To that end, the staff work closely with each individual LifeFit consumer, providing opportunities to increase knowledge and understanding as well as work on fitness and nutrition. For example, while a consumer is walking on the treadmill, the staff physiologist explains that the exercise burns calories, which in turn helps the consumer to lose weight. As the consumer lifts weights, he learns that doing so builds muscles to help him remain strong and independent.
