Medical Supervision Options

Our Medical Fitness Model

As a medical fitness center affiliated with Mid-Columbia Medical Center, Water’s Edge offers our members the opportunity to work toward their goals in a medically supervised environment.

If you need or desire medical supervision, you will benefit from an extensively trained staff of health professionals that is directed by a physician, Dr. Paul Cardosi, and includes nationally certified fitness specialists, exercise physiologists, physical therapists, dietitians, health educators and others.

At Water’s Edge you will find a non-threatening environment, state-of-the-art equipment and expert staff providing whatever level of supervision you need to achieve your best quality of life.

Medical Exercise Program

Our goal is to help you become confident in your exercise while improving strength, endurance, balance and flexibility. You will be guided by our exercise specialist, and your exercise program will take into account your current fitness level, goals and other factors. A doctor’s referral is required to participate in the Medical Exercise Program.

Participants attend two sessions per week, Mon–Fri from 9 am to 4 pm.

(access to pool, group exercise classes or sauna is not included in the program)

Pool Medical Exercise

Do you want to use the pool to improve your health but are unsure how to get started?

Enjoy all of the benefits of our supervised Medical Exercise Program while taking advantage of the therapeutic qualities of our salt-water pool. You will learn how to move and get a gentle work out without creating unnecessary pressure on your joints. The warm water and buoyancy are also beneficial for pain relief.

Scheduled sessions will be guided by licensed professional staff, and you do not need to know how to swim to participate. As you become familiar with a wide range of exercises you will experience increased confidence in the pool.

All programs are personalized with the ultimate goal of helping you transition to independent pool use and enjoy a better quality of life. Aquatic exercise can be used for a wide range of conditions with few limitations. For safety purposes, participation in this program requires a physician’s referral.
