Intervention Areas

Exercise Physiology and Weight Management focus on body composition and its relationship with the Metabolic System, deepening its content on the body’s responses to different stimuli, arising from physical activity, the type of diet, stress and lifestyle.

The Exercise Physiologist is prepared to intervene, prescribe and supervise patients with different pathologies or during different stages of life.

During a Physiology Consultation, the causes of the difficulty in managing weight are diagnosed. A Body Composition Assessment is carried out, through adipose folds and body perimeter measurements, where the amount of lean mass and fat mass is quantified. Your basal metabolism and healthy weight goals are also defined. Based on this anamnesis, it is possible to draw up a training and physical activity plan, as well as the best food strategies.
