September’s meeting of The Ladder: Fitness and Health!

Maybe you’re thinking: “hey – I come to the Ladder to learn about what kinds of things can go wrong with bodies, and about the people who fix things that go wrong with our bodies. So why are we talking about ‘fitness and health’ – what’s fitness got to do with medicine and medical stuff?”

Well, the thing is – healthcare folks like nurses and doctors aren’t just there to fix what’s broken. And even though they love to see you, they really want you to stay healthy so you don’t have to come and see them very often. One of the really big ways you can help your body stay healthy and keep the doctor away (besides just eating an apple a day!) is doing things that keep you fit!

Not only apples can help keep the doctor away!

What exactly is fitness anyway? You’ve probably heard the word, and maybe people talking about how it’s a good thing – but what is it, where do you find it, and how can you get some? We’ll learn some answers to those questions and more at this month’s meeting of the Ladder. We promise you that 1) fitness can be fun, and 2) fitness is easier to find than you might think.

So bring yourself, a friend and some comfy exercise shoes and join us for lunch (provided!), light fitness activity, learning, and fun at the next meeting of the Ladder – Saturday, September 14th at 12:30pm. Meet up as usual at the UROC building (2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis), then we’ll walk over as a group to North Point’s Fit 4 Fun event just around the corner from UROC. The UROC building is reachable by Metro Transit bus routes 19, 32 & 7.

See you there!

The Ladder is a Society of Medical Scholars ages 9 to 99, and meetings are the second Saturday of every month and open to anyone and everyone.
