Hoosiers need to get fit. According to America’s Health Rankings, Indiana is #41, making it one of the nation’s unhealthiest states. While smoking and violent crime have decreased in the past couple of years, obesity, diabetes, and drug deaths have increased.
In Indianapolis, the Marion County Public Health Department, Indy Parks, the National Institute for Fitness and Sport in partnership with other community partners aim to change that with Indy in Motion, a free fitness and health program.
Indy in Motion offers a range of opportunities to get fit and to learn healthy behaviors at eleven City Parks and other community organizations. The sole Midtown location is Broad Ripple Park, 1550 Broad Ripple Ave.
By registering at any of the participating Indy in Motion sites during the scheduled activities, you’ll receive free access to activities, which include:
- Strength training
- Chair exercise
- Educational presentations on overall health and nutrition
- Health screenings
A complete schedule is available online. For more information call 317-221-8963.
