What To Expect

The staff at the Neuromuscular Wellness Center understands that starting a fitness program can be intimidating. To increase your comfort, here’s an idea about what you might expect as a participant in the program:

On your first visit:

  • Visit with Dr. Charmane Kandt, program coordinator, to discuss your health concerns and fitness goals.
  • Work with Dr. Kandt to develop an exercise program and weekly routine.
  • Get a basic health and mobility assessment.
  • Meet the student trainers and other program participants.
  • Become acquainted with the exercise equipment.

On every visit:

  • For your safety, staff monitor your blood pressure, pulse and oxygen saturation.
  • Most visits typically last an hour, which includes exercise.
  •  Consult with staff regarding your wellness.
  •  Get support from other participants and caregivers.
  •  Participate in tailored cardiovascular, mobility and functional exercises.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Dr. Charmane Kandt at ckandt@fhsu.edu or (785) 628-5564.
