CORPORATE HISTORY & LEADERSHIP
MediFit traces its origins to 1988 when its founders, Vin DeProssino and Dr. Paul Couzelis merged their respective companies, Fitness Management Corp. and National Health Promotion Services, Inc. DeProssino and Couzelis contribute over 35 years experience in the health and wellness industry to the success of the company.
DeProssino received his BS in Health and Physical Education from City University of New York and pursued graduate studies in Exercise Physiology at Columbia University. DeProssino gained his early health and wellness experience working with the YMCA of Greater New York and AT&T. He founded Fitness Management Corp. in 1984.
Couzelis received his BS and MS from Springfield College and his PhD in exercise physiology from Kent State University. Prior to founding National Health Promotion Services, Inc. he accumulated over 20 years of experience with the YMCA.
In 1988 DeProssino and Couzelis merged their two companies with a provider of outpatient physical therapy services. The combined company was renamed MediFit of America. DeProssino and Couzelis led the successful buyout of MediFit of America’s worksite health and wellness business in 1994. They formed MediFit Corporate Services, Inc. to house the assets acquired from MediFit of America and have been successfully operating under that name ever since.
DeProssino and Couzelis continue to be active industry leaders. Both have shared their extensive knowledge of the fitness industry by participating on numerous industry committees and sitting on industry boards, including organizations such as The International Association for Worksite Health Promotion, Health Enhancement Research Organization, and Health Promotion Advocates, to name a few.
