Supporting your 2-Step and Quick 20 weight-loss efforts by emphasizing physical activity that suits your lifestyle.

Exercise is essential to a healthy life. At The Hernried Center, we’ve created an exercise program that will transition you to a level of activity that’s both enjoyable and an effective tool for maintaining your target weight. Also, our program is optional (but highly encouraged!) and doesn’t require a gym membership — we focus on fitness strategies that complement your interests.

Our 4-step exercise program opens your life to new activities and experiences with your family and friends.

Improving your cardiovascular health, muscle tone and personal discipline are all great results of regular physical activity. But the people closest to us matter most in life. And countless patients have told us that after improving their physical fitness, they were able to bond with their husbands, wives and children in ways that were previously inaccessible, such as by spending time outdoors.

How does it work? By following our progressive, 4-step program, we can take you from a completely sedentary lifestyle to enjoying regular exercise. Here’s how:

  1. Week 1 – We reserve your first week for planning your exercise routine. Taking the time to properly apply our program to your individual needs is a crucial step toward establishing long-lasting exercise habits.
  2. Weeks 2 & 3 – We define “victory” during this period as sticking to the initial steps of your program with minimal deviation. This stabilizes your routine and builds a solid foundation for steady progress in the coming weeks.
  3. Weeks 4 to 9 – After you’ve stabilized your routine, it’s time to start building. We’ll slowly progress the intensity, duration or frequency of your exercise until you reach your goal.
  4. Week 10 & Beyond – At this point, you’ve reached your first exercise goal! If you’d like to continue to progress, nobody’s holding you back. However, this is the point where you’re exercising enough to meet the requirements for healthy living.

Work one-on-one with our exercise specialists to plan your progression, determine your caloric needs and set the perfect goals for your body.

In just three appointments with our exercise specialist, you’ll have a thorough understanding of your body and will be well on your way to building a positive relationship with exercise. Here’s what we’ll cover at your appointments:

  • At your initial 60-minute consultation, we’ll have a thorough discussion about your exercise history, weight-loss progress and any significant personal details that will affect your fitness plan. This appointment is included in the cost of your weight-loss program.
  • Your second appointment will involve a body composition analysis. Our advanced measurement equipment uses ultrasound to determine the exact makeup of your body, which helps us determine your precise goal weight. This appointment is also included in the cost of your weight-loss program.
  • Finally, we’ll perform a resting energy expenditure (REE) test at your third appointment. Once you’ve reached your goal weight, this test will accurately measure the number of calories you need to consume each day to maintain your weight. Many patients are nervous about increasing their calories, but this test provides an objective mechanism to verify that it’s safe to do so.
