A nursing home in south Los Angeles will soon be offering a free gym membership, courtesy of its parent company, CNA.
The facility’s parent company is CNA, which has been a big supporter of the local community for years, and plans to launch a free exercise program for all residents and visitors starting this fall.
“Our goal is to provide a safe environment that is conducive to healthy lifestyles,” said CNA President and CEO Dan Cernak.
“We want to ensure that our patients are not subjected to the stress and isolation that can result from their chronic health conditions.
We also want to provide an environment that helps people achieve their best health.”
The free exercise will begin at the Northwood home in South Los Angeles and run through the end of the month.
Residents can sign up online and can sign-up for the monthly workout in person at Northwoods Gym, located at 1435 S. California Blvd., in North Hollywood.
CNA will also host monthly fitness classes at the facility and provide training for residents in the community.
Cernak said he is confident the free gym will have a positive impact on the community and that the facility will help the community by providing free access to a safe space.
“We want people to know that we are here to help,” he said.
“I think our residents have a lot of respect for our facility, and we think that’s the best way to go about this.”
Cernacks hopes the exercise classes will help residents maintain their health and keep them healthy, but the facility’s main goal is also to help keep the facilities facilities clean and maintain a safe, clean environment for residents.CNA has offered free exercise classes to residents and staff for years and now it is bringing that program to a larger area of the facility.
The program will also be free for residents and guests to attend in the future.
The new gym will be located at 1565 E. Northridge Ave., in the heart of North Hollywood, and is the first CNA facility in the Los Angeles area.
It is located across from CNA’s headquarters and is open daily.
