CALLING ALL MEDICAL EXERCISE PROFESSIONALS!! I know you're seeing more medical exercise training (MET) clients and receiving more referrals from medical professionals. All is well with your medical exercise training practice and you’re looking forward to building referral relationships in 2023. But many of your new MET clients are far more challenging than you expected. Let’s be honest, you aren’t fully prepared to manage and train some of these clients?
That's why we established the Medical Exercise Specialist Master's Training Series! The MES Master's Training Series starts January 5th, 2023. The Masters is designed to help you learn to better manage these complicated and challenging MET clients. The Masters will use a series of “medical exercise case studies”. The case studies are presented by medical exercise professionals (MedXPROs) and medical professionals from around the world. The MedXPRO will share their most challenging clients'...
The Advanced MES Virtual workshop starts in 4 days - October 20 - 23, 2022. Day 2 of the AMES will go deep into a number of areas. These areas require a much greater understanding for a medical exercise professional than a personal trainer.
Histology or the science of tissue healing and maintenance is now am important component for all medical exercise professionals. Also, a new and growing area for MedXPROs is neurology. Managing post rehab stroke, MS and Parkinson's clients, to name a few conditions, will continue to grow over the next 20 years.

As a medical exercise professional taking a medical history is not as simple as having the client complete a PARQ. Taking and understanding vital signs is a must to determine if the client is appropriate for exercise that day and possibly beyond. FOMs or functional outcome measures are essential in determining if the client is progressing and are understood by both medical and fitness professionals as indicators of client progress. Both manual muscle testing and goniometry are both necessary to communicate to medical professionals the status and progress of the client. These are all skills and knowledge every medical exercise professional must possess to build a strong practice.
None of this is designed to take the place of...
