Exercise Is Medicine: FITNESS Professionals
Exercise is Medicine SA was created 4 years ago under the global banner of the American College of Sports Medicine initiative.
Exercise is Medicine SA (EIM SA) has a threefold focus:
The primary focus is to educate and empower all providers linked to health and wellness to understand the benefits of regular exercise in the prevention and management of a broad spectrum of diseases, and to give them the means to prescribe it or refer to the appropriate healthcare or fitness professional. One of the main aims of EIM over the world is to get healthcare providers to monitor exercise habits, similar to recording vital signs in all patients. Wherever this has been introduced into healthcare systems, it has already had profound effects on health promotion and cost!
