The Medical Fitness Association recognized the ETMC Tyler
Olympic Center's Forward Motion program with a third place program
innovation award during their annual awards ceremony and conference
in New Orleans.
"We are very pleased to receive this honor from the Medical
Fitness Association," said Jeramie Hinojosa, ETMC Olympic Center
director. "It's very rewarding to be recognized by your peers in
the fitness industry."
Forward Motion is a unique exercise program specifically
designed to address the needs of patients recently discharged from
outpatient rehabilitation and ETMC Olympic Center membership
candidates who are not ready to begin an independent exercise
program. Forward Motion provides a safe exercise program while
introducing participants to the fitness environment in a
non-intimidating manner. All participants are guided through an
individualized exercise program that incorporates health and
fitness goals and addresses fitness deficiencies in strength,
endurance or flexibility. The ultimate goal of Forward Motion is to
help participants assume responsibility for their own exercise
program while under the guidance of a qualified fitness expert.
The MFA is a professional membership association and is the only
organization dedicated to the medical fitness difference and
integrated care as the prescription for better health.
The ETMC Olympic Centers are medically-supervised fitness and
health enhancement facilities serving Tyler and the East Texas
community. "We believe exercise is medicine and that it should be
an important part of everyone's healthcare plan," added Hinojosa.
"Our programs and services are delivered by a staff of credentialed
and/or certified specialists in health, fitness and rehabilitation.
Our staff will assist you with your fitness program, answer
questions and help you make a healthy change in your life."
ETMC has Olympic Centers in Tyler, Chandler, Lake Palestine,
Jacksonville, Hide-Away-Lake, Mineola, Rusk, Cedar Creek Lake,
Canton, Sulphur Springs and Pittsburg.
