The Valley Hospital Health and Fitness Center

 

The Valley Hospital Health and Fitness Center is a unique exercise facility designed specifically for individuals who do not want to join a traditional health club or for whom a health club may not be appropriate. Perhaps you have just competed physical, occupational or cardiac rehabilitation. Or you have a special health condition, such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes or arthritis and want a personal plan of exercise that addresses your health concerns. Maybe you have never exercised before and would like guidance in starting an exercise program. Valley's Health and Fitness Center can help. We offer professionally supervised fitness programs designed by highly skilled exercise professionals. Our friendly, encouraging staff will design a personal program of exercise just for you, show you how to use the equipment and teach you how to incorporate a regular exercise routine into your lifestyle. Valley’s Health and Fitness Center provides the equipment, facilities and qualified caring staff to enable you to:

* continue the progress you made during medical treatment or rehabilitation
* improve your overall physical condition in a safe and supervised environment
* monitor your heart rate and blood pressure during exercise
* develop a lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise

And because we are offered by The Valley Hospital, we offer access to the full range of health and wellness programs offered by Valley, including nutritional counseling, stress management, weight-loss and smoking cessation programs.

AfterCare Fitness

The cornerstone of our Health and Fitness Center is AfterCare Fitness, a comprehensive fitness program designed to pick up where physical, occupational or cardiac rehabilitation leaves off. If you have just completed rehab but want the continued security, guidance and encouragement afforded by a supervised exercise program, AfterCare Fitness may be for you. Our professional staff will help you continue on the road to recovery and improved fitness and build on the progress you made during rehabilitation.

Membership Options

Health and Fitness Center memberships are available for those who are seeking a program of regular exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle. Specialized programs are designed for seniors, women's health issues, weight management and disease prevention. When you join the center, you will receive a personal wellness profile and health risk report, a physical fitness evaluation and instruction in a personally tailored conditioning program. Your sessions will include instruction in resistance training, cardiovascular workouts and exercises designed to promote flexibility, good posture and balance.

Our Facility

The Valley Hospital Health and Fitness Center offers top-of-the-line aerobic and strength-training equipment designed for a wide range of populations. Our equipment has specialized built-in features for safety, heart rate monitoring, proper biomechanics and a wide range of intensity settings.

About Our Staff

Our center is staffed by certified clinical exercise specialists and strength and conditioning specialists who hold university degrees in health and exercise sciences. All of our professional staff are trained in basic life support and automated external cardiac defibrillation.

Getting Started

All participants are required to obtain clearance from their physician before beginning any exercise program at the Health and Fitness Center. In addition, restrictions or recommendations from your physician or therapist will be useful in designing your exercise program. A health status and exercise readiness assessment is conducted during your initial consultation, and a personalized exercise program is then developed to help you meet your fitness goals. Our orientation session gives you a guided informational tour of the facility so that you are familiar and comfortable with the equipment and your exercise routine.
