Comox—based medical specialist Mia Jerritt is taking her Healthy Back Program online in order to share it with as many people as possible.

Healthy back program goes online

Mia Jerritt wants everyone to have a happy back.

After 30 years in the fitness industry, the Comox-based medical exercise specialist is selling The Core Studio and focusing on her new project which she hopes allows more people to experience a healthy and strong back.

“I could feel it in my heart it was time to move on,” Jerritt explained. “I knew I wouldn’t sell (the studio) unless it went to the right person. It’s in good hands.”

As of Oct. 28, the studio will be owned by Daris Tendler, so that Jerritt can now focus on her new project – The Healthy Back Program, available both online and on DVD.

“Before I could only get my hands on eight people at a time. Now I’d like to take the concept for people suffering from low back pain online so that someone in the Northwest Territories or in a tiny town in Utah who has a bad back can do the exercises in the comfort of their own home. I want to try to help as many people as I can to get better.”

With one in three people in North America suffering from chronic lower back pain, Jerritt noted the problem is “just going to get worse because we sit so much.”

Taking about two months to prepare and four days of straight shooting, Jerritt initially developed her Healthy Back Program in 2002. She admitted she’s been trying to create a video version of the program since 2007, but noted there was always something getting in the way.

“I kept trying to figure out what is the best platform for people (to do the program). I know how horrible back pain is, and it’s not rocket science, but it’s very methodical. I truly know it works.”

The five-and-a-half hour program is designed to be completed over a self-paced five to six week period.

Jerritt explained the program addresses the most common low back conditions including strains,   herniated discs, abdominal weakness, low back weakness and sciatic issues.

She said it’s “extremely comprehensive” with the first 20 minutes designed to educate the viewer on the body’s anatomy.

“While it is very comprehensive, it’s also very simplistic.”
