MELT method in Naples at Fitness Inside & Out for chronic pain relief, posture and flexibility

Kate_Head_SHotChronic pain relief and injury prevention are two top concerns of Baby Boomers who want to lead and maintain an active lifestyle as they age.

Fitness Inside & Out is offering clients instruction and classes in the MELT Method, a series of therapeutic exercise techniques that are designed to relieve chronic pain and improve posture, flexibility, and sleep patterns, while reducing stress and tension.

Kate Kerwin is a certified MELT instructor and she joins Marina Kalis, also MELT certified, in bringing this new program to Fitness Inside & Out. Certified by MELT creator Sue Hitzmann, Kerwin has more than 35 years of experience and specializes in working with seniors. She helps clients learn MELT techniques using the MELT roller and small balls. Kalis is a MELT Hand & Foot and Foam Roller instructor.

Both Kerwin and Kalis are also certified Pilates instructors and they combine techniques to help clients in private sessions and small group classes. Kalis apprenticed under renown Pilates instructor Katrina For in Phoenix and is a third generation Pilates instructor.

MELT Method founder Kitzman says if you are injured, post-surgery, pregnant, overweight, sedentary, out of shape, or have limited mobility, chronic pain, knee or hip replacements, or bone disorders – you can still use the MELT Method. Many people find MELT to be an excellent way to begin an exercise and wellness program.

“I’m thrilled to have Kate and Marina bring MELT to Fitness Inside & Out because I believe many people can benefit from these techniques,” says Mike Edwards, owner of Fitness Inside & Out who has his master’s in exercise physiology.  “We hope to help new clients with chronic pain issues and assist them with getting on the road to an active and pain-free lifestyle.”

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.”

He has experience working in clinical settings and has worked with diverse client populations from total hip and knee replacement and other post-rehab clients to nationally competitive athletes.

While at George Mason, Mike served as a team manager of the Men’s Division I Basketball Team under former NBA Coach Paul Westhead.
