Reason 4 - Why Do We Need Medical Exercise Program Directors?!


Celebrating 25 Years of Medical Exercise Program Directors

In 1994, the Medical Exercise Training Institute (METI) introduced the groundbreaking concept of the Medical Exercise Specialist. Fast forward to 2023, and the landscape of fitness and healthcare has transformed dramatically. Medical Exercise Training (MET) isn't just a fleeting trend; it's a crucial, growing field in health and wellness management.


Why Medical Exercise Training is More Than Just Fitness

Medical exercise training has carved out its niche, distinct from traditional personal training. It's a field that demands precision, a deeper understanding of medical conditions, and a comprehensive approach to exercise as a functional restorative tool. MET isn't just about physical fitness; it's about contributing to the health and wellness of individuals with specific medical needs.


The Role of the Medical Exercise Program Director (MEPD)

Navigating the complexities of MET requires a specialized skill set, and this is where the Medical Exercise Program Director comes into play. The MEPD is not just a trainer; they are a vital bridge between the medical community and fitness professionals. Their role is to manage and administer a medical exercise program efficiently and effectively.
