At Renu we have a few missions we're passionate about.
One is to be the referral destination for medical professionals when their patients need a safe place to progress after Physical Therapy or when they need to improve their health while not causing further harm.
Second is to help adults healthy or with medical challenges achieve their best version of themselves turning back the clock. We often help prepare members for joint replacement surgeries improving the outcomes, radically diminishing recovery times and improving their pain tolerances many times not requiring heavy pain medication.
Our fitness professionals have their degrees in the field as well as one of the top 4 nationally accredited fitness credentials and deeper specializations.
Renu also believes in reaching the next generation with the launch of the Youth Conditioning and Sports Performance Program. Developing a strong foundation with appropriate challenges systematically preparing them for the sports, activities and life to come, instilling in them a healthy and positive experience with exercise at an early age.
With over 25 years of personal experience, 8 of those located in the Vanderbilt Orthopaedic Institute Renu has a unique history.
