Nat’l Senior Health & Fitness Day – May 27

By April 30, 2015Events, Fitness

Wednesday, May 27, 7:00 am – 6:30 pm

Center members have the opportunity join with an estimated 100,000 seniors across the country celebrating the 22nd annual National Senior Health and Fitness Day. This day is designed to encourage seniors to enhance the quality of their lives through living an active, healthy lifestyle. The theme for this year’s event is “If You Keep Moving…You’ll Keep Improving.” We will be combining this celebration with the Grand Re-opening of our newly updated and remodeled Fitness Room. Come see the space and try out the new equipment.

The day will be filled with special activities in addition to our regular programming. We will offer all our fitness classes free of charge, give tours of the Center, have blood pressure screenings and fitness assessments (a brief screening of your current strength, endurance and flexibility levels), give orientations to our new fitness equipment, and have healthy snacks, brain health packets and great prizes! Check out the schedule below then save the date and join us for a fun-filled celebration!
