Topic: Get Moving This Winter (2015): Don't Hibernate, Instead Invigorate Your Life and Health With Physical Activity

Seminar Description: Don't let the cold weather put a damper on your exercise routine. Regular physical activity is for every season! It can help you control your weight, reduce your risk of heart disease and strengthen your bones and muscles. Looking for ideas on what to do and how to do it? Then, this exercise session is for you! You will have the opportunity to participate in the three kinds of fitness: Aerobic fitness, muscle strengthening and flexibility. Come dressed to this class in comfortable clothes and sneakers and let's get moving together (View the liability waiver form*).

*Participants must read and sign the liability waiver form provided during the class, in order for them to be able to take part in the exercises. You may also bring the completed form with you to the class and hand it in to the instructor once you arrive. Doing activity that requires moderate effort is safe for most people; however, if you're unsure of your health status, have multiple health problems or are pregnant, speak with your doctor before starting a new exercise program. If you have a chronic health condition such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, asthma or other symptoms (e.g., chest pain or pressure, dizziness, joint pain, shortness of breath, etc.) be sure to talk with your doctor about the types and amounts of physical activity that are right for you before you begin.
