DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - Cooper Clinic announces its new Cooper Weight Loss program within its Nutrition Services department. The three-month customizable program, open to the public and led by Cooper Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, personal trainers and a behavioral psychologist, combines nutrition, fitness and behavioral change to help individuals lose weight while gaining health. Visit cooperweightloss.com or call 844.862.8236 for details about the program.
"Based on science, Cooper Weight Loss has been created to serve as another tool for us to help improve the quality and quantity of peoples' lives. Obesity, which is closely associated with inactivity, decreases life expectancy by an average of six years," explains Dr. Tyler Cooper, President and CEO of Cooper Aerobics. "Maintaining a healthy weight is one of the 8 Steps to Get Cooperized, developed by my father, Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper, and we are dedicated to helping people create realistic, achievable and healthy changes in their lives."
The three-month Cooper Weight Loss program is customized for each participant and is led by a team of experts from across the Cooper Aerobics campus. A baseline Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test is followed by consistent meetings with Cooper Clinic Registered Dietitian Nutritionists, as well as cooking demonstrations and meal planning workshops, to allow clients the opportunity to be held accountable for their healthy eating habits. Body fat percentage testing and lab work at the beginning and end of the program add baselines to each client's journey.
A focus on exercise includes opportunities to work with Cooper Fitness Center Professional Fitness Trainers or our Female Focus group training program. Each one also includes a complimentary three-month membership to Cooper Fitness Center. Working with a certified behavior modification counselor rounds out the clinically sound program through emphasis on overall wellness. Additional enhancements are also offered.
"Our new program is a balanced approach to weight loss based on science and focused on areas of expertise across the Cooper Aerobics campus in order to give each patient a comprehensive method and support system for weight loss," says Colleen Loveland, RDN, Director of Nutrition at Cooper Clinic. "For years Cooper Clinic Nutrition Services has helped people live healthier lives through a focus on maintaining a healthy diet, and we're excited for the opportunity to help our clients on a deeper, more inclusive level as they work to achieve and sustain a healthier weight."
In addition to Cooper Weight Loss, Cooper Clinic Nutrition Services offers programs for kids, teens and adults, and the team of 11 Registered Dietitian Nutritionists specializes in diabetes management, celiac disease, sports performance, GI issues, weight management and more.
