What is Medical Exercise Training?

     Medical Exercise Training (MET) is the development of safe and effective protocol based exercise programming for clients with medical conditions. The majority of clients referred to or utilizing MET services are there due to “residual functional deficits”. Insurance reimbursement for many medical specialties has significantly diminished over the last 20 years. This means patients are being discharged earlier from these specialty services without reaching optimum functional levels.

     At least 80% of these discharged patients have lingering residual functional deficits that will impact their performance at work, home and in sports. Our job as Medical Exercise Specialists is to identify and manage the residual functional deficits lingering after these medical specialty services have been discontinued.

What steps are involved in our Medical Exercise Program?

Our Medical Exercise Program is composed of 4 Steps:

Step 1: Evaluation
Consists of Pre-Activity Screening, Movement Analysis, Biophysical and Fitness Baseline Measurements.

Step 2: Education
Next we educate you on your evaluation results, what they mean to  your condition and how we can help.

Step 3: Motivation
We motivate by creating Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely goals.

Step 4: Integration
Finally, we develop and implement a systematic, progressive and integrated  Medical Exercise Program tailored specifically to your needs and goals.

Why is Medical Exercise Training necessary?            

     While it may be excepted to seek out an individual who will jump up and down and scream to help you “get in shape” individuals just being discharged from physical therapy/chiropractic care or suffering from chronic medical conditions (diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, obesity, etc.) need an expert that will understand what exercises will help them workout without increasing pain or exacerbating their symptoms. They need professionals willing to contact their physician and understand their medical conditions, help them improve their health, feel better about themselves, and achieve their goals, safely and effectively. They need someone who cares and will go the extra mile to help them not just lose weight, but listen to them, so they can achieve a healthy lifestyle despite all they are going through.

 How is Power-Up Different?

Power-Up is owned and operated by an Exercise Physiologist, Registered Nurse, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with over 20 years’ experience in the health, fitness, and performance fields. We provide a systematic and progressive medical exercise program consisting of Evaluating, Educating, Motivating, and Integrating you back into your optimal level of health, fitness, and performance. We understand that every individual is different and therefore our programs are tailored to you specifically, not a “one-size-fits-all” pre-written protocol.
