Wellness Center


If you want to start boosting your energy, improving your strength, and reducing body fat, then you owe it to yourself to start getting in shape at West Portal Physical Therapy’s state-of-the-art Wellness Center where membership is growing every month.

We offer a 26-week, by-appointment, strength training, and conditioning medical fitness and wellness program supervised in small groups by a personal trainer. You can improve your quality of life with our core program of just three, one-hour, supervised sessions per week. A two-session per week option is also available. Each session includes 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training. We are open six days a week for you to maintain or improve your levels of fitness using the latest in Nautilus NOVA equipment. If you wish to enhance your results and optimize health-related benefits, we also provide metabolic testing and a "Quick Start" Nutrition and Weight Loss Plan.


To insure that you are fully prepared to embark on a rewarding fitness routine, we have arranged for the following introductory program components:


As our goal is to provide you with a full range of wellness services, we also offer resting and exercising metabolic testing. We all know that our metabolisms slow as we age, and this can lead to increased weight. A simple, 12- to 15-minute breathing test can measure your resting metabolic rate or RMR, which allows us to determine your target caloric zones. These zones, based on your own body chemistry, are the key to how many calories you need to consume to maintain your ideal weight and how many calories you can consume to loose weight safely. You can now "eat to your metabolism" rather than follow established diet programs, most of which are developed from general guidelines and not designed for you. Please click here to read more about our "Quick Start" Nutrition and Weight Loss Program.

Additionally, we offer the same Korr Medical VO2 Exercise Metabolic Testing System used to train professional athletes. Your personal trainer will use your exercising metabolic rate or EMR test results to identify the specific heart rate zones where you personally train and burn calories most efficiently rather than rely on the customary formulas to determine these measures. This precise, cardio/aerobic training approach will assist you to burn more fat calories both during and after your exercise sessions.


We are approaching capacity for our current hours of operation, so please consider joining now so you take advantage of this opportunity to start exercising in a relaxed, semi-private environment. After an affordable assessment fee, you will be exercising at just over $11 a session in our core program. Now is the time to take the next step and work to achieve measurable results in our personalized, caring environment.
