What Is SMARTFIT?
SMARTFIT is a medical fitness program designed for those who want to permanently modify their lifestyle and enjoy improved health. Based on the individual’s needs, the program involves a thorough initial evaluation including a discussion of the individual’s particular goals. Measurements are taken and the patient is given a details, well explained exercise program taking into account both the patient’s goals, as well as their own physical presentation. The end goal is an informed, empowered individual who has experienced success and has the requisite knowledge, tools, help, motivation and support to sustain these lifestyle modifications.
