Eastside Wellness CenterGreat News for State of Maine Retirees!
The Eastside Wellness Center on the AMHI campus in Augusta and the Bangor Wellness Center on the Dorothea Dix campus are now open to retired State of Maine employees and their spouses who are covered by the State’s Aetna plan (their cards have the Maine State Seal). Unfortunately, it is not open to all public service retirees – such as teachers.
Both Centers have cardiovascular equipment, weight rooms, and rooms for classes. Classes include Pilates, cardio & tone, and the new senior classes. So get fit, stay fit, and have fun!
They are open Monday thru Thursday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Fridays from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
To take advantage of this benefit, show your Aetna card, fill out a membership form, bring a doctor’s note, and take the Health Risk Assessment (HRA). Now you can sign up for an hour’s orientation during which you and your trainer will design a program just for you.
This is a great, free, opportunity for retirees. Please check out a Wellness Center soon and go often if you live in the area, or if you live at a distance, visit whenever you happen to be in the area.
