Our classes are structured around improving flexibility, strength, weight loss, toning, and balance.

The water helps to decrease swelling and increase circulation, improves range of motion, and provides a resistance necessary to strengthen muscles. Offered at all locations
Core Conditioning Classes - A class to help increase your core strength, which allows you to do more things with less effort and in a safer manner. Our definition of "core" includes the muscles from your bottom ribs and sternum all the way down to your hip bones, on the front, back and sides of your body. If these muscles are stronger you will be able to deliver more power from your legs to your arms, (putting something up into a cupboard, or pushing a grocery cart, or carrying laundry up or down the stairs). A stronger core also assists with improving your balance. Come join the fun! Call for class times.
In-Home Personal Training - A home based exercise program that is developed by a professional from a NMSMC to implement a personalized Fitness and Strength Training Program.

While winning isn’t everything, let’s face it, it is fun when your team is on the winning side. Less than three decades ago, most athletes used the off-season as a time for taking a break from their sport with relaxing activities.
Today's athletes are finding the importance of strength and conditioning during the off-seasons, and professional athletes are by no means the only people aware of its benefits. At Sports Medicine Center our goal is not to make you the world's greatest athlete. Our goal is to help you be the best athlete you can be. Athletes of every level will benefit from our unique approach to sports enhancement.
We offer sports specific programs that will enhance all levels of athletes. Whether you are cyclist, a runner, softball player, kayaker, football player, golfer, or soccer player, we have a program to improve your game and body. Our sports enhancement programs are designed to improve performance and decrease your potential for injury by concentrating on the areas most susceptible to injury in your sport and/or your body structure.
