Medically supervised fitness

Improved fitness and muscle strength are essential to recovering from illnesses and injuries, yet traditional exercise facilities aren't equipped to address the unique health needs of each individual. That is why Reston Therapy & Fitness Center offers medically supervised fitness.

Through this personalized program, we can help you transition from physical therapy to a home exercise program or your normal gym routine.

The medically supervised fitness program can help patients with numerous conditions, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Low back pain
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Osteoporosis

Features of our medically supervised fitness program

Traditional fitness facilities often provide minimal assistance when it comes to helping you create an exercise plan, learn to use equipment and track your progress. This type of guidance and expertise is exactly what our medically supervised fitness program offers, featuring:

  • A fitness program that is specific to your medical conditions and needs
  • A medical evaluation, fitness assessment and constant re-evaluations for progress
  • One-on-one training for individuals who cannot exercise on their own or for those who would like direct supervision
  • Supervision by an exercise physiologist who tracks specific vitals and exercise progression

Outpatient rehab admissions

Outpatient therapy requires a physician referral and takes place at Reston Therapy & Fitness Center. If you will be participating in exercise, the referral should state you have medical clearance for exercise.
