What is a Medical Exercise Specialist? The MES is a fitness professional who not only works with the typical client looking to improve their health and fitness level, but who also has gained the knowledge and skills to work with clients who present a wide range of medical conditions. The MES is trained to develop safe and effective conditioning programs for clients with musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, or metabolic disorders. The MES is not trained to offer any professional rehab services provided by licensed physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and/or physicians. We do not diagnose or treat any condition. We restore muscular balance and create functional outcomes through exercise.
Clients who have been in chronic pain and who are not getting any relief through traditional means may gain benefit from our services. By managing their medical conditions through exercise, we can alleviate many of their aches and pains, making them stronger and more flexible in the process. You can be a client suffering from issues ranging from acute injuries of the "weekend warrior" to chronic conditions exacerbated by poor exercise technique that keep them from performing at the top of their physical peak.
We’ll teach you how to modify your routines to stay safe, strong, and injury-free throughout your life.
Medical Exercise Training programs are designed for long term medical controlled conditions such as but not limited to:
