How Ken Stays Fit for Less
Most days you can find Ken Camilucci working out at the Woonsocket YMCA. But you may also see him at YMCAs from Lincoln to South County.
As a BCBSRI Medicare Advantage member, Ken can go to as many fitness centers in the national Silver&Fit® network as he wants for $0 per month. "Silver&Fit is fantastic and easy to use," he said.
Ken enjoys taking classes with Kristin Quinn, executive director of the Woonsocket YMCA (pictured above). “I like taking many different classes, from spin to Pilates. After I retired in 2016, I was introduced to yoga at Your Blue StoreSM and was hooked. And ‘movement is medicine’ as my yoga instructor said.”
In 2015, Ken received treatment for atrial fibrillation (a rapid, irregular heartbeat), and daily exercise has kept his condition in check. “I feel like I can do anything,” he said. Ken has continued taking classes during the pandemic since the YMCAs follow strict COVID-19 protocols. He also used his BCBSRI wellness reimbursement toward a home exercise bike.
“Blue Cross offers many benefits that really help promote wellness,” said Ken. “Thank you for helping keep me fit.”
