TORONTO – According to Statistics Canada, more than half of Canadians are overweight or obese. And while most people may lose weight on a diet, very few have managed to keep the weight off permanently. To address this issue, Athletic Edge Sports Medicine clinic is launching the new 12-week LIVE LEAN Weight Management Program on March 20, downtown Toronto.
“We are really excited about LIVE LEAN because it teaches people step-by-step how to eat healthy, improve their fitness and build habits that that can lead to permanent weight loss,” says Dr. Grant Lum, founder and owner of Athletic Edge Sports Medicine. “It helps people overcome the barriers to a healthy lifestyle and establish an eating and exercising regime that suits their unique needs, food and exercise preferences and lifestyle.”
The program was created and will be led by Stefanie Senior, Registered Dietitian and Trina Lambe, Certified Fitness Trainer and Kinesiologist. Stefanie managed the Steps to LessTM Weight Management program at St. Michael’s Hospital for three years and now has a private nutrition consulting practice. Trina is the founder and owner of Train by Trina, a premier personal training agency.
LIVE LEAN includes nutrition education, fitness training, behaviour modification techniques, professional and group support and a personalized weight loss plan. Many health benefit plans provide coverage for Registered Dietitian services and LIVE LEAN falls under this service.
Athletic Edge Sports Medicine will be hosting the LIVE LEAN open house on March 6 from 6-8 p.m. at Simcoe Place, concourse level. People will have the opportunity to enter a draw to join this 12-week program for FREE!
