The MFN was founded in 2013 by two sports medicine doctors and a fitness trainer to create a directory of fitness professionals & facilities to serve the demands of our rapidly aging country.  The MFN donates its services to medical & health organizations who do not offer resources to find fitness & allied healthcare professionals.  In 2016 the MFN was acknowledged by the White House for Champions of Change for its work.
