While our in-house knowledge and experience is extensive and enables us to effectively assess and help most people get on the right track quickly and achieve their goals, we have no reservations about seeking help from the medical community and other health practitioners whenever it will help us to help our clients better.
If you're nervous about starting an exercise program or unsure if it would be safe, because of a recent injury or illness, chronic pain or physical limitations due to past injuries, please come and see us.
We have significant rehabilitation experience, and are able to work with or around many medical conditions. We also maintain alliances with some highly skilled practitioners within the Sports Medicine community who can quickly diagnose any unexplained pain or limitations you may have, and work with us to resolve the problem quickly.
