Manage and Prevent Chronic Diseases with Physical Activity
Kinesiologists will teach you how to progressively regain strength, increase your energy and move freely. We develop a program of exercise appropriate for your medical condition(s). With our guidance we will also help you understand how to monitor your progress while still pushing yourself. We ease the transition from treatment and/or rehabilitation into community based health and fitness programs.
|I do thank you for helping me to move and build my strength to the point that I have faith and believe I can improve + maintain my mobility. I learned so much; a lot about myself. You are great teacher, focused, firm but kind. Now when I can walk up stairs many times / day (thanks to Alfred) I feel having strength to be useful.|

Why Medical Fitness Training with a Kinesiologist at Lifemoves?
Kinesiologists have the experience and education to understand how people interact within the environment and how each condition responds to exercise. Your average personal trainer and weight room instructor does not have the knowledge to work with people with chronic diseases. Many people get into cycles of either doing too little physical activity or too much, which makes their condition worse.
Our medical fitness training programs are designed for clients who wish to manage and/or prevent chronic disease through appropriate physical activity. We have a private rehabilitation and personal training studio in North Vancouver that is welcoming and very different from any other large gym. We are passionate about teaching people how their bodies moves so that they are able to continue to enjoy physically active lifestyles.
