Medical-Referral Program Successes. Part 5

FitConsult International
FitConsult International Inc., located in Durango, Colo., is a private training facility that offers supervised training to medical referrals. Frank Frestinsky, owner of FitConsult International, originally founded the Medical Fitness program in Zurich, Switzerland, which became successful enough to bring to the U.S. in 1997.

As with Prager and Palmieri, Frestinsky found soliciting his services over the phone to physicians to be time-consuming and difficult, and he discovered that word-of-mouth advertising was more effective, especially in a small community such as Durango. Frestinsky takes advantage of various social events to inform the medical community about his studio’s services, including hosting his own open house party to allow physicians to see his facility firsthand.

When physicians do send referrals to FitConsult, Frestinsky sends them appreciation notes, and ensures that they are kept up-to-date on the patient’s progress. He has found that, if he maintains constant communication with the physicians and provides professional services, he is able to generate valuable word-of-mouth advertising and develop strong marketing relationships.

FitConsult specializes in training medical referrals, as well as the at-risk and deconditioned populations, and offers clients two types of training packages: one-on-one training and group supervised training. All clients must provide their medical histories and must be cleared by their physicians before training begins. Clients who are first referred by their physicians receive one-on-one supervised training for two months to learn the proper fitness and breathing techniques, and then they are graduated into group supervised training.

FitConsult has about 45 clients in its group-training program, and 50 clients in its one-on-one personal training program. It has become so successful that it will be moving from its current 1,800-square-foot facility into a 4,500-square-foot facility. Frestinksy’s goal is to empower clients with the ability to work out without supervision, and help the medical community manage their health care.
