Parrish Healthcare Celebrates One Year Anniversary of Next Steps

TITUSVILLE, FLA. (Feb. 1, 2019)— Parrish Healthcare is celebrating the one year anniversary of the Next Steps™ program with Parrish Health and Fitness Center. Next Steps™ is a specialized, eight-week fitness program helping people achieve their health and wellness goals while working to support any medical conditions they may have.

The program serves patients throughout Parrish Healthcare. Your primary care physician, specialist, or another healthcare professional in the hospital may refer you to the Next Steps™ program to manage and improve your medical condition or to help you achieve a more active lifestyle.

Once approved with your medical insurance, you may be qualified to enroll in the program for free. You’ll undergo a health assessment in order to have fitness experts design your unique plan based on your goals.

The eight-week course includes a pre-assessment and two, 60-minute supervised group workout sessions per week. When you complete the program you will complete the post assessment to determine results and a summary report is available for you and your referring healthcare provider.

Parrish Health and Fitness Center will work with your healthcare provider to create a plan moving forward. The best option may be to implement the new skills you learned at home, or embark on a second session with Next Steps™.

“I have seen how this program has impacted many different people and changed their lives. Some participants have lost weight and regained confidences, while others have improved their stamina and energy to continue doing activities they love, like fishing and golf,” said Tammy Shelley, fitness manager at Parrish Health and Fitness Center. “It important to me that we work with their referring healthcare provider to accomplish their goals no matter what medical condition they may be struggling with.”

Luis, a Next Steps™ graduate from Titusville said, “Next Steps™ has positively impacted my health. I was able to improve my stamina after my cardio surgery to continue my everyday tasks.”

Luis was also eager to comment on the trainers at Parrish Health and Fitness Center. He added, “This program has been excellent. My plan was managed and maintained in all aspects as I progressed throughout the program. My trainers were outstanding and made the process even more enjoyable.”
