METI is Celebrating 29 Years of "Bridging the Gap"


The Medical Exercise Training Institute (METI) is 29 years old!! Yes, we started the medical exercise/post-rehab movement with the Medical Exercise Specialist workshop and certification in 1994. 13 students attended that first course. Since we have trained Medical Exercise Specialists on six continents around the world. 

We watched post-rehab fitness grow into medical exercise training and witnessed the birth of our new profession. We owe all of our success to the amazing Medical Exercise Specialists (MES), Post Rehab Conditioning Specialists (PRCS), and Medical Exercise Program Directors (MEPD) we met along this 29-year journey. Thank you for all you have done to build this new profession and the support you have given METI. You made us look good by providing great service to your clients and developing relationships with medical professionals. You proved medical exercise training WORKS!!

If you are an AAFP, AAHFRP, or METI MES, PRCS, or MEPD,...

Worldwide Medical Exercise Training (MET) is growing rapidly. There are several MET myths and misconceptions we must address as we move forward as a profession. In this post we will review 6 of the "11 Medical Exercise Training Myths and Misconceptions". Allow me to list and briefly discuss these first 6.

  1. Medical Professionals Recognize Fitness Certifications - most medical professionals have no idea of fitness certifications or their certifying bodies. For medical professionals, the bottom line within their profession is licensure and area of specialization.
