It’s All About the FIT

Written on: May 1, 2016

Our Sisters have been fitting right in to Holy Redeemer Lafayette, and one of the ways has been by staying FIT.

A recent flyer titled Empower U had this photo of the weekday morning exercise group. The photo of seven residents, includes four of our own, Sisters Mary McMahon, Mary Teresa LaBrake, Pat Kelly and Rosie Cauley.  Sadly, Sister Marie Cecile, missed the photo op– but we have it on good authority that she also attends regularly!

Empower U is part of the comprehensive wellness program offered to residents of Holy Redeemer Lafayette.  The program encompasses six components of a healthy lifestyle: Physical, Social, Environmental (sustainable nutrition), Emotional, Spiritual and Intellectual.

It is nice to know that our Sisters are thriving and improving in their new environment.

    Love this! As a DYC nursing grad who has morphed into a personal trainer specializing in older folks exercising, I love seeing them exercising. Recent study published in the Washington Post says that those over 65 who weight train regularly are less likely to have cancer and heart disease. Keep it up!
