New Participant: I’m having so much fun, I don’t even feel like I’m working out!

Repeat Participant: Oh, you WILL feel it – tomorrow! 

Join us at our free PKMove Silver classes for seniors 55+ to see for yourself.

Remember to:
– wear comfortable clothes (appropriate for the weather, layers are a good idea)

– wear closed athletic shoes, like sneakers (no sandals, crocs, mules, etc) 

– bring a water bottle (both parks have water fountains, but just in case) 

– bring an old towel or yoga mat if you don’t like to sit directly on the grass

– apply sun screen if needed

Indoor Space Needed! 

PKMove is looking for an indoor space to have our parkour class for seniors when the weather prohibits us from meeting outdoors. Prefer within walking distance of Hume Springs Park. If anyone knows of a church, community center, or business in Del Ray, on the Avenue, or even Potomac Yards who might be willing, please send us a message. Many thanks!

Read the incredible, inspiring story of Ida Keeling in today’s Washington Post. As she says, “Just keep going… You just have to be strong for yourself.”

May is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month

Did you know May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month? Physical activity can lower the risk of falls and improve cognitive functioning (like learning and judgment skills) in older adults. There are many fun ways to get moving. Our favorite is parkour! Seniors 55+ can join us at 10am on Tuesday at Hume Springs Park and/or Wednesday at Ft. Ward Park for fun, low-impact group exercise that will improve balance and build strength in your body and mind! Classes are FREE, but we appreciate donations… think of all the money you will save because you won’t need to have “work done.” 🙂
