LIFESPAN RESOURCES PROMOTES ACTIVE LIVING FOR SENIORS WITH 12 WEEK PROGRAM

LifeSpan Resources has partnered with Clarksville Parks to host a 12 week program promoting active living for seniors.   Even though the strong association between physical inactivity and health problems is well documented, 60% of the population is inadequately active or completely inactive. Traditional methods of prescribing exercise have not proven effective for increasing and maintaining a program of regular physical activity.

The Active Living Every Day Program uses facilitated group-based problem solving methods to integrate physical activity into everyday living. The goal of the program is to help people ages 55+ make positive changes that improve their health and well being.

The program will be on Mondays beginning March 5th and will run until May 21st.  Start time is at 10:30 am and goes to 11:30 am at the Clarksville Community Center 2311 Sam Gwin Drive. LifeSpan can also assist with transportation for those ages 60+ who would like to attend.

There is a $20 fee for the 12 week program. If you are interested in registering please call 812-283-5313.

For more information please contact LifeSpan Resources at 812- 948-8330 or email Lucy Koesters at lkoesters@lsr14.org
