Exercise and Weight Loss
The role of exercise in weight loss — building a stronger body
People who lose weight and keep it off have regular exercise in common. This doesn't mean running marathons — it can be as simple as taking a walk every day, or playing with the dog or the kids. The bottom line is that moving your body burns calories, builds muscles, improves your mood, increases endurance, and leads to a leaner, stronger body.
Knowing you need exercise and finding a plan that works for you are two different things. That's where the fitness centers, specialists, trainers, and equipment at Methodist Health System come in.
Our fitness specialist can help you develop, plan, and stick with an exercise program that works for you. Our fitness facilities are designed with comfort, accessibility, and relaxation in mind. You won't find mirrored walls, loud music, or high pressure, just an inviting environment for improving your strength, flexibility, and stamina — your health.
