Undertaking a new physical fitness program can feel daunting — and the stress of not knowing where or how to start can prevent you from beginning in the first place.

At your neighborhood gym, you may just become another faceless member, left to your own devices to figure out the equipment and put together a workout routine. Alternatively, you could pay exorbitant fees for personal training sessions that leave you more puzzled than when you begin. You can avoid that by working with an expert in medical exercise modalities and routines at a physical therapy center instead of a run-of-the-mill gym.

From formal therapy to physical fitness

At Ferrell-Whited’s Berea Clinic, we offer comprehensive rehabilitation services after you’ve suffered an injury or undergone surgery as well as personal fitness training so we can work with you to find the right routine for you to attain your goals. This can be especially helpful to clients who finish their formal occupational or physical therapy regimens but are still looking to continue improving physically or to gain strength and muscle tone.

Work with experienced professionals for safety

The expertise of our on-site professionals demonstrates the true advantage of working on your fitness goals at a physical therapy center instead of a gym. Our staff knows exactly what to look for as you work out — your form, what exercises you may be struggling to perform and when you may be experiencing pain during your routine. This one-on-one training will allow you to improve faster physically and avoid accidents or injuries compared to working with less qualified gym staff who may not be able to detect.

Trainings to meet a range of needs

At the Berea Clinic, we offer a variety of personal fitness training options, including exercise specifically designed for those who are pregnant, active seniors, and newer parents with children in tow. Imagine instead of parking your little ones in an impersonal gym-provided daycare while you work out, you have them right with you as you work through your strength and cardio training.
Additionally, our staff will work with you one-on-one to draw up a personal plan that does meet your requirements.

For instance, if you’ve been battling a long-term injury or illness, it’s likely your entire body has grown weaker over that time. We can design an appropriate range of workouts to help you regain that strength and muscle mass, leaving you even more physically fit than you were to begin with. And if you’re already in decent shape but looking to get ready for an event or race — or just seeking overall improvement — we’re here and ready to help with that as well.
