AMES.....Should You Join the Residency


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.

That’s why we created the "Advanced Medical Exercise Specialist Residency”.

By the time you’re done with the residency, you’re able to work directly with physicians and therapists, understanding even the most complex cases, and be able to manage a client’s case from the...

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". We recognized the future of medical exercise training and the need for Medical Exercise Specialists. With the changes to insurance reimbursement and the aging of North America, it was pretty easy to see. We were correct.

You don't build a profession on certifications; you build it by developing a specific body of knowledge and skill that is unique to that profession and...
