Aetna (NYSE: AET) and Active Network (NYSE: ACTV) aim to help members become
more physically active through Aetna Everactive, a new social community that
brings together virtual health and fitness resources with opportunities to
participate in real-life local events.

When people join Aetna Everactive, they get both encouragement and
easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides to health and fitness for all fitness
levels. They also get integrated access to®, the leading online
community for people who want to discover, participate in and share activities
about which they are passionate, and Aetna’s custom version of
Trainer to help coach and motivate users on their fitness journey. Aetna
Everactive lets its community members search for fitness activities and things
to do in their area (such as walks and runs) by asking them where they want to

Aetna largest customers – those with 3,000 or more employees – now can offer
Aetna Everactive to all of their employees, at no cost to the employer.
Employees as well as family and friends can access features on the site at no
cost, including premium content and customized training plans. Aetna will make
the program available to smaller employers and individual plan members later
this year.

“Aetna Everactive is a powerful tool to help people become more active,
support them through their journey, and help them reach out to get family and
friends involved as well,” said Michael J. Guyette, President, Aetna National
Accounts. “Today’s employers understand that wellness is an important factor
in their health care costs. We’re giving Aetna’s customers an integrated
program to help encourage greater fitness in their workforce, complete with a
communications toolkit they can use to engage their employees.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 60
percent of adults do not achieve the recommended amount of regular physical
activity. In fact, 25 percent of all adults are not active at all. Physical
activity can help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood
pressure, control weight and build healthy bones, muscles, and joints, among
other benefits.

“Today, overall wellness and preventive health measures have never been more
important and incorporating some form of activity is a key pillar to
maintaining good health,” said Dave Alberga, chief executive officer at Active
Network. “Our consumer wellness offering sprang from our own ActiveX workplace
wellness program which has fostered healthier living and employee engagement
for the past ten years. Aetna is the first health plan to take advantage of
our consumer wellness resources through the Aetna Everactive program and
should stand as a model for how organizations can encourage individuals to
adopt a more active lifestyle and benefit from improved health.”

People who join the Aetna Everactive community can get online and mobile
support to become active, from simple activities like walking every day, to
setting and sticking with a weight loss program, and even stepping up to the Couch to 5K training plan. In addition, Aetna Everactive community
members can take a 30-day push-up challenge, find local events, earn points
and badges, and celebrate their success with their friends and family.

Later this year, Aetna Everactive will be enhanced to include activities
families can plan and do together, such as youth sports and integrated
training plans. Members of the site will be able to create their own teams
that encourage life-long fitness such as golf, tennis and swimming, and will
get access to a full nutrition capability such as menu planning and shopping
lists. In the future, they also will be able to purchase discounted health and
fitness goods and apparel through the site.
