The JCC of Syracuse has started offering many local seniors another option for working out at little or no cost. The JCC’s Neulander Family Sports & Fitness Center recently became a UnitedHealthcare Optum participating gym. Through some of Optum’s health plans for seniors, a gym membership with the JCC is available as an insurance benefit, usually at no additional cost.

“We’re excited to be part of the Optum program and to make our facility even more accessible to more local seniors,” said Marci Erlebacher, JCC of Syracuse executive director. “It’s a good fit for us and enhances our already strong position as a participating gym with other health plans. It also nicely compliments the JCC’s other senior outreach programs such as our senior kosher meal program and Neighborhood Advisor program.”

UnitedHealthcare Optum is a comprehensive program designed to help keep individuals and families healthy. The JCC Sports & Fitness Center is also a participating gym in the Silver&Fit, and SilverSneakers programs for seniors, which are similar to Optum and offered through other health insurance companies.

For more information about Optum, and to see if you’re eligible, contact the JCC’s Nick Finlayson, membership director, at 315-445-2040, ext. 140, or
