The Medical Fitness Association “Fellow” designation honors members who have demonstrated exceptional service to the Medical Fitness Association, medical fitness industry and to their local community.
Fellowship provides a means to recognize excellence, innovation and significant contributions to the medical fitness industry, and leadership in the Medical Fitness Association.
The Medical Fitness Association Fellowship is not just another membership category. It is reserved for current members who are physicians, scientists and healthcare/wellness/fitness professionals with a demonstrated interest in medical fitness whose documented accomplishments support the stated objectives of the Medical Fitness Association.
“As I began to move over to the Marketing Department for Healthplex Associates, I was asked to become more involved with MFA. This was a challenge for me as my background was not fitness, but accounting and business. I am always up for a challenge so I tackled this the only way I knew how which was to get involved with the organization. I started attending the annual meetings to better understand the mission of the organization and to meet people involved within the organization.
Leadership at MFA were so welcoming. I expressed interest in working on committees and low and behold, I found myself co-chairing the Outcomes Committee. I stayed with the Committee for two years and have since moved on to chair the Membership Committee. I also starting attending my Regional Conferences (SEMFA) which proved to be tons of fun and I found this was a really good way to network with other members. I love my chapter as it feels like one big happy family. Because they welcomed me with open arms, I accepted the position of secretary and am now the vice-chair.
MFA has allowed me to be a speaker at the Annual Conference, my Regional Conference and the Medical Fitness Institute. I enjoyed sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm for our industry with other members. I encourage all MFA members to become involved. This has been a very rewarding experience and I am humble to have been accepted as a Fellow of MFA.”
