A good trainer for people with medical issues?

Albany Strength gym.jpgAmelia emails:

My friend is looking for a personal trainer in the capital region that deals with individuals with training people with medical issues like insulin resistance or other medical conditions. Anyone know of a personal trainer in the area who is holistic and understanding? Thanks.

Got suggestion for Amelia and her friend? Please share.

She needs a medically oriented gym, unfortunately there are none around here. Try a PT practice that has gym equipment.

I agree. A Physical Therapist will be able to assess your needs and set you up on a program that you could do at home or in a gym setting. You would need to get a script from your physician. I would recommend St. Peter's PT and Fitness in Slingerlands.

+3, and I would recommend Albany Med Outpatient Physical Therapy (especially Jason Gagnon), located 618 Central Ave, they have helped me greatly.

[A]nother factor that allows some politicians to slide into corrupt practices is the overriding notion that if they hadn't chosen to become "public servants" that they'd be making mega bucks on the corporate world. Which maybe they would. But it seems to give them license (in their own minds) to exploit any ethical grey area to make up for that loss of income.
