In-Home Personal Training


Maturity and aging bring new opportunities and enrichment to life. Preparing the body to fully enjoy this phase begins by optimizing fitness, health, function, reducing the risk for developing chronic medical conditions, or better managing and treating existing chronic medical conditions.

 

Whether you desire to walk your dog everyday, travel and complete your bucket list, start a second career, spend active time with grandkids, gardening, bicycling around Oregon, volunteering or just want to remain as healthy as possible, we are experts in our field and develop exercise training programs to help you reach your goal.

 

Exercise programs are individually tailored and designed according to:

  • your wellness goal and plans to spend your midlife and retirement years

  • current and past health and medical history

  • recommendations from your health care provider

  • initial baseline assessment and vital signs collected

 

Our fitness professionals represent a critical link between clinic and community, often serving as valued members of the patient's healthcare team, physicians, physical therapists, and other allied health professionals.

 

We train our clients in the comfort and privacy of their home, and we can also meet up with clients at urban green spaces, parks in and around the city. 

In-Home Physical Therapy

 

At one or more points in your life, you may need a physical therapist to restore function, regain balance or gait, to rehabilitate after an injury or after a newly diagnosed medical condition.

 

Our Private Physical Therapy services started with the belief that our clients deserve more.
 

In-home physical therapy services provide treatment for a wide range of conditions such as:  Parkinson's, stroke, traumatic brain injury, compression fracture, or maybe you are in need of an ergonomic evaluation and adjustment to prevent development of chronic and permanent medical issues due work habits.   


Our physical therapists provide more engagement with hands-on progressive treatments that are customized to match each client's specific needs.

 

Clients receive the full attention of the physical therapist for one hour. Longer treatment sessions are possible when desired. In-home private physical therapy is convenient and time efficient.

Balance, Mobility and
Falls Prevention Programs

 

In-Home personalized exercise training is available to restore and reestablish balance, mobility, strength, stability and functional fitness.

 

Immediate intervention is recommended for individuals with moderate to high fall risk, and individuals who have experienced a fall with or without injuries.

 

The Good News is that MOST falls are preventable with the appropriate intervention.

 

Falls are:

  • not an inevitable part of aging

  • not a normal part of aging

  • the aging process by itself does not cause someone to fall. 

 

Balance and mobility specific exercise programs are carefully constructed and tailored to the balance impairment for maximum benefit.

Home Fitness Care

 

Keep the skills you have gained through physical therapy and further improve and maintain your functional ability and wellness with Home Fitness Care.

 

Home Fitness Care helps older adults stay independent in their own home. Training sessions help older adults retain the necessary skills to maintain their ability to perform activities of daily living with more ease and less fatigue.

 

Home Fitness Care is a continuum of personalized exercise training delivered by a certified personal trainer with geriatric exercise experience two, three to five times per week at an ongoing basis.

Without regular and consistent exercise, the skills achieved through physical therapy will be lost quickly and often leaves the individual with less function than prior to receiving physical therapy. 

 

Health Coaching

 

Whether you need to improve your lifestyle habits because your doctor advised you to; have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or high blood pressure; are fed up with feeling sick and tired, stressed, running on empty, feeling out of shape and knees are hurting all the time?

 

A Health Coach may be your best option to achieve desired the results and helping you turn your life around. A Health Coach facilitates healthy lifestyle changes through nutritional education, WFPB food benefits to your health, behavior-change coaching, and exercise training.
