The UF Health Medical Fitness Program was established in 2006 at the UF Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute, as part of UF Health Rehabilitation Services. As a patient-supported service, the program provides medically based fitness and wellness programs aimed to help participants achieve a healthy and fit lifestyle. Participants include those who have completed physical therapy, have an ongoing medical condition or have been referred by their physicians to begin a medically supervised fitness and wellness program. In 2011, the program moved to the UF Health Fitness and Wellness Center, located in the south campus parking garage.
