In January 2020, the Board of Directors of the AVA: America’s Walking Club, declared the first seven days of April to be “National Walking Week” which would include the traditional “National Walking Day” sponsored by the American Heart Association from 2007 to 2019.”
At Arrow Senior Living in St. Charles, MO, we strive to make sure that our residents stay active and healthy to ensure they enjoy their golden years in the best ways possible! One is never too old to exercise and stay in shape. As more people are passionate about making the most of their retirement, fitness has become an integral part of aging gracefully. Many seniors believe that they should cut back on their physical exercise when they get older. In fact, this is not the case at all. As we age, it is important to have a plan in place to stay active. The fitness world has evolved over time to include lots of exciting programs for adults over the age of 65. Each of our residents has unique interests when it comes to fitness – some enjoy water aerobics while others get their workout in at our cardio drumming classes. With that in mind, we adapt our fitness programs according to the tastes of our residents, utilizing both in-house fitness classes and our vendor partnerships to provide a variety of choices for our residents to stay active. Due to our unique resident group, the classes we provide vary across all of our communities.
When we think of celebrating National Walking Week, we don’t just see a way to stay active. We see an opportunity to interact with those in our communities and meet new friends along the way. Our residents have the opportunity to stay active in their local area with the help of our Resident Services Directors. With local parks nearby, we often plan outings to walk as a group in the nice weather. We find ways to make walking even more exciting by adding in scavenger hunts or by challenging residents to include visits to new neighbors on their daily walks. Whatever the style may be, walking clubs are active across all Arrow Senior Living communities! In celebration of this week, walkers are encouraged to find the motivation to get active. What’s your motivation? If you would like to participate in National Walking Week efforts in your area, visit https://ava.org/national-walking-week/ to find out more!
