Nutrition Counseling

The best way to make long-term dietary change is to work with a professional. After completing an in-depth nutrition survey, you will sit down with your registered dietitian to create a pathway to improved health. Sports nutrition counseling and follow up appointments also available.

Nutritional services provided by Joyce Giammattei, DrPH, RD, CDE
For more information or to schedule an appointment for body composition analysis or nutrition counseling pick up a form at the Member Center or call Rachel Marcus, Health and Wellness Director at 545-9622 x3122 or


Ultrasound Body Composition Analysis

Body weight is not a clear indicator of good health because it does not distinguish how many pounds are from fat and how many are from lean body mass. You can get an accurate measurement of fat and muscle distribution with ultrasound technology. No more uncomfortable calipers or inaccurate and sensitive bio-electrical impedance scale. Results are comparable to underwater weighing and air displacements. With ultrasound imaging we are able to track changes in fat loss and muscle gain and provide unique scan images that clearly show superficial and deep adipose tissue layers. Having this information can motivate you to attain your ideal shape.
