When I was first introduced to the Medical Fitness Network, I was super excited as I immediately saw the value in having my own profile page and being able to have access to great education programs, medical and health organizations, and the ability to network with other Medical Fitness Professionals like me.Trevor Wicken, MS, CES, PES, NKT2, TRX Sports Medicine Practitioner, http://medicalfitnessnetwork.org/user/trevor-wicken
I was also super excited that MFN could connect me to those individuals in my area who needed my help and were looking for a fitness specialist to help them manage their medical conditions through exercise. This year alone, I had 3 individuals reach out to me (two with MS, and one with Parkinson’s) that became consistent clients. This generated an extra $12,000 for me from three people who finally found a “trainer” that understood their needs, knew about their medical condition, and could design an exercise program that was tailor made for them.
The Medical Fitness Network is a valuable resource, educational and marketing tool that has helped connect me to my ideal clients, provide a platform to network with medical fitness colleagues, and has blessed me with the opportunity to build more impactful relationships in my life.
Thank you for all that you are doing and will continue to do for this country.
What industry leaders and members are saying about the Medical Fitness Network…
I have been in the Health and Fitness Industry for over 20 years. Through the years I have received numerous certifications and to this day continue to keep up to date on many health topics. Browsing the different health websites I came across Medical Fitness Network. After scanning and reading about this network, I knew I wanted to be part of the Network team to help and educate clients that are afraid to go to a gym and also clients that go to the gym but don’t see results. Everyone deserves the chance to live a healthier life.Denise Curry, Master Trainer, Independent, Health By Choice
Regarding the MFN webinar series: MFN knows how to organize a quality production. WAY TO GO! Very informative, professional, and well-organized. I am glad I could see first-hand some of the programming that you guys offer. Always great to know more about our colleagues and get some first-hand experience.Cynthia Chafin, M.Ed, MCHES, Women Survivors Alliance, Project Leader
I think for me personally, the biggest perk was that the content covered something for people with no knowledge of breast cancer as well as for those who do (I know something about breast cancer, but also the info. was great for those who did not). It also was very good about covering for fitness ‘pros’ vs. those who were less experienced (which in my case, is me because I have been out of it for a while professionally). It addressed audiences with varying levels of knowledge of breast cancer and fitness for breast cancer patients/clients. Outside of the content, I also liked the organization of it all, the frequent reminders, the ease of registration, all things that SEEM easy, but are not always the case with training of any type. I think you guys knocked it out of the park!!! For my professional role as it relates to WSA, it helped me to know that there are educated and well-trained fitness professionals out there who are specifically trained in breast cancer issues and seeing first-hand the level of depth that a MFN training offers to people. It would make me very confident to refer someone to a MFN provider using this one webinar as a measuring stick
I have had my profile displayed with the largest existing fitness association and my certifying organization for a number of years. I have never received any serious referrals from either site. Most of the prospects searching these sites are looking for trendy, athletic, or hacked fitness.David Bagby, Fitness Professional
In the first week of listing my profile on MFN, I have gotten two solid referrals within my market. Prospective clients who are looking for a higher standard of expertise and care, are turning to MFN, to locate a provider. I should have done this much sooner.
