Have you heard of the exercise class we offer at the Tulalip Health Clinic? Our class leaders are Kendall McCauley, Athletic Trainer, and Stephen Coombs, CSCS from Summit Rehabilitation.
Kendall has been in practice for over 11 years and has spent the last seven working for Summit Rahab. She graduated in 2004 from Barry University in Florida then came back to her roots in the Pacific Northwest. Her personal interests include baseball, exploring the outdoors, crafting, spending time with her children and riding motorcycles.
Stephen has been working in the PT field for over four years. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and a USA Track and Field Level-1 Coach. His personal interests include running, hiking and camping. Stephen is also interested in furthering his career in PT and will be applying to physical therapy schools this summer.
We all know how important it is to stay active and we know how great we feel after exercising, but at times it’s hard to motivate ourselves. Sometimes we lose sight of what’s most important, our health.
Tulalip Health Clinic has teamed up with Summit Rehabilitation to provide a place where patients can learn to exercise to improve strength, endurance, speed and power. Our ultimate goal is to help create healthier lifestyles and further independent living. We do that by using body weight movement and a variety of exercise equipment ranging from free weights to rowing and treadmill machines. When the weather permits, we’ll get outside for some fresh air and take a stroll along the newly built walking trail. We will also be offering some new group activities such as chair yoga on the lawn.
If you’re ready to use what you have and do what you can, contact your doctor to request an authorization for exercise.
Our summer hours are Tuesdays and Fridays 8:00-11:00 a.m.
