A momentary drop in the temperature this week, reminded me that it’s time for my annual “Fall Prevention” post. This year, my message is more personal because the subject hit close to home. My mother, who is 85, fell in the middle of the night a few months ago. She conveniently tumbled to the ground during one of my periodic cross country visits. She is a an active, healthy, senior, who can even play a bit of tennis when she wants to. She still fell. It was an accident, and sometimes stuff just happens.

Being healthy is more than just working out and eating right! It's making intentional choices, on a DAILY basis, to do things that are good for you. Physically, you definitely want to exercise, eat healthy and wholesome foods, drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep.

WOW…what a great summer indeed. This year, to serve community needs, we changed our summer programming by adding FAMILYfitness and OH-Athlete Summer Camp.We learned from past summers that many of our morning clients did not attend fitness classes because their children were at home from school.
