Medical Gym

Mass Bay Spine & Sport Physical Therapy

The Medical Gym at Mass Bay Spine & Sport Physical Therapy offers an environment for safe and effective exercise programs to improve overall health and wellness. Each program is designed with YOU in mind, taking into account your goals and any current limitations you may have due to injury or illness. Whether you would like to lose weight, increase mobility, manage chronic health issues, or simply increase your activity level, the Medical Gym will give you the tools and knowledge you need to exercise at your pace, in a safe and comfortable environment.

For Years, we’ve educated thousands of clients about healthy living and the benefits of regular exercise, and we’ve also learned a lot about why people don’t exercise. The most common reasons:

  • Lack of knowledge/Know-How
  • Limited access to equipment
  • Fear over getting hurt
  • Don’t like the gym environment

We’ve created our medical gym space to tackle those obstacles by providing clients with a comfortable environment and carefully designed programs, removing the excuses we all use preventing us from taking action.

What to expect:

  • A complete health and fitness assessment on your first visit.
  • A custom program designed to help you achieve your health and fitness goals
  • A variety of cardio and strength training equipment
  • A supportive, positive and motivating environment that will ensure you meet your fitness goals

  • Individuals with risk factors for chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, heart disease or high cholesterol, or those with chronic medical conditions that limit their normal daily function
  • Physical therapy patients who have completed treatment but would like to remain active or achieve a higher level of activity
  • Individuals with an upcoming orthopedic surgical procedure (joint replacement, ACL reconstruction, etc.) who would like to better prepare for surgery

    “I made the transition from physical therapy to the medical gym...I was overweight and very out of shape. In the past five months I’ve been working out three times a week. My endurance, flexibility and strength have improved greatly. Lauren the trainer is very knowledgeable and works well with all the gym members. I’m looking forward to the next six months, getting in better shape and losing more weight.”

    ~ James Doherty
