Impaired balance may affect the choices of exercise we prescribe to individuals with MS.  Sensory loss and muscle paresis can also have an impact on fitness training for these individuals.  The environment is a key component for a successful MS training program. Heat intolerance is one of the factors individuals with MS must take into consideration.  This may affect intensity and or duration of exercises Markee Personal Training prescribes.
