About Exercise Prescriptions
Because long-term weight management is an adjustment to your overall lifestyle, it is important to get the tools and guidance needed to ensure you are successful in not only achieving your goals but in maintaining them in the future. As part of developing a customized weight loss program for patients, board-certified physician Dr. Karla Vital creates a series of specific exercises that are close guidelines that she expects her patients to follow. Although any person is free to exercise as they choose, having a specific set of daily routines as prescribed by a trained professional is a safe and effective part of reaching your weight loss goals. Be sure to contact Vital Health & Wellness Center in Houston, TX to schedule your first consultation with Dr. Vital and learn more about how our professional team can help you reach your weight loss goals.
Exercise Prescription Ideal Candidates
For individuals who are struggling to lose weight or are experiencing other physical complications due to unwanted body fat, a physician-guided weight loss program, including prescribed exercise routines, may be the best way to finally achieve those elusive goals. Dr. Vital and her team are happy to work closely with you to develop a safe, comprehensive plan of daily exercises that will not only help you lose weight but to also create lasting lifestyle changes so that those same pounds do not unexpectedly return in the future.
Exercise Prescription Treatment Plans
A typical exercise prescription will incorporate important information about you that has been gathered through testing and evaluation to ensure that you are not being expected to perform outside of your capabilities or in a way that may put your health at risk. While every treatment plan developed by Dr. Vital is customized to match the unique needs of her patients, several core elements are commonly included, such as:
- A fitness assessment that can be used to determine a baseline of your current physical state and which exercises you can perform safely
- A variety of exercises intended to build core strength, enhance endurance, and promote flexibility
- Cardiovascular exercises to promote increased blood flow and lower cholesterol levels
- Strength training as a means of effectively exercising various aspects of the body to promote a healthier, more active daily lifestyle

We are happy to have a conversation with you about any challenges or struggles you may be experiencing while working to meet the expectations laid out in your treatment plan, and we will always keep your health and safety in mind while developing a plan that can help you achieve your goals.
