YMCA memberships available

In the realm of healthcare, there is much to be said for prevention and its link to physical activity. Physical activity refers to all movement – walking, running, swimming, yoga, strength training, cycling, organized sports, and recreation. One of the most important things you can do to prevent disease and fend off bad health is to become more physically active.

Physical activity supports overall better health

According to the World Health Organization, “regular physical activity is proven to help prevent and manage noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and several cancers. It also helps prevent hypertension, maintain healthy body weight and can improve mental health, quality of life and well-being.”

Because physical activity plays a fundamental role in health and wellness, PHP has teamed up with the YMCA of West Central Florida. PHP members now have access to a YMCA membership at two YMCA locations in Lakeland. YMCA memberships are limited to 200 members on first-come, first-served basis.

Become a member of the YMCA of West Central Florida

If you are PHP member, you may visit the Lakeland Family YMCA at 3620 Cleveland Height Blvd. or the Fontaine Gills Family YMCA located in 2125 Sleep Hill Rd. Present your Polk HealthCare Plan membership card for YMCA membership enrollment.

YMCA membership includes access to the following services: wellness area, gymnasium, racquetball courts, group exercise, Coach Connect and pools.
