    Taxonomy Code: PL-6600.5100

    Programs that enable people with a sedentary life style or health conditions such as high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, heart disease, lung disease, diabetes or obesity to safely participate in exercise routines that improve their flexibility, range of motion, cardiovascular and pulmonary efficiency and endurance, or their overall physical conditioning. Participants receive a thorough physical examination which is repeated periodically to measure progress; and their blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm, oxygen levels and blood glucose levels are monitored, as necessary, during exercise sessions to ensure safety. The exercise regimen progresses slowly and may include walking, treadmill, free weights, steps and other activities. The goal of monitored fitness programs is to encourage the continual development of a healthy lifestyle while assuring that there are no ill health effects along the way.
