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.
Pursuing weight loss is a personal decision that requires hard work, and
vigilant care for your health. We can help you determine goals, and provide
tools to help you pursue them in healthy ways
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 suit 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. Another exercise option located at our CrossFit KMC
facility is GetFit, a class designed for those who are intimidated by
any notions of CrossFit, have had lengthy absences from exercise, and
simply want to get in better shape. The Get Fit workouts have the same
principles of CrossFit except we will focus mainly on metabolic conditioning
with scaled down weights or bodyweight movements. This program is also
ideal for those individuals in Kirby’s Fresh Start weight loss program
and Diabetes program.
Each class will consist of a general and specific warm-up, specific instruction
on technique for that day, practice time, workout and cool down post-workout. Visit
CrossFitKMC.org for more information and class schedules.
