Thinking Fitness?

The Marion County Health Department and Fit City encourage all Health and Hospital, Wishard and health department employees to “think fitness” as we enter the warm months. Making fitness part of your daily routine doesn’t mean you have to be confined to the gym or spend lots of money on equipment. There are many exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home – and on your own time, without exercise bikes or treadmills.

And the best part is, you can get your entire family involved. Here are just a few tips for how your family can work in exercise to your lifestyle:

The health department also provides a free physical fitness program called Indy In Motion. This is a cooperative program with the National Institutes for Fitness and Sport and Indy Parks. Walking, fitness, aerobics and other activities are held at various Indy Park locations throughout the county. In addition, participants will learn about good nutrition and the role what we eat plays in our overall health. All are welcome to join the program no matter the time of year.
