Crucial Medical Fitness Component #1: A Defined Market

I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, “Become a master of one, not a jack of all trades.”  If you haven’t, the idea is that you will be more productive and useful if you have laser-like focus on one thing, than if you dabble in many different areas.

Health clubs practice the “jack of all trades” approach to fitness and try to have something there for everyone.  As a health professional with an individual practice, you’re not going to be able to compete with health clubs, gyms and hospital-based wellness centers on that front.

So, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is biting off more than you can chew by trying to offer programs and services to meet the needs of every age group and fitness level in your practice.  You need to specialize.  Clearly define your niche markets — no more than one or two — and offer those niches a specialized solution for their needs.  Don’t try to target all your patients, or you’ll end up with no patients in your programs.

Healthcare Practice Consultants Shows Doctors How to Create Additional Revenue with Medical Fitness

R&R2President and Founding Partner of the Medical Fitness Academy (http://www.medicalfitnessacademy.com) Rich Farina and Vice President Rita Bryan are experienced healthcare practice consultants who are able to show doctors how to expand their practices through medical fitness. Their Medical Fitness Academy offers doctors a four-step plan that they may utilize to generate additional revenues.

Medical Fitness Academy’s Rich Farina and Rita Bryan have combined their years of business and fitness experience to create a company that is able to help doctors generate more revenue. The team joined forces a while ago and soon saw positive results from their efforts to combine health and fitness in the doctor’s office.

“Doctors may recommend that a patient get fit and then send them on their way,” says Farina, “but that rarely works. However, by offering easy access to a medical fitness program that is designed specifically by the doctor and located in their office, a healthcare provider has created the scenario for success. As healthcare practice consultants, Rita and I are able to provide doctors with the information and plan they need to make medical fitness an part of their practice.”

Workout To Wake Up

Almost 1 in 5 people say they feel tired more often than not. These people grab the extra cup of coffee or an energy drink to try and beat their fatigue but they are going about it all wrong. Exercise is probably the last thing on your mind when you are tired, but it can help. Some studies show that exerting some of your energy may mean more overall energy throughout the day.

How could exercise, the thing that burns the most energy, give you more energy? It is actually very simple. When you move it increases the blood flow throughout your body. That means that more oxogen and nutrients are getting pumped to your muscles, and that gives you more energy.

A little bit of exercise can go a long way to boost energy levels in fatigued, sedentary people. In one study, experts found that healthy young people who did a low-intensity exercise like walking three times a week for six weeks:
