Improving the quality of life in individuals fighting pulmonary diseases
“Your disease doesn’t define your character™”
The Pulmonary Performance Institute’s (PPI) goal is to help people who are fighting a pulmonary disease by improving their quality of life through exercise.
Through our own research and in collaboration with other professionals (e.g., doctors, physical therapists, nutritionists, researchers, etc.),we believe that we can enhance the exercise training approaches for individual’s exercising with a pulmonary condition.
Exercising is an essential component to one’s quality of life, and we know how challenging it can be to simply put together one type of program or routine. At PPI, we aim to design programs by incorporating movement and exercise training techniques that have been backed by research and are specifically geared to increase strength and endurance abilities for individual’s with pulmonary diseases.
The combination of science and exercise application are key in the development and understanding of what fits best for each individual.We understand that everyone is different and that everyone has unique goals. Our mission is to help facilitate your understanding of what type, duration, and frequency of exercising best fits you and your lifestyle, in order to help you create a program that you would like to accomplish to ultimately improve your quality of life.
Exercise Consults are individualized appointments with an exercise physiologist. The exercise physiologist will answer any exercise related questions that you have. We currently do not give out nutritional advice, and recommend you talk with your clinical dietician.
The calls will last 20-30 minutes long.
One of the hardest parts about training is finding a program that best fit your goals based on your life and career. PPI’s online training programs are developed based on the person, what they are trying to accomplish. Cookie cutter programs that are given out to multiple people will not effectively help you reach your goals, because everyone is different. Everyone has different goals, everyone is built differently, and no one lives the same life.
At PPI we set up an initial exercise consultation to talk with you to see what you like to do and where you are trying to get. Our goal is to better understand who you are, so we can help you on your exercise journey. All our online programs are customized based on the individual and their medical history. Throughout the training we set up check ins to go over your program. This allows us to update it based on how you are doing. The programs come with videos and descriptions of the exercises to give you the ability to look back through the exercises and self-correct accordingly. The goal is to get to the point where you do not need us anymore, and you feel confident that you can put together your own workout routine based on your goals.
What the program consists of:
Pre and Post Testing
Exercise Coaching Support
Online Training Overview
We will set up a 30-minute consultation. After the consultation we will send you a questionnaire pertaining to your past training history, medical history, your goals and how much time you have to commit to your training. From there we will have you send us postural photos, a video of you walking, as well as some pre muscular endurance and strength test. Once we have looked at all the information, we will put together a program that address your goals; this could include soft tissue work, postural and respiratory control exercises, dynamic flexibility, stability and/or mobility exercises, strength, endurance and cardiovascular training. Once you have received your program we will set up a phone conversation to go over it. After the first week of completing the program, we will set up another phone conversation to make any adjustments needed and then check in on the 4th week to see how everything is going.
