Transitioning to medical exercise training (MET) can be challenging for personal trainers just completing the Medical Exercise Specialist certification.

Let me take a moment to talk about creating a medical exercise training practice. Most of our students are personal trainers, health coaches, massage therapists, fitness trainers, or similar professionals. For most of them, medical exercise training (MET) is another tool in their toolbox.
Now, we’re finding physicians, surgeons, and other health professionals are looking for more advanced MET services for their patients. Many of our graduates want to know how to handle more complex MET cases. They want the skills to be able to handle client cases effectively and speak with doctors with the complete knowledge and confidence of the exercise programs they have developed.

Each MESSG session is recorded and available for your later viewing. The schedule for this MESSG is noted below. You may join anytime. You may repeat the MESSSG as many as you feel necessary in your preparation for the MES final examination.
Beginning in February 2022 all Medical Exercise Specialists, Post Rehab Conditioning Specialists and Medical Exercise Program Directors are required to complete "Medical Exercise Professional Ethics Training".
As the need for Medical Exercise Training grows, MedXPROs will develop relationships with clients with medical conditions, medical professionals and insurance carriers. These relationships as well as the services provided by the MedXPRO will require a greater understanding and awareness of ethical standards.
The Medical Exercise Professional Ethics Training is a 90 minute to 2 hour online course reviewing the ethical principles governing the delivery of medical exercise training services. There is a ethic quiz at the conclusion of the training. The certification of completion must be submitted with your METI renewal documents when you renew.
