David Barlow is a senior leader who has held executive positions at Iron Mountain and Health Dialog. He has led large teams of clinical professionals delivering health coaching, shared decision making and other total population health services. Most recently, he took an ownership position in the RehabGYM in Vermont where he brings his coaching leadership experience into a business founded on a truly innovative model of integrated patient care and population wellness. RehabGYM membership programs and classes are designed for the total population. Staff welcome and value the fit and healthy as much as those who are struggling with injuries or chronic health concerns. For the fit members, the main goal is to enable and maintain peak performance through safe and effective methods of exercise, diet and good mental health. For those with past or present injuries, staff members design programs that get individuals back into doing what they love while decreasing the possibility of re-injury through increasing centeredness, functional movement and strength. Members who are faced with chronic conditions are coached through every step of their journey to better health. Nutrition, mental health and safe/effective exercise are a part of every program design.
The United States is losing the battle against chronic disease, and the way that health clubs have operated is not helping. A change in the way health clubs are operated could go a long way to helping fight this battle.
