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.”

About Mike Edwards: Mike Edwards holds a master’s degree in exercise physiology and a bachelor’s degree in sports psychology from George Mason University. 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. Mike has trained some of Naples’ top Junior National Tennis players, including more than 14 who have received NCAA Division I scholarships. While at George Mason, Mike served as a team manager of the Men’s Division I Basketball Team under former NBA Coach Paul Westhead.

Mayo Clinic-Strength vs Aging Study

Studies have found that only about 30 percent of the difference in strength between young adults and older adults is due to aging.  A decline in physical activity is responsible for around 70 percent of the strength people lose.  The good news is that if it has already occured, the loss can be regained.  Older adults often experience remarkable improvement in strength within weeks or months of starting a strength training program, according to the Mayo Clinic.

According to th study: Muscles are responsible for every movement you make, and stronger muscles make it easier to live a full and productive life.  Strong muscles influence your health in other ways.  For example strength training can improve bone health, promote weight control, reduce risk of injury, alleviate back or arthritis pain, promote diabetes control, and improve cognition.

That is where the benefit of a trainer comes in.  People tend to start an exercise program and then tend to not modify it or reconize the areas that need to be emphasized.  A personal trainer at Fitness Inside & Out will evaluate your strength and endurance and also your flexibility and balance.  A personal trainer is able to adapt your exercise routine to your various conditions to improve your overall health.

Golf Fitness

Back to golf 1 Our BACKtoGOLF golf fitness program is a nationally recognized golf enhancement program. Its goal is to reduce injuries to the back due to faulty swing mechanics, poor conditioning, and loss of flexibility and strength.

The program features one-on-one contact with an exercise physiologist who is educated in golf swing mechanics and who is an expert in identifying musculo-skeletal problems that can lead to common faults in the golf swing.

Many of the swing faults are due to lack of strength, mobility or flexibility.

A program will be designed to improve the stabilizing muscles of the golf swing to give you more flexibility and strength for a smooth, fluid golf swing.

We work with local golf pros as well to assist you in your swing mechanics.

Post Rehab Personal Training

DSC_1476 This type of training is designed to assist the individual return to optimal function after the acute phase of the condition, usually following surgery or physical therapy for injury. Initially the client completes a musculo-skeletal screening and a functional fitness assessment, from which a program is developed. The program consists of strengthening and stabilization of the spine, the joint and the associated muscles in question, restoring normal movement and strength. The training will take place in a supervised fitness setting with a post-rehab specialist. The fitness training is not intended to take the place of medical treatment, but to complement it.

Examples of such medical conditions we work with would be:

  • October 2011 business 008Lower Back Problems
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder and Neck Problems
  • Rotator Cuff Problems
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Arthritis
  • Hypertension
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Knee and Hip Problems
  • Knee and Hip Replacements
  • Balance and Coordination Problems
  • Diminished Capacity to Perform Daily Activities
  • …And Others.

The other benefit of post-rehab conditioning is preventative in nature. This training is designed to strengthen, stretch and stabilize muscles surrounding suspect joints, such as knee, shoulder or low back with the goal of preventing future problems and alleviating everyday aches and pains.
