The Lifestyle Enhancement Visit
The first appointment, or “Lifestyle Enhancement Visit,” is a two-hour evaluation, which includes:
- A “Bod Pod” evaluation: Clients enter an enclosed pod for a detailed analysis of their body composition - fat, muscle and water weight
- A treadmill stress test for fitness assessment and exercise prescription with a Henry Ford exercise physiologist
- Nutrition counseling with a Henry Ford registered dietitian
- An overview of findings and implementation planning with an RN Integrative Wellness Advocate and Certified Wellness Practitioner
- At the end of the evaluation, each client will receive personalized prescriptions for a Nutrition Plan and Exercise Plan, which is based on the most recent guidelines from the American Heart Association.
The Lifestyle Enhancement Visit is covered by most insurance plans.
Postpartum Heart Program
Giving birth can be one of the most beautiful moments in a women’s life but, for some women with prior pregnancy–related complications, giving birth can present a higher risk for cardiovascular events in the 10-15 years following their pregnancy. Through the Postpartum Heart Program, our team of specialists is committed to addressing these risk factors and providing our clients with the tools to minimize their future cardiovascular risks.
