METI is Celebrating 29 Years of "Bridging the Gap"

 

The Medical Exercise Training Institute (METI) is 29 years old!! Yes, we started the medical exercise/post-rehab movement with the Medical Exercise Specialist workshop and certification in 1994. 13 students attended that first course. Since we have trained Medical Exercise Specialists on six continents around the world. 

We watched post-rehab fitness grow into medical exercise training and witnessed the birth of our new profession. We owe all of our success to the amazing Medical Exercise Specialists (MES), Post Rehab Conditioning Specialists (PRCS), and Medical Exercise Program Directors (MEPD) we met along this 29-year journey.

You proved medical exercise training WORKS!!
