Train one on one with a medical exercise specialist (mes) in a private environment designed to provide comfort and give you the tools necessary to reach your fitness goals.
What are Medical Exercise Services?
In its simplest form it is the development and implementation of safe and effective fitness programming for clients with special population and post-rehab conditions
Important Note: Our services are not a replacement or substitution for the services of medical professionals such as; physicians, chiropractors or physical therapists. We do however seek to be part of the continuum of patient care so that they will have better and more functional outcomes
What is a Medical Exercise Specialist (MES)?
A MES is a fitness professional who not only works with the typical client looking to improve their health and fitness level; but who also has gained the knowledge and skills to work with clients who present with wide range of medical conditions. These atypical clients are "post rehab" in that they are referred to the fitness professional after they have completed a rehabilitation program or have been otherwise medically stabilized and now need a fitness program tailored to their particular medical condition.
As MES we assess and then develop safe and effective exercise and conditioning programs for clients with cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, neurological and metabolic disorders after discharge from medical, chiropractic care and/or physical therapy. So in this respect MES is only practiced in a sub acute or chronic setting. The programs developed are designed to address residual functional deficits remaining after the diagnosis and treatment of the disease and the goal is always to improve the overall function of the client.
We differ from personal trainers in that we receive extensive training in every aspect of pathology, clinical anatomy, exercise prescription and assessment guidelines for more than 60 conditions affecting the upper and lower extremities, the spine, and the cardiovascular and neurological systems.
