Fitness


Physical fitness is essential for good health, and is necessary if you are trying to lose weight. During exercise, the body burns stored calories as energy. At its very foundation, weight loss is equal to calories in < calories out. You must burn more calories each day than you consume in order to lose weight.

Based on this simple equation, it is possible to lose weight by reducing caloric intake alone, but aerobic exercise and strength training help to maintain weight and reduce risks of many health conditions.

Keeping up with routine exercise can be challenging when left on your own. Nicholson Clinic is your partner on your journey toward physical fitness and good health. We offer programs specifically designed for post-bariatric surgery patients. Please check facebook for dates and times.
