Beginning an exercise program to improve your function, health and fitness can be overwhelming especially when you have medical conditions that you are concerned about. We are accredited and certified fitness professionals and are specialists in the health and fitness field to help you sort out what is important and where to start. We help set short and long-term goals, choose a healthy lifestyle plan, and design and allocate appropriate and safe levels of physical activity and exercise. 

Clinical Personalized Exercise Training 

We have extensive experience training clients with often complex and multiple medical conditions such as diabetes (Type I and II), arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Sciatica, stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint replacements, cancer, frailty, balance and mobility disorders, fibromyalgia, frailty, low back pain, amputations, obesity, peripheral neuropathy, Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD and PVD), and more. We follow recommendations from physicians and other health care providers and for some clients we are part of their overall health care team. 

Transitioning from Physical Therapy

In order to retain the function you have gained through physical therapy you need to continue exercise and use those skills on a regular basis (two to three times per week) to maintain function. Our personal training services help clients progress in function and fitness well beyond to what they have gained through physical therapy. A personal training program can help optimize function and fitness and provide continued training in neuromuscular training, corrective exercise, resistance, flexibility, cardiovascular, balance and mobility training. To maximize health outcomes our personal trainers often train clients who simultaneously receive Home Health Services or Outpatient Physical Therapy.
