Celebrating Family Health and Fitness Day with Statesville Recreation & Parks Department

Last Updated 9/27/2023

Health and fitness are integral parts of a fulfilling life. They not only contribute to physical well-being but also enhance mental and emotional health. Family Health and Fitness Day is a wonderful occasion to celebrate these aspects of life.

Family Health and Fitness Day USA is celebrated on the last Saturday in September each year. This national initiative was established to promote family involvement in physical activity and healthy living. It serves as an opportunity for families across the United States to come together and engage in fun and active activities.

Let's explore the significance of this day and how you can join us in promoting health and fitness within your family.

Why It Matters

  1. Family Bonding: Engaging in physical activities as a family can strengthen your bonds. It provides an opportunity to spend quality time together, fostering a sense of togetherness and unity.

  2. Healthy Habits: Participating in activities daily can serve as a catalyst for adopting healthier lifestyles. When children see their parents and guardians valuing healthy living, they are more likely to embrace healthy habits from an early age.

  3. Reducing Health Risks: Regular physical activity is essential for reducing the risk of various health conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. By celebrating this day, you take a proactive step towards better health.

  4. Mental and Emotional Well-being: Physical activity is not just about the body; it also benefits the mind. Exercise releases endorphins, which can boost mood and reduce stress and anxiety.

Celebrate Family Health + Fitness Everyday

The Statesville Recreation & Parks Department is excited to invite you and your family to join us in celebrating Family Health and Fitness Day. Here's how you can get started or stay active and how we can help:

  1. Outdoor Activities: If you are looking for walking + biking trails, playgrounds, basketball courts, or a eighteen hole Disc Golf Course, you've come to the right place.   The City of Statesville is home to over 20 parks and properties boasting these amenities and more.  The City of Statesville Greenway Trail is a great way to exercise while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. You can walk, jog, hike, and even bike on the trail while avoiding large crowds and motorized vehicles.

  3. Fitness Classes: If you're looking to try something new, consider attending one of our fitness classes. We offer a variety of classes suitable for different fitness levels, from yoga and Pilates to high-intensity interval training (HIIT).
