Thanks to Dr. Jones and the AAHFRP!
Thanks to Dr. Mike Jones for another great MES workshop at FocusNYC last weekend!
Here at Focus, we require our trainers to obtain the AAHFRP Medical Exercise Specialist certification within their first year of employment, and we host Dr. Jones for the onsite workshop twice per year at our facility in Chelsea.
The MES program, onsite workshop and ongoing support from Dr. Jones and the AAHFRP have all been enormously helpful for our trainers’ success with post-rehab clients – including those with total hip and knee replacements, back and shoulder pain, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The personal attention, answers to questions and feedback you receive throughout the program are truly unrivaled, and having both the knowledge and progressive, detailed yet flexible protocols based on Dr. Jones’ years of successful experience as a practicing physical therapist really allows our personal trainers to better manage medical conditions while helping clients safely attain their larger fitness goals.
The MES program has a long-standing track record of success in the field and has become the gold standard for bridging the gap between fitness and rehab. Some our own trainers have even gone on to pursue physical therapy themselves – including Chris Kelly and Ryan Chow (pictured above).
Thank you Dr. Jones and the AAHFRP for your hard work and efforts over the years, and for making the Medical Exercise Program available to personal trainers!
