“In January 2020, the Board of Directors of the AVA: America’s Walking Club, declared the first seven days of April to be “National Walking Week” which would include the traditional “National Walking Day” sponsored by the American Heart Association from 2007 to 2019.”

At VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Royalton in North Royalton, OH, we strive to make sure that our residents stay active and healthy to ensure they enjoy their golden years in the best ways possible! Each of our residents has unique interests when it comes to fitness – some enjoy walking outdoors at local parks while others get their workout in at our cardio drumming classes. With that in mind, we adapt our fitness programs according to the tastes of our residents, utilizing both in-house fitness classes and our vendor partnerships to provide a variety of choices for our residents to stay active. Due to our unique resident group, the classes we provide may vary from those of our sister communities so that we are all meeting the needs of our individual residents.

At Vitalia North Royalton, we offer opportunities for residents to stay active! This includes not only in-person fitness but virtual options as well! We have a fitness center with a variety of equipment and machines, and a pool to help you stay active. Residents are encouraged to join our exercise classes as well as stay active independently using our fitness center.

As our community grows, we are offering a variety of health and fitness classes that we will continue to tweak and tailor to the individual needs and preferences of our resident population. We are also looking to outside resources to potentially host a class for our residents. We hope to incorporate a variety of different programs, such as aerobics, water fitness, yoga, etc in the future.

When we think of celebrating National Walking Week, we don’t just see a way to stay active. We see an opportunity to interact with those in our communities and meet new friends along the way. In celebration of this week, walkers are encouraged to find the motivation to get active.

As a new community, we will be celebrating National Walking Week by launching a walking club! Walking Clubs are so beneficial for the residents to stay active and social. We may even turn it into a competition, stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram pages for details!

Throughout the year, we plan to continue our walking groups and hopefully use them to raise awareness for various causes. Arrow Senior Living has many traditions monthly where we can support various causes by hosting walking events to raise awareness.
