Be Healthy

Free Health Event
Stay Active because you can have:

A healthy heart
Regular physical activity can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and can reduce the risk of illnesses such as type 2 diabetes or heart disease.
Strong bones
Exercise is necessary to build strong, healthy bones and can help slow the bone loss associated with getting older.
A sense of well-being
Being in good shape can give you more energy, reduce anxiety and depression, improve self-esteem, and help you better manage stress.
A good social life
Staying active is a great way to have fun, make new friends, and spend quality time with family.
A better, healthier body
You look better when you’re in shape. Staying active helps you tone muscles and maintain a healthy weight—it can even improve your health and posture.
Set Your Goals
·  Be realistic.  Goals should be challenging, but attainable. An unreachable goal will only be discouraging.
·  Think short-term. Live for the moment. Goals must be meaningful and reachable in the near future.
·  Write it down.  Write out your goals on post-it notes and put them where you can see them every day like the bathroom mirror.
·  Keep it simple. Goals should be straightforward and restricted to one major behavior
Be Active
Make a conscious effort to be active every day. Go on a brisk walk. This is a great way to burn off extra calories. Take the stairs instead of elevator, park farther away from a place you’re visiting.

Team up with a Pro
Join the Fit-Twist Meetup and come to our mostly free activities.  Soon, you will look and feel better than you’ve ever been before.
Go for a walk in a nearby park or sign up for a group yoga class.
