Medical Exercise Training

Medical Exercise Training

The Center for Health & Fitness (CHF) is bridging healthcare and fitness by offering Medical Exercise Training (MET) classes for those with a chronic condition who seek guidance from a medical exercise specialist.

The MET program, created by Mike Jones, DPT is a six-week program focusing on a variety of topics such as diabetes/hypertension, arthritis/joint replacement, low back pain and women's fitness.
