FBTX ~ Complete with its ambitious classes, presentations, events and fitness programs for those over 50, The Branch Connection has reported a sharp increase in membership this year.

   Membership at The Branch Connection currently totals 977, compared to 692 last year before the $25 per year resident / $50 per year non-resident membership fees were implemented. Of that total, 304 take advantage of free membership via Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit or Renew Active.  These programs are affiliated with Medicare and open to members 65 and over. Staff at The Branch Connection can help patrons check to see if they qualify.

The Branch Connection logo   Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Mike Mashburn said the sharp increase in membership is because of the active nature of the facility, along with the Medicare programs.

   “We attribute the increase to becoming an affiliate of Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit and Active Renew,” he said. “We have also had a significant increase in marketing of the facility and recently held an open house, added all new TechnoGym fitness equipment and made a number of aesthetic enhancements. Additionally, staff have begun introducing several new programs designed to engage younger seniors.”
