Choose Change, Choose Health

- April, 2014

 

It has been said “it takes as much effort to be unhappy as it does to be happy, so which do you choose?” This is so true. Yet we often don’t realize how much effort and energy is being put into maintaining the inertia of our unhealthy, unhappy, or uncomfortable state. Often, the initial steps towards change can be very simple, even easy. You start small and don’t have to change everything all at once. After all, what have you got to lose?

Please be sure to join us Monday, April 28th at 5:30 p.m. at this free one hour class.  Fran Manti, MS PT, will lead us with insights on how to safely start and progress an exercise program.  Discuss precautions for certain types of medical conditions.  Explore different types of exercise and learn why they are important.
