The Reh-Fit Centre has been recognized as Canada’s first and only certified medical fitness facility.
The Taylor Avenue health and fitness centre was certified by the Medical Fitness Association (MFA), which assures consumers that a facility has met the highest standards of quality and service and will offer them a safe and effective health and wellness experience.
“The MFA evaluators spent two days with us, reviewing our documentation addressing their 150 guidelines, walking around the Centre, and talking with people to make sure that our day-to-day operations matched what we documented,” said Sue Boreskie, CEO of the Reh-Fit Centre.
Distinguished certified medical fitness centres provide individualized health screening, inter-professional collaborative teams of certified professional staff, medical advisor for advice and guidance, disease management and prevention programs, and health-risk reduction and therapeutic lifestyle programs, among other key factors.
