Move It Monday to Jump-Start Your Week

We offer simple, accessible exercises to help you get moving at home, at work, or in the community.

Weekly Practices

Regardless of age or ability level, sometimes it’s just hard to find the energy, motivation, or confidence to get back into a workout routine, but by identifying our own fitness fears, we are better equipped to address and overcome them.
You don’t have to completely reorganize your life to protect yourself from the onset of chronic diseases. Use Eric Adams’s suggestions from Healthy at Last to add more physical activity into your weekly routine.
Fall is here, and that means hot apple cider, horror movies, and a lot more flannel; but the changing of the season also means new opportunities for outdoor activities.
We feed off of the energy of others and find strength in their support. This Walktober, lace up your sneakers, find a few friends, family, or colleagues, and commit to a regular walking habit with a virtual walking group.

Dancing — whether it be hip-hop, tango, or jazz —is an excellent form of aerobic exercise that’s easy to do and accessible to all ages, abilities, and fitness levels.

Besides getting you from point A to point B, biking is an excellent form of exercise that can improve your physical health as well as save the environment from one more car on the road. This Monday, bike safely and reap the benefits.
