For individuals with neurologic impairments or people using wheelchairs, the Burke Fitness Challenge provides an individualized exercise program to maintain or improve cardiovascular and muscular stamina. Membership includes two to three orientation sessions with a trained professional to help build the appropriate exercise program and determine which equipment is beneficial for use. A staff member will always be present to help answer any questions, and progress members upon request. The program takes place in the Outpatient Physical Therapy department.
An optional Body Weight Support Package using the Biodex Body Weight Support Machine is also available. This package is an additional $300 and includes 10 sessions at 30 minutes per session.
