On Wednesday, Oct. 9, health club operators are invited to attend six sessions specific to their concerns in healthcare integration at their clubs. Two of the sessions are case studies from club operators already integrating healthcare in their facilities sharing their success and challenges. Two of the sessions focus on technology’s role and concerns related to medical integration. One session explores how functional food can help members live a healthier life and mitigate disease states. The last session shares how to motivate people to engage in a healthy lifestyle.
This is the perfect day for health club owners, senior executives and mid-level staff to discover ways to transform their businesses so they offer more effective programs and more financially rewarding returns. We recommend that you also attend the Healthcare & Fitness Integration SUMMIT on Oct. 10-11 to hear about the issues the medical community is facing and how you can work with that community.
Wednesday, Oct. 9 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Successful models of building the continuum of care between the condition-specific protocols delivered by medical providers and the general well-being of an employee population are finally starting to materialize. In this session, we will transcend the hypothetical and instead examine what is actually working in practice through case studies. The focus will examine how Active Wellness is using technology to drive programming that is referred in by physicians. This includes P.R.E.P., condition-specific like DPP, and general lifestyle interventions.

Although the health benefits of regular exercise are well-known, for most people, motivating oneself to complete scheduled workouts remains a major challenge. As more healthcare professionals are encouragingactive lifestyles, it’s important to identify the most effective
approaches that build value for regular physical activity. Research indicates that the immediate, mood-enhancing benefits of exercise have greater motivating potential than knowledge of future health benefits. Effective strategies that increase exercise participation are crucial to
address our growing healthcare costs, especially because two major demographic shifts are taking place worldwide - average fitness levels are decreasing and population aging is increasing. This presentation covers the latest research on the strategies for exercise motivation
and adherence to an active lifestyle.
