Cincinnati Gym to Assist CDC's Efforts to Help Millions of Americans Become More Physically Active
D1 Training – Anderson Township will host a free family workout class to encourage families to be more physically active
By: WJB3 LLC
According to the CDC, about 1 in 2 adults, and 77% of high school students do not get enough aerobic physical activity. This results in almost $120 billion in annual health care costs related to low physical activity.
The American Academy of Pediatrics states that both adults and kids should incorporate regular physical activity into their daily routines to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Being physically active means moving enough to breathe heavily, be short of breath, feel warm, and sweat.
"Research shows that spending quality time together as a family improves parent-child relationships and increases self-esteem and social skills," says Alice Trickey, D1's General Manager. "Also, families that make physical activity a priority early on are creating a strong foundation for a lifetime of good health."
"At D1, we believe in doing things for and with our community," said Trickey. "Anderson is a great family-oriented community. So, when we looked at how we could help the CDC achieve its goal, it made perfect sense to host a family workout class at our facility," added Trickey.
"This will be a fun class. We'll have activities that all members of the family can participate in. It's a great chance to sweat a little and have high quality family time," said Trickey.
The Free Family Class will be held on August 20 at D1 Training – Anderson Township, located at 8315 Beechmont Ave, Suite 40, Cincinnati, OH 45255. The class will be held from 10:00 – 11:00am. People interested in attending should contact Alice Trickey, General Manager.
