Third Doctor-Assisted Fitness and Nutrition Program Launches with the Geraghty Family Practice
CENTENNIAL, CO September 20, 2006 –
Beginning today, patients of the Geraghty Family Practice will be able to participate in a revolutionary weight management program. Patients who are overweight and who are looking for an alternative to surgeries and medications will be eligible to participate in the Physicians Fitness Coach (PFC) program. Patients receive a customized fitness and nutrition program based on their preferences and abilities which is then monitored by Dr. Geraghty and the staff at Physicians Fitness Coach.
“We are very excited to see the level of enthusiasm of the Geraghty Family Practice staff who will be promoting our program to their patients,” said Courtney Lake, Personal Trainer and Client Manager for Physicians Fitness Coach. “Other participating doctor’s offices have seen great results by prescribing this program to their patients. We know it works and with the help of a physician, patients will have tremendous success.”
“It’s always refreshing to hear people talk intelligently about wellness,” said Dr. Geraghty. “My staff is enthusiastic about sharing this program with our patients and we look forward to a long and successful relationship with Physicians Fitness Coach.”
The Web site, www.physiciansfitnesscoach.com, was created by Denver-based incentaHEALTH, a health care technology company that created a unique patent-pending weight loss program. “incentaHealth’s patent-pending technology focuses not only on losing excess pounds, but on working with participants individually to reshape their eating and exercise habits through interactive e-mail coaching and physician supervision.” Said Jack Rule, CEO of incentaHEALTH. “The program we created through The Geraghty Family Practice complements the hands-on doctor supervision provided by a primary care/whole health program.”
Participants will have their own secure login and personal account on the Physicians Fitness Coach website. Upon enrollment, members are asked a series of fundamental questions such as fitness level (foundation, intermediate or advanced) and whether they work out at home or in a gym. Members also must provide their height, weight, measurements, age and gender. Our enrollment form asks participants for their current barriers and what motivates them. Based on what the participant chooses, we then customize their emails to help them overcome the barriers and to help keep them motivated. Customized fitness and nutrition program is then emailed to the individual daily and includes their workout plan and suggested meal plan, tips and motivation for success.
The cost of the program is $34.95 per month. The program is less than the average cost of a single personal training session and comparable to popular commercial weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig. The program also includes 2 free doctor visits per year with Dr. Geraghty as well as cash incentives for losing weight. Physicians Fitness Coach encourages participants to utilize one of the trainers on staff at PFC for assistance throughout their program. “We’re here to help in anyway we can,” said Valerie Dascenza, Personal Trainer for the PFC program. “Many participants appreciate the accountability and guidance we provide; and see their goals reached through every facet of our program.”
