Contact Your Senator Today! This Legislation Gives You Fitness Dollars

For many years, I’ve wondered how a country could that generates, by far, the most sales globally in fitness gear, devices, and equipment can at the same time leave so many without access to informed exercise. How could we, the greatest country in the world, not incentivize our citizens with a “gift” to get fit?

Why wouldn’t insurance companies want patients to exercise more? Exercise is the panacea and a known gateway to health. Exercise is good for the brain, the skin, the heart, the lungs, muscles, and may even prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. And, we all know, exercise is the key to weight maintenance.

Well, the wondering is over. There is a more than a movement, there is legislation. It’s called the PHIT Act, and it’s already passed the House and is slated to be on the Senate docket very soon.

The PHIT Act would allow Americans to place up to $2,000 in pre-tax accounts like Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Savings Accounts (FSA) to pay for qualified fitness expenses including memberships, classes, and personal training appointments and for reimbursement of physical activity expenses, lowering the cost of living an active lifestyle for adults and children alike.

To make sure this very important legislation passes, contact your Senator. For Virginians, contact Senators Tim Kaine and Senator Mark Warner to let them know you want this bill passed because you want to be rewarded for all of your hard work!

  • The latest from Adrien
Adrien founded Fitness on the Run in 2004 out of her home. After spending 15 years developing her own personal definition of wellness and watching thousands struggle with theirs, in January 2019 Adrien founded Alexandria Wellness, the home for the Concierge Wellness Program and Corporate Wellness with Adrien Cotton. Over the course of 15 years, “FOR” was home to more than 1,500 clients, 25 instructors, and hundreds of inspirational success stories. Adrien is now-more-than-ever passionate about helping others view their fitness as a journey, not a quick fix. Adrien’s recipe for success herself has evolved from a rigid training plan of sweaty workout weeks to some days getting in her 10,000 steps, consciously breathing, her 7.5 hours of sleep and her beloved 5-Minute Flow. Now, Adrien believes the most important ingredient is making small changes for big results, even if it’s one new habit formed each month. Still passionate about fitness, Adrien’s clients appreciate her ability to make sessions seriously challenging without a “beat down”, a healthy mix of strength and metabolix work and ultimately helping her clients gain real strength. Adrien believes we all benefit from being curious about our bodies and our health and that change, or improvement, is always within reach despite what your “inner voice” or others may tell you. Adrien is bubbling with excitement to help Alexandrians learn the importance of a comprehensive approach to wellness, weight loss, and contentedness with yourself, and that every person has the right to feel good about themselves. Most days, you can find her helping clients with their wellness and listening to clients’ success stories and bragging about her twin 12 year old children and “fittest man in Alexandria” Bill Cotton. Adrien prides herself on her practice of mindfulness, meditation, and putting it all into perspective.

Alexandria Wellness offers achievable answers for anyone who is tired of chasing fitness and health without a clear plan, someone who has struggled and is not satisfied with their fitness and wellness or someone who is open to maximized healthful longevity and fitness along with healthful weight loss.
