Everyone can also participate in one of NRPA’s Top Five Ways to “Get Fit” with Community Services:
- Take a walk
- Go for a swim
- Enroll in a fitness program
- Create your own exercise routine
- Play outside
Participants are encouraged to share photos and videos online using #HealthyFontana and #NRPAFamilyFitDay. To learn more about Family Health & Fitness Day, visit www.nrpa.org/familyfitness.
