The Glebe celebrates day for health and fitness

DALEVILLE — The Glebe joined an estimated 1,000 local groups to celebrate the 24th Annual National Senior Health Fitness Day (NSHFD) May 31. More than 80 attendees at The Glebe joined with an estimated 100,000 seniors across the country to promote active, healthy lifestyles through physical fitness, good nutrition and preventive care.

“The festival is a great opportunity for seniors to renew their commitment to health and fitness, and The Glebe is proud to be a host site,” said Rachel Carson, The Glebe’s fitness manager.

The goals of National Senior Health and Fitness Day are to make exercise fun, increase awareness of the benefits of a regular exercise program for older adults and encourage all older adults to take advantage of the many health and fitness programs offered at The Glebe, Carson said.  Activities included nine healthy living presentations and 10 field day stations during lunch time, including corn hole, a “rethink your drink” station and a “learn a yoga pose” station.

“We hope today’s events inspired residents and future residents to be more physically active and to pursue healthy lifestyles centered around wellness,” Carson said.
