What does the science say?
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH):
By improving an individual’s functional capacity through increased physical activity before an anticipated orthopaedic procedure, it seems reasonable to assume that the individual will maintain a higher level of functional ability and rebound more rapidly in the rehabilitation process. Prehabilitation is the process of enhancing functional capacity of the individual to enable him or her to withstand the stressor of inactivity associated with an orthopaedic procedure. A generic prehabilitation program incorporates the components of warm-up, a cardiovascular component, resistance training, flexibility training, and practicing functional tasks.
Do you need an extra level of structure, support and accountability to improve your health, reduce stress or lose weight? Working in partnership with a health coach can provide that extra level of support. A coach will work with you to create a specific set of realistic goals and then work with you on a weekly basis to help you achieve those goals. Week by week, your small changes will start to really add up and before you know it, you will be at your optimal level of health!

The human body very much follows the old adage;Use it or lose it. Research has shown that people who enter a surgical procedure with a higher level fitness can have reduced postoperative complications and have better outcomes (The Impact of Fitness on Surgical Outcomes: The Case for Prehabilitation). After surgery most people will enter physical therapy for rehabilitation to strengthen the body to allow it to function optimally.
The benefits aren’t limited to just pre/post surgical procedures. If you’ve had an injury, the same principles can help you recover faster and get back to the things you like to do. Anytime you’re laid up with an injury you risk losing strength, coordination and balance. More strength means less load on the joints. Better balance lowers the risk for a fall.
WE WORK IN CONCERT WITH YOUR DOCTOR AND PHYSICAL THERAPIST
Prehabilitation is defined as preparing the body for surgery and post-rehabilitation after surgery. Working the body prior to surgery to strengthen not only the muscles around the surgical area (pain free of course), but to also get the body to function and move better. We’ve had clients undergo knee and hip replacement surgeries and in every case they had a faster recovery than expected.
After a surgery or an injury the body loses strength, flexibility and function. To put it simply, our body doesn’t work as well. Once physical therapy ends, it’s critical to keep strengthening your body so those hard won gains aren’t lost.
The key to continue improving functional capacity is to train the body to function as a unit as opposed to a set of parts, while also looking at life activities and sports to ensure the body is prepared for the stresses placed on it.
While injuries and surgery are a setback, in most cases with the right rehabilitation you can get back to where you were and continue to do the things you love.
John is absolutely amazing. He’s been through 8 surgeries for a shattered ankle from a climbing accident. He just keeps moving forward.
John was initially told he would lack significant range of motion in the ankle. Once we found out there was no mechanical limitation preventing additional range of motion, we developed a plan to see if we could increase it. I’m happy to say that our plan worked and we were able to get range of motion originally thought not possible.

Colin unfortunately experienced one of the top skiing injuries. He tore his ACL, not while flying down the hill, but while catching an edge. Colin is not one to do well at stopping so we worked in concert with his physical therapist to develop a plan to get him going again once he got clearance from his doctor.
Watching Colin now you’d have no idea he had the injury at all.

Tired of diets? Sick of losing weight only to gain it back?
Six Step Weight Loss Plan
We do a full fitness assessment and nutritional analysis to get information about where you are starting. The assessment includes body composition, measurements and a look at health risk factors. We also look at current cardiovascular health, muscle strength and endurance, flexibility and balance.
Create personalized plan/schedule
Based on what we learn during the assessment, what your specific goals are and what your schedule looks like, we will put together a program that includes nutritional guidance and a workout plan to get you moving, burning calories and building lean muscle.
Cardiovascular work is one of the top ways to burn calories. We will outline a structured approach that will help you reach your weight loss goals.
Strength training will amp up your calorie burn while you are working out, and will also increase your calorie burn for several hours after! We work your whole body, including your core muscles for an all-over effective workout.
It only takes five minutes a day, but we find a one-to-one correlation between clients who consistently journal their food and those who lose weight and keep it off. The main value of the food journal is for you to become mindful of what you are putting in your body.
We have weekly weigh-ins to help you stay accountable and on track. In addition, we can go back and re-measure keys areas to check your progress.
