Health Clubs Open Doors Free for 5th Annual Get Active America! Month and Become Gateway to Healthy Living
Date:2/28/2008

This May, health clubs across the country will become the "Gateway to Healthy Living" for tens of thousands of Americans seeking to transform their lives and take better care of themselves.

BOSTON, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of the 5th Annual Get Active America! program, participating health clubs will open their doors -- free of charge -- so more Americans can revitalize their lives and benefit from the supportive environment and professional knowledge that health clubs offer. Throughout the entire month of May 2008, health clubs will be out in their local communities bringing information and inspiration to tens of thousands, helping them see how active, healthy living can bring better health and a happier frame of mind.

As part of Get Active America!, many clubs will be educating their local communities about disease prevention and healthy aging through exercise; and clubs will be creating programs to benefit families and older adults with a broad spectrum of exercise needs.

Research shows that regular exercise not only helps prevent disease and support healthy aging, but it also has a dramatic effect on quality of life. In fact, studies published in peer-reviewed journals over the past few years have demonstrated that habitual physical activity (weekly walking, jogging and running) reduces depressive symptoms and improves emotional well-being. What's more, fitness center members are more likely to pursue health promoting lifestyles and behaviors. And adolescents who participate in a range of physical activity behaviors, especially those that are characterized by high parental involvement, are more likely to have higher grades than those who engage in sedentary behaviors.

This May, enter your local "Gateway to Healthy Living" and transform your life.

WHO: International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) and participating member health clubs nationwide.
