Specialties & Eating Disorder Support

Safe, private and personalized programs to fit your unique needs.

We can help with over-exercising and under feeding, while assisting with establishing the boundaries and balance right for you.

We will help you safely reintegrate exercise into your life after ED treatment. As a weight-neutral training space, our focus is on performance and abilities, not the scale or weigh-ins.

We create balanced workout plans that prevent over-exercising, and when appropriate, we will collaborate with your Registered Dietician, Nutritionist and/or other members of your treatment team to stay consistent with your wellness goals.
