The correct prescription of exercise will constitute a fundamental part of the treatment of most diseases and is known to:

No medication or pharmacological treatment possesses the same effect as physical exercise. However physical exercise in the clinical setting must be based on sound scientific knowledge and should therefore only be prescribed by qualified personal trainers.
Physical exercise and nutrition has been officially recognized as one of the most effective tools to prevent, contain and alleviate many of the most prevalent chronic diseases (hypertension, diabetes, obesity, dyslipidemia, osteoporosis, cancer, fibromyalgia, etc.), most which are also linked to a sedentary lifestyle.

“I had been obese since my early 20’s, but didn’t find out that there are different types of obesity and ways to treat it until I contacted Activate. Working with Maya has made me not only lose lot of weight, but she has taught me things that no doctor or endocrinologist ever taught me about my obesity type before. Thank you Maya, for helping me change, and for the endless support and encouragement you gave me.” Annabel
“Durante años pensaba que no podía hacer ejercicio debido a una enfermedad. Un amigo me recomendó a Sascha y su equipo y ellos me demonstraron lo contrario. Me siento muy seguro entrenando con uno de ellos a mi lado y estoy definitivamente en mejor forma. Mark C.
