Personal Exercise Plan Co-Creation

At Balance Physical Therapy, we co-create your personal exercise plan based on your physical needs, whether you’re finishing therapy or you’re looking to make a change in your fitness.


A personal exercise plan is an important part of your overall efforts to make a healthy change to your life. It is important that you participate in the development of your plan so that you understand how to perform the exercise, and more importantly, why this exercise is important for you. There are a few reasons that this is an important aspect of your exercise goals.


Enjoy Your Personal Exercise Plan

Working on your own personal exercise plan is a great way to make sure that the exercises that you are doing are ones that you actually enjoy. Following along with a routine that has been decided for you is less likely to keep you coming back for more the following day than one that you have planned out on your own. Take some time to determine what kind of exercise you enjoy doing and create your own exercise routine. It is one way that you can be sure that some fun is included in your plan.


When you co-create your plan with the therapists and trainers at Balance Physical Therapy, you’ll receive guidance on proper technique and a selection of exercises that are functionally correct for your body, movement, and goals.


No one knows what you are capable of doing better than you. Your own personal exercise plan will accommodate any activities that you are physically incapable of doing. Our personal trainers can take these things into consideration when working on your exercise plan, but no one can do it better than you, so your participation and communication are critical to the process.


You can also vary your personal exercise plan and include a number of exercises that you would like to try. For instance, try a brisk walk one day, go swimming the next, and take a yoga class on a different day. It is completely up to you the kind of exercise that you include in your plan as long as you keep on moving.


Schedule Time To Exercise

You also know your schedule much better than any personal trainer can and you will know just how to accommodate the emergencies and changes that will inevitably come up. Make a contingency plan when you are scheduling your exercise for the week. It is always a good idea to plan for those days when things get in your way so that your whole week doesn’t get shot.


If scheduling time to exercise on your own is keeping you from staying active, be sure to join one of Balance Physical Therapy’s fitness classes.


Creating your own personal exercise plan is also a lot of fun. You can choose to try new things and experiment a bit with your exercise routine. You can take things off that you don’t enjoy and make sure that your exercise goes exactly the way that you want. Take some time to determine what you might like to try and include it in your exercise plan. What’s the worst that could happen?


It is very empowering to work on your own personal exercise plan. The sky’s the limit, and you can keep track of your improvements and accomplishments as you go along. Make it a little bit harder in a shorter period of time and you will see the improvements that your body is making with all of your hard work and effort.


You can look at your exercise plan as your own personal journey through the world of exercise and fitness.

Competently competent! I have been to several PTs for my issue. None took the time to really evaluate and come up with ideas that actually made a difference. We are still working the issue, but I have felt so cared for. John takes an interest to make sure that the patient is getting the right care they need. Happy!! 5/5 stars
