Imagine How Many More People Would Join Your Clubif you had your own Qualified Doctor to help them…
This the Medi-Fit Programme ...
People are 40 times more likely to ask a Doctor for advice on exercise than a Personal Trainer
This is NOT an exercise referral scheme
Everyone knows that when they have reached a level of ill health they would benefit greatly from following an exercise programme. They just don’t know where to go to get the right advice because of their health issues.
A recent research paper proved that People are 40 times more likely to ask a Doctor for advice on exercise than a Personal Trainer.
So that’s straight forward then...send them to there GP and they will recommend a programme . But you know how increasingly difficult and drawn out a process it is to get an appointment to see your GP.
And if you are lucky enough to see your GP... will you get the right advice you were hoping for?
In a recent Scottish study of GP practices it was found that ONLY 5% of GPs ASK about there patients exercise history during a consultation
WHY do you think the statistics are so LOW?Aren’t they trained at Medical school about the benefits of exercise. Aren’t Doctors advocates of the “Exercise is medicine” school of thought????
Err ....NO ! Not at all .In fact its a shocking and little known fact that Sports & Exercise Medicine is NOT EVEN ON the curriculum for NEW Doctor training in the UK or even the USA !!!
Imagine the community benefits and yes , the commercial advantage of your club having its own Medical DIRECTOR – a qualified Sports and Exercise Medicine trained Doctor who screens your members and DEALS DIRECTLY with the ones who have a positive risk factor.
NO MORE referring potential customers away to their GP for a letter of authorisation never to be seen again.
Customers hunt your club down BECAUSE you are the only Club in their area where they will get medically supervised exercise prescription! Within the cost of membership ! Is got to make sense on any level you care to think about :
• Community Engagement
• Social responsibility
• Practical Heath initiative
• Gives your Club a USP in a crowded market
• Makes you money through increased sales
• Establishes you as an “Authority “ and “ Enhances “your reputation as a Professional Club

How The Programme Works
The Medical Screen
Customers will be screened at the point of sale using a version of the Canadian Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) Customers will be enrolled in the Club membership as you do now
Automatic Alerts to the Doctor
The PAR - Q will be scanned and loaded onto the Momentum CRM system we provide to monitor the progress of the new customer and to provide a reference point for all stakeholders of the programme. In the event that any risk factors are identified on the screening form, the members’ record will be registered as having a POSITIVE PAR -Q result and the Medical practitioner will be notified automatically by the system that the customer requires a consultation. As a club you don’t have to do anything other than load the system with the Par q It all happens using the magic of the web and the technology!
Automatic notification to the fitness team and voila!
The Doctor receives automatic notification from the system and can LOOK in to the CRm system and see all of the contact details of the member and there PAR Q results. The Doctor then will carry out the telephone consultation and the next action will be one or more of the following:
A note will be made on the system as to what the customer can or cannot do in the exercise programme for the information of the fitness professionals setting the customer programme.
To set up a further face to face consultation in the Centre to get further information before proceeding with exercise prescription as in point1 above
To reject the individual as unsuitable for exercise and to make note of that on the system. The customer will then receive a refund of any programme payments made.
The customer will then receive a refund of any programme payments made. Once the consultation has taken place an automated email alerts the fitness team that the Client is ready to have their induction and the Doctors recommendations are ready for the fitness team to view. Finally the Doctor sends an email to the member with a copy letter for the members own GP to make them aware of the intervention.
Its seamless, automatic and requires NO EXPERTISE on behalf of the Club or fitness team !
It takes about 4 weeks to set up a programme We can supply you with ready to go Promotional Support packs ( covering both online and offline campaigns and PR pieces for your local media.
It really is the easiest to introduce programme we have seen as well as one of the most immediate profit generating.
