Margo’s Story

Staying Healthy at a Lower Cost

Margo Smith

Client, YWCA Tulsa

Margo Smith is determined to remain healthy, despite challenges with arthritis and diabetes.

“I want to stay as healthy as I can for the rest of my life,” says Smith, who is 70.

Swimming three times a week at the YWCA is an economical way to manage her health. “I also use the stationary bicycles and weights,” she says.

In addition, she takes advantage of YWCA classes focusing on aerobics, toning and stretching for seniors.

“The membership price is affordable for me and my family,” she said. “It’s a great way to maintain your energy and mobility.”

Smith recognizes that prevention can be less expensive than costly treatment, and can provide a higher quality of life.

“I feel better every day and you can’t put a price on that.”
