About the program
At Scottsdale Sports Medicine, our highly trained professionals are incredibly dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Our goal is to help you make health and fitness a lifestyle rather than thinking of it as just another “diet and exercise program.”
Our approach to health and well-being is a holistic one. We have a doctor, and an exercise physiologist highly integrated with our metabolic program. Our metabolic testing equipment is cutting edge and state of the art and our DEXA scanner is known as the gold standard for measuring body composition.
By using precise equipment to test your metabolism, all the guesswork is removed from the process of getting to you to your fitness and health goals in the most efficient and effective ways.
Our programs are 100% tailored to you because everybody is truly different and individuals have specific needs when it comes to our health. Dr. Carfagno also plays an essential role in the program because he closely monitors the medical aspect of your program from getting labs drawn to performing a stress test to monitoring trends. Throughout the program, we weigh-in our participants every two weeks to ensure that the program and you are on track.
We want to monitor and support you every step of the way with Accountability and encouragement. Accountability is the cornerstone for success in our program. By creating multiple devices from online dietary and exercise accounting, to SSMI’s ‘Big Brother’ email supervision, to every 2 week weigh-ins, there is no time to ‘let your guard down’. We also provide support by phone or email with whatever questions or concerns you may have regarding our program. Conveniently available right in Dr Carfagno’s office we offer prescription-grade Xymogen brand supplements, and to promote a thermogenic weight and fat loss state, we institute high quality and super concentrated Vitamin B12 and M.I.C. shots at your 2 week weigh-ins. And, for those that have the need for that extra help with emotional and subconscious eating, Dr. Carfagno will prescribe the medication Phentermine, an appetite suppressant to assist you.
By embarking on the SSMI Metabolic Program, you have made one of the best investments you can make in yourself! Keeps the investment going by dedicating yourself and allowing the experts at Dr Carfagno’s office to support, encourage and assist you. You are not alone in this process and we look forward to giving you the tools for the continual enhancement of your health and fitness for the rest of your life so you can live your best life possible.
