Medically Adapted Gym (M.A.G.)

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!
