Exercise is critical for your health, but finding the right fitness program can be a challenge—especially when your energy is a precious resource. 

MS Moves will help you get active while focusing on your functional abilities. 

Join us for this new exercise program that will help you reach your best abilities in day-to-day life.

The MS Moves Program offers you:

  • Two new exercise videos per month
  • Monthly Zoom meetups with your peers and instructor
  • Motivation and accountability resources via email

Why Participate

Exercise is critical for your health, but finding the right fitness program can be a challenge—especially when your energy is a precious resource. 

MS Moves will help you use your time wisely, getting active while focusing on your functional abilities. 

The MS Moves Program is led by physical therapist and MS certified specialist Mandy Rohrig.

These 15-minute videos will guide you through functional fitness routines designed and led by Mandy. Each video is like a short PT session - at no cost to you!

MS Moves is a perfect way to supplement your existing exercise routine or get started with entry-level exercise!


What To Expect

The complete MS Moves Program includes:

  • Access to each new MS Moves with Mandy video as it's released
  • Reminders on how and when to complete your exercise videos
  • Monthly Zoom meet-ups to consult with Mandy and hear tips from your peers
  • Accountability tools to help you make the most of this program

Each video is thoughtfully designed for people with MS, including an adequate warm-up, cooling breaks, and accessibility variations. (You can complete this entire program seated!)

Throughout the program, you will focus on functional goals such as:

  • Lifting and carrying
  • Sitting-to-standing
  • Core and posture
  • Hand function
  • Bed mobility
  • Stairs, curbs, and leg mobility

Is This Program Right For You?

MS affects everyone differently, and it also may affect you differently over time.

With that in mind, MS Moves can help you no matter your current ability level.

  • If you already move with ease, you might find that MS Moves is a complement to your existing exercise routines. It can help you maintain your functional abilities.
  • If you move around well but struggle with some stiffness, strength, or mobility challenges, this program can help you optimize your abilities.
  • If you have mobility challenges that interfere with your everyday life, this program can help you improve your abilities! These exercise videos include modifications that you can complete while seated or with mobility aids.


While this program cannot guarantee positive results, we will be here to help you get the most out of the program!
