Medical Fitness Specialists help make the transition from medical management and/or physical therapy to a regular physical activity program following a surgery, an injury, a medical diagnosis or exacerbation of a pre-existing condition.

They possess the training and skills to work with medical conditions. Medical needs may include obesity, diabetes, hypertension, neuromuscular disorders, heart disease, lung disease, osteoporosis, orthopedic injury, cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, menopausal and hormonal changes, and mental health.

“Medical fitness specialist” does not just include personal trainers or fitness professionals. We welcome all fitness, wellness and health related disciplines on our Network, including chiropractors, massage therapists, physical therapists, nutritionists, etc. All of these professionals should work collaboratively to improve lives!

We are entering a new era with medical fitness in terms of understanding how exercise can help individuals with chronic illness, pain, stress, and depression as well as improve functionality — physically and mentally.

As the demand for fitness professionals increases, more people will enter this field. There remains no single, standard qualification or certification required to practice as a personal fitness trainer.

BUT, anyone with basic knowledge of fitness can advertise themselves as a fitness trainer. This is an injustice to the many experienced and credentialed fitness professionals. This also puts the consumer at risk and places an unfair burden on them to screen and research the credentials of a potential health and fitness professional. This is why Lisa Dougherty started the MedFit Network.

MOST of the general public do not know how to develop the components of a progressive fitness program. Those with medical issues have an even greater challenge. This includes people over 50, those with chronic medical conditions (for example: high blood pressure, blood sugar, high cholesterol, arthritis, osteoporosis), women going through menopause, had joint replacement,  battling depression, chronic pain, overweight or obesity, or those finished with prescribed physical therapy sessions. These individuals make up a majority of our U.S. population! They need to find a fitness professional that has specialty training to understand their specific needs and limitations.

We need professionals like you to join this national project & registry!

In this industry, education and continuing education is critical — not only for business success, but to effectively and safely work with clients of all skill levels and health histories. MFN professional membership includes education opportunities & discounts. Our goal is to help members gain skills within their profession to help improve the quality of life for the aging population and those with medical conditions or chronic disease.
