Fitness and Wellness Programs for Patients

At FFC, we know everyone wants to learn to develop healthier eating habits and become more active. But how?

Over the past 10 years, FFC has been developing disease prevention programming in a clinical setting to work with patients dealing with obesity, diabetes, heart and kidney disease, and other health conditions.

We are uniquely positioned to deliver lifestyle modifications via our fitness and educational programs, covering everything from complimentary consultations to medical nutrition therapy, covered by most insurance.
