ACTIVE LIVING WORKSHOPS BEGIN SEPTEMBER 7

Parks and Recreation received instructor training grant for program

Aging Partners and the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department invite senior citizens and the public to a 12-week series of free workshops on staying physically active.  The Active Living Every Day (ALED) workshops are from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursdays from September 7 through November 30 at the Lake Street Senior Center in the St. James United Methodist Church, 2400 S. 11th St.  Registration is required by calling Aging Partners at 402-441-7575 by 4:30 p.m. on the Tuesday before the session.  There is no class on November 23.

“Those who’ve taken part in the workshop in other parts of the country report they are exercising more, eating healthier and burning calories,” said Peggy Apthorpe, Aging Partners Health and Fitness Director.  “Participants will learn the skills necessary to make simple lifestyle changes that will enable them to become and stay physically active on a daily basis.”

Participants will learn how to create an activity plan that fits their preferences and lifestyle, with tasks like housekeeping and shopping incorporated into the plan.  The workshops will also address the causes of inactivity and help participants overcome those challenges.  Participants can attend as many workshops as they want, and are encouraged to attend as many as possible.

Aging Partners is partnering with Lincoln Parks and Recreation to present the workshops, which are made possible by an instructor training grant from the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Parks and Recreation is one of only 46 similar agencies to receive the ALED grant.  The ALED program is based on discoveries that physical activity need not be strenuous or time consuming to benefit health, and people are more likely to become and stay physically active when taught the appropriate lifestyle skills.

More information on Aging Partners is available at aging.lincoln.ne.gov.  More information on Lincoln Parks and Recreation can be found at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.  More information on the NRPA is available at nrpa.org.
