Yes, There is a Chamber of Horrors!

Those of you who' ve been with me for a while may remember my post Welcome to the Chamber of Horrors    about my experiences with the Silver Sneakers exercise program at the gym.  Well, one of the local television stations recently did a piece about this program.  A couple of weeks ago, WCSH Channel 6 visited the Saco Sport & Fitness facility ad interviewed the Goddess of Pain, Heather Stirner Nutting, and my friend Priscilla Farrell about the program.  I was able to grab this video from Channel 6's webpage to share with you.

In the video, Priscilla mentions that her insurance agent told her about the Silver Sneakers program and encouraged her to participate; I'm proud to say I was that insurance agent.  I retired nearly a year and a half ago, and have participated in the program also, although not as faithfully as Priscilla.  Heather, the Goddess of Pain is the fat-free blonde who would disappear if she turned sideways.



Silver Sneakers programs are available at gyms all across the country, so if you are retired or disabled, or know someone who is, check out the gyms in your area to see if there is one participating.  Or go to the Silver Sneakers Location Finder and type in your zip code to find the facility closest to you.  It's a fun and healthy program!

Note:  I have not been compensated for promoting this program; my health insurance pays for it.  Yours may too...inquire.  You may live longer and healthier for it!

I really need to get into some kind of "shape up" program. I was going to get going this summer, of course, but now the warm months have slipped away, and I'm headed back to school on Monday. Oh, well. Snuggled up next to you at SITS this morning!
