New health facility to offer free classes downtown

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - El Rio Health Center and Tucson Medical Center have partnered to open a new facility downtown. 

The Health on Broadway facility, 1 W. Broadway, will provide health and fitness services. 

Shelley Whitlatch, El Rio Health Center's wellness manager, said the programs El Rio currently offers have been successful. The current programs are free to patients and their families and El Rio employees and their families.

Whitlatch said more programs will be added and held at Health on Broadway, and they will be free to everyone.

“More classes there for people working downtown, whether they're our patients or not.”

Margaret Beymer, 70, has been participating in the programs for about three years. She has had diabetes for about 40 years.

“I learned more in that first session than I learned in the past 30 years. And it was motivation for me to continue."

Beymer said since she first began taking wellness and fitness classes at El Rio, she has lost 50 pounds.

“I have been able to reduce levels of some of the medications I take, so i know it works."
