Introducing the first in our area:

Illness and Prevention & Wellness Lifestyles Center

Lakeside understands the rising cost of health care and the immediate need to promote a healthier task force. We strive to help in medical management, identified risk and elevated bio-markers.  This new concept provides a collaborative approach between the physician, along with trained professionals and coaches within a “Supervised Medical Model”. Supervised Wellness program offers clients valuable tools to help manage their health and improve their quality of life, as well as exercise, nutrition, counseling and stress management to become and stay healthy.  Promoting awareness and introduction to exercise becomes easier with a team support.

Lakeside offers a team driven program that promotes healthy lifestyle changes in you.  It allows you to work closely with a fitness team while under the guidance of you physician.  Our team is here to motivate you and help restore your level of healthiness while gently guiding you through the process.

Each client will receive a health assessment, screening and measurements from the fitness specialist prior to starting and upon completion of the program.  This pre and post intake assessment information is shared with your primary care physician.

We will constantly check, monitor and track your blood pressure, glucose, and heart rate using ACSM protocols and American Heart Association guidelines. We also use integrative methods such as massage, yoga, tai chi and Pilates.
