The Medical Fitness Difference

The Medical Fitness Difference

An Approach That Sets UNC Wellness Apart

What if you belonged to a gym where you could find programming that took your medical needs into account? And where the trainers worked with you to address your health conditions and concerns?
As non-profit medical fitness facilities, UNC Wellness Centers support the Meadowmont and Northwest Cary communities with fitness programming guided by the methods and values of the UNC Health System and the Medical Fitness Association. We focus on fitness as disease prevention and as a way to improve the health and wellbeing of people of every age in our communities.

Medically Backed Programs and Services

Our personalized, comprehensive and medically integrated health education and fitness programs are developed and led by health and fitness professionals. They are available to UNC patients, wellness center members and the community.

Qualified and Cedentialed Staff

Our affiliation with UNC Health Care ensures an academic level of competence and expertise among our staff and faculty. Here, you’ll find a team that includes registered nurses, registered dietitians, licensed physical therapists, certified exercise physiologists, certified personal trainers and Red Cross WSI-certified swim instructors.

The Highest Standards for Safety and Cleanliness

We set and meet ambitious standards for safety. You can be confident that our facilities and equipment will always be clean, well-maintained and current with industry standards.
Explicitly designed as medical fitness facilities, each center was built for safety, and, as part of the UNC Health system, we must successfully contribute to the rigorous certification standards of The Joint Commission.
In addition, every staff member is certified in CPR, First Aid, and Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) located in each building. Our lifeguards are trained and certified in advanced water safety.
