Preferred Fitness with Unlimited Access & Unlimited Possibilities

As one of Florida Health Care Plans’ (FHCP) most popular benefits options, the Preferred Fitness Program offers members and their dependents unlimited access to more than 80 fitness facilities and gyms, including select YMCAs. The best part is that members can visit as many fitness facilities as often as they like! This wide variety of options will help you find a fitness facility that most closely matches your goals and preferences.

Why Is Exercise So Important for My Health & Happiness?

Benefits of regular physical activity are numerous. They include:

  • Defense against health threats and disease
    • Research shows that exercise can ward off heart disease, type 2 diabetes, the frequency and severity of asthma attacks, arthritis, cancer, and many other conditions.
  • Weight management
    • Physical activity is important, particularly if you’re trying to lose weight or maintain your weight. That’s because physical activity increases the number of calories you burn, and weight loss happens when you decrease your calorie intake through calories out versus calories in the equation.
  • Stress relief and relaxation
    • Exercise improves your sense of wellbeing and pumps up a brain chemical called endorphins – a natural mind and body high that helps you feel better and more relaxed. You’ll see a difference whether you’re doing aerobics, yoga, or weightlifting, or anything in-between.
  • Improvements in creativity and focus
    • By focusing on a single task – exercise – you’ll feel more energetic and optimistic, which helps you stay calm, cool, and collected when taking on any task. This improvement in your creativity in focus in turn helps your mental health.
  • Mood and morale boost
    • Moving your body increases self-esteem, improves your sleep, and lowers symptoms of depression and anxiety. You may even find exercise as a welcome relief from the day’s irritations as you concentrate on your body and mind during a workout.
