Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) – Patti Glass joins John Thomas on Tuesday's 3 News First Edition to talk about a program designed to help seniors with diabetes stay fit.

Healthway Silver Sneakers Fitness is a national company which helps seniors with diabetes stay in shape. Glass says studies show that seniors who work out over a one year period have proven to have less hospital visits and reduced medication requirements.

Locally the Healthway Silver Sneakers Fitness Company is contracted with Humana Medicare Advantage plan AARP to provide this service to their members. In this area the free fitness center membership is offered at 10 full service locations, 6 curves, and a Snap Fitness.

The membership not only provides the muscular strength and range of movement program provided by Healthway Silver Sneakers Fitness, but also offers the basic membership privileges of that fitness center offering the free membership.
