What is an
An Exercise Physiologist is not just a "personal trainer".
An Exercise Physiologist is an allied health professional who utilizes exercise and nutritional modalities to help clients become healthier. The Fitness Doctor is also trained to help manage and prevent the risk of chronic diseases or conditions.
Don't trust your health to a "personal trainer."
Rely on a qualified, healthcare professional.
The Fitness Doctor works with individuals of all ages and abilities.
We have helped hundreds of clients realize their health and fitness dreams.
Ranging from athletes, to the elderly, your goals are within reach.
Alzheimer's DiseaseBeing active can help people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia (ADRD) feel better, move better and sleep better.
Regular physical activity helps those with ADRD develop better strength, balance, walking speed
and endurance. It also reduces physical decline and preserves day-to-day function, including
sleeping habits. When people with ADRD become active, safety is a priority.
AneurysmExercise can reduce
some of the major risk factors for aneurysms such as high blood pressure, obesity and inflammation.
Physical activity can:
• lower inflammation that might help slow the growth of an aneurysm
• improve the strength of your blood vessel walls
• lower your blood pressure
• help you maintain a healthy weight
AsthmaAsthma causes narrowing of the airways that can lead to shortness of breath, wheezing, chest
tightness and coughing. Being active reduces how bad and how often asthma attacks occur, resulting in fewer emergency room visits and less worry. As you become more fit, you will be less out-of-breath
Atrial FibrillationPeople with atrial fibrillation (AF) who are more fit have fewer of the bad consequences related to their AF. Being active also reduces risk factors that lead to heart attacks, strokes, or more serious heart rhythm problems. Regular physical activity can increase your energy level and stamina,
improving your ability to do the daily and fun activities you enjoy.
People with AF can exercise safely and will benefit greatly from medium-intensity physical activity.
Bleeding DisordersMany people with bleeding disorders limit their physical activity. This increases their risk of developing heart problems, obesity and diabetes. Regular physical activity can actually lower the
number of bleeding episodes and the amount of bleeding (and related pain). Being active can also help
your treatment and medications work better. If you’d like better fitness and health, stronger muscles, improved coordination and a healthy body weight, get moving!
Blood Lipid DisordersThe American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology recommend physical activity as an important lifestyle therapy for treating blood lipid disorders and reducing heart disease risk.
The most commonly measured blood lipids are low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL or bad
cholesterol), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL or good cholesterol) and triglycerides. Routine physical activity can help raise HDL-C and lower LDL-C and triglycerides in many people.
CancerBeing active during and after a cancer diagnosis is an important way to reduce fatigue, increase strength and help ease depression. Regular
physical activity, including aerobic activity and strength training, can help you get through your treatments and decrease treatment side effects. In addition, stretching can help restore flexibility in joints that have lost range of motion due to surgery or radiation.
Kidney DiseasePeople with chronic kidney disease (CKD) lose stamina and strength, get out of breath easily and are at risk of heart problems. Being active is a great way counter those effects. You can lower your blood pressure, improve your muscle strength and increase your energy.
Exercise is safe for people who have CKD. If you are on dialysis, you will just have to work around your weekly dialysis sessions.
Liver DiseasePeople with chronic liver disease (CLD) lose stamina and strength, get out of breath easily and are at risk of heart problems and certain types of cancer. Being active is a great way to counter those effects.
You can lower your blood pressure, increase your strength and muscle mass as well as boost your energy.
Exercise is safe for most people who have CLD.
