Medical Exercise Training

Do you have Low Back Pain?

The Center for Health & Fitness (CHF) is bridging healthcare and fitness by offering Medical Exercise Training (MET) classes for those with a chronic condition who seeks guidance from a medical exercise specialist.

The MET program, created by Mike Jones, DPT is a six-week program focusing on low back pain.
