How can we help you?

If you have been advised by your doctor to start exercising and eating healthier because you demonstrate health risks or because you have been diagnosed with a medical condition, we have health coaches that can help you get started.  Health coaches and medical program staff can support and encourage you throughout your journey.  Physical therapists are also part of your wellness team and create individualized programs specifically customized for you and your goals. They make sure that you are safe exercising and that you have the support you need. 


See below which program may be of interest to you.  We encourage you to contact the medical program coordinator of the program you are most interested in and they can answer any questions you may have and direct you in next steps.


To begin your medically-guided wellness journey, we need a referral from your physician. It is so important to keep your physician involved in your health care.  Click on this link to download and print a Medical Referral form that you can take to your physician. We can help you with this process.  Just ask a medical program coordinator!
