From Referral to Recovery and Beyond

Many physicians acknowledge the benefits of exercise for their patients with chronic conditions but lack the resources to create and manage long-term medical fitness programming. MyFitRx® bridges this gap by providing a “next phase of treatment” following rehabilitation or diagnosis.

However, connecting physicians with such programs remains a challenge. Power Wellness addresses this by:

  • Identifying physician champions: These passionate advocates promote medical fitness programming to their peers.
  • Targeted marketing: Educational materials resonate with physicians by addressing their specific challenges and respecting their time.
  • Medical Advisory Committees (MACs): Physician collaboration fosters site-specific programs, optimizes referrals, and guides health assessments.
  • Community outreach: Targeted marketing ensures patients and physicians receive relevant information.

The Journey to Wellness.

Individuals are often referred to MyFitRx® by their primary care physicians who recognize the program’s potential to complement their treatment plans. Upon referral, participants collaborate with our team to choose the most suitable 8-week program from the ten available options, ensuring the specific needs and goals of each individual are addressed. MyFitRx® features personalized exercise plans developed by credentialed professionals and tailored to individual health conditions. Participants benefit from expert guidance, group support, and ongoing monitoring to ensure safety and effectiveness. Recognizing the lasting benefits of MyFitRx®, a significant number of participants transition into long-term memberships at our facilities. This highlights the program’s success in creating a sustainable path to wellness.

MyFitRx® is more than just a medical fitness programming option. This program is empowering individuals, fostering collaboration, and offering a clear path to continued wellness through membership, MyFitRx® is making a significant impact on the well-being of countless individuals. MyFitRx® fosters collaboration within the healthcare community. By providing a reliable solution for physicians to address their patients’ exercise needs, the program strengthens relationships between healthcare providers and fitness centers.
