Consultations

The basis for identifying and obtaining a sustainable wellness balance is a baseline consultation and appropriate follow up. All related testing can typically be done during the consultation for immediate feedback and discussion. Ann holds certifications in childhood, adolescent and adult weight management, and office hours are available in close-in Bethesda, MD. Once clients become active, progress can be monitored on-line, anywhere in the world. The current client base covers both coasts, the Midwest, Southwest and Southeast.

 

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Testing and Monitoring

Whether you are on an active program to optimize your peak athletic performance or you are simply in need of establishing your metabolic baseline for an optimal wellness program, the fifteen minute, in office, test using the most modern equipment helps to establish and monitor changes to daily caloric needs.

 

Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculation and Automated Body Fat Measurements

Wellness and weight management is not simply a matter of weight but finding the right weight for your physique and activity level. The Body Mass Index is a simple calculation indicating the relationship between height and weight. To reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and cancer, getting to and maintaining a BMI of less than 25 is optimal. Using the same equipment, a body fat assessment can be done in a matter of seconds in the same time as the BMI measurement.

 

 

Weight Management

With weight goals and medical conditions in mind and a well calibrated plan, it is then a process of education, monitoring, reinforcement and adjustment to get you where you want to be. My Wellness practice has a variety of online tools, visual aids, reporting formats and consultative styles to help you along the way ... and, once there, to stay there, sustainably.

 

Sports Nutrition

Whether you are an accomplished athlete or a casual exerciser, Ann can set up a program for you tailored to the individual needs of your sport. Adolescent needs are different from adult needs as are the rigors and priorities of the sports undertaken at each level. Ann has many years of exerience working with Certified sports trainers and can coordinate a program and progress with coaches and professionals with which you might already be working.
