About Us

behind the scenes at Gateway

We Are Fitness!

Gateway specializes in medical exercise and personalized fitness services for clients recently discharged from physical therapy, those challenged by chronic or life-long medical conditions and individuals of all abilities.

Unlike most facilities, our certified and licensed staff members have extensive experience in medical exercise, post-rehabilitation fitness, personalized fitness enhancement and weight management solutions, massage therapy and nutrition counseling to ensure our client’s have the necessary resources to achieve their health and wellness goals.

Our health and fitness professionals work in conjunction with medical providers to ensure a safe and effective exercise program is designed with our client’s medical condition and fitness goals in mind.

We manage medical conditions through exercise. We do not diagnose or offer treatment for any medical condition or disorder. Employing a blend of medical assessment, physical fitness, lifestyle management, and wellness coaching, the team of professionals at Gateway serves as a partner to clients and their medical providers. We look forward to helping our clients realize optimal health while minimizing recurrence of injury or illness.
