Medical Exercise Academy (MDX Academy)

Start Today

MDX Academy is a training platform for trainers to learn about the benefits of and possibilities with medical exercise. Keep up-to-date with the MDX Academy by subscribing to our newsletter below.

MDX Academy is the training platform of NOVA Medical Exercise, with the end goal of connecting education, medicine, and fitness. Although it started out as a single training program for fitness professionals who wanted to learn more about Medical Exercise and its effect on chronic disease (check out our Clinical Exercise Specialist [CES] program), after some brainstorming with friends, clients, students, and other health and fitness professionals, it grew into a means to distribute our decades of experience and education in exercise science and self-defense.

In addition to the CES, MDX Academy also offers in-person fitness and self-defense programs for individuals, corporations, community groups, gyms and fitness facilities, and any other fitness and health professional who wants to take their own business to a new level. Contact us today for more information on our live training programs for your organization or business.

Because we are 100% dedicated to interprofessional education as a means to alleviate the burden on the health care system, we want to lead in the creation of a collaborative, practice-ready workforce by coordinating health care strategies and optimizing the strengths of each team member.
