Exercise and Weight Loss
Achieve your weight loss goals
At Pillars of Wellness Burlington and Aldershot, this wellness package offers an integrated and safe approach to helping those with medical conditions, chronic pain or other injuries to achieve their weight loss goals. The program is designed such that collaboration with the Physiotherapist, Kinesiologist and Naturopath result in each client losing weight in a safe and supported manner.
Benefits of exercising are many. It prevents high blood pressure, reduces your chance of stroke, type diabetes, depression, a number of type of cancer, arthritis and falls. It helps also to improve moods and boost your energy.
If you combine this with the right ailments, you will increase and maximize your health overall.
Regular trips to the gym are great but don't worry if you can't find the time to exercise every day. To gain the benefits of exercise, just get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator, take a walk around your neighborhood. Consistency is key.
