A Center for Complete Health and Wellness
Every day we hear about miracle drugs or highly invasive surgeries that promise an increase in quality of life and renewed exuberance. Capital Region Sam B. Cook Healthplex is here to help understand what provides real results and what only offers empty promises. The philosophy of complete health encompasses all aspects of mind, body and spirit to help you maximize your potential and strengthen your weaknesses. In addition to fitness programs and therapy regimens, guests also can align body with mind and spirit through massage therapy and eastern influenced programs such as yoga and tai chi.
We understand no two individuals are alike and, thus, no one program or protocol will work for everyone. That is why each patient or fitness center member is individually assessed to create personalized goals and plans to help reach those goals. Whether you are a patient recovering from heart surgery or a new mom looking to shape up we are available to develop a plan for you.
Fitness Programs The Sam B. Cook Healthplex offers a number of options for reaching your fitness goals, ranging from group classes to modern cardiovascular equipment and free weights. Personal training sessions also are available from experienced, certified exercise physiologists.
