                        Power-Up “Medical Exercise Professionals” bridge the gap between Healthcare & Fitness.

1. What is a Medical Exercise Professional (MedXPro)?

     Today, the average individual has fitness goals hampered by medical conditions, whether it’s diabetes, high blood pressure or recovering from a joint replacement surgery or weight-loss surgery, post-rehab or recently discharged from Physical Therapy or Chiropractic Care. MedXPro’s focus on improving the health & fitness of those in our Community with different medical concerns.

2. What credentials must an individual have at Power-Up to be considered a MedXPro?

In order to work as a MedXPro at Power-Up ALL of the following credentials must be met:

  • Hold at least one medically-based professional license (physical therapy, athletic training, nursing, etc).
  • Be a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA - CSCS).
  • Hold at least one of the following National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) Personal Trainer Certifications:               NASM, NSCA, or ACSM.
  • Have a minimum of 10 years’ experience working in rehabilitation services

3. What’s the difference between a Personal Trainer and a MedXPro?

According to The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), “There are currently no national or state licensing requirements for working as a personal trainer.” With no licensing requirements, anyone can claim to be a fitness professional and offer personal training services.”

4. Why should you consider a Medical Exercise Gym like Power-Up?

The key word, of course, is medical. At the gym, the emphasis is often physical performance and appearance. And while losing weight and looking good can certainly boost your self-confidence, it’s important to know what’s going on inside your body. That’s what makes you a healthier person. At a medically based fitness center like Power-Up, the focus is on helping you get fit, inside and out.

A medical exercise gym addresses the health-care side of the equation. This is especially important if you have any chronic health conditions or have never exercised regularly before. We can assess your personal health and existing risk factors to develop a custom program just for you. Plus, we can help you learn the ropes and always have safety in mind. All this is especially important if you have heart disease, hypertension, obesity, hyperlipidemia and/or just general debilitation.

Power-Up MedXPro’s know how to work closely with your doctors and specialists to complement their treatment plan. This approach keeps everyone on the same page and working toward the same health goals.

At Power-Up, we believe exercise is medicine. It can help control and reverse the effects of many chronic health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and others. It can also go a long way toward preventing the development of these diseases.

Working out at a gym or health club may be uncomfortable if you’re exercising for the first time or returning to exercise after a long hiatus. At a medical exercise facility such as Power-Up, you can expect people to be at a wide range of fitness levels. That makes the environment comfortable and stress free for everyone.
