What Our Clients are Saying
Individual results may vary. All advice and programs provided by the Weight loss Clinic are personalized.
“ I have learned so much about exercises/exercise programming, nutrition, food, health, and about myself. They (the dietitian and personal trainer coaches) have both offered suggestions for how to stay motivated and keep on track and that it’s OK to have bad days. Jennifer (dietitian coach) ... has taught me so much about nutrition and how to implement change in my diet for life-long change."
- Anne (age 43) -
“I have settled into a schedule of 3 aquasize classes and 3 trips to the gym per week. And ... this morning weighed in at 188.7lbs, down 40 from when I first visited you in mid-June (7 months ago)! Thank you so much for the motivation and information you helped me with that allowed me to get to this point in my journey to good health."
