OUR APPROACH TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS

We believe that being healthy is more than exercising our bodies. It involves keeping all aspects of ourselves healthy by focusing on seven areas of wellness: physical, social, purposeful, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and financial.

NEW Program: Active Living Every Day
Tuesdays, June 1-August 17 at 10am-11am

Active Living Every Day is not like any exercise class you’ve ever been to:
In fact, you won’t exercise at all in your weekly Active Living classes. Instead, you will learn ways to be more active every day: at work, at home, on vacation, etc.  Active Living Every Day works because you’ll learn the skills you need to become and stay more physically active, such as:

  • Overcoming barriers to physical activity
  • Setting realistic goals
  • Building confidence
  • Staying motivated

This class will meet one hour per week for 12 weeks in person at the Grandville Senior Center. Registration is required.
