For individuals who want to improve their personal fitness goals within the five components of physical fitness: cardiorespiratory, muscle strength, muscle endurance, flexibility and body composition. Goals include:
This program provides a safe and effective bridge from the structured rehabilitative environment to the activities of daily living. Physical reconditioning is provided as a continuum of healthcare following physical therapy, occupational therapy or cardiac rehabilitation. For example, IEPs are available for individuals with specific health needs in the areas of orthopedic and musculoskeletal injuries, i.e. lower back pain, osteoporosis or joint disorder.
Cancer Exercise Rehabilitation is available for cancer patients and survivors who have become (or may become) deconditioned from treatment or the disease itself. The primary goals consist of helping individuals build muscle mass, muscle strength and endurance, cardio-respiratory capacity, flexibility, and improve functional ability. Secondary goals include reducing the severity of therapy side effects, preventing unwanted weight changes, and improving quality of sleep, energy levels, mood, body image, and self-esteem. A long term objective is to help participants develop and maintain their own physical fitness program and to improve quality of life. Financial assistance is available for this programming, thanks to the annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign from the Y's Men's Rodeo, and also from the Bremer Foundation.
For individuals whose healthcare professional has determined than an exercise program would be beneficial in treating their disease or disability. IEPs are designed within the scope of the physician's recommendations and restrictions, as well as the patient's risk factors, individual goals and interests. For example, IEPs are available with specific health needs in the areas of:
Each year, more and more scientific evidence points to the benefits
of regular physical activity. Being physically fit - being able to
perform moderate to vigorous levels of physical activity without
undue fatigue - has a profound impact on long-term health and
reduces one's risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Trinity Health has long been committed to improving the
health of the people it serves through education and
prevention programs. Now we're able to carry that mission a
step further with a comprehensive program aimed at helping
