Medical Fitness

Weight loss is an important goal, but so are other aspects of good health.

What’s the difference between an ordinary gym or fitness center and a medical fitness center? Why is a medical fitness center a better fit for some people? Here are some things that you should know about medical fitness centers.

Fitness vs Wellness

The biggest difference between a medical fitness center and another type of gym or fitness facility is that the medical fitness center focuses on overall wellness instead of just fitness. It is possible to be physically fit, or working toward physical fitness, and still experience ill health. The purpose of a medical fitness center is to help clients lose weight or gain muscle, and also to help them manage their health. Medical fitness centers use science and experience working with clients with medical histories. Clients are overseen by medical professionals as they work toward their fitness goals. These professionals can help ensure that their clients are meeting those goals in a safe and effective manner. Our very own C4 Performance Training is an example of a medical fitness facility. With our physical therapist and exercise scientists and coaches, we can help our clients achieve an active and healthy lifestyle.

Lifestyle factors, like proper diet, can contribute to overall fitness.

Vital component of our medical fitness center is our focus on lifestyle factors as well as exercise. At C4 medical fitness center, our clients receive input on lifestyle changes beyond just exercising. Dietary changes, stress relief methods, and preventatives and alternatives such as supplementation are all important focus points at C4.

In addition to employing our own medical health professionals, our staff at C4 communicates with our client’s primary care physician in order to ensure continuity of care. This means that everyone responsible for the client’s health and well-being will be on the same page.
