We know the science behind weight loss.

Every Life Time Weight Loss program is built specifically for you. That’s because every program at Life Time begins with a myMetabolicProfileSM assessment. This profile identifies areas of concern that may get in the way of your weight loss. After this assessment you’ll choose a plan based on your specific needs and lifestyle. One size doesn’t fit all, particularly when it comes to weight loss plans. That’s why we get results that are more than just short-term; we put you on the path toward achieving and maintaining a healthy weight for a lifetime.

We offer programs ranging from pre-packaged to completely custom. Or you can choose weekly Healthy Living Challenges. These informal gatherings allow small groups to meet with a Nutrition Coach and discuss various topics or concerns for the week in a casual setting. Talk to a trainer for help determining which program is right for you.

With your unique metabolic profile, our experts will create your own personal plan to lose weight. See How It Works

Mistakes behind the Most Common Gym Injuries 

“Hmm…that exercise looks like it’s working for that person. Maybe I should try it.” 

Have you found yourself saying this at the gym? Sometimes watching others’ workouts opens up whole new directions in our fitness. We discover new interests. We become willing to push ourselves in new ways.

On the flip side of this coin, however, we may not appreciate the distance between where we’re at and where that other person is. We can easily underestimate the time and training that have gone into his/her current abilities or not understand how a particular exercise fits into his/her larger program. As a result, we may put unreasonable – and sometimes dangerous – expectations on ourselves.

As a corrective exercise specialist, I have seen quite the variety of injuries, most of which were entirely preventable given proper knowledge and instruction. Every body is unique: this point should be a guiding principle for our individual fitness paths. Check out these top considerations we can glean from the majority of gym injuries.

What You Should Know about Resistant Starch 

Not everything you know about starch is necessarily correct. 

With regard to starch, our minds tend to wander to those blood sugar spikes, the insulin overload, and the inevitable energy crashes - not to mention their ability to stop efficient fat loss dead in its tracks.

For starchy carbs, these associations would be mostly correct - albeit incomplete. There's more to the story, it seems.

Consider for a moment that one kind of starch may be a boon to your gut health and perhaps even an aid to your weight loss endeavors.

Enter the concept of resistant starch. What is it, how does it work, and what could it offer you? Read on to find out more.

10 “Hard Truth” Health Indicators 

How many ways do you measure your health?

 Our annual physicals are, indeed, essential. They offer us a basic check-in on certain numbers. Nonetheless, there’s so much more to the story than what standard tests gauge that I encourage my clients to look deeper with additional assessments.

When we’re interested in getting a sense of where we’re at health-wise and what kind of progress we’re making (or not making), certain numbers simply tell us more. In some cases, that means more detail around the basics. In other cases, it means examining additional dimensions that conventional screening doesn’t cover.

Many of these added assessments don’t cost anything. In fact, one you can even do before you finish reading this article. Check out ten health indicators that offer a clearer picture of your current health status.

8 Staples for Everyday Healthy Eating

When it comes to healthy eating, one of the most common perceived barriers that I see people struggle with is in fact time.

While there’s no doubt that cooking every meal from scratch would be ideal and provide the most variety, it’s possible to simplify your nutrition with a couple of key strategies that don’t involve resorting to chemical-laden meals out of a box.

Does Weight Influence Autoimmune Dysfunction?

Have you or someone you know been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder? Chances are - yes.

In fact, some 50 million Americans today have one or more autoimmune related disorders. 

Why are we seeing such a rapid climb in these diagnoses? While genetics appear to predispose many of us, experts now believe that the development of these disorders must be set in motion or "triggered" by other external factors such as environmental exposures and lifestyle choices. Obesity and excess weight can also figure into our risk for autoimmune dysfunction.

5 Reasons R&R Isn’t Optional

When you think of health - and especially weight loss - how do you imagine rest and relaxation fitting into that picture?

It can strike us as totally contradictory: rest and weight loss. Isn’t weight loss about effort and exertion? I’m supposed to be committing to the diligent labor of health and fitness - right?

The truth is, we absolutely do take on new endeavors when we follow a health journey. We put more care into shopping and food preparation. We hit the gym. We move more throughout the day. We get to bed earlier. In short, we put more energy into taking proper care of ourselves.

However, the underlying concept here - and the crux of real lifestyle change is this: we recalibrate our lives toward self-investment. This concept doesn’t put us on a path of unchecked exertion - but of personal balance.
