Well Being & Fitness

Well-being & Fitness

At Spring Enrichment, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. Members and program participants often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. One member sums up her favorite class this way: “This is a great program, I’ve learned so much about how to eat healthier and I love the classes. I’m here 3 – 4 times a week now to work out and I love the new me!”

 

Group Physical Activity Classes

Spring offers classes for all ages, all levels and all interests. From low-impact exercise and chair classes, stretching and strength training to indoor cycling, water exercise, and yoga, you’ll find a group class that’s fun, supportive and keeps you moving.

 

Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Standards

First lady Michelle Obama and the Partnership for a Healthier America raised the call; Spring answered it. As part of our focus on developing healthy habits in kids, families and our communities, we have committed to adopting standards for healthy eating and physical activity in our early learning and afterschool programs.

 

Healthy Lifestyles

Living healthy is about spirit, mind and body at every age and stage. Spring offers classes and programs for those dealing with chronic disease, joint and injury rehabilitation, stress and pregnancy, in addition to health assessments and wellness coaching.

 

Diabetes Prevention Program

Diabetes is a serious condition that causes blood sugar levels to rise higher than normal. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Currently, diabetes affects more than 29 million people.

Prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough for a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. Risk for developing type 2 diabetes may be reduced or eliminated by weight loss, healthier eating, and increased physical activity. More than 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes.

Prediabetes may be reversible; diabetes has no cure.

Chances are you know at least one person with diabetes and the likelihood that you know one of the 86 million Americans with prediabetes is even greater. Only about 9 million people know they have prediabetes, a potentially reversible condition.

The percentage of U.S. adults aged 20 years or older with prediabetes in 2009-2012 was similar for non-Hispanic whites (35%), African Americans (39%), and Hispanic/Latinos (38%).

Cases of diabetes in the U.S., 2010-2012
7.6% Non-Hispanic whites
9.0% Asian American
12.8% Hispanic/Latino
13.2% African American
15.9% American Indian/Alaska Natives

Over half (51%) of all Americans with prediabetes are aged 65 or older. Nearly 40% of adults with diabetes are 65 years or older.

Total: By age:
20 years or older 28.9 million
20-44 4.3 million
45-64 13.4 million
65 years or older 11.2 million
