I was wondering if anyone has developed a relationship with a physician, physical therapist, chiropractor, nutritionist, etc to receive direct referrals for clients? It seems line the logical next step for people who are being told they need to get into better physical shape by leading a more healthy lifestyle.
We get numerous referrals and we also refer client’s to appropriate health professionals (RDs, Physical Therapists, etc.) when needed. Hawaii Fitness Academy LLC specializes in working with post rehab, prehab, neurological issues, and corrective exercise/athletic performance. We also work with other fitness professionals providing them with consultations and continuing education to assist them in working with these types of clients. Our goal is to help expand the inclusion of more fitness professionals into the healthcare system. That is one of the reasons that I encourage all the fitness professionals we come into contact with, to join organizations like IDEA, ACE, ACSM, etc. These groups/organizations work on our behalf at the state, national, and international levels to advance our status and inclusion as professionals.
