The best way to set your facility apart is by achieving the
Medical Fitness Facility Certification

With a focus on medically sound prevention and rehabilitation programs, medical fitness centers play an essential role in the health and wellness of those individuals that they serve. The Medical Fitness Facility Certification process is an important step toward ensuring that your facility provides the quality and safety of the programs and services that are necessary to meet this critical responsibility. Certified medically integrated fitness centers feature the professional expertise and programming necessary to safely and effectively assist people, regardless of their current health statue, to develop, initiate, and maintain an active lifestyle that minimizes the risk of illness and disease and promotes health and wellness.

Watch this short video on Facility Certification: 

Based on the Medical Fitness Standards and Guidelines for Medical Fitness Center Facilities Publication, the certification process involves an in-depth review of a facility's adherence to the prescribed standards and guidelines. A number of key factors distinguish certified medical fitness centers, including:

  • Active and regular medical oversight
  • Certified and licensed staff
  • Written policies and procedures concerning user safety and the ability to respond appropriately to all emergencies
  • Disease management and prevention programs
  • Health-risk reduction and therapeutic-lifestyle programs
  • Individualized health screening
  • Testing and outcome tracking
  • Quality management, with a focus on measurable results
  • A focus on improving community health

Looking for a way to set your facility apart?
