This time of year, people are consumed with getting in shape and are looking for someone help them achieve their results. So in your quest to find the perfect person to help you, I want to offer some information that may help you make the right decision. I often get the question, what is “Medical Fitness Pros” and are you the right person to help me? Let me explain what we do.
Medical Fitness Pros was established for one reason, to help those that need it the most. You probably don’t know this, but most certifications that personal trainers take are weekend courses. (I’m serious about that. For instance, the AFAA certification is a 3 day weekend course.) And while I don’t mind if someone takes that course, that should not be the only course they take before they begin to work with clients.
I personally feel that the people who need personal trainers the most are those who have trouble losing weight, may have various joint aches and pains, possibly back pain, and need to get in shape without worrying about having an injury in the process. Often times they have high cholesterol or high blood pressure, and many people also have diabetes too. These are conditions that are not covered in detail in a weekend personal training course. So if you are trying to get in shape and overcome various medical conditions, shouldn’t you seek out someone with knowledge of the various conditions you are dealing with?
If you are only trying to lose 10 pounds and just want someone to push you as hard as you can handle, you should consider joining a boot camp or working with a personal trainer with a basic certification. But if you are trying to learn how to workout on your own and want to overcome obstacles that always seem to keep you from achieving your goal, we are the right ones to contact. Here are some of the services we offer.
Semi-Private Personal Training – This is the closest we will ever come to a boot camp. This is taught in small groups of 4 or less so we can teach you as you go through your workout. You will have your own custom workout, independent from the rest of the participants, and we will help you with your nutrition and cardiovascular routine to ensure you get the weight loss results you are after. You will learn how to workout, what you are capable of, and best of all, you can achieve the results you are after in short, dynamic workouts. Learn More
General Personal Training – If you want to get in shape, but not share your time with anyone, we do offer regular personal training. Our personal training service is similar to other services offered out there, except we work hard to teach you what we are doing so you can become independent on your own. We don’t want to babysit you for the rest of your life, so instead we teach you so you can become independent of us in as little time as possible. If you are wanting someone to give you a jumpstart on the exercises YOU need, this is the perfect program for you. Learn More.
Medical Fitness Programs – Let’s say you’ve had an injury in your past or are suffering from back pain. You know you need to get in shape, but you don’t want to make your pain worse. This is our specialty. We do a full fitness musculoskeletal evaluation and design a program that not only helps you get in better shape, but helps you overcome your various ailments as well. If you are suffering from Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, or High Cholesterol, we create programs that are designed to reverse your health complications. We don’t take over the care your doctor provides, but we work with your doctors, physical therapist, or chiropractor to ensure you are enrolled in a safe, effective program that will help you restore your health. It’s amazing the amount of lives that have been changed with this program.
Medical Referral Programs – We are one of only a few fitness studios in the United States that receive prescription referrals from various physicians, physical therapists, and chiropractors. It’s something we are very proud of because it shows that the level of care we provide is at a level that many medical professionals trust us with their patients. In some cases, we can actually take medical insurance, which is normally unheard of for studios. We constantly communicate with the medical professional throughout the process and file the insurance claims for you. I only know of a handful of studios that offer this service throughout the United States, and we hope to set the standard for the future of healthcare.
