Members will benefit from commitment to health improvement and business
TORONTO, Jan. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Physiomed Group Inc., one of the largest
franchisee networks of paramedical health clinics across Canada, today
announced its acquisition of a number of locations of the Premier
Fitness chain of health clubs and the launch of its new Physiomed
The clubs purchased were mainly those locations where the new
owner/operator of the club, a healthcare professional in most cases,
had already been running a Physiomed clinic. With its newly acquired
clubs, most of which are located in Southern Ontario, now operating as
Physiomed Fitness locations, the company is looking forward to bringing
its dynamic, whole health model to its new members. "When the
opportunity came up for us to extend our clinic operations to the club
itself, it was an easy decision since we have been tenants in these
locations for over 15 years and we know that they are exceptional
facilities," Dr. Scott Wilson, Chairman and CEO of Physiomed.
"We're very excited about the opportunity we have to help change the way
that the Canadian health and fitness industry operates" says Dr.
Wilson. "With our model, everyone can now have an unparalleled level of
access to professional health and fitness support; the likes of which
was previously only available to the wealthiest Canadians at executive
Physiomed's new health and fitness model will be different from other
fitness clubs. Its use of owner/operators ensures a high degree of
accountability to its members. If members have any questions or
concerns, there is someone right there who is focused on making things
work for that member. The company's model also brings together the best
elements of traditional health and fitness centres. It includes
expansive and well-appointed facilities, a full range of equipment and
a variety of group fitness programs combined with a scientific approach
to health and fitness; originally developed through its
interdisciplinary health clinics that each have on staff a licensed
physiotherapist, chiropractor, kinesiologist, nutritionist and
registered massage therapist.
"We're focused on ensuring our members achieve their health and fitness
goals; whether that means losing weight, improving athletic
performance, recovering from an injury or managing a chronic or
metabolic condition," says Dr. Wilson. "That's why we employ trained
health professionals and a proprietary, comprehensive, individually
focused Health Assessment process."
"In addition to extending our owner/operator and whole health model,
we're also focused on client-centric business policies and best
practices," continued Dr. Wilson. "In the operation of our current
franchised Physiomed clinics, we have made it our mission to build a
reputation for integrity, fairness and outstanding customer service."
When asked what a new member can expect when they walk into Physiomed
Fitness, Dr. Wilson said: "Our goal is to show people that we're a
different kind of fitness club. In fact, we are so confident that we're
offering a 30-day free membership and Physiomed Health Assessment to
all prospective new members!"
Physiomed is one of Canada's largest and fastest growing franchisee
networks of healthcare clinics. Its founder, Dr. Scott Wilson, began
helping Canadians improve their health in 1994 and has since brought
together a team of hundreds of highly skilled healthcare professionals
from over a dozen disciplines. Physiomed is proud to have helped
improve the health and fitness of hundreds of thousands of Canadians.
