Physical Performance & Wellness Center – West Florida Rehabilitation Institute


– Hello, my name is Darin Schubek. I’m the Physical Performance
and Wellness Coordinator here at the Wellness Center at West Florida Rehabilitation Institute. The Wellness Center is a
rehabilitation exercise facility located at West Florida
Rehabilitation Institute. It is our primary purpose to establish a readily available exercise program for anyone interested in
continuing or maintaining and improving the present
physical fitness level after they complete
their cardiac pulmonary or physical therapy program. We’re also available for anyone that is 50 years of age or older and any employee on West
Florida Hospital campus who would like to improve their
current physical condition. Our programs are developed
by our professional staff who are all college educated
and certified professionals including strength and
conditioning specialist, exercise physiologists,
and exercise specialist. The Wellness Center
exercise equipment available includes a full line of
resistive exercise equipment, multi-purpose resistive
exercise equipment, hydraulic exercise equipment, and free weights for strengthening. As well the Wellness
Center has treadmills, elliptical trainers,
upper body ergometers, stair steppers, and stationary bikes for cardiovascular conditioning. Our services at the Wellness Center also that are available
include blood pressure checks, heart rate checks,
nutritional information, proper mechanics information,

former therapy patients. Our staff will continue
to monitor new patients and new members until they become very independent with their
particular exercise protocol. We also have a heated
swimming pool available at the Wellness Center, which has regularly scheduled
water aerobics classes, warm water arthritis
maintenance exercise classes, and open pool use times
