on guilt or feeling bad about yourself, just get back on track by trying to fit a little extra exercise in over the next few days.
