That’s right! The Lafourche Parish Public Library has FREEexercise programs to help keep you fit. Once a week or three times a week, the library has a program for you. You can start out gently by taking “A walk in the Park” starting at the Lockport Branch every other Tuesday at 10:30 am. Raceland Branch hosts “Walk the Track” each Wednesday at 10:30 am. Bayou Blue Branch has “Walk Away the Pounds” every Thursday at 4:30. If that’s not convenient for you, you can catch the program in Golden Meadow on Fridays at 11 am. Still not fitting your schedule? South Lafourche Branch has “Walk Away the Pounds” each Monday at 1:00 pm, and Wednesday and Friday at 2:00 pm.
Maybe that seems too tame or you need more intensity. Zumba will get your body moving and your heart thumping! Thibodaux Branch has Zumba programs every Monday at 4:00 pm. If that’s too early for you, you can catch the program at the Bayou Blue Branch at 5:00 each Thursday.
Another option for kicking up the heartrate is the Hip Hop Abs programs at Thibodaux Branch every Friday at 11:00 am.
Too much “exercise” and not enough fun involved? Seniors can exercise by playing Wii Bowling at the Larose Branch every other Monday at 10 am. No heavy bowling balls to lift and lots of friendly competition. Maybe you just want to dance and have a good time. Line Dancing with Carolyn takes place at the South Lafourche Branch on the second Thursday of each month at 2:00 pm. You can dance to your heart’s content.
With so much to choose from, there is sure to be a program that fits your needs. Check the Lafourche Parish Public Library calendar and start your fitness program with exercises at the Library. It’ll be so much fun, it won’t feel like exercise!
