Come Move Well With Us! Free Fitness Festival on August 10

Did you know that most Americans aren't meeting the daily requirement for physical activity?  Being active is a great way to maintain a healthy weight, boost your mood and prevent a number of chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes.

Join us on Saturday, August 10, at Riverdale Park from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. for the second annual Move Well Sioux Falls event! 

This fun morning of free activities for all ages is designed to promote all of the great resources in Sioux Falls that can help keep you physically active every day—from our outstanding parks and bike trail system to the many gyms and fitness activities in the community. You can choose from more than 80 activities being offered throughout the morning as 15-minute sampler classes.

Here are just some of the ways you’ll be able to Move Well at Riverdale Park: resistance bands, boot camp, chair yoga, Pilates, SHINE Dance Fitness™, HIIT (high‑intensity interval training), self-defense and martial arts, pickleball, stretching, and Vinyasa yoga. Plus, there will be a special kids’ area with games from Hy-Vee KIDSFIT™ and activities from Wings Gymnastics Academy.

CHECK OUT THE FULL SCHEDULE HERE!

If you are a 5K fan, make plans to run or walk in The Blue Move 5K to benefit patients at Falls Community Health. The race begins at 8 a.m. on August 10 before the Move Well Sioux Falls activities begin. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer for men and women combined, but it is treatable with early detection. The registration fees from The Blue Move 5K will be used to help fund colonoscopies for patients in need.


These events also need volunteers! So if you are able to spend a little of your personal time helping out, you can select a shift that still allows you to participate in Move Well Sioux Falls activities—and you’ll get a free T-shirt!

For event, race, or volunteer information, you can email livewell@siouxfalls.org, call 605-367-8286, or go here.
