Active Aging Talk and Book Signing
January 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
What if everything we’ve been taught about aging is wrong, especially the idea that aging is negative and a downward spiral. What if aging is an amazing opportunity? What if you have a choice in how you age?
Megan Callus, Functional Aging Specialist and author of Igniting Your Energy and Spirit: Functional Fitness to Renew Your Strength, Balance, Energy and Well-Being for Your Best Years Yet, will answer these questions and tell us why:
– There is such a huge difference in how people age which becomes noticeable by the time we get to our 50’s and 60’s.
– Our genetics only make up a fraction of how long we live and how well we age.
– Walking won’t keep you healthy and functionally fit
– What you do now will impact your ability to do when you are 70, 80 and 90.
In this talk, you will learn why exercise is a key to a healthy body and brain and why it’s so important to start now. You will discover the proven techniques to decrease pain, increase strength and improve your balance at any age or functional level. You will walk away learning how possible it is to be healthy, robust, energetic, vibrant and functional today and well into your 80’s, 90’s and even 100’s.
Class will take place at TeaScapes in Atlantic Highlands – please arrive early to grab a delicious tea, as we will begin promptly at 7:00 pm with loads of fun info to share!
