CITY PARKS FOUNDATION FALL 2014 SEASON OF CITYPARKS SENIORS FITNESS PRESENTED BY AIRBNB
Free Yoga & Tennis Instruction in Brooklyn
City Parks Foundation welcomes all New Yorkers, 60 and over, to participate in CityParks Seniors Fitness presented by Airbnb. The Fall 2014 season of Seniors Fitness programs will begin the week of September 22, 2014, and will offer free tennis lessons, yoga instruction and fitness walking in 14 parks across the city.
All activities in this six-week fitness program take place once or twice a week at each location through October 31st. Participants are encouraged to maintain regular attendance to maximize health benefits.
CityParks Seniors Fitness has served over 5,000 participants since it began in 2006 and aims to keep neighborhood parks a great place for community activity. The program encourages New Yorkers to maximize the health benefits of staying active at all ages. Even in moderate amounts, exercise can help participants feel better, maintain or lose weight, reduce risk of heart disease and diabetes, and minimize the symptoms of arthritis.
“Every day, New York City parks provide a place for residents and visitors from all five boroughs and around the world to gather, be active, and experience all that this great city has to offer,” said Airbnb’s New York City Manager Wrede Petersmeyer. “The Airbnb community is committed to making New York a better place to live, work, and visit – and we are thrilled to support City Parks Foundation and all of the important resources they provide.”
