Beacon Health & Fitness Granger receives national Medical Fitness award

Beacon Health & Fitness Granger has been named the 2022 Medical Fitness Association Certified Facility of the Year. This prestigious award is presented annually to a certified medical fitness facility that serves as an industry benchmark by developing programs, achieving results and adhering to the highest standards.

“Being one of just about 50 clubs worldwide that are MFA-certified already sets our Granger fitness center apart, and to be identified from that select group as the facility of the year is really meaningful to us,” said Alan Loyd, Executive Director, Beacon Health & Fitness. “We’ve had the opportunity to learn and implement so much from our involvement with the MFA and our colleagues around the country.”

Being a certified medical fitness facility has played an important role in the accomplishments at Beacon Health & Fitness Granger, including its array of full-service fitness programs, membership retention rates, quality of service and integrated fitness and medical services.

The Granger fitness center also hosts community health forums on a wide range of topics throughout the year.

In 2020, Beacon Health & Fitness Granger received recognition from the Medical Fitness Association for Most Innovative Program. The Beacon Best Medicine Program is a series of classes designed to improve the quality of life for people who have been diagnosed with a life-altering condition, including those with Parkinson’s disease, cancer, arthritis, cardiac and neurological conditions.

Beacon Health & Fitness, which also operates facilities in South Bend, Elkhart and Three Rivers, has been listed as one of the Top 100 Clubs in the nation by Club Industry since 2018.

“Our goal from day one has been to set a standard of excellence and quality at Beacon Health & Fitness Granger that is recognized nationally,” said Sarah Strefling, Director, Beacon Health & Fitness Granger. “I’m so proud of our associates who have worked so hard to make this a special place, and our team is grateful to our members who have been with us on this incredible journey.”
