Healthy Futures in Scottsdale offers the area’s longest running Intensive Outpatient Program for eating disorders. In addition, we also are experts in helping anyone wanting to improve their fitness, health and wellness, through our “Individual Movement and Exercise Therapy.” (IMET)
IMET is led by Healthy Futures team member and exercise therapy consultant Kelley Aungst, NSCA-CPT. Kelley, along with Healthy Futures Director, Mia Elwood, developed IMET after recognizing the need for exercise and wellness programs for those in the eating disorder community – programs that are safe both physically and for mental health.
IMET offers many benefits, especially for those already making progress at Healthy Futures. Kelley will bring all necessary equipment to Healthy Futures and meet clients for sessions on site.
Because Kelley is a Healthy Futures team member, she has a unique understanding about developing individual fitness programs for those with eating disorders. “I know how important proper exercise is to overall wellness and recovery,” she said. “I’ll be using a holistic approach for body and mind, for our clients’ physical well being, and that includes offering an individual program based on that person’s needs and individual goals, not someone else’s.”
Kelley is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and holds a specialty certification in Holistic Fitness, which encompasses Eating Disorders, Traumatic stress, depression and anxiety.
