Winnipeg Hospital Opens China's First Medical Fitness Facility

Posted October 16, 2015 in News, Blog

The September / October 2015 edition of Fitness Business Canada featured an article on the first Chinese medical fitness center opening in Rizhao China. Winnipeg's Seven Oaks General Hospital led the consulting and development of this 80,000 square foot facility built in one of the buildings from the 2008 Olympics. 

What's important is that the Pro Fitness Program has been the leader since 1998 in a prescriptive, results based approach to fitness. Our recent work with Dr. James Manson from the Cleveland Clinic to develop our new assessment software centered on health related normative data is a further step in our efforts to bridge the medical fitness gap. We are banking our future on this vision and will continue to equip independent fitness clubs with the tools and core values to deliver real long term fitness results through an intelligent assessment and program prescription. Read the complete article below.

Pro Fitness Member Web Site Updated

Posted June 09, 2015 in News, Blog

We are currently in the process of adding Normative Data charts to our Pro Fitness Member web site. Members will now be able to take their assessment printouts or screenshots that they receive during their ongoing fitness consultations and go back to the profitnessmember.com web site to see how they compared to national standards in their age group. 

We highly recommend that members of our fitness facilities invest in the annual consultation program to receive comparative data every 90 days. Having one assessment without anything to compare to accomplishes very little in terms of improvement and motivation. There is no pass or fail with an initial fitness consultation and it simply provides a benchmark to gauge progress and improvement. What gets measured gets managed and leads to success, so don't underestimate the importance of regular checkups regardless of your level of fitness or experience.

All members of our Pro Fitness clubs should be receiving a 4 page printout of their assessment results with a 4 visit chart and breakdown including bar graphs to show how they rate in terms of health norms. Clients have the option of having the data emailed to them as well.
