Bridging The Gap Between Fitness and Medicine
10/23/2021 | 8:00 am to 9:00 am
A fitness professional has the ability to bridge the gap between the rehabilitation center and a fitness center or personal training studio. We can help a client make the transition from physical therapy to an exercise program. Although there are exceptions, the deconditioned and those with chronic disease are often ignored by fitness centers. We can help those with chronic diseases and improve their quality of life by tailoring exercise programs to their specific needs and issues.
This presentation will help fitness professionals learn how to work with the medical profession. You will learn how to connect with the medical community in order to help those with chronic diseases improve their health through exercise. Many of us have learned how to work with clients who have a chronic disease but do not know how to go about establishing exercise programs in their community nor get the word out about their expertise to the public.
