Programs and Services

Diet and exercise are the most important and modifiable lifestyle determinants of health. ENHI is originally focusing on three programs that implement individualized exercise and nutritional interventions with regular evaluation for members of the community who have been diagnosed with chronic diseases or who are aging. Online registration is now available.

ENHI Programs and Services

 

Muscle Matters Program

As people age, there is an inevitable loss of skeletal muscle, resulting in the reduction of strength and power. Most adults reach their peak muscle mass around the age of 40, but without proper nutrition and exercise, people can lose up to 3-5 percent of their muscle mass after the age of 40. That's why countermeasures taken earlier in life can prevent disability later. Muscle Matters is a monitored resistance, metabolic conditioning exercise and nutritional program designed to decrease or reverse the muscle strength losses that arise in the course of aging.

ENHI Muscle Matters Program

Eligibility

Community members, faculty member or staff member 40 years and older. You may need clearance from your physician before starting the program. For more information, call 281-283-3381 or email us at ENHI@uhcl.edu.


Metabolic Health Program

Today, about two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese, and it's estimated that up to 50 percent of adults are insulin resistant. This program is a combined resistance, metabolic conditioning and nutritional program designed to improve insulin sensitivity, and decrease fat weight when needed.

UHCL Metabolic Health Program

Eligibility

Community member, faculty or staff member with any of the following: diabetes, insulin resistance, obesity, cardiovascular disease, hypertension or abnormal triglyceride levels. You may need clearance from your physician before starting the program. For more information, call 281-283-3381 or email us at ENHI@uhcl.edu.


Resiliency Program

Cancer and other diseases that result in muscle wasting (loss) can reduce endurance, function, and quality of life. The Resiliency Program is a monitored exercise program for individuals undergoing treatment or in remission from cancer and other muscle wasting diseases designed to recondition or maintain cardiorespiratory endurance, muscle strength, mass, and functional capabilities.

Resiliency Program

Eligibility

Community member, faculty or staff who is undergoing treatment for cancer, in remission, or who has other cachectic diseases that result in muscle loss and function. You may need clearance from your physician before starting the program. For more information, call 281-283-3381 or email us at ENHI@uhcl.edu.
