We encourage all of our clients to consider numerous forms of exercise and fitness support, both individually and as part of our exercise groups and services. For those that participate, we see marked improvements in self-esteem, vitality, body awareness, alertness and an overall sense of wellbeing.
Types of Fitness Support for Young Adults At The Dorm:
Well-Rounded Fitness Opportunities
We offer a broad range of fitness opportunities and recommend balanced regimens including cardiovascular endurance (e.g. swimming, biking or running), muscular strength (e.g. lifting weights or resistance exercises), muscular endurance (e.g. walking, jogging, bicycling, or dancing) as well as yoga instruction and flexibility stretching. To supplement their fitness journey, all of our clients receive nutritional support. Our health and wellness professionals are supervised by our clinical team to ensure an integrated experience.
Exercise can be a daunting task and that is why our fitness and exercise support is also available individually to support our clients as they get started. Our personalized approach pairs each client with a member of our team of wellness professionals so that they can develop individualized fitness plans.
Wellness and Holistic Care
In addition to physical fitness, our holistic practitioners are an integral part of our treatment. Clients can be placed on a health and wellness track or purchase individual sessions with practitioners in private yoga instruction, meditation, reiki, aromatherapy, personal training and acupuncture.
Why Is Fitness Important For Our Clients?
Research shows that exercise can help reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, mania and cravings for substances. For young adults facing treatment or clinical conditions, their personal fitness can be an integral part of their road to independence.
