The Clinical* membership provides a higher level of individualized service for a minimal increase in cost. These services can be extremely helpful for you if you are managing chronic disease or have specific health concerns. As a Clinical member you are assigned to an Exercise Physiologist, called a Lifestyle Counselor, who reviews your medical history, listens to your needs and concerns, works with you to develop short-term and long-term wellness goals, and then provides a detailed exercise prescription to get you started. Clinical memberships can also include blood pressure readings, heart rate checks, oxygen levels, and other important vitals pre, during and post-exercise. If you are a Duke patient, this information will be electronically loaded in your medical chart.
