Get Healthy and Fit @ Your Library!
The holidays are over. How are you coming along with that New Year’s resolution to exercise? Whether you had planned on joining a gym, walking or jogging, or finding an exercise buddy to keep you both on task, don’t give up hope.
The library is the right place to be. Your fitness goals may vary but the Lafourche Parish Public Libraries offer many different forms of exercise. The exercise programs are on regularly scheduled days and always have a library staff member attending. It’s like having your own personal trainer.
The Thibodaux Branch offers Zumba and Wii “Just Dance.” Dancing to the fantastic music will take your mind off of your real reason for being there. The Lockport Branch offers “Sweatin’ to the Oldies.” Join the group as Richard Simmons works you through a fun routine. The South Lafourche and Raceland Branches have walking programs. “Walk Away the Pounds” is an indoor walking program facilitated by a South Lafourche Branch library staff member. The Raceland Branch has a walking trail that is adjacent to the library and the branch manager is your walking partner. Maybe bowling is the exercise that you want to learn more about. Consider the Wii bowling programs hosted by the Golden Meadow and Larose branches.
Perhaps your busy schedule does not allow you to join in the fun at the regularly scheduled programs. Keep in mind that the library offers many different sources. DVD’s and books are available for your various exercise needs.
Whether you are looking for weight management, stress relief, muscle toning, or total health, your library is the right place to be.
