Tampa YMCA Offers New Program for Arthritis Patients

TAMPA, FL – The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA is proud to offer the community a new program proven to help those with arthritis. Thanks to a generous grant from the Cigna Foundation, the Tampa YMCA offers Enhance®Fitness at the South Tampa, Campo and East Pasco Family YMCAs.

EnhanceFitness is a proven community-based senior fitness and arthritis management program. It helps older adults become more active, energized and empowered for independent living. The national evidence-based physical activity program is deemed particularly safe and effective for older adults living with arthritis by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control.

Arthritis crippled Marcia Alexander so much that she found herself crawling over to a chair or couch to help her stand up. That’s until she started EnhanceFitness. “I come home energized and excited. In only three weeks I was able to get up off the floor without help,” testifies Marcia. Marcia also sees the added benefits in her everyday life. “Walking is easier. My posture, balance and confidence have also improved,” shares Marcia.

EnhanceFitness participants meet three times a week for an hour, where they experience aerobic workouts, strength training, stretching and balance work. The wide variety of movement keeps members, like Marcia, engaged. “I have never been fond of exercise, but thanks to the instructors, this class is fun and I look forward to it,” says Marcia.

The next EnhanceFitness session starts August 28th and runs for 16 weeks. It’s free for YMCA Everywhere members, $40 for Here members and $48 for non-members. For more information, contact Dawn.Kita@tampaymca.org or stop by one of the participating Ys.
