LAS VEGAS – (April 14, 2010) – A free fitness program at Town Square is making it easy and affordable for people to stay active. Fitness in the Square takes place every Sunday morning in Town Square Park and offers guided walks by Weight Watchers of Las Vegas, Inc. at 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. and group fitness classes for adults and children at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Fitness in the Square is presented by Yogis Unite Inc., a 501c3 public charity, and led under the sports medical direction of Dr. Randa Bascharon. Yogis Unite serves as an instrument of unification for those involved in yoga and other physical art forms.
“The goal of this wellness program is to provide a convenient forum for families and individuals to engage in physical activity and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Sharon Jalene, co-founder of Fitness in the Square. “We partnered with Weight Watchers of Las Vegas to offer educational instruction on weight management and provide guided walks for Fitness in the Square participants. Currently, many adults and children are not regularly active, and we hope this program will help jump start regular activity for members of the community.”
Weight Watchers is reaching out to the community through Fitness in the Square by incorporating its Walk-It Challenge, which offers a guided walking tour around Town Square every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. along with educational information. The guided walks will lead up to the organization’s second Fit Family Health Awareness 5K Walk on June 6 at Town Square. The walk benefits the American Heart Association.
“Our participation in Fitness in the Square is a natural fit as we hope to inspire the community with a positive change toward exercise, behavior modification and modest weight loss to treat and prevent chronic diseases,” said Heather Avila, director of Marketing & Business Development, for Weight Watchers of Las Vegas, Inc. “It’s never too late to start exercising even if it’s just a few minutes each day. That few minutes will go a long way towards a healthier lifestyle.”
Fitness in the Square offers guided walks by Weight Watchers at 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. and rotating fitness classes such as Zumba, yoga and children’s fitness at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. All classes are held in Town Square Park. A schedule of classes can be found at www.townsquarelasvegas.com. There is no cost to attend the walks or classes and those interested in participating should meet at Town Square Park a few minutes before class starts to sign up.
