Registered Veterans at Northern Arizona VA Health Care System will be able to work toward their goals of a healthier life, thanks to the generosity of local veteran Charles David and Prescott Planet Fitness Club Manager Brandon Thomas.
Planet Fitness matched David’s purchase of 25 one-year memberships for veterans through the MOVE! Weight Management Program and they are valued at $10,000. The MOVE! Weight Management Program helps veterans lose weight by learning about and making healthy lifestyle choices.
Exercise and movement are an important component of a successful weight loss program and thanks to David and Planet Fitness, some veterans participating in the MOVE! Weight Management Program will have access to a safe, encouraging environment to do just that.
