Many of us approach the New Year with a renewed commitment to becoming healthier. We are bombarded with new trends that claim to help us lose weight and get in shape, however, the most effective method has always been to choose healthier foods, control portions and increase physical activity. Often we take an all-or-nothing approach to fitness but sticking with activities and making small changes in our routine can yield positive health benefits.
Activities such as swimming, dancing, martial arts and fitness classes are fun and they burn calories. For those who prefer a less structured workout, the weight and exercise rooms at the Recreation Department’s community recreation centers are affordable and convenient ways to exercise.
Exercise is not only good for you but it can also increase work productivity and is an excellent way to manage stress and maintain a positive attitude. County career staff is reminded to take advantage of the employee discount for Recreation programs and memberships. For more information on the employee discounts, click here
