MS Fitness Toronto
Busy Bee Fitness Experts are a team of mobile personal trainers in Toronto, some of which specialize in fitness training for multiple sclerosis (MS). We know that it can be expensive to receive the support you need. That’s why we offer a sliding scale for payment depending on your financial needs. We also do our best to offer as much support as possible to our clients both during and outside of your sessions. We start with an initial assessment with an MS fitness Toronto personal trainer to evaluate your needs and customize a plan based around your specific goals.
It’s been proven that exercise can help manage symptoms for those that battle with multiple sclerosis and many other immune disorders. It’s important, as a first step, that a personal trainer or physical therapist evaluate your fitness level and determine a suitable long-term exercise program for you. A good customized balance of cardio, strength training, and stretching is required. Stand-alone flexibility training is also an option we provide. Of course, as is the case for everyone, many people with MS have a wide range of fitness levels and mobility. Even those with very limited mobility can see improvements through stretching and mindfulness. We provide our clients with a balance of physical and mental exercises for optimal results.
Managing Progression and Symptoms for MS
According to some experts on managing multiple sclerosis, exercise may even be the best way to prevent the progression or help alleviate many symptoms. “If you have MS, exercise is just as, if not more important as any disease modifying drug” according to Karen Blitz-Shabbir, the director of the Multiple Sclerosis Centre at the North Shore Cushing Institute in New York. A comprehensive study published by researchers at the University of Utah in 1996, was the first to demonstrate the benefits of exercise for people with MS. Those patients who participated in an aerobic exercise program benefited from the following:
- Better cardiovascular fitness.
- Improved strength, mobility, and flexibility.
- Improved bladder and bowel function.
- Less fatigue and depression.
- Lessening of symptoms associated with chronic pelvic pain.
- A more positive attitude which also increases confidence.
- Increased confidence and participation in social activities.
Our Mission For You
We believe that it’s crucial for people with MS to receive support outside of their sessions to assist in the management of their progress. That’s why, the Busy Bee Fitness Experts provide detailed programs outside of the sessions included in our personal training packages. It can somtimes be difficult and scary getting into fitness – we will work with you to ease into your program at your own pace. We want our clients to feel as comfortable and safe as possible. If you’re just interested in just Nutrition for MS then please ask to be put in touch with our registered Nutritionist, Jesse White.
