Check out our new fitness tracking program

We're so excited about this new app, we're currently also making it available to all Center member staff, not just those in VitalHealth.

The program provides a little extra motivation to meet aspirations for a healthy, active lifestyle. The only thing needed to participate is a Smartphone (there’s no tracker/wearable device required!). Easily set goals, track progress and compete with colleagues in fitness challenges.

Our first challenge, Step Up with VitalHealth begins April 12! Learn more and access the challenge link when you login to VitalHealth or in our members-only resource center (which requires your Center login password).


VitalHealth is a separate entity and all insurance related payments should be payable to VitalHealth.
