Medical Exercise Training is a way for clients with sub-acute medical conditions to exercise safely and effectively. Our Medical Exercise Specialists (MES) at Pongo Power develop conditioning programs for clients with sub-acute musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological and metabolic conditions. These clients will have already completed medical treatment and/or physical therapy. Improvement or restoration of function via education and exercise is the goal.

A Pongo Power Medical Exercise Specialist will meet with you online, for a free consultation to review your health history.  If it is appropriate, we will then provide movement screenings to assess your functional range of motion. Through implementation of self-administered stretches and gentle exercise, clients who have medical conditions can learn strategies to help improve well-being. We will help you to manage your conditions at home.

  • I love the atmosphere at Pongo Power. There's lots of good energy and friendly support in a small setting that's never intimidating. My personal experience at Pongo Power has been very effective, because Gardy understands how all the muscles work together, and creates much more effective workouts.

  • Karin's guidance has been invaluable! The strengthening work we did enabled me to sail through hip replacement surgery, and I could not have returned to full mobility without her wisdom, patience, encouragement, and knowledge of human anatomy.
