Fitness Inside & Out personal training studio selected to partner with national doctors network

Naples, Fla. — Fitness Inside & Out personal training studio has been selected to perform fitness assessments for a network of doctors in Naples and Southwest Florida. The nationwide health network selected Fitness Inside & Out because of the qualifications and experience of Fitness Inside & Out owner Mike Edwards, who holds a master’s degree in exercise physiology.

In depth fitness assessments at Fitness Inside & Out include a health history evaluation, a cardio health assessment, flexibility evaluation, strength testing, posture assessment, body mechanics review, girth measurements and percent body fat evaluation.

“Now’s the time of year when many people refocus on their health and fitness goals,” said Mike Edwards. “Our in-depth fitness assessment can help you identify strength and flexibility weaknesses so you don’t injure yourself when working out.”

More and more, physicians appreciate and understand the critical prevention role that exercise plays in overall health and well being. The doctors who’ve partnered with Fitness Inside & Out have chosen to provide these fitness assessments with personal trainers as a benefit for their patients. 

“Exercise programs are not one size fits all, particularly with older clients,” Edwards said. “We address individual needs and we have the education and experience to design programs tailored to your level of fitness, your age and any physical limitations you might have.”
