Most personal trainers can do only one thing: exercise training for healthy young to middle-age adults.
At Small Change, I can do far more.
Certified Medical Exercise Specialist:
If you have a chronic health problem or ongoing musculo-skeletal issue, you need someone who understands and can work with you and your health team in a knowledgeable way. This certification is the highest level ACE offers and what it means for you is that if you have heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, arthritis or osteoporosis, I can help you exercise in a safe and effective way and if you have any of these problems and are an older adult, I have a Senior Fitness certification as well to help fine tune the plan to your needs. If you have problems with your back or are recovering from an injury, this certification along with my Orthopedic Exercise Specialist training means I know about and can work with you and your physical therapist or work with you once you’ve been released from pt and want to do more. If you are overweight or have obesity, my certification as a Health Coach adds yet another layer to my training as a medical exercise specialist, allowing me to help educate you on food and nutrition and refer you to a nutritionist or dietitian if that’s needed.
