Adult Weight Loss

The Physician’s Choice for Weight Loss® program offered by ReQuest Physical Therapy is more than just “diet and exercise.” Highly regarded for its success, and developed by our own Jeff Gilliam, PT, PhD, this unique program combines daily aerobic exercise with food journaling to help participants see first-hand how much they are moving and what they are eating. Garreth Smoak, PTA, INHC writes the delicious complementary recipes that accompany the program. Jeff and Garreth have helped thousands of people from all walks of life discover the pleasures that come from reaching a healthy body weight.

What’s more, we are located inside the award-winning Gainesville Health & Fitness. Being here provides participants with access to every conceivable piece of aerobic and strength training equipment, plus sports courts, full-service childcare, group exercise, aerobics and spin classes, and personal training.

Best of all, these programs are covered by most health insurance plans, especially when weight problems trigger common orthopedic complications such as joint pain or back pain. But if your insurance doesn’t cover the program, don’t worry. We’ll work with you on a flexible payment plan that works for you. Program classes are 4-6 weeks in length. Participants should come dressed in active clothing and be prepared to move and have fun.
