EXERCISE IS MEDICINE

This program is the development and implementation of fitness programming for clients that have been released from physical therapy, as advised by their doctor. It is also intended for clients who suffer from chronic diseases, disabilities and potentially debilitating medical conditions. Please know that our Post-Rehabilitation Fitness Specialist will not provide any aspect of medical treatment of a client’s condition.

The benefits from a comprehensive fitness program will improve your quality of life and increase independence in daily living. Using an individualized approach, we will be able to assess, motivate, educate and train clients of all ages regarding their specific health and fitness needs.
