Wednesday is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day – Join us for a FREE class!

downloadThis Wednesday, September 27, is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day and Decatur Active Living has a free class for you! This year’s theme is ““Make the Healthy Choice…Get Active!” and Bobbie Elzey is offering her class for free  this Wednesday. Join Bobbie at 9 am for Aerobic Dance or at 10:15 am for Functional Exercises for Seniors. Both classes are held at the Decatur Recreation Center.

This is also Healthy Aging Week so you may want to join us on Wednesday at 10 am for 50+ Walks. We walk 2-3 miles at a conversational pace. Meet new friends as you enjoy an invigorating walk around the City.

Flash Mob on the Decatur Square

Yes, you read that correctly! Yesterday’s Blue Sky Concert began with a great surprise – hundreds of active adults (and some children) participated in a Flash Mob! The event was the brainchild of Lisa Kiely from Park  Springs, a Senior Living Facility. Her residents participated along with seniors from Bobbie Elzey’s exercise classes and seniors and children from the Decatur-DeKalb YMCA. It was so much fun!

The purpose of the event was to showcase that even though Seniors may look older, they still feel like they are 29 on the inside. We all want to stay active and have fun, no matter what age we are.

We will be posting a video as soon as it is completed in case you missed this fun time.
