We’re honored to have been recognized as Certified Medical Fitness Facility of the Year for 2018! This award presented by the MFA recognizes PWC as an exceptional facility that serves as a benchmark for the medical fitness community, composed of more than 40 certified centers nationally.

As the area’s only medically-integrated fitness and health center, Powell Wellness Center (PWC) offers FitScripts, medical programming that makes it possible for people of all ages and backgrounds to safely enhance their overall health, wellness, and physical fitness.

FitScripts—Prescribing Exercise as Medicine

PWC created FitScripts from the Exercise is Medicine® program, an initiative of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Medical Association (AMA). It is a physician-referral program designed for those who need to exercise but who may have a chronic condition or physical limitation such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, pulmonary disease, or orthopedic concern that is preventing them from regular exercise.

Through FitScripts, physicians prescribe exercise by referring patients to PWC for an eight-week program of supervised sessions in a small group setting. Specialized pool and gym classes in our FitScripts program address:

    • Cancer
    • Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab Phase III
    • Diabetes/Hypertension
    • General/weight loss
    • Kids (10-14 years old)
    • Orthopedic
    • Parkinson’s
    • Pre/Postnatal
    • Pulmonary
