If you are trying to live a truly healthy and fit lifestyle, diet alone is a sure fire way to set yourself up for failure. While diet is an essential part of any health plan, you must not ignore the fitness aspect of health – which includes keeping up with a regular exercise routine. Because it is so important for plastic surgery patients to maintain their health before and after surgery, Dr. Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery would like to introduce Daryl Madison, personal trainer and fitness expert in the local Atlanta area.
Daryl Madison is an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer and owner of Lifestyle Fitness- an in-home personal training company. With 10 years of experience in personal training and numerous certifications, Daryl can help any patient get on the road to the best shape of their life.
For those who don’t have the time or money for personal training, but still need and want help with a regular exercise routine, Daryl has created the Chair-A-Cise exercise DVD series. Chair-A-Cise is a fitness program that is customizable to ALL fitness levels; and the unique thing about this fitness program is that all of the exercises can be performed while seated in a chair. This makes it perfect for beginners, the overweight, the elderly or anyone easing into an exercise routine after surgery. By adding simple hand weights the exercises, Chair-A-Cise also transforms into a rigorous fitness routine, challenging even to the most fit and athletic of people.
Daryl’s fitness expertise has been featured in several Atlanta Journal Constitution and DeKalb News Sun articles and he has also been featured on an episode of CW Network’s Ultimate Makeover series.
Feel free to contact Daryl at 404-272-3996 if you would like to set up a personal training session and visit the Chair-A-Cise website if you are interested in DVDs.
This blog should serve as a reminder that you cannot neglect your health, especially when getting a cosmetic surgery procedure! Visit our recently launched Health and Wellness Section for more exercise tips, nutrition tips, and healthy recipes.
In every consultation, Dr. Whiteman tells his patients that he will do his part in enhancing their appearance with a cosmetic surgery procedure, but is careful to remind his patients that it is of utmost importance that they do their part to maintain the results. For ALL patients, that means maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Especially for liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast reduction patients, keeping up with regular diet and exercise is the only way to maintain their results. But even cosmetic surgeries of the face, patients must maintain their health – such as quitting smoking – in order to facilitate healing.
Because plastic surgery and healthy lifestyles go hand-in-hand, Dr. Whiteman decided to launch a health and wellness section to southernplasticsurgery.com. The health and wellness section will provide patients with diet and exercise tips including: Common Diet Mistakes, Tips for Diet Success, Hidden Calories in Foods, Healthy Snacks, and a feature on how to correctly read food labels.
The health and wellness section will also contain a section of healthy, delicious, and low calorie recipes. All of the recipes have been personally made and approved by members of the Southern Plastic Surgery staff.
Dr. Whiteman hopes that, with the help of the health and wellness section of his website, that all his patients will make strides towards healthy, fit lifestyles to keep them looking and feeling their best!
This past Sunday March 28th, CW 69’S Focus Atlanta featured The Sport of Giving (TSOG) founder Sheila Stevens. Sheila was on the show to discuss The Sport of Giving’s broadened scope and recent switch to take the organization national.
Just this year, The Sport of Giving Board, of which Dr. David Whiteman of Southern Plastic Surgery serves as spokesperson and medical director, decided to expand the boundaries of TSOG to help more people than ever! While initially, the organization was founded to raise money and awareness for women with breast cancer, the organization will now work to support ALL women’s cancers. Also part of the change was expanding the organization beyond the local Atlanta area. Seeing the success that TSOG has had in the Georgia community, the board wanted to give other communities a way to make the same positive impact in their own city. Therefore The Sport of Giving developed a template coined “The Sport of Giving in A Box” detailing the steps and work involved in holding a similar TSOG event in another community.
What is special about The Sport of Giving is that, even though the organization is going national, all of the money raised remains local to benefit the respective community in which it was raised. Unlike other national organization, a percentage of money does not go to benefit a national headquarters – but will go directly to the people in the community that worked to raise it!
