Who We Are
Our story began in 1997 with an inspired idea to create a facility that offered health and fitness programs, specifically for women. The goal was to cultivate a safe, nurturing environment where women could meet, learn, grow and thrive while building healthy, lifelong friendships.
But Vital Steps is more than just a place. It’s a movement and an integral member of a family of companies dedicated to helping people live healthier, more vital lives, at home, work, and play. Quite simply, we want our clients to feel better and be stronger in mind, body, and spirit.
Over the last 20 years we’ve been privileged to work with many of the same people. We’ve seen babies born, children grow up and go to university, double-digit wedding anniversaries, and unfortunately, certain aches and pains settle in.
The need for specialized exercise programs for chronic disease prevention and management has grown dramatically, as evidenced by half of us reporting at least one chronic condition such as diabetes, arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis, or heart disease. That’s where MedFit Rehab comes in: providing customized medical exercise and nutrition prescriptions using condition-specific protocols and clinical best practices.
And when it comes to work, the realities of how it’s done, where, and for how long, have morphed into something entirely different from previous generations. But the core need remains: to be the best you can be so that you may realize the greatest success and satisfaction. Vital Management has expanded the definition of corporate wellness to better address its interrelated, holistic nature, as well as provide access to valuable business and financial strategy. Your ability to live a healthy life, such as by eating better and exercising, shouldn’t be blocked the moment you enter an office. But that’s what happens in most workplaces. In fact, we expect that our health will have to take a backseat to the “more important” tasks of the job.
As a close-knit family, Vital Steps, MedFit Rehab, and Vital Management are always striving to do better, to be better. We’re excited for the next 20 years! We look forward to a time when taking care of yourself is not seen as selfish, too expensive, or too time-consuming, but in fact, the smartest, healthiest, most necessary thing we must do.
