Fitness & Wellness
Just because you're not sick doesn't mean you're healthy. It's everyone's responsibility to take charge of his or her personal health, and for most of us that means more exercise, better nutrition and less stress. Fortunately, most Baptist facilities include a variety of wellness and fitness options.
Better health begins with education. A number of our hospitals offer classes on a wide range of health issues, from dealing with chronic diseases to understanding good nutrition to finding coping strategies for stressful times. Taught by Baptist employees and guest experts, these programs are typically free and open to the public. We also offer support groups for adults and children and occasional seminars offering a more in-depth look at selected health and wellness topics.
Several of our facilities also have on-site fitness centers that offer memberships to the general public. In addition to weights and cardiovascular equipment, these centers often host exercise classes in areas as diverse as aerobics, Tai Chi, Pilates, yoga and aquatics.
