After moving to a new town to be closer to family, Mary and Larry St. Germain wanted to be part of their new community. They found SilverSneakers at Anytime Fitness. The staff and members soon became their “second family.” Mary recently had a knee replacement, and her doctor attributed her ability to bounce back quickly to her activity with SilverSneakers and encouraged her to get back to it as soon as she could. Larry is affectionately called “Batman” throughout the community as he dresses up as the superhero to entertain schools and church fairs, even working with Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make a local boy’s wish to meet Batman come true. The couple embodies wellness through movement, social engagement and community involvement. This superhero couple is an inspiration to all who meet them.
