Excess body fat and physical inactivity has been associated with the development of hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, depression and anxiety, osteoarthritis, respiratory and sleep problems and certain cancers; just to name a few! Approximately 70% of Australians aged 15 years and over are classified as sedentary or having low exercise levels.
With so much information in the general media about weight loss it can be difficult to know what to believe and where to start. The TSIC Active team provides a practical approach to weight loss rather than a quick fix! Our team of Exercise Physiologists enables us to provide you with expert advice and treatment in some of the underlying conditions leading to weight gain, such as metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome and certain medications. We take into account your individual needs and goals, medical history and lifestyle factors which enable us to develop an individualized weight loss program that fits into your lifestyle and most importantly is maintainable.
No you do not need a referral, but you might qualify for an Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC), and your GP can help set that up for you. Contact us today and find out how TSIC can help you with your weight loss goals. Please call us at 97839990 or book an appointment online.
