“I really want to become a certified MES, but don’t have the time and the resources to commit to a $1,595 lump-sum, 2-day on-site seminar that requires travel to another city, lodging, and other accommodations.” If you’ve uttered these words, the Medical Exercise Specialist Study Group (MES Study Group) is for you! The Medical Exercise Training Institute (METI) listened to you and designed a certification program with the busy and cost-conscious fitness professional in mind.
