Medically Adapted Gym (M.A.G.)

REOPENING UPDATE:  Our Medically-Adapted Gym will be reopening to members on August 3, 2020.  Our capacity has decreased substantially, due to the need to limit the number of people in the office at one time.  In addition, we are taking many other precautions to ensure the safety of our members, staff and patients.  If you are interested in learning more about our Medically-Adapted Gym, please contact MAG Director of Operations, Aaron Brustad at  

WHAT is it?  HARTZ PT’s Medically Adapted Gym (MAG) is a unique monthly fitness program which identifies and addresses strengths and weaknesses of each member to develop a customized plan that is monitored and progressed by a qualified professional in a welcoming small-gym environment.  The MAG is available at our Lancaster-West and Mount Joy (starting January 2020) locations.

WHY go to the MAG?

  • An initial evaluation by a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy will identify any areas of concern, individual strengths and weaknesses (billable to insurance)
  • Customized exercise plan is created and progressed by an Exercise Physiologist (4 year degree)
  • Scheduled appointments supervised by our qualified professionals keep you safe and accountable
  • Month-to-month membership fee with no long-term contract or initiation fees.
  • Less intimidating environment than commercial gyms allows all members to feel comfortable and supported to progress at their own pace

WHO goes to the MAG? Our MAG program is a great option for those who:

  • need a little extra guidance in their workouts in order to reduce the risk of injury
  • feel intimidated by commercial gyms and are looking for a more intimate, comfortable space in which to achieve their fitness goals
  • have been discharged from PT but need additional supervision before returning to the traditional gym
  • are looking to begin a general exercise and conditioning program

With your M.A.G. membership, an exercise physiologist is always on-site and available to assist you with your fitness goals. This expert advice and guidance is included in your monthly fee!
