If you’re an older adult looking for motivation to become more physically active there’s a program that could help make that happen.
Choose to Move Spring Session is at the Prince George YMCA on Thursdays from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. and it’s free.
The science-based program can help get participants into the habit of including physical activity into their daily routine in ways that makes sense to them.
Participants will work with a trained activity coach to develop and stick to a plan geared for them by allowing participants to choose the activities they know they will enjoy and are able to do. There’s also the perk of joining the group to share successes and challenges.
The Choose to Move program is an initiative created by the Active Aging Society developed by the Active Aging research team at the university of British Columbia, with funding by the province. Since its creation Choose to Move has been delivered in partnerships with many organizations in more than 65 BC communities that saw thousands of seniors participating.
Sessions take place every Thursday until June 1. Choose to Move participants in Prince George receive a complementary three-month YMCA membership and an abundance of great resources created by the Active Aging Research team.
