FRANKLIN, Tenn., Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tivity Health Inc. (NASDAQ:TVTY), a leading provider of fitness and health improvement programs, announced today that it will offer AARP members a discount on flip50, Tivity Health's new healthy lifestyle program designed exclusively for adults age 50 and above, as part of its new relationship with AARP.
Tivity Health has launched flip50 in seven states – Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, New York, Texas and Ohio – and plans to add more states through 2019. AARP members who subscribe will enjoy access to a network of more than 10,000 fitness locations nationwide, along with discounted access to more than 17,000 massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic practitioners, accessed through an intuitive companion mobile application.
"For too long, turning 50 has been a daunting milestone for so many adults, and there are no programs focused on this population that take a holistic approach to fitness, nutrition and relaxation," said Donato Tramuto, CEO of Tivity Health. "flip50 leverages the strength of our Prime and WholeHealth Living Networks and connects those assets to a smart companion app that is innovative, convenient and fun to use. Our goal is to flip the script on life after 50 by making it easy for subscribers to take control of their health."
The flip50 platform brings together the essential elements for sustaining health in mid-life: exercise, nutrition and rest and recovery. It provides simple weekly plans with access to thousands of gyms, easy-to-prepare recipes and guidance on rest and recovery options. These options include in-network massage therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists, and relaxation techniques to do at home. The daily recommended activities are flexible and can be adjusted based on users' schedules and preferences, and the recommendations become more customized over time.
"Our relationship with Tivity Health will help AARP deliver on its commitment to Disrupt Aging and help those over 50 recognize the full potential of this stage of life," said Larry Flanagan, CEO and President AARP Services Inc. "flip50 is a new tool that will be added to the AARP Healthy Living suite of products and services, and will support our mission to help the 50+ live their best lives at any age."
AARP members can join flip50 by visiting myflip50.com and can download the mobile app via Apple's App Store or Google Play for Android devices.
