Life Health Solutions
Design a Healthier You
Phase IV wants to help you improve the quality of your life for you and your family.
Maybe you’re a 60-year-old businessman with cardiovascular disease. Or your child has struggled with their weight and maintaining a healthy diet. Or you’re a grandmother who wants to overcome her arthritis, and play with your new grandchild. Or you’re a thirty-something new mother who wants to get back into shape. No matter your age, abilities, or goals, Phase IV provides Life Health Solutions to help you acquire the healthy personal lifestyle you’ve always wanted.
As Americans, we enjoy our independence and freedom to live our life as we desire.
Unfortunately, for many, the quality of life we’ve worked so hard to achieve is compromised by health problems and physical limitations. In fact, 70% of deaths each year are from preventable diseases, according to the U.S. Surgeon General’s office.
Has your doctor prescribed exercise and better eating habits to reverse and manage your health risks?
Where do you start? What kinds of exercise are best for you? How often? What diet should you follow? Should you stretch? Do you need to weight train?

We will work together to re-engineer your body with your personal program, based on your unique physiology.
