What You Can Do

  • If you are cleaning out your house and come across a Fitness DVD you’d like to donate, it would help us build our Fitness Library.
  • Improving your health this summer doesn’t have to mean changing everything at once. Set realistic and achievable goals and try one change at a time.  Add in a walk 3 times a week or choose a piece of fruit for a snack.  You can change your health for the better if you work on making conscious decisions about what you eat and how you move.

Stay healthy and enjoy your summer…you deserve it!
