METI - A Brief History of our Certifications

 

This is a summary of the Medical Exercise Training Institute (METI) workshops and certifications. METI started in 1994 when Dr Jones started to see the need for a fitness professional with the skills and knowledge to manage medical conditions after therapy services were concluded using only exercise.

METI offers: 1) the Medical Exercise Specialist; 2) the Post Rehab Conditioning Specialist and 3) the Medical Exercise Program Director certifications. In early 2021 we began our Advanced Medical Exercise Specialist Residency. For more details on our certifications go to www.MedicalExerciseTrainingInstitute.com.

What is a Medical Exercise Specialist?

 

A Medical Exercise Specialist (MES) is a fitness professional specializing in managing medical conditions using ONLY exercise.

The MES uses 3 primary modalities:

  1. Strength Training
  2. Cardiovascular Training

Medical Exercise Specialist....Are You Playing the Finite Game?

 

Medical Exercise Specialists are we truly MedXPROs or simply certification hoarders? Now we see a proliferation of medical exercise/medical fitness certifications and many are simply read a book and take an exam. Taught many times by instructors with partial backgrounds in healthcare and no direct management experience with some of the conditions reviewed in their courses. Are we playing the finite game or the infinite game?

When we started the Medical Exercise Specialist program in 1994, we weren't looking to offer another fitness certification but ultimately a new profession - "Medical Exercise Training".
