It's easy to get moving in Hamilton County

Posted by Renee Mahaffey Harris on Wednesday, October 26, 2011

First Lady Michelle Obama would be proud of the approximately 200 people who got moving during WeTHRIVE! Move Right! Physical Fitness Week, October 10-15. Free walks and exercise classes were held at churches throughout Hamilton County. You can see photos on the WeTHRIVE! facebook page.

But it doesn’t have to be a special week to get your body moving! Many area churches open their fitness classes and facilities to the public for little or no cost.

For example, the Word Family Life Center in Forest Park (693 Fresno Rd.) has an indoor track, a fully-equipped weight room, and a weekly Zumba class led by a licensed instructor. Everyone is welcome; all they ask is that you sign a waiver. 

Click here for a listing of churches that offer a place to workout or fitness classes. We’ve made it easier for you to be healthy, but it’s up to you to take the next step!

Renee Mahaffey Harris is Executive Director of the Center for Closing the Health Gap.
