Weight Management/Healthy Nutrition:
-AWC offers metabolic testing to assess your individual energy expenditure. This test measures the number of calories your body uses every day. Based on these results and the amount of physical activity and exercise you do, AWC educators will help you to determine how much you should eat. By knowing exactly how many calories your body requires, we can create an effective and realistic weight management program just for you.
-AWC provides courses in basic nutrition to include topics such as reading food labels, quick and healthy meals, grocery shopping tips, and how to eat to your metabolic rate. Knowledge is power- the more you know, the more you can navigate through unhealthy food choices!

State of the art equipment is used to assess flexibility, muscular strength, cardio-respiratory (VO2max) fitness levels, and body composition (BodPod and Ultrasound). In conjunction with fitness testing, patients receive a comprehensive report that shows current fitness levels as well as education and an individualized exercise counseling session on how to meet their specific goals.

As AWC is an appointment-based center, it is imperative that our clients and staff establish a cooperative partnership to adhere to appointment times. AWC will make every effort to see our clients in a timely manner. We strongly encourage clients to arrive 10 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to allow for completion of paperwork. Patients who arrive late may be asked to reschedule. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, please call ahead to reschedule. This will assist in timely client flow, decrease wait times, and allow other clients to book appointments.
In order to provide the highest accessibility to our clients, we request clients to call to cancel appointments rather than “no show”. Your unused, canceled appointment may be used for another client. Units may be notified of beneficiaries who demonstrate a pattern of failing to cancel appointments in a timely manner.
To cancel and appointment, please call (915) 742-9566.
