Lose the weight for good with our clinically proven program
If you find yourself needing more support than your average diet guidelines give you, Fresh Start can help you make needed lifestyle changes with a focus on medically supervised weight loss and behavior modification. Fresh Start is a proven clinical weight loss program that provides education, health assessments and nutritional counseling, as well as screenings for and treatments of obesity-related conditions. Fresh Start follows the Ideal Protein® nutritional plan in four phases and provides exercise and physical activity resources, support groups, psychological counseling, recipes and reading material – all of which help you stay on track with your personal weight loss goals. During the first phase of Fresh Start, patients also participate in the Get Fit program.
There are no quick fixes when it comes to weight loss, and weight loss is a very personal experience, but we can help you determine goals, provide tools and offer support as you begin a new journey toward a healthier you.
Get a great workout, meet new friends and achieve your health goals
Our new 3,200-square-foot, state-of-the-art gym, located on our Kirby Medical Center campus, is dedicated to CrossFit® training and is equipped with rowers, Airdyne® bikes, kettlebells, medicine balls, barbells and more. CrossFit workouts incorporate elements from weightlifting, gymnastics and metabolic conditioning (cardio). Classes are designed to motivate and encourage you to reach your fitness goals through constantly varied, functional movements like squatting, pushing and pulling, and they are performed at an intensity level that suits you best. Our CrossFit classes accommodate athletes of all levels and experience. These workouts are designed so that anyone can step into one of our classes and be successful. Each class will consist of a general and specific warm-up, specific instruction on technique for that day, practice time, workout and cooldown post-workout.
