Safe Start Exercise Program

Safe Start is a healthcare provider-referred exercise program for those who may have special health needs or simply want to jumpstart healthy habits. This program is offered at our Fitness Center at University Hospitals Brunner Sanden Deitrick Wellness Center in Mentor. In Safe Start, participants will work towards their goals with the support of healthcare providers and fitness experts.

Referred patients will participate in this guided program in person at the fitness center. You'll start by completing a fitness consultation and participating in either structured exercise programs in a group setting or exercising independently outside of the group if preferred. Healthy lifestyle changes can be difficult, and training in a group setting can build a great community for support. You'll have full access to fitness center equipment, amenities, pools and programs during all hours of operation throughout your 60-days.
