The goal of the Medical Fitness Association initiative is to promote an increase in physical activity levels in all ages and to highlight the medical fitness difference. During this international event medical fitness centers throughout the U.S., Canada, Brazil, Europe, and Asia are offering resources and educational opportunities for their communities promoting the medical fitness difference and raising awareness of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
This is a unifying event, bringing medically integrated fitness facilities around the world together for one purpose – to encourage the communities that they serve to be active and to commit to a fit and healthy lifestyle. “What a fun way to start or keep moving, said Stephanie Howie , Fitness Director The Center for Health Improvement. During Medical Fitness Week we are challenging our Center Members and the community to participate in the MOVE150 and WALK10K initiatives. These are two small initiatives that fit with our motto that is “To Get Well Sooner and Stay Well Longer. It’s also a great time for the community to try out all the programs and services that The Center has to offer.”
