This September, an innovative program that motivates seniors to get up, get out, and get active is coming to Cumberland Recreation and it will be free to join. Choose to Move is a six-month program based on scientific research that motivates and supports individuals 65 or older to get moving and meet new people in the community.
Choose to Move is designed for people who are not currently active, but want get moving. Participants work one-on-one with an activity coach to develop a personal plan that fits with their preferences and lifestyle. For the first three months, participants meet with their activity coach for guidance, and will connect at least once a month with their peers and coach for support.
“Choose to Move is unique because participants get to choose how they want to be active” said Genevieve Burdett at Cumberland Recreation, where Choose to Move is offered. It is not a fitness class, so participants don’t have to go to the gym – instead they choose activities they like to do.
