Medical Fitness Academy Now Offering “Done For You” Turnkey Wellness System

licenseIf you haven’t heard yet, the Medical Fitness Academy is now offering qualified healthcare professionals a unique opportunity to implement our Medical Fitness Formula™ Turnkey Wellness System in their practices.

I can’t express how excited I am about this, and so far the feedback from healthcare professionals has been overwhelmingly positive!

The reason we decided to offer a comprehensive turnkey system is that we were encountering many healthcare professionals who wanted to start a medical fitness and wellness program in their practices, but needed personalized guidance on how exactly to make that happen.

Since my partner and co-founder Rita Bryan and I have almost 40 years of experience doing just that, we knew this was a need we could fill. So we set to work designing a system that would explain exactly how to do it — and do it successfully.

How Fitness Professionals Help Healthcare Professionals Build Larger Practices And Attract New Patients

One of the most overlooked personally-rewarding and lucrative opportunities that most fitness professionals miss is collaborating with healthcare practitioners in developing a medical fitness & wellness program together.

With the latest trend of including both exercise and nutrition as part of patient consultation and care plans, fitness professionals stand to expand their careers and income by knowing how to approach practitioners and work with them in creating an onsite medical fitness program.

Once the medical physician, physical therapist or chiropractor realizes the “hidden goldmine” they have in both their active and inactive patient files, a fitness professional with the right credentials and proven “formula” can take their skill set to a whole new level.

The “key” to success is understanding the patient population that the healthcare practitioner services in their practice.  By providing a systematic approach to implementing and growing a cash-based medical fitness program, the practitioner soon realizes the multiple benefits such an program brings to the practice, including its natural ability to attract new patients to the practice.

Get Ahead Of The Wave: Your Colleagues Are Already Prescribing Exercise

A new report from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) this month shows that more patients are getting pescriptions for exercise from their doctors.  Are you one of these healthcare practitioners who see a vision beyond the traditional “standard” in treating patients? I hope so.

“Trends over the past 10 years suggest that the medical community is increasing its efforts to recommend participation in exercise and other physical activity that research has shown to be associated with substantial health benefits,” states the report, from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.

In 2010, 1 in 3 adults who saw a doctor or other health care professional was advised to increase their physical activity as a means of maintaining or improving their health. That’s a significant increase over 2000, when less than a quarter of consultations included such advice.

What Does This Mean To You?

Considering a Fitness Franchise as a Wellness Program to Your Practice? Think Again…

Most healthcare professionals that I talk to love the idea of incorporating a medical fitness and wellness program into their practice, because of the obvious benefits of being able to really help their patients be more healthy and adding an all-cash revenue stream to their income.

This much is pretty consistent within the healthcare industry.

However, there are differing views on the best way to make this happen, and I must say — one of the ways really is WAY better than the other.

Basically, there are two options: 1) start your own program from the ground up using a proven “template” or 2) buy some sort of developed fitness franchise and adhere to their exact rules and regulations.

The second option might sounds nice, right? At least, it sounds like less work. But the truth is there are some major downsides to buying a franchise.
