OUR Mission:  Build a Community of Health for Our Neighbors

Because physical and emotional health are paramount to our quality of life, and the success of our communities, we have embarked upon a journey to build a family of neighbors dedicated to bringing our community members a lifetime of health and wellness.  By doing this, we can inspire and motivate those who need our support. 

 

F.I.T. Health and Wellness is the vesicle to establish an active, healthy community.  Our service serves as the “roots” of a tree, enabling and encouraging many wonderful branches to grow.  Our focus is on improving the physical and mental health of our neighbors, bringing about a fundamental change to our community.  Unlike many of our current healthcare facilities, which are reactive to public health concerns, our health and wellness services have a proactive approach for holistic health, reducing the occurrence of disease and mortality rates.  Our services provide guidance pertaining to preventative care in the form of proper nutrition, stress reduction, and functional fitness.  We offer physical rehabilitation in the privacy of your own home for those who need our support, assisting our most vulnerable neighbors to help “heal” our community.
