The body is designed to function optimally and without pain. - William Hurst, M.D., Cardiologist.
An Exercise Physiologist, Personal Trainer and Licensed Massage/Bodywork Therapist (MAS.1935), Jan knows how to help you progress to your next desired level of health and function, even if it's just a little bit beyond where you currently are.
Jan Shaw has worked in partnership with physical therapists, physicians, nurses, and case managers since 1986.
She is most effective with the "baby boomer" and "Gen-X" generations. (born 1944-1981)
Her Personal Training is designed for general exercise or specific functional goals, such as improved strength and endurance, post-rehab conditioning, or medical diagnosis management.
"I consider myself a step beyond Physical Therapy, and often interwoven with it, and a step before the typical gym trainer. I fill that niche, and it's a wide niche."
"I would say that the majority of people fall into this niche in the health continuum between medical disability and exercise enthusiast. The problem with this segment of people is that they generally get along pretty well, with an occasional dip into the need for physical therapy or medications."
"Without regular physical activity challenging enough to keep up the heart rate and breathing, people in this niche will find themselves gradually cascading toward more and more medical necessity. That is not where we want to go."
