A Healthier U

Proactive Health Services

A new addition to the Drexel Recreation Center targets the health needs of the Drexel Community!

Proactive Health is a Wellness Service model created by A Healthier U within the Drexel Recreation Center; this model provides customized strategies for individuals to enhance health and optimize performance. Increasing physical activity, improving nutritional habits and reducing stress have been identified as methods to reduce health risks and meet the demands of our Drexel population.

Proactive Health will meet these needs by providing Exercise Programs, Nutrition Prescriptions and Therapeutic Massage services; these components will be seamlessly integrated by a team of specialists. This new model will highlight the complementary value of integrating these health and exercise therapies.

Proactive Health is strategically located on the first floor of the Recreation Center in a newly-constructed space to allow easy access and convenience. In addition to brand new exercise equipment, private studio spaces have been constructed to allow clients private one-on-one appointments with a specialist. A newly-formed service staff with experience in personal training, corrective exercise, and massage therapy will complement the services offered by Registered Dieticians and faculty from the College of Nursing and Health Professions.

“We know that many people feel intimidated in an environment where they feel they are on display. And many simply don’t know how to begin an exercise or nutrition program. This unique model will offer custom health, fitness and nutrition programming in a private setting. It’s a wonderful opportunity for those in the Drexel community to take action and achieve better health. I am confident that those who participate will realize the value of these services through increased energy, stress reduction, and weight management.”
