Lifestyle Medicine is one of the fastest growing disciplines in healthcare that is seeking to change our medical systems from a sick care model to a disease prevention and reversal model by using lifestyle choices as first-line treatment. In this webinar we will introduce you to the field of LM (history, need, core concepts); describe the Six Pillars (physical activity/exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress, relationships and substance use) and the evidence-based positions on each; describe how this movement impacts/is relevant to fitness professionals (especially those that work with older adults); and how fitness professionals can leverage this movement to their advantage.

They can show up just on time and dart out of the class quickly, even not taking time to stretch. Why? Because they are MOTHERS who join our classes to take time out for themselves. Join Lisa, mother of two and international award winning clinical exercise physiologist, as she shares key ways group exercise leaders can support, encourage and lead this diverse and deserving group of women – both from a psychological and biomechanical perspective.
