What We Do

 
 

Fitness Support in the Community


More and more, doctors and therapists are prescribing physical activity for the treatment of mental illness, but unfortunately - access to personal trainers and coaches is not a viable option for many. Fitness for Mental Health has developed evidence based programming that is specific and consistent, yet customized to suit both individuals and the communities in which we operate.  

 THE FITNESS FOR MENTAL HEALTH TEAM is HERE TO HELP. 

If your community or organization could use the support of our team, we would love the opportunity to connect with you. We operate our programs through corporate sponsorship, grants and funding from a variety of sources. The core of our business is spreading the benefits of physical activity, and we are passionately working to ensure that everyone who needs our services, has access. 

 

One-on-One Programs


In addition to serving groups, we also support individual clients in a more private and focused setting. Our Fitness Support Specialists develop a structure that is flexible – unique to personal challenges - and the commitment to this structure is what makes our clients successful. The FMH team are certified fitness professionals who have been trained to understand the various barriers that many face, as most of us have faced them ourselves. 

Progress is documented, and is measured using a variety of metrics - focusing on symptom reduction. Celebrating incremental gains, our clients notice improvements in mood symptoms, ability to focus, and overall mental well being. Consistency and structure are ways in which we ensure that clients stick to their programs as part of an overall mental health maintenance plan. 

Our clients come to us from all walks of life. Counselors, doctors and psychotherapists will send referals, and often individuals  will find us on their own.

We are here with you


Our Fitness Support Specialists (FSS) design programs to suit our clients’ lifestyle. We understand that the more barriers there are, the less likely our clients are to achieve success. The path to recovery is one that clients help narrate, and we are committed to helping everyone we work with, achieve their goals. 

Programs consist of 3 sessions per week, and range from 6 – 12 weeks in length, depending on the individual circumstance. Time of day is flexible and your FSS will work with you to set your schedule. 

Your FSS is on board with you throughout the length of your program, and beyond – to support your commitment to living a fully functional life.
