The mission of Kickstart is to empower and equip Veterans with the tools to improve their fitness as connected to their overall health.
Veterans of all fitness levels welcome.
The series will provide four distinct exercise routines that will enable the Veteran to continue on their own, well after the series has ended. The focus will be cardio, strengthening and stability, which are evidence-based practices with proven benefits to a healthy lifestyle. Each class will be interactive and include an instructional portion to educate Veterans on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle that includes fitness.
The series will provide a “Personal Trainer” touch with motivation and energy that will add to the question we ask in Whole Health – “What Do You Want Your Health For?”
Per VA scheduling policy, if the patient does not show to scheduled appointment, his or her consult will be discontinued. This is a patient-driven program.
