Medically Referred Exercise Program
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 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 (MRE) was created to help improve the lives of individuals who need medical supervision to begin an exercise program.
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.
Body Composition Measurements
Body Composition Analyzer by seca
The Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) by seca is the first and only body composition analyzer designed for medical use. It offers a quick and easy assessment of fat mass, body water and skeletal muscle mass. Medically-precise measurements are presented in easy-to-understand graphics and validated against gold standards.
The mBCA scan is available to Healthplex members for only $10. Call today to schedule!
Body composition measurements with the DXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) can look beyond the traditional body mass index (BMI) to determine fat distribution. In addition to assessing your risk for a variety of diseases, body composition measurements can assist athletes in making decisions on the training regimens they can use to achieve their best performance. Body composition reports include total body tissue, % fat and % lean, waist to hip ratio, resting metabolic rate, fat distribution, and tissue mapping.
Cost: $75 per test
