What if there was one prescription that could prevent and treat chronic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease and obesity? Would you prescribe it to your patients? Absolutely. Exercise has been shown to improve medical outcomes in chronic diseases. However, few individuals know how to begin a safe, effective exercise program. Further more, individuals that have been shown how to exercise properly or received rehabilitative exercise prescriptions fail to comply on their own.* Why? Lack of patient focus, motivation and ongoing structured support. Oh Fitness personal training can help.
Oh Fitness follows the evidenced based cardiovascular and strength training approach supported by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), American Heart Association (AHA) and Exercise is Medicine (EIM) program. Extended support programs are tried and true (i.e. Weight Watchers, Alcoholics Anonymous). Personal training helps keep patients focused by motivating them and providing a structured exercise support program specifically designed around contraindications you have listed.
As a physician, you are the most respected and highest trained health care professional in your patient’s life. Couple this with personal training and your patient now has the motivation, accountability and daily structured support needed to continue improving their quality of life after leaving your office or medical facility.
