How do I find the client?

There is no effort required on your part to find a client. We will match you with a client who’s condition you specialize in and lives in your area.

Does insurance cover this?

Every insurance plan will be a bit different. If you are unsure as to which paramedical services are covered by your plan consult this document to contact your insurance provider and determine the coverage. When contacting them, ask for the following: “I am going to be working with a Kinesiologist/Exercise Physiologist through a supervised exercise program, will I have any coverage for this?”

Where does the program take place?

Our programs take place in your client’s home, or workplace so they do not have to worry about traveling to a gym or center. We are currently offering two different methods; in person with you, the Kinesiologist, travelling to them, or remotely where you will connect with your client online via Zoom.
