Date:1/11/2010

Free fitness classes geared specifically to older adults in the Rio Grande Valley, Corpus Christi and Austin, Texas areas.

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) January 11, 2010 -- Physicians Health Choice -- a Medicare Advantage organization that emphasizes pro-active, preventative care by providing more choices and benefits than original Medicare -- is pleased to announce it is partnering with Silver Life Fitness to offer free fitness classes geared specifically to older adults in the Rio Grande Valley, Corpus Christi and Austin, Texas. (The Rio Grande Valley area includes the major cities of McAllen, Brownsville and Harlingen.)

Members of Physicians Health Choice can now enjoy several fitness classes at multiple senior centers in the Austin, Corpus Christi and Rio Grande Valley areas as a free benefit. The program is designed to make fitness fun and build friendships while developing cardiovascular/muscular strength, endurance and flexibility. Participants can enjoy:
•   low impact exercise classes
•   Zumba Gold classes: a fusion of hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves that equal a fun, dynamic fitness program that has become one of the nation's most popular fitness endeavors
•   use of exercise equipment with certified instructors that specialize in fitness programs for older adults
•   periodic social events

Getting out, getting some exercise and socializing is as important for your health as seeing the doctor," states Dr. George M. Rapier III, founder and CEO of Physicians Health Choice. We know many seniors are reluctant to go to a gym; so we ensure a welcoming environment and encourage any level of participation."

We all know the benefits to exercising regularly; what these people are surprised to learn is their newfound friendships through this program. For some, this is their only social outlet with other like-minded adults," states Letty Vazquez, director of Fitness Programs for WellMed Medical Management, the parent company of Physicians Health Choice.

Silver Life Fitness is a progressive fitness and educational program tailored to active older adults. Offered free of charge to Physicians Health Choice members, this program is dedicated to improving the quality of life by providing a total wellness approach geared to healthy living.

In addition, certain locations may offer exercise equipment and other group activities.
