Exercise and physical activity benefit just about everyone, especially older adults and those affected with a chronic condition or disability.
According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, chronic diseases and conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and arthritis, are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.
At Fitness Continuum Medical Fitness we specialize in working with people with chronic conditions, disabilities, post-rehabilitation, injury prevention (prehab) and special populations. Through carefully planned customized exercise, nutrition and wellness programs, and working in tandem with your doctor, we can help you improve your quality of life, be more active and reduce your risk of developing injuries and other chronic conditions.
"If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health."
Eduardo discovered functional training while studying at Dr. Anthony Abbott's Fitness Institute International, and found it to be an incomparable realm in which to help anyone get in shape and prevent injuries.
After receiving his Certified Personal Training Specialist certification (CPTS), he went through a six-month Professional Functional Training Internship at the Institute of Human Performance, where he got to work with patients with severe pre-operative and post-operative spine conditions.
Experiencing how people regained their mobility and improved their quality of life, made him refocus his life goals and dedicate himself to working with individuals of all ages suffering from chronic conditions and post-rehabilitation patients.
In the past several years, Eduardo has collaborated with the Cantor Spine Center, one of the leading spine disorder specialist institutions in the nation, helping their patients to both recover from surgery, as well as to prevent it.
Eduardo now lives his passion by helping post-rehab stroke patients, spinal injury patients, cancer patients and other recovering individuals, and designing customized exercise and wellness programs to match his clients' specific needs.

Not only did Eduardo become my trainer, he became my friend. I am so incredibly lucky to be on this fitness journey with him by my side. I'm so excited for what's to come!"

"... Eduardo turned my life around tremendously. He helped me through those days when I felt there was no tomorrow and brought back the confidence in my ability to push and move forward.
I am now able to walk 3 to 4 miles unassisted in my neighborhood every day and his home exercises improve my ability to move around and keep mobile"

Our experience with Eduardo has been stellar, and he has been pure joy for both my daughter and I to work with."

Brain Tumor Patient
"...Eduardo uses state-of the art techniques and drills to keep our teenager motivated as she continues to recover.
Only months after her surgery, Kate is back to being the competitive volleyball player she was, and she is in the best shape she’s ever been in. We are so happy with Kate’s progress. Thank you Eduardo!”

Spinal Fusion Post-Operative Patient's Parents
"My 17 yr old daughter was in pain and miserable
with a spinal fracture that wouldn't heal.
Our spine surgeon recommended strength and conditioning and post-rehabilitation treatment with Eduardo.
I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes... after just a week we both knew it was working.
This may be the biggest positive change yet
in my daughter's life!
Eduardo has made all the difference.”
Spinal Fusion Post-Operative Patient's Mother
"My 14yr old daughter injured herself during the past volleyball season, and ended up having surgery.
Eduardo was recommended to us by both a neuro & ortho surgeon. They stated that he is the best athletic trainer around and his fitness training is like no other!
Eduardo is amazing!! He knows so much about the body and how it works. He genuinely cares about his clients and is an expert in his field.
My daughter really responded to his approach and direction.
She can't wait to begin the new volleyball season!”

my A1C from 9.8 to 7.0.
My glucose level has lowered from 200 to 114.
I consider this a miracle.
Additionally, I no longer have high blood pressure and my doctor has stopped all my medications”
