The Ohio University Chillicothe Health & Wellness Center has recently partnered with Tivity Health to offer Prime® Fitness.

Prime Fitness is a commercial fitness program and is available to individuals in the 18 to 64 age group, inspiring participants to take charge of their own health and fitness, staying motivated and active. Prime Fitness is available to members of participating health plans and employer groups.

Prime gives members unlimited access to thousands of fitness locations across the country, now including the Health & Wellness Center at OHIO Chillicothe. Prime has something for everyone at all levels of ability.

“We are excited to offer the Prime Fitness to help improve the health and well-being of our members and the community,” said Jennifer Roy, Director, Health & Wellness Center.

Any increase in physical activity levels can improve overall health. According to federal physical activity guidelines, American adults should try to accumulate 2.5 hours per week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity, or 1.25 hours of vigorous activity. Physical activity can also mitigate health-related risks and improve the quality of life for those who already have chronic conditions.

To learn more about Prime® Fitness offerings, call the Health & Wellness Center at 740-774-7760 or visit http://www.tivityhealth.com/products/prime-fitness/.
