Integrated Personal Training (IPT)
Exercise, when combined with proper nutrition, is the most powerful and effective natural medicine for a large number of conditions and is the simplest way to significantly reduce risk for many cancers and chronic diseases. For most of the population the risks associated with exercise are limited to musculoskeletal injury resulting from improper technique or a poor warm-up or stretching routine. However, people with certain medical conditions should receive proper medical advice and exercise guidance when beginning a program. Examples of conditions that may increase the risks of exercise include:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Recent Cardiac Events
- Significant Cardiovascular Risk Factors
- Uncontrolled Diabetes
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Peripheral Artery disease
The Copeman Healthcare Centre employs kinesiologists with advanced training and certification in personal training that design programs under the supervision of family doctors and sports medicine specialists. Doctors are always on-hand within the facility in the case of a medical incident and all staff are trained in advanced cardiac life support.

The Centre accepts referrals from family doctors as well as self-referrals.
