Three generations eating outdoors togetherOne of our greatest passions at Krauza Family Chiropractic is helping patients stay fit and healthy. In addition to chiropractic care and nutrition counseling, we offer body composition analysis for effective weight loss, wellness challenges and physical conditioning.

Go Beyond the Scale

Keto, paleo, South Beach, the list goes on and on. If you’ve tried these or other diets but don’t feel like anything is working, that’s because your scale is to blame. Your weight is composed of muscle, fat, and water. To effectively lose weight, you need to shed excess body fat, versus overall body weight. Weight loss isn’t the same as fat loss. Instead of measuring how heavy you are, we use body composition analysis to track how healthy you are.

We use the InBody 570, which accurately measures your body composition in less than 45 seconds. The tool prints out a results sheet that lists out your body composition components, measuring your progress over time.

With the tool, I can tell someone, ‘look, you’ve lost 10 pounds of body fat and you’ve also gained 10 pounds of lean tissue. Your net weight didn’t change at all. But look how much leaner you are. Look how much your body fat percentage went down. Look how your visceral fat levels went down.’ – Dr. Krauza.

We do two wellness challenges, one leading into spring and one at the end of summer leading into fall. The challenges are about 12 weeks along. The whole point behind these challenges is to get people outside their comfort zone. We want them to try something new that they wouldn’t do on their own.

The challenges are done in a group setting for accountability purposes and relate-ability purposes. Each challenge has different objectives, but we’re measuring the same things. We’re looking for different biometrics.

We have pre measurements and we have post measurements and usually, there’s a winner. There’s often a cash prize to provide an added incentive.

A springboard for living a healthy life

One of the greatest benefits people can experience from participating in a wellness challenge is being able to take what they learned and continue with those lifestyle habits. Dr. Krauza lets participants know that if they follow the guidelines, people can enjoy a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their life.

There is a cost to the challenge (between $160 and $200). For more information, contact Krauza Family Chiropractic.

Team Adrenaline is a year-round program held exclusively outdoors in a private group setting. No equipment, machines or devices are used, just your body. We focus purely on functional fitness movement patterns. Team Adrenaline is ideal for athletes of all levels.

If you find yourself bored with the same workout routines, you’ll love Team Adrenaline. That’s because the workouts are always different. You’ll also receive motivation and support to keep going.

A community connection

Going to the gym can feel lonely or intimidating. One participant, a man in his early 60s, told Dr. Krauza, “This is the biggest group of nonjudgmental people I’ve ever seen in my entire life.” With Team Adrenaline, you can enjoy being part of a friendly community of people who want to get fit and healthy alongside you. You’ll quickly see that people genuinely look out for one another and encourage each other to challenge themselves.

Bring your kids

You also can bring your children while you work out. And if they’re under 18, they can work out for free! We find that this is an excellent way for parents to model positive behavior. When their children come and see Mom or Dad working out, it becomes a family experience. Kids will likely want to make fitness a priority too.
