LIFELONG MOTION: A community-based educational program for Wilmington-area Seniors. This program is open to all in the community, not just YMCA members! 

 

The aging process creates many obstacles for Seniors. Lifelong Motion focuses on ways to keep mature individuals active and healthy, a vital key to mobility and life quality. We strive to be an uplifting educational program for active Seniors as well as a means to encourage non-active Seniors to get into motion. There are no fees or dues to be a part of this program.

 

May 14th Seminar: HEALTHY EATING.

Diana Davis, a registered dietitian and nutritionist, will speak to us about the impact of aging on our nutritional needs and how to eat healthier as a Senior in Motion. This is a free event.

 

Our Goal:

To provide a platform to support healthy lifestyles for Maturing Adults Ages 55+ through education, communication and community involvement.

 

How we can accomplish our goals:
I.  Education- Inviting experts in the field to make presentations.

  1. Cardiologists (Heart Healthy)
  2. Physical Therapists (Treatment and Injury Prevention)
  3. Exercise Specialists (Flexibility and Mobility)
  4. Nutritionists (Better Eating Habits)
  5. Certified Coaches (Training and Discipline)

II. Exchanging Ideas and Supporting each other.

III. Encouraging non-participating Seniors to become active and live healthier lifestyles.              

IV. Becoming a voice for Senior Athletes in the Community.
