Fall is upon us, but just because you’re packing up your swimsuit doesn’t mean you should toss in the towel.
Staying active year-round is beneficial for your physical and mental health. Regular exercise helps prevent heart disease, controls weight, boosts energy, and improves your mood (endorphins). On top of that, exercise doesn’t have to be a chore — find something you like and stick with it!
Staying active this fall season is easy with the City of Waterloo’s recreation programs. The wide range of programs offered by the City of Waterloo makes it easy to find something that suits your goals and that you will enjoy. There’s something for everyone, from swimming to dancing to yoga. If you’re more of a team player, the city’s adult recreational sports league CARL offers a variety of team sports.
Got a hectic schedule and don’t want to commit to a weekly class? Check out the city’s drop-in programs for quick and easy pick-up activities. Remember the hardest part about being active is getting started, so don’t hesitate — start today!
