The best of both worlds gives you one-on-one time with a highly-skilled Certified Personal Trainer...
A Medical Exercise Specialist is an allied health professional who can assess your health and wellness with an understanding of dozens of conditions affecting your arms, legs, and spine, as well as your cardiovascular system and neurological system. Our Medical Exercise Specialists will create a safe and effective fitness and conditioning program tailored to a variety of chronic conditions, perfect for someone recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery, or who has other physical limitations. We call this tailored plan your exercise prescription.
Our Certified Personal Trainers and Medical Exercise Specialists will listen, guide and support you on your journey to becoming more fit and healthy, helping you gain confidence with a training program tailored to your health and fitness goals.
Exercise can benefit everyone far beyond a desire to lose weight. A regular exercise program of just three hours each week can significantly lower your risk of developing age-related chronic conditions, and in some cases reduce or reverse the effects of an existing condition.
Results vary for every person, but exercise can improve your immune system, your heart health, your bone density, your digestion, and in some cases it may lower your risk for conditions like heart disease, diabetes, blood pressure, obesity, some cancers, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Exercise can also improve your mood, self-esteem and confidence, it can relieve stress and reduce symptoms of illness and pain, it can improve your memory, your concentration, and even help you sleep better.
Many people visit Vital Steps® for rehab training once they have been discharged from their physiotherapist. We work with you and build on your physiotherapy to aid in your recovery, tailoring your training so it supports and rehabilitates your body through the healing process.
Recently, more people are visiting Vital Steps® for “pre-hab” to prepare themselves for surgery. Having a healthy heart, strong muscles and an efficient metabolism are key for minimizing your downtime and bouncing back after surgery.
If you have the will to improve your health and wellness through customized fitness programs, we will help you find the way to do it.
Every person’s situation is different, and we know there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
