Abbotsford’s Live Well Clinic offers supervised exercise and health coaching in a lively, energetic atmosphere with like-minded people who care.

You can Live Well with the right exercise program

Safe, manageable steps will help you stick with the program

What’s your prescription for exercise?

If it’s been years, or even decades, since you’ve exercised and you don’t know where to start, or you’re keen to increase your fitness to help manage a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure, it’s time to Live Well.

Embarking on their third year in Abbotsford, the Live Well Clinic offers supervised exercise and health coaching for people with chronic health conditions.

“We act as the bridge between your lifestyle goals and the actions you take to achieve them. ” says clinic director Julie Elliott, noting that whether members come to the clinic through a doctor’s referral or on their own, they appreciate Live Well’s safe, evidence-based approach.

Today’s best practices approach fitness as medicine, with a specific dose depending on your goals and conditions, Elliott explains. With 150 minutes of moderate exercise the minimum recommended weekly dose, attending two one-hour sessions at Live Well is a great start, augmented with activities like walking and home exercises created by the Live Well team.

The right expertise is key

Having clinical exercise physiologists form the foundation of Live Well Exercise Clinic – from founder Sara Hodson to your local Abbotsford team – goes a long way to helping members feel comfortable with their workouts, especially if they haven’t exercised for a long time, Elliott says.

“We’re able to design a program based on your needs, follow your progress and if you’re having any issues or concerns, we can catch it. We want to help people feel safe.”

Here’s how it works:

You begin with a program consult where we discuss your medical history, then a baseline assessment, then we design an individual program based on your medical history, health goals and needs. No matter where you are in your fitness journey, someone is always available to answer any questions or concerns.

“We hope for long-term lifestyle change, it’s important to start slow and tweak as we go,” Elliott says, noting that with times available from early morning to early evening, Live Well makes it easy to invest in your health. “But by scheduling a regular appointment for fitness, we provide not only the guidance, but accountability.”

You’ll join others in small group sessions, typically around 10 people, because research says community is the number one motivator for habit formation, but each person works on their own individual program, with exercise cards designed by our clinical exercise physiologist that help you track your program and progress.

Expect a lively, energetic atmosphere with like-minded people who care. “We make exercise fun,” Elliott notes. “We become a bit of a family.”
