Hillcrest Exercise & Lifestyles Program offers a special program called MedFit designed for individuals who have specials medical needs. This three-month program is specifically designed for people with chronic, lifestyle-related conditions (metabolic syndrome, prediabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, etc). Participants will have monthly one-on-one sessions with our exercise physiologist and dietitian to get started on a path to a healthier lifestyle. Members will also have access to our full-service Fitness Center.

The program starts with our exercise physiologist reviewing your risk factors, health habits and developing a personalized exercise plan to meet your needs. After your initial consultation, you will have a monthly appointment to monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed to your program. Our Fitness Specialists are available during your exercise sessions to provide guidance.

Knowing the important role dietary habits have in lifestyle-related chronic conditions, participants will also have monthly consultations with our dietitian. The first consultation involves reviewing your dietary habits, eating behaviors and developing a healthy eating plan. Monthly follow-up consultations will be used to find out what's working and develop action plans for areas needing improvement.

The cost is a $25 initial joining fee plus $50 per month. MedFit is limited to a three-month membership. At the end of this time you may transition to a regular membership or enjoy your improved health and continue improving on your own.

MedFit membership is by physician referral only, so please talk to your personal physician about your interest in this special program. For more information, call Hillcrest Exercise & Lifestyle Programs at 918.579.4959.
