RxEx Medical Programming

We work with a variety of medical conditions to educate the participant, while teaching self-monitoring skills and progressing them toward independent exercise.

These programs utilize staff who have the Exercise is Medicine credential through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). ACSM sets the industry standard for current exercise guidelines, both clinical and non-clinical. This credential is designed to help exercise professionals work effectively as a member of the extended healthcare team, provide exercise guidance to individuals with the most common chronic diseases, and utilize behavioral support strategies to help a patient successfully integrate regular physical activity into their lives. To receive this credential you must have both a bachelor’s degree in a health and exercise science related field and hold at least one NCCA accredited fitness certification.
