Beginning in May of 2016, the Milwaukee County Senior Fitness Coalition met for the first time. We are still in the process of establishing our structure and goals.
We held our first collaborative event together to celebrate National Senior Health and Fitness Day on May 25 at Wilson Park Senior Center.
For more information on being a part of this coalition, please contact Mollie Bartelt at email@example.com.
Often we hear people are looking for places to get started with fitness. Here's information from some of our Coalition members that might be a starting point.
Interfaith Older Adult Programs - Recreation & Wellness - Offering personal training appointments at their five senior center locations. Schedule may vary; call Eric 414-366-9457.
Milwaukee Recreation Department - A whole schedule of activites around the area. Also - don't forget often high schools offer their facilities (swimming) open to the public over the summer.
Sole Sisters Club - A private group dedicated with a great mission - walking, hiking, running and fun monthly events. If you are looking for people to get fit with, this might be a great start!
