A one-stop approach for therapy and wellness needs, Holzer Wellness Center, located on the 700 block of Second Avenue in Gallipolis, has something for everyone.

The wellness side of the Center includes a walking/running track, state of the art exercise equipment, massage, shower and locker area, vending services and a multipurpose meeting room for a variety of fitness and educational programs.

Personalized health assessments are performed for each enrollee. Personal trainers are available for individualized fitness plans.

"Programming goes well beyond what a typical fitness center offers by incorporating the expertise of healthcare professionals who provide the medical fitness difference. The center is the main location for expanding health outreach and education programs, resulting in a healthier and better educated community," stated Mike Hemphill, Holzer Wellness Coach.

A variety of classes are available at the Center. Zumba, spin classes and others are offered inside the community room. Membership is not required to attend the classes. Individuals are encouraged to check out the Center through these excellent options. A complete calendar of classes is available on the Holzer Health System website as well as our Facebook page.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the health benefits of physical activity for adults includes improving sleep quality, reducing feelings of anxiety, reducing blood pressure. Long term effects include reducing risks of developing dementia and depression, lowering risks of certain cancers, reducing risk of weight gain, improving bone health, and improving balance and coordination (reducing risks of falls).

Exercise recommendations by the CDC include: pre-school aged children (ages 3-5) participating in physical activity every day through a variety of enjoyable physical activities, children age 6 through 17 years achieving one hour or more of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity daily, adults ages 18 to 64 years completing at least 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking and at least two days a week of activities that strengthen muscles, and adults age 64 years and older are recommended to have 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking and two days a week of muscle strengthening activities. Activities to improve balance are also recommended. We encourage individuals to discuss exercise plans with his/her primary care provider and to aim for the recommended activity level but be as active as one is able.

The Therapy side of the Center offers an integrated program of total healthcare services including comprehensive physical, occupational, speech and massage therapies, individual health risk assessments and supervised fitness plans, plus occupational health services. Individualized therapy sessions and flexible scheduling allow for speedy evaluations and quick entry into therapy. Our patients include individuals with chronic disease, illness or injury, neurological deficits, balance and walking challenges, motor delays, repetitive trauma injuries, cognitive-visual deficits, age-related degenerative disorders, musculoskeletal problems, orthopedic needs, as well as speech, communications, and swallowing disorders.
