Covid-19 crisis has caused many challenges to our fitness industry and this is a way to interact and review materials. You will need some space to move but you just need some type of device to view our session (smart device or computer).
The goal is to provide overall mobility for recovery and function for activities of daily living. Therefore the regions of focus will cover suggested exercises for : the Cervical Thoracic and Lumbar areas of the spine, and the shoulder, hip , knee and ankle joint areas. Other exercises include suggestions for clients requiring CVA or post stroke rehab which can also be used for most movement disorders. These exercises will provide the Instructor with a generic base of safe, adaptable movement that can be combined to create programs suitable to each client’s personal needs. Some people with a chronic condition may never advance beyond a certain stage for recovery however this does not mean they have not improved their quality of life. We train to work on the ability not disability.
The goal of the program is to help bring clients back to full functional well-being.
