Physical activity has many proven health benefits, including a significant decrease in the risk of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes or heart disease.1 Health club membership is associated with significantly increased aerobic and resistance physical activity levels and more favorable cardiovascular health outcomes compared to non-members.2 Staying active also has financial benefits – inactive adults spend $1,437 more per capita (29.9% higher costs) in annual healthcare expenditures compared with active adults. (Carlson SA, Fulton JE, Pratt M, Yang Z, Adams EK. Inadequate physical activity and health care expenditures in the United States. Prog Cardiovasc Dis. 2015 Jan-Feb;57(4):315-23).
This program is available to provide seniors with opportunities and resources to improve their overall health so that they can live their best lives.
