Residents and Employees to Benefit from Innovative Program

SEATTLE, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- AegisLiving, a premier senior living company, announces it is partnering with Technogym USA to bring the finest fitness equipment to its residents. Under the new partnership Technogym, The Wellness Company is the official fitness equipment supplier for Aegis Signature Living communities. AegisLiving's new brand of retirement living communities are comparable to five-star hotels. The partnership unites the two companies, both innovators in their individual industries, with a common goal -- to enhance and enrich the health and well-being of seniors.

By partnering with Technogym, Aegis will provide its residents with a wellness center equipped with innovative fitness tools designed specifically to enhance the livelihoods of seniors. Technogym's fitness equipment will first be installed at AegisLiving's newest senior community opening this May at Varenna in Santa Rosa, California.

We are thrilled to be bringing the most innovative health and wellness services on the market to meet our residents unique needs," said Dwayne Clark, founder and CEO of AegisLiving.

As we age, the benefits of exercise are more important than ever. Research is emerging that proves people of all ages and physical conditions benefit from exercise and physical activity. Staying physically active can help prevent or delay many diseases and disabilities and can improve the health of seniors who are frail or have age accompanying diseases. Studies have shown that older adults hurt their health far more by not exercising than by exercising. An inactive lifestyle can cause seniors to lose ground in four important areas necessary for staying healthy: strength, balance, flexibility and endurance. Not only can they help increase their quality of life and life expectancy, new research suggests that regular physical activity and a consistent exercise program can reduce their risk of developing age-related dementia.

Robb McGuffin, Business Developer for Technogym USA explains, "AegisLiving understands the value and potential to provide an environment that promotes the principles of successful aging at their communities. Technogym's foundation of wellness is centered on exercise, healthy lifestyle habits and a positive approach to life. Providing these services and utilizing Technogym's capabilities will be a great asset to AegisLiving. They clearly understand the value of first class hospitality and combining that vision with a wellness mission makes them a defining leader in the industry and the perfect partner for Technogym."

Technogym's Total Wellness Solution, consists of integrated equipment, programs, workout management systems and customized services tailored to respond to each individual's need. They were chosen to partner with AegisLiving because of their exclusive Wellness System, which is designed to enhance quality of life of its users, specifically seniors.
