Initial Assessment

The initial assessment with an exercise physiologist will involve gathering a brief medical and physical activity history along with the completion of pre-assessment measures and questions. 

The pre-assessment will help guide the prescription of your individual program and will form baseline results for comparison at the end of the 12 weekly sessions. These results, which will be de-identified, will also be used as part of the wider research project. 

Classes

The exercise group sessions will involve the completion of an individually tailored exercise program prescribed and supervised by an exercise physiologist to help meet participants specific goals and needs.
