What happens during a workout?

With On Demand Personal Training, your trainer guides you through every step of your full-body workout.  This includes writing your workout, setting your machines, coaching you on every exercise, recording your workout, and confirming your next workout.


How is the workout structured?  

The MEDFITNESS Workout uses the American College of Sports Medicines guidelines for strength training.   Members complete their workout under the direct supervision of a professionally trained Personal Trainer. Each workout includes 8 exercises that target the abdomen, low back, upper and lower legs, chest, back, shoulders, and arms. 


Members rotate between the A Workout (abdominal crunch, leg curl, leg press, chest press, compound row, lateral raise, triceps extension, and biceps curl) and the B Workout (abdominal crunch, leg extension, seated dip, pull down, overhead press, low back extension, hip abduction, and hip adduction).  All exercises are performed in a slow, controlled manner to minimize the risk of injury. 


Additional training techniques (i.e,. Multipliers) are added to workouts to maximize benefits and add variety. 


Can I try the MEDFITNESS Workout? 

You can always try the MEDFITNESS Workout.  Our Free Trial Workout puts you in the driver's seat by allowing you to take us for a test drive.  Some personal training studios charge up to $50 for an introductory workout.  We believe in providing value by allowing you to try us before you buy us!  To schedule a Free Trial Workout call (630) 762-1784 or CONTACT US.


Do I need an appointment to work with a trainer? 

With On Demand Personal Training, you do not need an appointment to work with a Personal Trainer.  The moment you walk in the door your Personal Trainer is ready to guide you through your 25-minute, full-body, workout.  If you would like Early Morning Personal Training, you will need an appointment.     


Is the program healthy for older adults?

The MEDFITNESS Program meets the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans set by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for strength training and cardiovascular exercise.  Numerous health agencies including the National Institutes of Health recommend strength training for all adults including senior citizens.  


Is the workout safe?

Our first priority is that every workout is safe.  The MEDFITNESS stuio is equipped with MEDX Exercise Machines.  These machines incorporate MEDX’s patented, compound weight stack which enables increases of resistance in 2-pound increments.  This feature reduces user strain and makes it possible for individuals to select the exact level of resistance required, regardless of their strength, ensuring steady and consistent progress.   


Each MEDX machine is adjusted allowing members to exercise target muscle groups through a pain-free range of motion.  Machine settings can be further customized to manage musculoskeletal injuries and/or limitations (e.g., reduced range-of-motion).  Using the MEDX Exercise Machines allows us to achieve excellent results while maximizing workout safety.  


What happens if I have medical issues?

We customize every workout to work around medical issues or physical limitations.  We also work closely with local physicians, physical therapists and chiropractors to provide post-rehab workouts based on the specific recommendations of your healthcare provider.     


Is the workout functional? 

The MEDFITNESS Workout will improve your strength, flexibility, and endurance.  In other words, you will have an improved ability to do the things you like doing, with less fatigue, and greater safety. 


Does the workout use free-weights or machines? 

We prefer the safety and efficiency profile of strength training machines.  Our studio is built around the patented technology of MEDX exercise equipment.  These machines allow you to safely complete a full-body workout in less than 25 minutes.  


Do I need a doctors referral to workout at MEDFITNESS? 

While some physicians refer patients to MEDFITNESS, a referral is not required.

We do not offer discounts.  Instead, we focus on providing value with On Demand Personal Training, which is priced 60% below conventional personal training.
