Finding Priceless Value in a Free Fitness Opportunity


CDPHP® member Kim Tomlinson is a busy woman. Like many people, squeezing a workout into a jam-packed schedule can be a tough task. Thankfully, she recently discovered an easy and convenient way to break a sweat without breaking the bank.

“My son mentioned it in a post on Facebook,” Kim said of the CDPHP Fitness ConnectSM gym located in the Capital Region Health Park at 711 Troy-Schenectady Road in Latham. “I thought, ‘OK, a fitness center located in the building where my doctor’s office is.’ So I checked it out.”

Much to Kim’s surprise, she found a well-equipped gym with state-of-the-art cardiovascular machines, strength-training equipment, and more – all available for free!

“It’s a nice place, with new machines,” Kim noted, adding that she sees people of all fitness levels using the facility.

The gym is open seven days a week and offers convenient hours that can fit into anyone’s busy lifestyle. Five locations are situated throughout the region – Clifton Park, Delmar, Latham, North Greenbush, and Saratoga Springs.

While Kim is a CDPHP member, she loves the idea that the gyms are open to non-members as well.

“This is just so wonderful that this is something free to the public,” she said. “It’s just an awesome thing that CDPHP has done.”
