Exercise is Medicine

TriHealth Fitness & Health Pavilion has joined a global initiative called Exercise is Medicine, that promotes exercise as one of the most powerful medical interventions available. For more information, contact Karen Sims at 513 246 2622

To encourage the community to get moving, the Pavilion is waiving its enrollment fee* for any individual who submits a prescription from their physician that references a medical condition that could be benefit with exercise, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, weight issues, etc.  *Just a  one-time nominal processing fee is required to get started.

If you'd like to give the Exercise is Medicine program a try, print out this prescription form (PDF) to take to your physician, then call 513 246 2622 for an initial appointment with us.

TriHealth Healthy Back Program

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Fortunately, you can take active measures to learn ways to relieve most back pain.

The Pavilion’s program will last 12 weeks (2 days per week, one hour each) and sessions will include an educational component and varied exercise sessions. This outcomes-driven program was designed by an integrated team of TriHealth Physicians, Physical Therapists, Certified Athletic Trainers and Degreed and Certified Fitness Coaches to assist those completing therapy for acute or chronic back pain or those wishing to address chronic low back issues. A physician or physical therapist referral is required for participation.

Classes will run two evenings per week.

Please call Karen Sims at 513 246 2622 or email Karen_Sims2@trihealth.com to sign up and receive additional information about this new Medical Exercise Program.

Members $249, nonmembers $349 (includes three month facility membership)
