General Description of the Program: After consulting with your physician, an individualized exercise program is designed based upon your needs. A pre and post fitness assessment is done such as testing your walking endurance or doing a low level strength test.
Depending upon your preference, you may exercise at home, in your own health club or in our clinic with more individualized supervision.
