Carlsbad, CA (March 28, 2005) - Major national magazines are taking note of a program that area residents can find locally through Kisco Senior Living. The Active Living Every Day program is featured in the March issue of Looking Good Now, a Wal-Mart distributed magazine, in a spring issue of Smithsonian Magazine, and is scheduled to be included in an upcoming issue of Vogue.
Why all the fuss? Active Living Every Day offers an alternative to traditional fitness programs. Those programs often focus on specific exercises and intimidate inexperienced participants-the people who need help the most. Active Living Every Day addresses the root causes of inactivity and helps participants overcome those challenges. Most inactive people, for example, mention lack of time as a barrier to being active. Active Living Every Day acknowledges that obstacle and helps participants find time for shorter bouts of physical activity-even a two-minute walk during the workday-as one of many potential solutions.
Developed in partnership with The Cooper Institute researchers, Active Living Every Day matches appropriate lessons and activities with people's interests, preferences for activity, and readiness to change their inactive behavior. Rather than tackling specific, assigned exercises, participants reap fitness benefits by fitting activities they enjoy into their daily routines.
In keeping with our commitment to be one of the nation's leading providers of senior living, Kisco Senior Living is pleased to offer Healthy Strides, a nationally acclaimed comprehensive wellness program that promotes successful aging strategies.
