Get Moving in Auburn with Active Living Classes

September 16, 2018

Staying active is the focus of new weekly classes for residents of Auburn AL homes. Starting this fall, Auburn Parks and Recreation will offer free Active Living classes. They’ll show participants how to be more active in their everyday lives.

Aimed at helping sedentary adults move more, the classes will focus on realistic ways to fit healthy activity into their everyday lives. The suggestions are based on research that showed practical ways for the average person to get more daily exercise.

Most Americans don’t get enough exercise. A quarter of all Americans are almost completely sedentary. Lack of movement leads to poor health and a lower quality of life.

Members of the Active Living class will receive general information and guidelines about healthy activity. They’ll also receive individualized advice and instruction about how to fit exercise into their own busy lives.

Participants will learn to identify the reasons for their inactivity and find ways to overcome them. They’ll learn to plan activity goals and rewards. By starting slowly, people will increase their self-confidence about exercising. They can build social support for their new active lifestyle. Class leaders will also give advice about how to bounce back from relapses or setbacks. All this information will be presented in a fun, supportive atmosphere.

Classes are held every Thursday from 2-4 in the afternoon at the Hubert & Grace Harris Senior Center on Perry Street in Auburn. They will continue through December 13.

Staying active is within easy reach for residents of the Donahue Ridge community in Auburn. The surrounding area offers plenty of opportunities for walking, biking, fishing, golf and other outdoor activities.
