June 25, 2008 · Updated 6:13 PM
Exercise keeps the mind and body young.
Proof for that is Betty Redmond. She turns 90 this month and she does regular water aerobics at the Island Athletic Club in Freeland.
It helped me to stay active and do as I please, she said. And I made many nice friends there.
The athletic club offers a special treat this Wednesday for those interested in the subject matter beyond regular exercise.
Younger Next Year is a New York Times best seller written by doctor Henry Lodge and his 70-year-old patient on how to change your bodys chemical messaging system in order to live like 50 until youre 80 and beyond.
Jay Bryan, M.S., exercise physiologist and former University of Washington fitness and aging researcher, will be offering a review of the book and his input on the exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle for turning back the biological clock based on his education and 20 years experience working in the field of adult fitness.
The book is a compelling work written to motivate the 50-plus crowd to take control of their own aging process, Bryan said.
The seminar is free and open to the public at Island Athletic Club at 11 a.m. on Wednesday,.
Following the presentation, participants can attend the Senior Strength class taught by Heidi Bryan, certified personal trainer. Its a 45-minute class focusing on strength, flexibility and balance.
The seminar is part of special events at the club in May, which is National Older Americans Month. IAC is celebrating 10 years of serving South Whidbeys seniors by offering a complimentary trial membership for seniors during May, as well as special free activities.
