We Supply the Coaching - You Supply the Extra Pounds
Get In Shape! is a 16-week plan for people who want to increase their physical activity and lose weight. Patterned after the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) and the Virtual Lifestyle Management (VLM) studies, our state of the art program uses Suzuken-Kenz Lifecorder physical activity monitors, an online Virtual Lifestyle Management program, and online virtual support of a lifestyle coaching team to assist patients in their weight loss and physical activity efforts. Studies in the US and Japan have shown that this technology and the clinician coaching effectively encourages patients to improve fitness and lose weight. Fitness and weight reduction enabled some patients to prevent or reverse type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and improve quality of life.
Our Get In Shape! Program Has These 3 Components
Virtual Lifestyle Management (VLM)
The VLM program shows patients how to set daily target goals of step count, activity minutes, and activity calories. In the morning, patients attach the Lifecorder and go about their daily activities. They check the Lifecorder at the end of the day to see their step count and activity minutes. To track progress toward goals, patients can enter this data from the Lifecorder into the VLM program. The program organizes the actual data compared to the target goals and also calculates activity calories and total calories. As an example, daily target goals may be 5,000 steps a day, 30 minutes of activity and an expenditure of 200 calories. The actual data from the Lifecorder may show the patient took 4,000 steps, did 20 minutes of activity, and burned 150 calories. In this example, actual activity was slightly below target goals and the patient should increase activity the next day. The Lifecorder stores data so patients can track daily, weekly and monthly progress toward goals.
