Weight Loss

Weight loss in Penticton!

You have clicked this link because you want to lose weight, feel healthier and maybe have more energy.

Have you ever though about how much you could improve your quality of life if you were able to lose weight, feel healthier and have more energy? A lot of us have that thought, but figuring out how to do so, and actually being successful, is challenging. That’s where we come in. Read on to find out how we can help you reach your weight loss goals and attain a healthy lifestyle.

Weight gain is caused by more than just eating too much or not exercising enough.

Healthy weight maintenance is about the right food choices and the right type of exercise for your body along with other lifestyle choices, such as sleeping patterns and bowel habits.


Losing weight can be daunting to do alone, and often it can be hard to know what to do or where to start. My job is to identify what is causing your weight gain, and from there to work on goals and solutions to help you keep your weight down and keep it there!

What are the benefits of losing weight?

  • To live longer
  • To do activities with comfort
  • To be a better parent/partner
  • To be happier
  • To fit into your skinny jeans

Some things that influence weight:

  • Bowel movements 
  • Amount of movement/activity compared to amount of sedentary time per day
  • Amount of food consumed
  • Amount of quality sleep
  • Level Stress

How to reach a healthy weight and stay there?

  • Find activities that you enjoy doing and a partner to do these activates with. Activities such as biking, walking, swimming, hiking and running are low cost. You also do not need a fancy gym to perform exercises, as a lot of exercises can be competed without equipment!
  • Get your whole family involved in a healthy lifestyle
  • Don’t weight yourself everyday! I recommend no more than once a month. 
  • Get proper sleep
  • Avoid artificial sugars and other fake foods which can contain ingredients that don’t fill us up and leave us craving more
  • Aim for most foods that do not come in a package. The closer to the natural state of food, the better
  • Read labels. If you don’t know what an ingredient is then your body probably doesn’t want it
  • Drink plenty of water

Dear friends,

As you will be aware, we are in the middle of a public health emergency due to the ongoing coronavirus/ COVID-19 pandemic. Following strong recommendations from both the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association in the last 24 hours, we have made the difficult decision to close our clinic until March 31st 2020. We believe that this is the ethically and socially responsible action to help ‘flatten the curve’ of the virus. We are trying to do our part to help take the pressure off the already overloaded Penticton Regional Hospital by preventing further spread.

Please note, we have NOT had any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our clinic. You can still book appointments with us for March 31st & onward, either on the phone at 250-493-1152 or on our online booking portal, located at the top of each of our webpages.

We understand that this may be an inconvenience, but we hope you can understand our decision in this unprecedented time. We will be working behind the scenes while our clinic is closed to make sure that all of your ICBC, WorkSafe BC and private claims are all being processed, and liaising with ICBC and WorkSafe as needed to extend treatment blocks which may end during our down time.

We are currently in the process of calling our patients to reschedule appointments, so don’t worry if you haven’t heard from us yet – we haven’t forgotten about you!

Again, we thank you for your understanding in this challenging time. We will keep you updated on the status of our clinic as the days and weeks unfold, and urge everyone to practice social distancing and keep updated on the current health advice from the Canadian government and health departments.

Looking forwards to seeing you all again on March 31st.

Best regards,

Chris Stokes,
Clinic Director and Registered Physiotherapist – March 17th, 2020
