Weight Loss Bootcamp

Weight Loss Bootcamp

Loose the weight, with science!

 

Our physiology-based weight loss program is one-of-a-kind in Ottawa. Our protocols are based on your body’s response to our assessments and provide you with true physiological data to help develop a unique program that is intended to maximize your weight loss. When developing this program, we began by researching the physiology of using energy. We realized that offering a nutrition or exercise program without testing their body’s capabilities was not the best way to do it. Our intent is to create attainable goals by working smarter, not harder!

There are two components to our weight loss bootcamp:

 

The Assessment:

This is the caveat to an effective weight loss program. Our assessment measures the most important aspects of your body’s ability to store and utilize energy, aka fat. With these results, we will understand how many calories you need per day, your cardiovascular fitness, and your body’s response to exercise. 

The Bootcamp

Once the assessment is done, we use your unique results to create a custom weight-loss program. Don’t worry, you are not left alone after the assessment. As part of our commitment to your success, we follow you along for 6 months!

 

Included in the program

2 VO2 tests: at baseline and 6 months

1 Resting metabolic test

3 Body composition analysis: baseline, 3-months, 6-months

Personalized 6-month cardiovascular exercise protocol

30-minute consultation with our nutritionist

3 15-minute follow ups


Our Goals with You

Consistent and Healthy Weight Loss

Because our exercise protocol is based on the results from your personalized assessment, the difficulty is relative to your physiological performance. In combination with the metabolic test, we can identify exactly how many calories you should be eating in order to maintain or loose additional weight. This is the safest and most effective method because it minimizes the amount of side-effects from poor diets, prevents burn-out or injuries, and avoids harsh dietary changes that often result in low compliance.

Reduced Medication Needs

There is an abundance of research demonstrating that a well designed exercise program based from physiologic data improves metabolism and decreases the need for certain medications such as pain killers, anti-inflammatories, opioids, insulin (in type-2 diabetics), and more. Please speak with your doctor prior to making any changes to your medications. 

Longevity

Longevity is defined as the ability to live a long life. Poor VO2 scores have been associated with a significantly higher risk of death. Our protocol focuses on improving your VO2 scores, which will change as you improve your cardiovascular fitness through our exercise program. To learn more about the importance of VO2 and the risk of mortality, read our recent blog here.

Attainable Lifestyle Changes

One of the biggest obstacles that participants encounter in previous weight loss attempts, is that they burn out from working too hard. We understand that exercise may be new to you, which is why we design our program based on your body’s response to exercise. This allows for the creation of a program that is unique to your capabilities, making the efforts far more attainable with a higher level of success.
