Medically Referred Exercise (MRE) Program
Physical activity has been proven through research to not only prevent disease, but to treat many chronic illnesses. In essence, exercise can be used as a type of medicine—one with no side effects. Exercise recommendations can be met through 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity. These recommendations have been shown to substantially improve your overall health.
If your doctor believes you need exercise to help with a variety of health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or obesity, we have an exercise program at Community Healthplex Sports Club that can help you. The Exercise is Medicine™ initiative was launched by the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Medical Association to encourage physicians to prescribe exercise for their patients. Through this initiative, our Medically Referred Exercise Program was created to help improve the lives of individuals who need medical supervision to begin an exercise program. Learn more about MRE in this video.
You can join the MRE program with a prescription from your physician, even if you are not currently a member of our club. Through this program, you can receive full access to our facility and programs, and a consultation with one of our degreed fitness professionals. We have seen many individuals improve their health through our MRE Program. Positive changes from those who have gone through this program have included weight loss, improved health, reduction in medications, and improved fitness levels.
By staying active, especially as you age, you can decrease your risk for many illnesses, and help maintain your quality of life. For more information about the Medically Referred Exercise Program, please contact Lauren Campbell, Wellness Manager, at 317-920-7472.
