At Future Fitness Centers, our main goal is to help our guests achieve the highest level of overall health, fitness and happiness. Health isn’t a goal that can be reached through a certain number of stair steps or squats; it is an ongoing process that involves tailoring your activities and diet to your body’s unique needs in order to make you feel and look your very best. In keeping with this variety of thinking, Future Fitness Centers offers all its members free monthly visits with Registered Dietitians – which means access to counseling for weight loss, fat reduction, meal plans and more. Sometimes keeping your diet in line with your fitness goals can be a daunting task, which is why it helps to have a qualified, professional team behind you, every step of the way.

To help you take advantage of the nutritional counseling available, we’ve outlined some of the ways our Registered Dietitians can help you optimize your health. An R.D. can help you…

…meet your individual needs. No one diet is perfect for everyone, just as no body is exactly the same. Depending on your fitness goals, an R.D. can design a plan that’s best suited to help your body work to its highest capabilities. Whether you’re working around a medical condition like diabetes or hypertension, training for a marathon or weightlifting competition, or simply looking to improve the way you feel, an R.D. can help outline your current diet’s deficiencies and map out a way for you to achieve the goals you’re working towards.

…take a safe approach. There are a myriad of ways that fad diets can go wrong, including but not limited to: provoking food allergies or eating disorders, raising blood pressure and cholesterol, causing weakness and poor nutrition, and failing to meet the macro- and micro-nutritional demands posed by strenuous training. The internet can make trendy diets seem like a miracle fix for anyone’s weight or health issues but, in reality, many of these diets cause predictable health problems and weight loss that at first may seem dramatic, but is often unsustainable. R.D.s don’t cherry-pick nutritional studies to support any specific diet, as is often found on internet forums; rather, as a part of their profession, they are constantly updated on the latest research regarding what works and what can potentially cause damage to your health.

…provide a psychological boost. Going into a new meal plan or diet on your own can seem disheartening if it feels like a shot in the dark. Wondering if you’ve chosen the best plan for you, or being uncertain if your hard work will even yield results, can be discouraging to the point of causing many individuals to give up. Simply knowing that you have a nutritional plan designed by professionals who understand your lifestyle and goals will be motivation to keep you going until you see the results you’ve been working towards.
