People who have chronic health conditions often think exercise can make their symptoms worse. In fact, research shows that exercise actually boosts a person’s energy levels, improves symptoms and sometimes even reverses the course of disease.
I’m Matt Carlen, Vice President of health and wellness for Centegra Health System.
To promote community health and to prevent admissions and re-admissions to the hospital, Centegra now offers the Centegra WellBridge program. Patients who have a physician or clinician referral receive a low-cost 60-day membership to Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Centers.
The membership provides the patient and a support person full classic membership benefits, weekly WellBridge classes, a free fitness Bridge Assessment and a designated and supervised fitness area. Participants receive a fitness evaluation, discounted nutrition and wellness coaching services, plus a zero enrollment offer to join as a continued member.
Ask your physician about the Centegra WellBridge program. To find a physician near you, call 877-CENTEGRA.
