AMERICA ON THE MOVE … PARTICIPATE IN EDEN YMCA ACTIVITIES …
Activate America’s initiative called “America on the Move” is a national nonprofit foundation helping individuals, families and communities make positive changes to improve their health and quality of life. The Foundation’s research shows that by making just a few small changes in daily routines, including increasing the number of steps taken each day by 2000 and reducing 100 calories from daily diets, Americans can control the obesity epidemic plaguing our country. September 23-30, has been designated as American on the Move Week in 2011.
With this in mind, the Eden Family YMCA is encouraging the community to “get moving” and the doors are open for participation in fitness classes and scheduled free events to take place throughout the week. The Lifeline Screening on Thursday involves a cost and pre-registration. The public is invited to participate in these activities. The participant will be asked to track their steps on the appropriate form, using the activity conversion chart. Ask the Member Services Representative for the America on the Move tracking form. Each class or event participant will be entered into a daily drawing for a chance to win a one-month family membership. The membership must be redeemed by a new member. It will not apply to existing memberships. If a member’s name is drawn, the member may redeem the prize for a family member or friend.
Call the Eden YMCA (623-8496) or visit the website (edenymca.org) for a list all our fitness classes, descriptions and times.
