Work Up a Sweat to Your Favorite Songs During NALW!

Katherine Preede

The 2014 National Assisted Living Week® is only one month away! Start planning now all the exciting and invigorating activities you will have in your community the week of September 7-13, 2014.

One great way to incorporate this year’s theme “The Magic of Music” into your traditional activities is to plan to sweat to the oldies! Research shows the importance of physical exercise and your community most likely already has several cardiovascular activities throughout the week. Start downloading some energizing oldies that you can play during chair yoga, Thai Chi or other exciting workouts. You can even ask your residents some favorite songs or take a look at which songs you already play cause people to pump a little bit harder.

Playing upbeat and fast-passed music during workouts can be a great motivator for residents and team members alike! If you need some ideas on possible songs, check out our #MusicMondays on Facebook!
