Darke County Parks is hosting a series of fitness programs called Naturally Fit occurring the fourth Monday of every month. Everyone wants to lead healthier lives and spend more time outdoors. However, workout machines aren’t always environmentally friendly, and gyms aren’t very exciting. Besides, sometimes life just gets in the way! Use these programs as an “excuse” to schedule time outside and get moving. Each of these programs focuses more on fitness than nature, with everyone moving at their own pace, whether that’s one loop or ten. The September program will take place September 26th at 4:30pm at Worth Family Nature Preserve which has 1.2 miles of loop trail through woods and along Greenville Creek. The park is located on Spring Hill Rd. 2.5 miles north of State Route 502 West. Meet there, and don’t forget to bring a water bottle.
Did you know? Because of hills, wind, avoiding puddles, people, and obstacles, walking outdoors burns more calories than walking on a treadmill.
