Design a lifestyle change program that works for you

At Rush, we want to be your partner in lifestyle change: Whether you want to improve your overall health, lose weight, become more active or regain momentum after a setback. We offer comprehensive options for people of all ages, offering guidance and coaching every step of the way. 

Programs that address a range of health concerns

Our programs are based on the latest research on successful, long-term weight loss and lifestyle change. We’re here for you no matter what your goals or needs:

  • If you are overweight. If you want to lose weight — or if your doctor has recommended weight loss — we’ll help you find the right path and give you the tools and support to be successful. All you need to know is that you're ready to make a change.
     
  • If you previously had bariatric surgery and have regained some or all of your weight.
     
  • If you’re a cancer survivor and would like to reduce your risk of recurrence.
     
  • If you are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant and have been told weight loss would be helpful.
     
  • If you have a chronic health condition and want to take action to improve your related risks. Our program can help patients with many health concerns, including the following:
  • Arthritis — including patients trying to reduce joint pain, prepare for joint replacement surgery or lose enough weight to qualify for joint replacement
  • Heart disease and heart disease risk factors, such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure
  • Depression and other mood disorders
  • Diabetes and prediabetes
  • Liver or kidney disease — including patients awaiting transplantation  

Comprehensive weight management and lifestyle medicine services

Medical weight loss

Our board-certified obesity medicine specialist will help you create a weight loss plan that incorporates dietary changes, exercise and — if necessary — medications. Your plan will be tailored to your needs and based on research on the most effective ways to shed extra pounds and keep them off. Current patients may also ask about follow-up video visits with our specialist.

Fitness program

In partnership with Fitness Formula Clubs, Rush offers a program to help you incorporate exercise into your life.

Behavioral counseling

Psychologists can help you set and keep your weight loss and lifestyle goals. In one-on-one sessions, they’ll help you with such things as eating mindfully, dealing with stress, making time to be active, and learning how to find the love and support you need while you work to achieve your goals.

Nutrition

Registered dietitians are available both at Rush and through the Fitness Formula Club partnership to teach nutrition basics and help you fit healthy eating into your life.
