About this course:

It is commonly believed that as we age, we lose muscle mass and the ability to move as fast and fluidly as when we were younger. Wrong! We lose this ability only if we do not put effort into moving our bodies. Unless we move it, we lose it. This course focuses on techniques we can use to motivate ourselves to move more in order to increase our good health. Besides a lecture, we take walks around the block to show you techniques on how to move from a stroll to a beneficial workout. Walking briskly is something most of us can do, and with the proper technique will keep us in fantastic shape. Note: students must sign a field trip waiver and an exercise waiver before participation.
