Health Fitness Gym

We take care of you

From March 1, 2015, a highly technological gym was inaugurated, next to the “Gli Angeli di Padre Pio” presidium, open to all external users who want to undergo adapted physical and sports activities.

It has been shown that in many chronic diseases the disabling process is aggravated by a sedentary lifestyle that itself becomes the cause of new impairments and functional limitations. The scientific literature suggests that this vicious circle can be corrected with adequate programs of regular physical activity and continued over time. In this sense, the last National and Regional Health Plans were inspired which, with regard to correct lifestyles, identify regular physical activity for the adult and elderly population as a specific objective, referring in particular to the Adapted Physical Activity (AFA ) that in the Foundation becomes Adapted Physical and Sports Activity (AFSA).
