FirstHealth Centers for Health & Fitness
Exercise is Medicine

What if there was one medicine so powerful in maintaining and improving health that it could prevent or treat dozens of diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and obesity? There is!

Exercise can treat and prevent many diseases.  Your doctor feels that exercise is so important for your health that he or she may prescribe it during your visit, just as medication or tests might be prescribed.

As a participant in Exercise is Medicine you will meet with an exercise technologist for an initial fitness assessment, goal development, and exercise prescription.  You will also receive a 2-week pass to the Center for Health & Fitness to experience new forms of exercise and work with our professionals.  We'll report your participation and progress to your doctor and complete a reassessment after 3-6 months. 

Your Exercise is Medicine prescription is FREE.  There are no charges for your visit with the exercise technologist, and your insurance will not be billed.

Talk to your doctor about a prescription to the Exercise is Medicine program at the FirstHealth Center for Health & Fitness - Pinehurst and make physical activity part of your life and health care plan.
