'Fit for Life' Offered

Celebrate healthy aging and make a commitment to be 'Fit for Life' at the Pasadena Senior Center and the AAF Rose Bowl Aquatics Center.

Fit for Life is a free program to promote healthful activities and challenge adults, age 50 and older, to try something new to improve health. It will be held at the AAF Rose Bowl Aquatics Center in Brookside Park, 360 N. Arroyo Blvd. in Pasadena. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on three consecutive Mondays, May 7, 14 and 21; guests may attend one or all three days.

The sessions will feature education about a different health topic each week: May 7, Lower the Boom on High Blood Pressure; May 14, Eat Well, Live Well; and May 21, "Move with Ease," which includes dealing with arthritis, balance and prevention of falls.

Each session also includes a continental breakfast, blood pressure screening, warm-up exercises, stretch and tone movement, a walk through Brookside Park, or session of chair aerobics, educational talks, presentations, lunch and prizes. Featured speakers and educators will include the expertise of the Arthritis Foundation, Kaiser Permante, the AAF Rose Bowl Aquatics Center and the Pasadena Senior Center.

Fit for Life participants will have the opportunity to partake in a variety of activities appropriate for individuals of all levels of physical ability. Activities include tai chi, water walking, tennis, body sculpting, yoga, shallow water aerobics and more. Several of the activities will feature the Arthritis Foundation Exercise and Aquatic Program. Those who plan to participate in pool activities should bring their own swimsuit, towel and lock for Aquatics Center lockers.
